  1. kopregepru2019, Cool. :-) Alex Askaroff of sewalot dot com seems to think that serial number might date to 1869: https://sewalot.com/dating_singer_sewing_machine_by_serial_number.htm
  2. NevB, Cool. Whew. While it's nice to have a copy of the 1933 catalog to reference, it's a bit rough, isn't it?: *snip* "ESSEX" DISH Oval. 6 Sizes. Round. 7 Sizes. *snip* https://www.2...
  3. Mike78, Cool. :-) *snip* 2,026,082 BOARD GAME APPARATUS Charles B. Darrow, Philadelphia, Pa., assignor to Parker Brothers, Inc., Salem, Mass., a corpora- tion of Maine Application Augus...

  5. curiousclare, Thanks for adding a picture of the makers mark on the bottom. It seems in keeping with the other pieces from that same pattern I saw online. Advice on selling/buying really isn't some...
  6. evrbetr, Cool. Ya learn something new all of the time. :-) I didn't know this particular tidbit about the Fenton cat head slipper: *snip* It is listed in the Warman’s Fenton Glass book as bei...
  7. Brunswick, This is one of those, "I remember exactly where I was" things for me. I was in a semi-public place (a dormitory common room), and there was a football game on the TV (I never in a millio...
  8. AnythingObscure, Yup, I get it. I think most people have at least one "go to" item in their household that they use all the time, but not necessarily in the way the designer intended. };-) Your ...
  9. Steptoe1, You said the magic word. I found this: *snip* JAJ Pyrex / Kent Orchard (1966 – 70) / Serving Dish / JAJ Makers Mark. *snip* https://kitschnware.wordpress.com/2015/10/28/jaj-pyrex...
  10. *snip* There were no flies on Frank that morning *snip* http://beatlesnumber9.com/write.html
  11. phillisforse, I'm so sorry to read about your loss. There's no getting around the fact that this kind of thing can happen when you have pets, especially cats. :-( Perhaps you could provide a few...
  12. Steptoe1, That makers mark is intriguing. It reminds me of a badminton shuttlecock. :-)
  13. curiousclare, Beautiful. It would seem that you already know the pattern name, and in china, that's quite a bit. :-) You didn't provide a picture of the backstamp, however, which is usuallly hel...
  14. Steptoe1, Cool. I recall that my parents had one of these (not exactly the same, but a German-made souvenir plate with a reticulated edge and a scene of a popular tourist spot). A casual search ...
  15. Hilde, Beautiful. It seems to me that your first picture is of the reverse (back) of the medal, and the second is of the obverse (front). I say that because the finding seems only to be decorated i...
  16. https://www.discogs.com/The-Beatles-Magical-Mystery-Tour/master/54463 The Beatles - Blue Jay Way https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Coz0TmK2ZIg *snip* The song was composed in the Hollywood h...
  17. Newfld, You're welcome. :-) Glass has fascinated me for decades. Nowadays I can usually resist buying more, but occasionally there are items that tempt me too much. };-)
  18. Everybody Is a Star (single master) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBvU7y5SOns
  19. Vynil33rpm, Excellent. :-) https://www.discogs.com/Sly-The-Family-Stone-Greatest-Hits/master/112692 Sly & The Family Stone - Everybody Is A Star https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTS8E8YATqg
  20. Newfld, Ah, I wish I had worked at Boyd Glass; my work was not that cool. };-) That excerpt in my previous comment was from a Worthpoint Boyd Tucker Torpedo listing by somebody who wrote they worke...
  21. Still poking around trying to figure out the color name. Being that your Boyd Tucker car seems to have the "2" mark, that would narrow it down to those produced 2002-2013. Boydglass dot net doesn't...
  22. Kjane79, Wow. A silk persian rug. It's good that it has built-in hangers, because you don't want anybody's nasty feet on that gorgeous thing.
  23. Brunswick, Cool. I have this tune (on a compilation CD that I'd be forced to consult a spreadsheet to name). It's definitely one of the greats: https://www.discogs.com/The-Harry-Simeone-Chorale-...
  24. kharrisma, Intriguing. :-) Yeah, trying to find a patent without a specific patent number can be...hellish. >8-0 I did find this copy of a USPTO gazette, which might help (it includes patents gr...
  25. Newfld, Cute. <3 My eyes lighted first on the adorable tugboat, then on the beautiful cobalt train, and finally on the intriguing pale blue car. I idly wondered whether the car, with its distinc...
  26. dragonfly1015, Beautiful. Some biographical information about Vera: https://retrorenovation.com/2012/07/26/vera-neumann-biography-and-comprehensive-online-guide/ At a guess, your scarf might ...

  28. Brunswick, Belated Happy Thanksgiving. :-) Y'all were way more active than we were. We mostly watched some tube and reminisced. A paper plate attached to a tree for a target, huh? I hope it was ...
  29. Plus which, you can see the leading "C" in "Country Squire": https://www.bransonmuseum.com/listings/1957-ford-country-squire/
  30. bobby725, Woo hoo! Yeah, even though we don't have a complete, unobstructed picture of the vehicle in this post, I think you nailed it. That raised pattern on the roof is pretty distinctive. :-)
  31. Vynil33rpm, Cool. My momma also had two sisters. Dunno if this is right or not: *snip* The 1959 DeSoto station wagon was built to haul in style! By 1959, the handwriting, so to speak, ...
  32. mbentley, belladonna1945, What nice stories. :-)
  33. Newfld, So cute. <3
  34. P.S. Very glad to read that your Sister and BiL were able to rebuild after that terrible fire.
  35. billretirecoll, That is one excellent picture of El Guajolote. :-) My family gave Tom a break this year, and ate ham. Maybe next year we'll give Porky a break, and eat something plant-based. Or may...
  36. billretirecoll, Happy Thanksgiving. :-)
  37. Vynil33rpm, Happy T-Day from a descendant of those fun-loving Puritans. };-)
  38. Toyrebel, Happy Thanksgiving backatcha. :-) Spam -- Mwah hah hah ha! I used to eat a fair amount of Spam as a child. My mother (who never was much of a meat eater) would fry it up on occasion to...
  39. truthordare, Happy Thanksgiving backatcha. :-) I'm not yet at my destination, but then it's only about a mile and a half away, and I'm not due until noon. :-) As to what we'll be having, I'll b...
  40. Ted_Straub, Cool. I must have a weakness for chop plates, because while I don't have any vintage ones, I do have some Corelle ones. :-) Definitely interesting story about the Seattle restaurant.
  41. Newfld, Happy Thanksgiving. :-) P.S. Love those glass bookends.
  42. Militarist, Cool. :-) I probably should be appalled by this, but at the moment I'm merely amused: "I then asked how he became a constable and he told me that the position was on the last electio...
  43. Re-upping for 2019. Happy Thanksgiving to Collectors Weekly. :-) Also, last year's link to Lonesome Electric Turkey seems to have become defunct, so I deleted it, and put in a fresh link: Loneso...
  44. Bauscher Weiden: https://www.bauscher.de/en/about-bauscher/history They actually have some gorgeous modern stuff (of course, I need more stuff like I need another hole in my head): https://ww...
  45. Here is the style of individual creamer and beverage pot they used to have at my favorite konditorei (no pictures of the little sugar cube plates, unfortunately): https://www.replacements.com/p/vil...
  46. ho2cultcha, Cool. Is the top of it slightly slight concave, or am I seeing things?
  47. ho2cultcha, Cool. :-) Yup, individual creamer, which is common in German konditoreien (confectionery shops). You'd walk into the front, make your selections, and then proceed into the dining roo...
  48. Cynthiarhn, Cool. :-) As usual, TallCakes comes through: *snip* Round Compote - Height x Width Beaded Clear by Ambiance Crystal *snip* Height: 7 1/2 in Width: 8 in Piece...
  49. fortapache, };-) Hlnat, Cool. fortapache is quite correct; that serial number (H371971) was one of 60,000 allotted April 24, 1906, and your machine is a model 27. Your cabinet looks like a mo...
  50. Shano, Beautiful. *snip* Ca. 1900-1910, Loetz, Czechoslovakia You are bidding on a rare 'Tango' glass table lamp, manufactured by Loetz (1848-1933). From the Art Nouveau period ca. 1900-19...
