  1. Weldy, You seem to have a similar problem in that the serial number you provide doesn't really jibe with the ISMACS table of G serial numbers. Perhaps you could create a post of your own, and suppl...
  2. ho2cultcha, Perhaps it's what's called mutton fat jade?
  3. mp.kunst, Very cool. *snip* An unusual and attractive Cornish site, the Mên-an-Tol is believed to belong to the Bronze Age, thereby making it around 3,500 years old, though little evidence has b...
  4. rlwindle, Cool. :-) https://pdfpiw.uspto.gov/.piw?PageNum=0&docid=01990645&IDKey=2BFEFD9CFE1B%0D%0A&HomeUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fpatft.uspto.gov%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fpatimg.htm
  5. truthordare, Thanks. :-) Yes, this was my impression as well: "The form of the pot with decorative handle and finial on lid is especially well known, perhaps blanks that were used by several Jap...
  6. mikeigotit, Beautiful. Unfortunately, a search for "cloisonné thimble" turned up TOO many results. >8-0 e.g.: *snip* Cloisonné is sometimes listed as antique enamel but cloisonné thimbles ...
  7. truthordare, That is precisely what "octoroons" means. They even had a term for people with one-sixteenth black ancestry: https://zandalee333.wordpress.com/2013/09/28/mulatto-mustee-quadroon-octoro...
  8. truthordare, And this: "They had names for every generation percentage of the mix of whites and blacks descendant results." Yup. I can't credit the person who said it originally, but there is a ...
  9. truthordare, I love Mark Twain, but like all of us, he was a flawed human being. Reading his opinion (in "The Innocents Abroad," which I generally love) that he didn't care for Middle-Easterners be...
  10. truthordare, This: "I would become so immersed in the story that I tuned out everything going on around me." Me too. My father would become irate, because he thought I wasn't listening, and in t...
  11. Taysart16648, Lordy. :-) That looks like the office chairs they had where I used to work: https://trademarks.justia.com/owners/domore-office-furniture-inc-141548/ They were eventually replace...
  12. Ms.CrystalShip, I bought a book of the Grimm Brother's compiled stories years ago, but there was one story in there that was so off-putting that I ended up getting rid of the book. It was a story a...
  13. blunderbuss2, You're welcome. };-) Yeah, at twenty-plus pounds, most people probably wouldn't want to lug one from one end of Chicago O'Hare to the other. It got me to wondering about the weight...
  14. truthordare, You're welcome again. :-) Obviously, I loved the 1952 film (as did the Danes, even though they knew it was a highly fictionalized version of Andersen's life), and I also loved Andersen...
  15. truthordare, You're welcome. Based on your recent telling of some of your own childhood stories, I thought perhaps something else about "The Secret Garden" might resonate with you: the story of a c...

  17. AnythingObscure, You're welcome. :-) A couple more revealing tidbits: *snip* ...this is that self-contained portable radio with a handle on top designed to sit on the floorboard. *snip* ...
  18. AnythingObscure, Out of all that verbiage from the Radio Museum document: "At this point, normal functioning will be evidenced by illumination of the tuning dial..." You can get a replacement di...
  19. blunderbuss2, Fixed it for you: Radio
  20. truthordare, Love it. <3 I myself have some editions of things like "Alice in Wonderland," "Wind in the Willows," "The Secret Garden," et cetera -- that I bought as an adult. :-) Hans Christian ...
  21. Wayne1977, Cool. :-) AnythingObscure, Apparently, it's a portable automobile radio. However, even the radio museum contributor seems a bit unsure of all its capabilities, saying that it's also poss...
  22. Ugh. Two days in a row. That USPTO link apparently wasn't a permalink, so about the best I can do is a search based on the serial number (71477945): *snip* Mark: NEW HOME LIGHT-RUNNING Tra...
  23. tracywilliams65, D'oh! Fuzzy thinking on my part yesterday. The "Light Running" trade mark isn't owned by Janome; it's basically dead: http://tmsearch.uspto.gov/bin/gate.exe?f=doc&state=4807:lri9zq...
  24. Oops, bad editing on my part. This: Some of the links at needlebar dot org are either registered-user-only accessible, or defunct, but this one for a New Home Sewing machine user manual, and while ...
  25. Some of the links at needlebar dot org are either registered-user-only accessible, or defunct, but this one for a New Home Sewing machine user manual, and while the pictures aren't photographs, the ca...
  26. Again! On this one, you can zoom in and read the serial number (it looks to me like 3162858, which would mean it actually was manufactured in 1911, and is either a style/model A, E, or F): *snip...
  27. valentino97, What a little cutie. <3
  28. BakerCindy, And then there are those who would contend that the glass is twice as large as it needs to be. };-)
  29. tracywilliams65, I found another similar cabinet: *snip* Old New Home sewing machine 1904 model AB *snip* https://offerup.com/item/detail/304049524/ If that sewing machine is the or...
  30. tracywilliams65, Revisiting this. Needlebar dot org has a page for New Home sewing machines: http://needlebar.org/nbwiki/index.php/New_Home_Sewing_Machine_Company This dedicated researcher h...
  31. tracywilliams65, Beautiful cabinet. :-) I found more cabinets like yours, but nailing down the model or models of machines that were originally installed in them seems difficult. Here's one that...
  32. Ivonne, You nailed it: *snip* This stunning vintage art glass piece from Georgeshutte Becker of West Germany is dated from 1982. *snip* https://www.etsy.com/listing/688119609/vintage-georg...
  33. bobby725, Cool. :-) *snip* In literal terms, this is the most negative song ever recorded. The word "no" appears 100 times and "nobody" gets sung 46 times, according to rock critic Dave Marsh. ...
  34. Ms.CrystalShip, Another great story. Bless all of you who rescue animals in need. <3
  35. FromundaDeez, Cool. *snip* MODEL 5115 CORNER SPEAKER Beautifully finished in Plextone Grey with grey grille cloth and colorful Wurlitzer HiFidelity medallion. Has four 5-inch speakers. Offers un...
  36. wonderinginnh, Cool. I think I found a twin: *snip* Lobe[eco] Italian Metal Tin Serving Tray - 3 different Nautical Fishing Sail Boat scenes are depicted in these unique Rectangle platters. ...
  37. Brunswick, Cool. I can well believe that Richards is the 3rd leading artist to sell the most singles in the UK, as he was very popular there when the Beatles were still virtual unknowns. Cliff Rich...
  38. Watchsearcher, Beautiful. The garden you describe would be my ideal, that is to say, a garden designed such that something is either in bloom or in leaf all year long. :-)
  39. FrancoA, Beautiful. *snip* The Bedford Hours, (British Library Add MS 18850) a late medieval book of hours, was probably produced in Paris for John, Duke of Bedford to celebrate his marriage to ...
  40. If it is a model 185 made in Great Britain, the (underside) serial number probably starts with EN-EV, and was produced between 1958, and 1963: https://www.singersewinginfo.co.uk/185/ Hmm, there ...
  41. fortapache, Ah, thanks for the clarification on the serial number depicted. :-) Looking more closely, it looks like the base is fabric-covered, so it could be a model 185: *snip* I haven’t th...
  42. Whoops, here's another Singer with an eight digit K serial number: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/singer-sewing-machine-bzk-12-12-539396857
  43. Millson, Cool. Rare indeed, as ISMACS' K serial numbers only go up to seven digits: http://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_machine_company/serial-numbers/singer-k-series-serial-numbers.html It looks...
  44. Brunswick, Cool. :-) https://www.discogs.com/Chicago-25-Or-6-To-4/release/3813943 25 or 6 to 4 (2002 Remaster) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxJVHaP3zRo Here's an interesting song tidbit...
  45. Watchsearcher, It's all good, then. :-)
  46. billretirecoll, Ah, tough times back at the old homestead. :-( Yeah, Princess Leia might come back again, and you might well ask why. It's good that Princess Leia has your family as a refuge. Too b...
  47. Roycroftbooksfromme1, Thanks. I suspect it was mostly a question of timing, and the ever-changing, ever-growing Internet finally having the wanted information when I did my initial search. It lo...
  48. billretirecoll, This is such a great story. :-) It's not unusual for domestic cats to wander around their local area taking handouts, but in Princess Leia's case, she seems not to have returned to ...
  49. Gillian, Woo hoo! Apparently Iroquois Casual came in quite a few different colors: *snip* August 2019 Russel Wright's color glaze chart for the Iroquois Casual dinnerware line. *snip* ...
  50. Watchsearcher, You are quite welcome. I'm glad you're enjoying this. :-) I look forward to your own further investigations. In the meantime, here's the full obituary for William Clayton Clemones...
