  1. Thanks!
  2. Thanks, Rob. I believe that you are correct, though mine has glass eyes and is older, I think. I found a site where they showed this hardware and it was used from the mid 1930s thru the war years.......
  3. and i have to say that when you commented, i was NOT notified in my email, as I had checked, so that part of the system isn't working, apparently.
  4. I don't think that the X things ARE an embellishment, but rather something practical. They go all the way thru the brim to the top of the brim. I cannot imagine what, though. Perhaps to attach a chi...
  5. The Xs on on both sides of the hat, underneath. I wonder if this a Guido Sarducci kind of hat.....
  6. Sad indeed. I lived in Orange County in the 50s and 60s and Armon Frank, the saxophonist who played in the DelTones was a good friend of my older brother and would come to our house. They played the...
  7. Hey Char, Mine feels and sounds like it is hollow in the body and is some kind of ceramic or ???. It shines like it is basalt, but i can't imagine how it would get hollow. Its like someone made a m...
  8. Thanks Shar. Just looked on ebay at over 750 listings and didn't see ANYTHING like this. You could be right about India, based on the dress and the lion/gazelle chase scene on blanket. Hmmm. Maybe...
  9. Ron is right.
  10. Thanks Bobby. I would have NEVER figured that out.
  11. THANK YOU Chris. You are truly amazing! I LOVE this site and just suggested that they make a category for military bags, satchels and backpacks. I suggested one for fishing creels a few years back ...
  12. I thought that I had thanked your for that information, but I see it is not here. So please allow me again to say "thanks". I love this site. Now, if I can just identify the other basket!!!!
  13. That is a beautiful instrument, just from the little I know about them. It is possible that it is very valuable, as well. I had an old KK uke floating around here for years, that my 3 year old grand...
  14. Thanks for that info. Any idea what it might be? Or is it just a flower vase?
  15. Go to this site: http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/ . I joined to find out about a hawaiin ukelele that i have had forever and it turns out that it is worth several hundred dollars. I was letting m...
  16. I think that the tublular, poorly welded legs give it away.
  17. Hi, We own that EXACT chair. My wife bought it at Pier 1 in Seattle, about five years ago. It isn't old. Sorry.
  18. Thanks for the comment, but my question was; why is the bottom painted red and not the lines like one always sees on the #100 lure. It is a minnow, isn't it? You said that I showed everything but wh...
  19. Yes. I have been looking all night and it says Keystone 1920. But no matter how hard I look at the logo etc, I cannot see the word 'toys', but instead see at least '16' at the end of the numbers. M...
  20. I LOVE this site. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! Thank you, Sefdesign! I now see the "Keystone", but I think it is "Keystone 1916"!! When I clearly saw 1916, I guess I assumed it was 'Patd' before it. Yaaaaa...
  21. The piece is 12" tall. Not sure what you mean that the item has been 'recategorized'. I have suggested several new categories to them here in the past and they have actually added them. Fishing cre...
  22. Platform rocker. got it and thanks........
  23. THANKS! She lied! Could you direct me to where I might see another like it? Or perhaps the name of some companies that you mentioned.
  24. RiverTrout........ I believe that this will settle it once and for all. You WERE right. Thanks for lending your expertise.......MG http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/8689030#
  25. Being old and having been around things back in the early fifties, I also felt that this was something older than newer. Thanks for all the imput........MG
  26. Thank you, Tom.
  27. You are probably right. Remembering back to the early sixties requires peering thru some fog or smoke, if you know what I mean. I think it was the laminated wood that kind of threw me, as I do remem...
  28. I am pretty sure that the doll IS handmade. I guess what I was asking was if anyone knew what type of person in what time era might have made something like this out of theses particular materials. ...
  29. FYI; Items from Japan were marked Nippon between 1890 and 1921. After that they were marked either Japan or Made in Japan, until 1945, when they were marked Occupied Japan or Made in Occupied Japan f...
  30. Thanks, Candiceanne. I would have no idea how to go about looking up that face........
  31. No. No marks. Her head is all that is left. Even her shoulders are broken below the neck. I just thought she was beautifully made, looking at the eyes. They almost appear to be like miniature mill...
