Thanks vetraio and searcher. scott
For every time this type of knife is used as a plunging weapon, there are probably several million utility uses to cut. The style was popular in the Army-- more often plunged into an MRE or used to...
No problems-- just wanted to post what I had seen. scott
Doesn't look military related to me. scott
I have seen them in kits-- the design is lightly printed on the cloth and then the crafter "embroiders" over it with the thread. Here is a modern example: https://www.amazon.com/Apipi-Christmas-...

Thanks gatekeeper and buss. scott
Thanks rooster and finders. scott
Nice guest room hanging. Agree with emclaire-- it is from a kit. Sort of like a "paint by numbers" set. scott
Thanks kwqd and reeling. scott
Agree. Modern and multitudes available. scott
Should have said no originals were made, so no antique mirrors like this exist. scott
Thanks for sharing your personal family story-- really illustrates the terror of these rockets on those living in England. scott
Modern fantasy piece. No antique originals were made so not a reproduction. scott
Thanks for looking old stuff. scott
Thanks much vetraio-- appreciate you looking and taking the time to comment. scott
Interesting conversation piece-- I don't see an animal or a worked piece. scott
Thanks lata, kiva and gate! scott
Beautiful glass-- glad to see you back! scott
My first reaction is that it is modern. scott
Thanks racer and kw. scott
Thanks Lori-- if you have interest, take a look at my other postings on trench art. I have some other interesting planes and miniatures posted here. scott
Thanks fort, racer, 33 and tools. scott
Thanks much michael. scott
Looks like it is post- mint deterioration. scott
Nice quality-- really like the tinted photographs. The frames are nice too. These 20th century tinted images are really under appreciated in the market. I buy them whenever I see them. Thank...
Thanks much kiva and rene. scott
Thanks much peggy!! scott
Don't see a lot of age to it. The mirrors on the front are indicative of a more modern piece. A photo of the back/ inside should help to confirm or change the assesment. scott
Thanks much ivan-- I am not familiar with British units. Sounds like the Rgt had some travels. If you haven't already posted it, I'd like to see the Baghdad silk. scott
Thanks kiva, artfoot, ironlace and aura. scott
"merit" badges for some sort of "scouting" organization. scott
The cap badge is a nice addition-- probably from the soldier who purchased. My arabic reading isn't that great, but believe the dating on the shell is some variation of "1918- 9" an indication of t...
Thanks fort, larksel, vetraio, buss and ivonne! scott
Thanks much jimtim. scott
Thanks much lori. scott
Agree-- Damascus is well known for this type of work. Here is a trench art example from the early 20th century: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/168026-ww1-damascus-trench-art-humidor ...
Hard to tell-- need better photos. Looks like it could just be a pre- printed signature and not hand signed. scott
Interesting colors on that flower! Agree-- probably bohemian. scott
I wouldn't paint it, but it isn't a big ticket item; so painting isn't going to hurt it much. Do whatever will get it used. The easiest way to tell on the hardware is to look on the inside of the ...
Based on style and construction, I would think it is early 20th century. scott
"scottvez kill, burning, robing ... has nothing to do with free speech... and if so I'm ready for what ever comes down the pike ..... the a wind bag is nothing to fear,. it's just someone running ther...
Yes silverplate. You don't show the connection for the font and burner, so hard to say the original use. I haven't seen many silverplate lamps. I have seen silverplate in a myriad of shapes, ...
Not sure where you are going with that one. voting-- yes, but you can still voice an opinion. Limited for those in the military to some extent. scott
And protected for ALL Americans! scott
Funny that "free speach mary" who complains of riots and violence would respond to others' free speach with threats of violence: "my S & W speaks just fine when it comes to wind bags like yoursel...
Nice tiger oak piece. Believe you have a sideboard or buffet and not a dresser due to the size and two doors at the bottom. Looks great-- like it was well cared for. This type was popular fro...
Thanks much for looking stuff. scott
BLM's position is very well articulated on their website. Suggest you do some reading. scott
Well said welzebub! To be clear, I did not "advocate for riots". BLM has not "advocated for riots"-- the organization supports non- violent protests and civil disobediance. scott
