  1. Thanks much craig and brunswick. scott
  2. Here is a similar example: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/30420-boch-freres-belgian-art-pottery-vase-wi Food for thought-- I am not well versed on the ware, but see several similaritie...
  3. Glad to help. I would caution against "looks like" identifications in antique photographs. Without provenance or some period documentation, most looks like are not. It has been a cottage indust...
  4. Looks like a nice album-- any other photos in it? If so, post them. Disagree with any attributions to Lincoln family on the last two images. Lincoln/ famous general images are found in many C...
  5. Not a tiffany piece and not high quality either. Also believe the estimate is very high. scott
  6. The Indian Head patch is for the 2nd Infantry Division (still used today). The chevrons are overseas service (US). The "153" is German-- don't recall if the number represents a Division or Regimen...
  7. Most WW2 pilots were commissioned lieutenants. There were also warrant officers and enlisted pilots. scott
  8. Nice Empire table. Probably dates from the 1840s- 60s. Looks like the mahogany is a veneer. scott
  9. It is doubtful as the article specifically mentions he went directly into the Army Air Corps. Additionally, a search on the database doesn't yield his name. scott
  10. Yep-- I'd say you have a couple of folks items in the grouping. Some from an infantryman (Combat Infantryman's Badge, and infantry collar brass) and an enlisted man (Good Conduct Medal). Maybe i...
  11. Glad to help out. He may have been in the 153rd pre or early war and then applied to become a pilot. Here is a database that would have him if he were an early war enlisted man in that unit: ...
  12. Your pin is called a Distinctive Unit Insignia (DUI) and typically just called a unit crest by soldierss. Your dui is for the 153rd Infantry Regiment. The unit was part of the Arkansas National Gu...
  13. Tastes of the times. More often than not, you will find mahogany veneers on the drawers with a walnut case on Victorian pieces. It gave a more uniform grain and higher quality appearance. The bot...
  14. It is an American Victorian dresser. Probably dates from about the 1860s- 70s time period. The drawers may have had a veneer on them at one point. I have always just called the smaller drawers ...
  15. Looks to be a 20th century tourist/ souvenir item. scott
  16. Thanks bracken, valentino, shareurpassion and laurah. scott
  17. Nice solid wood construction. I would think late 20th century. scott
  18. Don't know if these have a specific name-- I just call them multiple exposure photographs. Double exposure images date to the 1860s. I have seen images similar to yours from the 1880s- 90s in ...
  19. Wedges aren't just a European characteristic. It is common on larger American pieces as well. scott
  20. Understand-- I was making a general statement. 19th century American furniture is very cheap now. Priced at about the same level as particle board. scott
  21. It is a 20th century piece-- probably the 2nd quarter, so not an antique. The drawers may be machine dovetailed. scott
  22. Glad to help out petersen. These used to be very popular, but like most 19th century American furniture, interest has waned. But of course that means that prices are reasonable. Buy it now! sc...
  23. This type of table was the product of furniture manufacturer/ assembly line production. The tables versatility (stand, hall table, work table) contributed to the popularity. scott
  24. What are the blade markings? What makes you say it is US? scott
  25. I need to clarify-- nothing I see suggest that it was MADE as a unique piece nor that it was rebuilt from parts of other furniture. scott
  26. This table style is very typical of the 1890s- 1910 time period. Nothing I see suggests that it is unique, but like most antique furniture it is hard to find an exact match. ebay should turn up ...
  27. Looks to be Eastlake (1870- 90s). If you do a search for "eastlake dresser", you will find similar pieces. This piece looks to be late in the period, so I would think 1890s. scott
  28. Looks like it comes from the 2nd quarter, 20th century. scott
  29. Not sure on the maker, but the style/ wood is consistent with 1890s- 1920. Date may not represent date of construction, it may be the Patent date on some innovation in the dresser. I'd do a patent...
  30. Solid wood but not a lot of age to it. I would think mid to late, 20th century. scott
  31. Looks to be one of the modern decorator pieces-- retailed at Hobby Lobby and similar stores in the US. scott
  32. Agree that it is artillery-- from crossed cannons. The lion head would make me think UK in origin. Some good photos/ details on the markings would be helpful. scott
  33. It is typical American Empire-- probably dates from about 1850- 60s. Some additional photos of the drawer joints and back should confirm the age. These are not in vogue now and are bargain price...
  34. It is a fraternal sword from the late 19th/ early 20th century. Blade markings may help to narrow the date. These are readily available and don't command much interest or value. While you may s...
  35. Nice photograph-- this type of of backdrop is often used for tourist views to show a particular trip or visit location. I see nothing to suggest the man is a Pullman porter. Pullman porters wore ...
  36. Nice to have the Bronzart ad to confirm attribution. scott
  37. It has features that were prominent in American Eastlake. Would think that this is from that same period-- about 1870- 90s. Do an online search for "eastlake clock" to see examples. scott
  38. Beautiful woman and image! Brady was fairly prolific-- his studio work is desirable. By the mid 1850s posing times were minimal. Good to see another photo collector-- would love to see more o...
  39. Thanks cultcha. scott
  40. 2nd quarter, 20th century. Top drawer appears to be a replacement as the pulls/ graining don't match and it is undersized. scott
  41. These are souvenir embroidery bought in Japan and China usually by US sailors during a cruise to the region. They were very popular in the time and make an impactful display today. Your piece does...
  42. Nice find! They were still used in the US Army into the 90s-- we carried a bunch of them into Iraq during Desert Storm (even fired a few). scott
  43. 90th Infantry Division. The "T" and "O" in the patch actually stands for Texas and Oklahoma the states that the soldiers of the Division came from in WW1. "Tough Ombres" is a later nickname. scott
  44. Great looking badges and great information fhrjr2. scott
  45. Thanks for clarifying welzebub. scott
  46. I was worried when we first arrived-- the river near the museum had several large river cruise boats docked nearby, but apparently there wasn't an arrangement for any tour groups. scott
  47. Thanks much bill and thomas-- I appreciate your kind comments! scott
  48. Looks to be a 20th century piece and not an antique yet. Some photos of the back/ interior and drawer joints should confirm. scott
  49. Beautiful welz whimsey! And a GREAT buy. scott
  50. Not a photograph-- it appears to be a lithograph. It is on a card that is the same size as a cabinet card and from the same era. scott
  51. See more
