  1. I love your quote of the month too! I've got a new S&W .38 spl with a built in hammer for Concealed Carry, which is near impossible to get here in So Cal. I hope I never have to use it either, but...
  2. Hi Sean! Anything tango style, I'm game!!!
  3. You got the "expert" answer right there! Hey TC!!!
  4. I love this even more because you found it with the box!!! So cool!
  5. Here's an example of what I was trying to refer to, said much better; The next link I'm referri...
  6. fhrjr2, I thought the same thing but after looking at it closely, it's got to be a secretary and wouldn't be on top, even tho the sides appear as they are that there would have been a base. It's an o...
  7. These are just gorgeous! When I'm out and about and see similar I've never known how to really tell what they are but maybe now I'll be able to look from a different angle. I don't even know if I've...
  8. I love just about anything ballerina. In order for us to give you info so that you may look up the value elsewhere, we aren't able to do that for you. What we can do is give you our opinions, many h...
  9. It's a beauty!
  10. And ya know, there are many times we come across things, at least I know I do this more than I'd like to think but working on that, but we see a piece and miss the obvious thing. This choker is just ...
  11. Thank you FrankoA for the love. Much appreciated!
  12. Thanks for the love aura! much appreciated!
  13. Lol good point. I think these were originally made for swag lamps and chandeliers, mostly swag lamps I think! LOL a fish hook! That must be for the one that got away!!! Silly man!
  14. OMG I love these!!! I have to tell you, there is a lady on Etsy that sells "exotic" seeds from around the world and this lady makes a killing. She has to hire people to help her pack and ship orders...
  15. I don't see where I said thank you to aura, so...thank you aura for stopping in !
  16. Truthordare, you are correct. This piece is definitely Native American made and set in sterling silver. That's my fault for not being able to get a clear photo to show the inside of the band. I wil...
  17. Hi there krysciobrad! It's a beauty for sure and seems like you are correct on the types of stones. I believe this is from the 60's 70's era, could almost say positively but I don't dare. Regardles...
  18. I found this on the web; 1920`s. The image is "the green man". Stomps Burkhardt is one of the better known manufacturers. Kind of creepy but was a big hit of the day back then!
  19. Here's one to get you started learning about them. Then in the search bar within the site, type in antique wooden marbles, or just wood...
  20. Wow! Looks like the things I have a thing about collecting too. I love old dice and marbles. I don't have any wood marbles though. You are correct, these are old wooden marbles and those dice are ...
  21. Ditto to bb2's comment! What an amazing job you have done here! I'm very impressed!!
  22. We have some great knowledgeable members here that know all about music. So, in the meantime, before they come on to tell you exactly what they are, you might try googling vintage bullet mics. I kno...
  23. It's gorgeous. You found it? haha, sweet! Can you possibly get a photo of the markings inside and tell us what it says as well. Just go to your post, click the edit and you can add 2 more photos. ...
  24. pglenn1970, I held my tongue about this yesterday when I answered to your comment but it's been bugging me. If you have a natural piece of turquoise, even if it has been stabilized or backed, it is i...
  25. I didn't know what the "heat ring' was exactly about before. But I do now! It's from the old wood burning and potbelly stoves, the burners had the removable plate, when you remove that, the heat rin...
  26. Here's a great site where I just learned something new too, within the first few minutes!
  27. Here is a site with a list of them;
  28. I also see a number 5. I have never seen a Wagner with a handle like this tho. You are looking for the maker, correct? I'll see what I can find. There are plenty of sites with info on all brands o...
  29. OMG!!! Excuisite Indeed!!! Nice find there. And welcome to CW. Looks like you've come to the right place. We all love sharing our little treasures and enjoy each others company!
  30. Awe, thanks Mary! Ya know, I have never really understood that statement/name...Spiderweb. Whenever it's used, it doesn't look like a spiderweb to me! And, I've only found one thing on Lela Platero...
  31. Hi pglenn1970, thank you for chiming in here. A while back I thought I had given up trying to figure out what mines the stones come from and then along comes a stone, or 2, like this and the research...
  32. Thank you Mani. It's pretty spectacular even if I do say so myself. There's just something about it... Been hitting the research pretty hard again!
  33. Hi Mani! Thanks so much for stopping in!
  34. Wow! I would have never known although the back of the necklace gives a good hint of age. It's just gorgeous!!!
  35. Ken, and I am always so self conscience about the way my hands look now so thank you so much cuz your voice is what makes such a big difference! xoxox!
  36. Skatekraft, do you have any idea how huge my smile is right now!!! The pieces I'm able to find keep getting better and better. As soon as I see some good ones, I know I'm in trouble, but it's just s...
  37. Mr J you are always the sweetest thing! xoxo!!!
  38. Ho2, You got that right! Being a wallflower is just too boring for me! I still like to shake the house down!!! haha
  39. Thanks for all the loves to you; fort, Hel1, Thomas, Watchsearcher & GRF, (great handle) I appreciate you all stopping in!!!
  40. Thank you Ken...I have to agree ;))))))
  41. Thanks so much Mr J. I am on cloud nine right now. People just don't find these like I did, I don't mean to sound "uppity", I think we all have a knack for our passions though, don't you?! I'm so g...
  42. Hey Mary, Why don't you come with me? It would be tons of fun, it's just for a couple hours and you'd get to see where I'm located. I would love to have you be my "date"!
  43. You can go to the Torrance library, maybe on line, and look thru historic pics from there or even call the city hall.
  44. I was going to say, it's from California but I see you knew that. You don't know when he lived there? Geez, my guess would be the 50's or 60's. They definitely don't have signs like that now around...
  45. Too cute! Were all the "Lee" sisters??? I didn't realize there were so many!
  46. Thank you Jenni. You always notice the great points! Much appreciated!
