What are collections?
Four months with no responses . Perhaps his name is not Teddy !
Novel concept !
No , it is not a Ford Model K .
This is an agate burnisher . It is used to burnish gold leaf .
The tool for making hooked rugs .
Perhaps this chair is by Charles Rohlfs ,Arts & Crafts period .
The movement is very clean and the cords look new. Usually very oily and dusty dirty . Not so with yours .
I'm not sure. This story is very hard to believe . Still.............it could happen . The movement looks like it was recently overhauled .
Lucky you........found a fool . These clocks were made in France for over 200 years . The name on the dial is the seller and not the maker . Research comtoise or morbier . Do you have the pendulum or ...
After 1902 .
Move the hour hand back one hour . It's a friction fit on the hour tube .
A stone carver would use this to texture the surface . Handle has been shortened/broken .
Perhaps General Billy Mitchel .
This was originally a treadle on a sewing machine or jigsaw foot powered machine .Someone has welded four steel pegs on it to make a footrest or who knows what ?
Have you removed the hands and dial ? You must see the movement to look for the makers marks . No one can answer you questions from seeing a photograph . The same applies to the other clock you posted...
That is not a tobacco pipe . It is a holder for smoking a cheroot , a short cigar .
Search ebay.com for like examples as "victorian door bell". You are missing the T handle for the outside of the door.
Is the back marked Allach ? Then it would be old .
A driedle .
Stair saw .
Reading lamp to attach on bed headboard . If wiring is bad have it replaced.
Look at the movement inside the case. Is it one day or eight day ? Nneds smaller or larger weights. The movement should be marked with the pendulum length in centimetres. Replacements are available fr...
Appenzell is a Swiss town. This is a souvenir piece for tourists.
https://www.antiqueclockspriceguide.com/atkinsclockco.php Found with GOOGLE.................
A GOOGLE SEARCH (it is free) will bring up antiqueleathers.com among many others to supply a leather you install. It doesn't sound like you have been very kind to the desk.
The first image is the back of the button. The front brass cover is missing making it very hard to pin down. You should add the diameter in millimeters, material (brass or steel), and WHERE it was fou...
Try some good auto body shops. That is just like straightening a fender. But easier since it is all straight lines. I too have driven over a tool box !
Do not restore it. Not even the wheels. It's all original !
That shows both sides .
Valve spring compressor tool made by K-D Tool. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-K-D-Tools-1046-VL-1A-VL2-E-Screw-Type-Valve-Spring-Compressor-Tool-/153438711632
It's a CARP from a weather vane .
These are trammels. One was used hanging in a fireplace to raise or lower a cooking pot. A household seldom needed two.
Not so Bruce. There is another post about the Seth calendar clock.
Do you have a specific question ? Do you have the key and pendulum ? Just what are you afraid of ? Being bitten ? A bomb ? Being sued ? The clock was made in Jan. 1881
Yes, Bruce, thank you. PARLOR not OFFICE ! Close, but no cigar for me.
The clock on the right is a Seth Thomas Office #5. It is time, strike on a bell, and a perpetual calendar. On the back is usually a stencil 1" high in black paint. A letter and four digits. The letter...
WOW ! Such a great piece of history.
Trolly car bell. Google image for examples.
Yes, mcheconi, this dummy recognized another dummy right away. But wouldn't the film be HUGE ?
Very nice. But.............can you still buy film for these cameras ?
Is it to keep a loaf of bread fresh ?
A champagne tap.
http://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_machine_company/serial-numbers/singer-p-series-serial-numbers.html Very pretty machine.
What are firmaments ? That is a float for a toilet tank .
What you see in the fourth picture on the side tubes are handles of small torches. The tube had a little fluid in it and the torch was lit with the lamp and used to light the cigar. The torches can be...
This is a champagne dispenser .It was used to keep the bubbly fresh.
The first item is a automotive valve lapping tool. I do not know the second. You are allowed to post dimensions here to add further clues.
A glove stretcher.
