Thanks so much Scott. Yes, I have noticed in the past that what is said on a sales post on Ebay or Etsy or elsewhere is not always accurate and I take those pieces of info with a grain of salt. Howe...
I did notice that the label looked like a 20th century one so who knows.
I can't find the document now that I had found yesterday where it said the Helmers Mfg Co operated from 1800-1899. I should have saved the link but did not. I would love to believe it's older than 1...
I have another post about this showing what the table looks like with Old English used on it AND I found a label under the table identifying it as being made by Helmers Mfg Co, which produced furnitur...
Helmers Mfg Co operated from 1800 to 1899. Wow, this table is at least 120 years old if it was made in 1899.
Thanks Phil for your expert acknowledgement that it's not Eastlake (boo hoo hoo....hahahaha).
Thank you everyone for your comments. I'm disappointed that it is not Eastlake as that is my favorite style but I love it anyway. I used Old English polish on the top only so far and am debating whe...
I have this same set and I believe it is the Mount Clemens "Mildred" pattern. It is on Replacements . com listed as that.
Thank you both so much for providing links to how the handles look and how the mechanism of the handles look. I will continue to research the handles on this particular piece but will use it anyway i...
Thanks so much tubeAmp.... I would love to find a picture of this piece so I can see what the keyed handles look like. That way, I can have a visual and a pic stored on my phone so I can identify ...
I can't help you but I just wanted to say how absolutely gorgeous this piece is.
Thank you all so much for solving the mystery surrounding the center of the two covers. I can see how the covers could also serve as serving dishes with the design the way it is. Of course, there we...
Oh my goodness, thank you SO MUCH Reneewv for finding that information for me. It's good to know the history of this piece of art, other than the personal family history of it. You cleared up and an...
No, nothing on the bottom. The color is a deep amber....
I have added a third photo showing the bottle laying on its side focusing on the top of the cap with the logo on it. The 2nd pic was a "zoomed in" version of the third. Hope that helps.
Hi Blunderbuss2, that's just it...the bottle itself is plain. There are no markings, labels, raised letters or anything on it to give a clue as to what it is. It looks like a beer bottle and there i...
I discovered that these are two way candlestick holders. You can set a candlestick into the narrow end with the wide end sitting on a table or reverse it and set the candlestick in the wide end with ...
Thanks so much for responding . Ahhh, you imparted a bit of history to me that I was not aware of. Very interesting. I am going to then assume that this is, in fact, an antique piece and will treas...
Thanks for answering. Ahhh, so those crackly lines might have been caused by placing it in an oven? I have seen other dishes with this same crackly character and just assumed the crackle effect was ...
Thanks so much slackjack and aghcollect. I never would have thought it was a pickle, olive, cherry jar. Will search on the web for a "jar" and see if I come up with anything even remotely similar to...
Hi Aghcollect. Thanks for responding. No, there are no distinguishing marks anywhere on the bottle that I can see, even with a magnifying glass.
I've seen Chandeliers with the Bobeches on them and it looks like those are individual "icicles" that hang down creating the same look as these. These are, however, made of one piece.
I have turned the pic so you can see it with the larger part of the candle holders on top. I guess I could put a small votive candle in each. I have searched and searched and can't find anything tha...
Hello. Thanks so much for answering. I don't think they are bobeches. When I got them, there was a tiny amount of candle wax in the smaller (top) part of them. The way they are displayed in th...
Amazingly beautiful. Oh, I'm so itching to get my hands on it and restain it. What an awesome beauty it would be if stained a dark, rich color.
Gorgeous. Lucky you to have found it. Can't believe this was at a flea market. Wow.
Hi Classicanne.... I just love this chest. I'm using it to store my quilting fabrics and go into it every day. I was so glad to know the lining was a deliberate feature of the chest...not something...
Phil, I enlarged the photo and replaced it. You should be able to see it better now. I'll just measure the shade area of the lamp to determine how tall the shade should be and buy one I think would ...
Phil, what kind of lamp shade did it have (what shape and how big)?
Oh thank you so much Phil....so glad to know more about this lamp. What kind of crystals hung from it? I can see the crystals hanging from the bottom half of the curly areas but there are holes in t...
Caralynn, have you progressed with the refinishing of this chair? I have one similar I just posted recently. "Antique Chair". I removed all the webbing, burlap and springs from mine. I also remove...
I'm not surprised at all that the vanity has lasted. Back in the day, the construction was superb, materials used were strong and natural (not pressed board made by man) and were designed beautifully...
I cleaned up the hardware and was pleasantly surprised to see what they look like. I will post another picture in a different entry so you can all see it.
Hi Antiquerose. The link you provided is very interesting. The only thing missing is the price paid for it. Would like to know what someone paid for it.
Thanks so much for the info. I was thinking that it was from the 20s because I researched the drawer pulls and found them on a website that sells antique hardware and they claim the pulls were circa...
Here's a latch that looks similar to the one on your trunk. http://www.kennedyhardware.com/brass-trunk-latch.html
Hey, maybe you could help me identify these boxes: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/122934-tramp-art-boxes?in=user
It's the dump in Phelan, CA. Find the I40, head west thru NM, AZ, CA. Stay on the 40 til you get to the I15 south. Go about 40 miles, hang a right on Palmdale Blvd, make your way thru the desert t...
Well, I must say that last weekend I seriously tried to start work on this but it was impossible for me to even get started on it. The fact that the one hinge on the door (left side in pic) was bro...
This is just an opinion but it looks to be home made. The etching on the front could have been made by a very skilled person using a wood burning kit but, more than likely, it was carefully etched wi...
Is the lock itself stamped with the mfr? If so, you can look up the lock mfr's history. Would love to see pics of the inside of it too.
Haha, Vintage...I plan on doing just that...keeping it. Those front panels look like they were pieced together so the "waistline" is a deliberate act on the part of the maker.
Oh thank you Scott. The man I bought it from said it had been in his family for a "very long" time so, in his mind, 74 yrs would be a long time, if this piece was made in 1940. Thanks for properly d...
In addition to this tragic story, the magazine also features and introduces the brand new fashion model.....Twiggy....to the world. Pictures of her are amazing.
Honderich Furniture Company is based in Canada. OMG I LOVE LOVE LOVE the holes in cremation urn comment. Thank you SO MUCH for the laugh out loud Fhr... Well if it was a gimmick that someone paid e...
Looks like it has a price tag on it for $780.
Lane cedar chests have a style # and a serial # stamped on the bottom. The serial # tells the date of manufacture. At first the serial # was 6 digits long, then increased to 7 digits. The number is...
What a gorgeous piece of furniture. Drooling here.
Oh my goodness, what a magnificant piece.
Wowow, incredible work.
