    • I have a 1915 Victor "talking machine" and found a box in it that says "One Gold Record Flasher" (see attached).

      Inside are TWO small gold cap-like objects and a couple of screws.

       

      What in the WORLD is a Record Flasher?  Is it something that was used with the Victor?  ANY information will be sincerely appreciated!

    • Good Morning - again !!

      I have a metal box that was made by Park Sherman that I've been unable to locate ANYWHERE on the web.  I think it's very usual because it has THREE tiers for cigarettes - and the only ones I can locate on line are single-tier boxes.

       

      It has their logo on the inside lip of the box on the right and left.

       

      Can anyone advise when this might have been made and possible value?

    • Good Morning:

       

      I have an old photo (see attached) that I'd like to know more about.  It appears that it shows the front part of either a tractor or a portable engine with a very long belt to do something with hay.

       

      Can anyone possibly given me any information about what time period it might have been taken or ANY other information??

    • Attached are two pictures.  The Windsor chair on the left in the first picture has the support for the arm connecting to the stretcher rather than the seat of the chair.  I have not been able to find anything like this.   The chair was purchased many years ago from an old antique store in South Carolina.  Do you have any idea what part of the country this may have been from, who the possible manufacturer was, and any idea of value?

    • I am trying to see if anyone can authenticate my two pieces of pottery, possibly by William Grueby or his other two co-owners.  They are both signed by the same artist.  They have the clay color and blue/green color of his vases and some tiles.   It has the overlapping, cucumber finish.  One matte and the other semi glaze.   The texture matches his vases, I think these could possibly be some of his beginning works.

      Any assistance would be appreciated.

      William Grueby was a pottery artist start 1880's - 1920's from Massachusettes.

    • Good Morning:

      We recently purchased a metal cigarette box from a local shop and discovered that it has the Park Sherman logo stamped into the upper inside lid. 

      I've not been able to locate any pictures or information on this item, other than finding single-level cigarette boxes made by Park Sherman.

      Can anyone provide any information on this item, such as likely manufacture date, value, etc.

      ANY information would be greatly appreciated!

    • Hi all - Looking for some help- Wife recently lost her aunt and while cleaning out the house we found a box of old marbles in the basement next to the old coal burning furnance- They were covered with coal dust- Asking the family we learned that they were probably my wife's fathers or grandfathers when they were young- No one in the family ever remembers seeing them - We asked her brother as he would have been the most probable to have seen them if they were her fathers- He does not ever remember seeing them- Mixed in with the marbles were a number of clay marbles which I was able to look up and found they were produced from the late 1800's to around 1905.

       

      If they were her fathers or grandfgathers they would be quite old- Her Grandfather would be around 112 today- her father would be around 90

      I have attached some pictures of a few of the marbles ( I have around 100 or so) If anyone can tell me what make they are- The names of the marbles - Do they have any value etc- It would be greatly appreciated

      Thanks

    • We came across this jam jar that we purchased at an estate sale.  There is a backstamp on it that says "Hand Painted" and has the word "Nippon" under a maple leaf in green.  It is a beautiful piece with azaleas' painted on it and has gold trim work with raised dots and lines.  Would appreciate any info on this piece as far as when it may have been made, if there is a pattern name for it and what the value may be.  There was a handwritten note inside the jam jar that says that it is a jam jar and was given as a gift.  We know from research that the piece is anywhere from 1891 to possibly 1921.  The jar is 5 1/2" w/lid and the saucer is 6 1/4" across.  The hole in the bottom of the jar is about 1 1/4" across.

    • Hi Matthew,

      Nice plate, and from a very good manufacturer. Made for the 1000th anniversary of the city of Meissen.

      Not really one of a kind though, because they made more of them, but still worth quite a nice amount of money. Here in Europe they are for sale on Ebay and other sites for prices between 200 and 500 euros.

      I haven't been able to find one that had actually sold though, and I have to say that this sort of plate has gone rather out of fashion recently.

      Sorry I can't be more specific, but I hope this helps you a bit.

      Best regards,

      Deirdre

    • I love watching Garys antique show, it is very informative and interesting. I noticed he hasnt done a show in Cameras, such as Kodak or other companys. I was wondering if Gary would be interested in doing a show on vintage/antique cameras. 

       

      Thanks
