Can anyone tell me more about this piece? I would definitely like to know the year it was made. Any info on it would be greatly appreciated.

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on January 22, 2016 at 2:57am

Maybe for a watch fob or key chain.

Victory Liberty Loan Medallion. At first I thought someone had punched a hole in it to make a pendant, but others I have seen online also have the hole in them, so likely meant to wear as jewelry.

Lillian, I'm naturally curious to know what BAD thing you did to get a "lump of coal" for Christmas...that is what you have.

According to Christmas Central website the tradition is:

"A lump of coal in a stocking is the universal shorthand for a child being punished. It is well known that Santa brings presents to children who have been good throughout the year, and to the bad ones, he only spares a black rock. But where did this come from?

Strangely enough, it came from a time in which coal was still welcome as a gift. Poor people in the 19th century had it rough. Not much to go around, and due to the technology, when it got cold the only way to keep warm was with burning coal, even putting it in pans under beds to keep warm. So the poor kids would not be able to afford anything but coal, it would be said. It is a bit unfortunate that being “poor” got mixed slightly with being “bad”, but this continued. Think of it as Santa coming into a house. For a good child, he would bring in all the toys and gifts that they deserve. For the bad one, he’d save time by snagging a bit of coal out of the fireplace store and dropping it in the stocking as a warning. So be sure to be good this year, and keep your home soot free!"

I believe your coal is actually coal resin, a mixture of coal dust and glue, poured into a mold and signed by Mr. England.  Value is probably under $25. USD, but the memories it triggers are invaluable.

A Christmas gift I found at the bottom of my stocking years ago. I did do some research on James D. England and apparently he sculpted figurines, paperweights and other items from Pennsylvania coal.

I meant to add that there is a company that makes these and they are still in business.  I didn't get a link.

Lundy here's an eagle like yours 'cept it's in better condition. Pinterest.

Bellamy Style Carved Eagle, Late 19th Century, large carved pine and gold gilt Eagle having a painted banner reading Live and Let Live. Massachusetts probably Boston.:

hi tom , no ,no coffee yet ,  I found a couple green glass ones,  I cant find one either

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on January 4, 2016 at 3:38am

Lundy, posting in the Comment Wall doesn't work very well because other posts get put into your conversation and within a few weeks your request is pushed off into cyber space. Out of sight, out of mind.

The best way to post something like your glass or vase (I can't tell what it is, let alone try to identify it) is to make a DISCUSSION. Just above the Comment Wall you will see "+ Add a Discussion".

Put your discussion there, pics included. Then all replies stay together.
