Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera yesterday

Marianne, I have no clue what your answer is; I'm old fashioned and still use a PC.

However if you ask Google your question you can find instant answers.  When I asked your question the answer advised downloading to your PC so that you can save them in a permanent file.  Here is what I found:  http://acer--uk.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4564/~/transfe...

I do know that some people can, and others can't, download pics to IAO, or are limited to 1 at a time. With a PC, using the icon to the right of the LINK icon, you can download 8 (I think).

Vintage books:

A child's book reminiscent of Dick & Jane entitled "Summer is Here" by Bertha Morris Parker, published in 1956 by Row, Peterson & Co., 36 numbered pages, filled with color illustrations.

Three Feathers, which I assume is or was some type of alcoholic potable, published a booklet "Life of the Party" filled with popular songs, parlor games and recipes for cocktails, 69 numbered pages, no date of publication, but looks very retro.

"Things are Fine in Mount Idy" by Charley Weaver (Cliff Arquette), published by Holt, Rinehart & Winston in 1960, 53 numbered pages.

You are right. One is for Dave, and the other is for Paul, which  is why I used the  word "likewise" which means the  message is the same but for somebody else.

Comment by AR8Jason on Wednesday

Tom ... look at the two post just under my last one. Both are yours and they are essentially the same.


Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on Wednesday

Paul Smith:  What are the dimensions?  I know you are new here, but that aside you need to read the instructions shown above Whadjafind. #1 thru #6.

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on Wednesday

AR8, I didn't post this once or twice.  Paul Smith posted it in  Whadjafind as a discussion AND also on the Comment Wall.

I see now where Paul Smith says it is definitely wood!  Which is what I said.  It is painted gold/brass.

Comment by paul smith on August 26, 2014 at 1:49pm

the piece is definitely wood 

Comment by AR8Jason on August 26, 2014 at 7:03am

Tom ... are you confused or double posting for a reason?

As far as carving marks, when you carve an item for a mold to cast something, brass, plastic etc. and such marks are left on the original, the carving marks are carried to the mold and then to the cast. Photographs of those marks mean nothing. There is evidence of three colors, no bare wood. Gilt or brass, red, and white that seems translucent in the photograph. The "which came first" gilt or red is in question as far as I am concerned. More logical is the brass first and the red after. -- Would it not be helpful to have material and size specified in a post?

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on August 26, 2014 at 1:37am

Paul Smith and AR8Jason, It is confusing when you post this in 2 different places; you split your answers.  You posted this in Whadjafind as a Discussion Post and also on the Comment Wall.


In picture #3 zoom (left click) will show wood grain and carving cuts confirming it is wood.
