Betty Proper replied to John Taglione's discussion Old Odd Shaped Old Wooden Box in the group Whadja Find Today
"Might it have been constructed in that fashion in order to increase its stability?  Perhaps the person who made it had made a simple rectangular one before that kept falling over with the brooms, etc in it. - just a "wild" guess."

"I was also confused by this post as the original post (as I received it) did not have any pics or links to pics.  Does anyone know why some would have received the pic and others did not?  Was it just a "one-time" glitch or is it…"

Betty Proper replied to Lloyd Levine's discussion Hand smelter ? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Yep, Jeff, her Mexican model surely looks like the item, but from having squeezed lemons for over 60 years, I find her suggestion of using either this or a mixer beater "interesting" at best.  The mixer beater had juice going all over…"

"I would really like to see someone demonstrate this object's use as a juice reamer.  It makes sense for garlic but where would one put a half lemon?"

Betty Proper replied to Mark D Swartz's discussion Sterling Marked Old Pocket Knife = Valuable or Not? It Depends on Whom You Ask in the group Whadja Find Today
"Thank you. Ah, yes, I remember seeing that - and did not know what it was.  My "reaction" at the time when we learned what it was was - hmm, a good deal "older" than the one that I had to use back in the 1940s - it brought…"

Betty Proper replied to John Taglione's discussion Help with a primitive old sled in the group Whadja Find Today
"My field for decades has been out-of-print books on the fine and decorative arts.  With the economic changes in that area, we are now focusing on ephemera.  I have always had an interest in "older" objects and thus find these…"

Betty Proper replied to Mark D Swartz's discussion Sterling Marked Old Pocket Knife = Valuable or Not? It Depends on Whom You Ask in the group Whadja Find Today
"Mark, while I would not want to get "ripped off" if I were to sell something, monetary value ranks rather low on my list of why I collect/own something.  My dearest objects are those that have come down from relatives - and most have…"

"You say "the handles still retain their "like new" shiny metallic luster".   Unless you are keeping it in a special wrapper (or unless you mean after you polished it), if it was sterling, it would be tarnished."

Betty Proper replied to Ruth Hoezee's discussion Little cat marked JAPAN in the group Whadja Find Today
""Occupied Japan" was used during the allied occupation (end of WWII through April 25, 1952).  When the allies left, it became just simply "Japan".  I do not recall how objects were marked before the war.  Perhaps…"

"From your pics, this looks to be homemade.  Across the years thread has changed.  I am not a thread expert, but someone who is might be able to look at the type of thread used to guestimate age."
