"Knock me over with a feather! Can't argue anymore. Sure are a lot of dumb people, me included, who think it was for wool. WTG Molly."

"Actually the Victor is also for a rug stretcher - it says so in the patent. I looked up the patent number (402953). A lot of sellers on ebay and the internet in general do not do all the searching they should before selling."

" I think it is time to move on with this.  Perhaps, Tom is correct.  This patent was by a different inventor, anyway.  Maybe, since the VICTOR was manufactured later, it was somehow improved from the original design.  Maybe…"

"The patent date on the first example clearly shows the date of 1883, Tom.  Why can't it be what it is?  Like Bonnie said, maybe they used it for wool after it was invented.  Maybe like Fred said because it was too rough on the…"

"National (Chicago) built the hand cranked vacuum cleaner that you pictured in 1911. Molly's 2 examples have the wrong date also. If your example doesn't have the same patent date, May 7, 1889, you are wasting your time and mine too."

"I see your picture Fred but where does it say it's for stretching carpets? Did you forget to post that part? Bonnie likes your Reply but BB how can a device that plainly shows a Patent date of May 7, 1889 be used in 1883? Six years before it…"

Fred Thompson replied to BikerBonnie's discussion What is it, some one said for wool? in the group Whadja Find Today
"I would say it would do the job, looks like it would be a bit rough on a carpet and maybe the floor. Since replaced by grabbers with MUCH smaller pins and anchors that press on the baseboards. Most carpet layers use "knee kickers" nowadays."

Here is my first Orrefors glass item; the Lagerbielke bowl.

fyi my Orrefors collection began when the Acura dealer I was working at had a choice of a free gift from Acura for us winning Precision Team Status. This Orrefors bowl by Erika Lagerbielke was one of the many gifts which our employees could chose from.  I likely was the only employee to choose this one and I soon after began to collect Orrefors items from many local thrift stores and also found some on eBay.  This is an Orrefors sculpture celebrating the island of Gotland and shows some prehistoric scenes.  I believe that I'd posted photos here on this antiques website; I don't now remember where I bought this and it's in new condition.  It's about 5 1/2" high and properly signed/engraved on the base.  This was based on a real prehistoric rock found in Gotland and here it is.

You can e-mail Orrefors with photos of your perfume bottle and/or search the Internet which has a dating code for the serial number shown on your vase.  I e-mailed them years ago and in 2 days they let me know who had made my unmarked candleholder = Sven Palmquist in 1954.  I'd found this in an antiques shop in Manassas VA years ago and it instantly spoke to me letting me know that it was made by Orrefors and the factory quickly confirmed this for me.  They're really fantastic about responding to e-mails.holder and when it was made.

Hi Bonnie, I'm so sorry I haven't acknowledge your request. I've been having tons of health issues and then for some reason Firefox didn't want to load the site correctly. I just downloaded and installed Chrome today and it works fine. Love your bike, wish I hadn't gotten hit on mine back in 2001. Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I'm still here. We got our first Aladdin lamp made in 1920 last month on a trip to Galveston and going back this month to look for more.

This is the only antique group I belong to. I guess some folks are products of their environment well mine was for the most part antiques. My mother loved "as my siblings and I would joke," loved old stuff, she'd spend more money buying something old than she would buying something new.
