"I am inclined to believe it is a “collet keeper”.    I have a couple smaller versions to hold the wire collets for my jewelry lathe.   If you own and use a lathe or other machine tool you will need a wide variety of…"

"This thing continues to puzzle us.  We removed all the cellophane or clear wrap yesterday to get a better look.   A close examination of the back of it and one can see the outline of the rectangular frame of the front!   It is all…"

"I will add, for the interested observer, this thing is a bit of an enigma!    Exactly what is it?   It is three dimensional, and the writing below the artwork is engraved.   It is the post engraved (or possible etched?) coloring…"

Very Old Miniature Colored Engraving - Circa 1764 - FRANCE

A few months before my sister-in-law died she gave this small engraved silver plate to my wife, a token of appreciation for all the help she has been over the past few years.  I have only recently retrieved it from the display case to look at it closely.   It is pretty neat!   The image is lovely of course, but my fascination was the detailed information engraved on the plate itself!After a fashion we managed to read it all and translate it ... then in some paperwork we located a small scrap…See More

"It could very well be that Paula.   In fact my wife had suggested that.   This thing is an enigma.   Still not sure about the materials (plural intended) and perhaps modifications by lesser skilled persons well after the thing was…"

"I need to remind myself here, this jug is so small it seems unlikely anyone milked into it!   Maybe goats!   But it really doubt it.  So why the flats in it?   Just so it won’t roll away?    Looks nicer?  …"

"The closer I look the more I see.   I looked into the jug and saw that the jug itself is two pieces.   There is a seam around it about half way down!    The inside right now doesn’t look like anything one would want to put…"

"Tom, I am glad you asked me about the metal.  Darn if I don’t think it is copper!   And now that I look it over better, what appears to be a dinged side is not that!  Both side are flattened!   That may actually have served…"
