About Me
Hi I am Craig Phillips, I own B & C Emporium Original and Reproduction hardware, we stock original and reproduction hardware, chair caning, seating supplies, lamp & Trunk parts, cleaners & polishes, as well as antique furniture, and accessories.

I have been in my current building since Oct. 1981, this is my 3rd location, My father & I have done antique shows since 1969, we were doing bottles at that time, then we ventured in to antique cars & tractors, then furniture and smalls, I had a production refinishing shop, along with a retail store, so I left the guys run the shop and went to the retail side, they thought they knew it all, and destroyed a couple expensive pieces that were for my friends and I said I am done, in 1980 we had started to stock a little reproduction hardware, and that was growing as we were doing shows 4-5 per month around the midwest. Now I am just doing our local show Allegan antique show, it has about 400 vendors, and a really nice show, and our retail store.

Miniture kero lamp

This last weekend I was out to the flea market and seen this small lamp,

it will take a nutmeg burner but my question is it is made using a 3 pc mold, I know this was normal in the early 1800's but when did the 3 pc mold get replaced by the 2 pc mold in general?? just trying to date this pc.

Hi Mr Phillips,

When you have a few minutes, could you please take a look at the Antique Cylinder Desk posting in Furniture, Antique and Vintage Group? From a similar posting, I have a feeling this is likely a piece you may recognize. I would appreciate any information you are able to give.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to take a look and respond. Your thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Sincerely and respectfully,

Jean-Marie Phillips

Thanks. I posted a comment with photos about a table that has a painted mural (flowers spilling from a vase) which has a peculiar texture to it not seen on other parts of the table. I wondered if this was because a canvas was applied to the table top.

Craig, One of the members in our group Advertising Collectibles Antique and Vintage, has this cast iron advertising object. Do you recognize what they might be advertising?

Yes,Daily struggle.  I think I see doctors more than I see my own family. "Frozen" looks like it would be a good one to take the grand baby to see.
