"Antique sets don't have brushes at all. Round brushes are even more new-fangled. That's part of the reason I said more recent than the 50's."

silver spool insignia

I have a small .800 silver spoon (made in Germany, turn of the century). But I'm having trouble finding what the design on it is for. It looks like an old European crest of some sort, but I can't figure out if its for a country or some other use. Any ideas?…See More

"I think even more recent than the 50's. More decorative than functional; wouldn't withstand heavy use in a real fireplace for long."
Jeff Guy replied to Mark Wyndham-Jones's discussion The Surf Ballroom - Winter Dance Party February 2nd 1959 in the group Whadja Find Today
"Pretty clearly a reproduction, probably for some impersonators recreating the concert decades later. The pics are of the impersonators, not the real guys."

Jeff Guy replied to katherina martindale's discussion What is this? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Can't believe people are still talking about this. I think it is a wall-mount candle holder, similar to the lights someone posted earlier, but made for candles. Missing the glass cylinder. Unfortunately you have only one; most people would be…"

Jeff Guy replied to Allan Bennett's discussion Bone carved idol in the group Whadja Find Today
"It doesn't really look like bone or other natural material; and looks more like resin with artificial age and coloring. You will need to test to be sure since pics over internet not that reliable. A view of the bottom would help, though."

Jeff Guy replied to John Taglione's discussion Old Odd Shaped Old Wooden Box in the group Whadja Find Today
"I agree. Not a cupboard and not to be used inside a home. Made by a home-owner or as a shipping container by someone without any special carpentry skills. 20th century, not older. Made in the country you found it in (you're in the US? then…"

Jeff Guy replied to debra halcro's discussion Were sugar shakers and creamer sets a thing once? in the group Whadja Find Today

Jeff Guy replied to John Taglione's discussion Old Odd Shaped Old Wooden Box in the group Whadja Find Today
"OK, now that is something I've never heard of anyone collecting. Vintage coffins? How old? How is it they were never used? Where have you found them? Please start a new thread about them!!"

Jeff Guy replied to John Taglione's discussion Help with a primitive old sled in the group Whadja Find Today
"John, you seem to have a business. If so, how have you been pricing things before now? You need to look for similar items either online, or in your local area. The latter is a better idea of value, unless you are going to list and ship online."
