Jeremy Woodoff replied to Claire's discussion Help me identify this unusual lamp in the group Whadja Find Today
"Claire, I'm not sure why you say the fuel container is missing. It seems to be the silver round thing under the light bulb. It even appears to have the screw-in cap for filling with kerosene. The only things I see missing are the chimney and…"

"Very, very nice! I believe this is called a piano lamp. Check Google images under "antique piano lamp" and you will see them. The height may be adjustable."

"Please re-post the other pictures. It looks like a very nice example, probably made close to the last patent date, late 1880s or 1890s. What looks like brass might be gilding; if so, be very careful with cleaning it--no abrasives!"

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Travis's discussion Torchiere Lamp in the group Whadja Find Today
"Yes, you can use an adaptor, as long as the existing mogul switch is working properly. Or you can still buy mogul bulbs, I think."

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Woody Ramsey's discussion Clock with Wooden Movement in the group Whadja Find Today
"Woody, your clock was made about 1825-30 . It is an example of the beginnings of the Connecticut clock industry, essentially started by Eli Terry with his mass-production of wood clock movements. The style is generally referred to as a "column…"

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Lewis Royer's discussion Very detailed metal statue in the group Whadja Find Today
"It probably doesn't depict anyone in particular. Probably made of spelter and originally with a plated or bronzed, painted finish. This type of figure was very popular in the Victorian era--maybe 1870s through 1910s. They were made and sold by…"

"Here is a picture of a reproduction gas-electric fixture. Note the similar glass pieces used to simulate a gas candle."

Jeremy Woodoff replied to luis's discussion help with table clock in the group Whadja Find Today
"Another problem I just noticed is that the dial is divided into minutes, which is not correct for a one-hand clock. The dial for a one-hand clock would have divisions (usually quarter-hour) on the inside of the Roman hour numerals."

Jeremy Woodoff replied to luis's discussion help with table clock in the group Whadja Find Today
"I really shouldn't even guess, but if I had to based on the information I have and what I can see, I would say it might be a real 18th century clock or watch movement housed in a later case, which may be 19th century or even 20th century, made…"

"The "A Paris" is easy--made in Paris. The maker's name seems to be "Corleteic." I don't see anything like that in my list of makers, though that doesn't necessarily mean anything."

Jeremy Woodoff replied to luis's discussion help with table clock in the group Whadja Find Today
"Luis, Renaissance table clocks are extremely rare. There are probably many more reproductions and fakes than real ones. Your clock is very interesting and does have some features that appear very early, but I cannot tell if it is authentic. On thing…"

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Lillian Dunbar's discussion Unusual Clock in the group Clocks Antique - Collectible
"Your clock is commonly called a "tape measure" clock, but it was sold by the Lux Clock Co. (Waterbury, CT) as "the Mystery Rotary Clock." It was patented in 1935. I'm not sure when they stopped being produced, but there are…"

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Dan Harper's discussion gas light shades? in the group Whadja Find Today
"I'm not sure, but they may be for gas candles. They would fit over a simple pipe with an open flame burner at the end, which would simulate a burning candle. I think these were typically used with combination gas/electric fixtures and were…"

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Mary Brannian's discussion "alkamia" or "alkania" clock.... need assistance identifying maker and age in the group Whadja Find Today
"Mary, The "FHS" logo on the movement is for Franz Hermle & Sons, a well-known German maker. I'm not sure whether "Alkania" is a company that purchased Hermle movements and cased them or whether "Alkania" is a…"

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Jay L Ald's discussion Oil painting with Marks of Dec 21 1886 with ink and pressed into wood in the group Whadja Find Today
"Not sure I agree about the frame. It's hard to tell from the photos. The detail shows what looks like it might be a square, cut nail. The one impression next to it does have the form of a staple, but there is no staple present, and it's…"
