"I put up ceiling tiles and found a brand new hand saw. Elsewhere I found a brand new 1" chisel. Behind dust boards I found stamps, marbles and small coins. Those windows were plate glass, about 1/4" thick and the dimes worked great. At one…"

"Tom, That's crazy!   As a carpenter, I can't imagine stacking dimes for shims.  And didn't 10c actually buy something back when they were in circulation?    Had to be a really expensive window shim! You would…"

"I used to buy, remodel and flip houses. I've found stuff in most of them. The last one, I found a NA pestle which I donated to the Coeur d'Alene Indian tribe. I also found a WW I Trench art inscribed shell casing. A 7 unit apartment had…"

"I do see a few places where the paint is missing and I figured it wasn't DW safe.  Another reason I didn't expect this to be of great value.   The value for me is the fun of finding this stuff in the house!   I…"

"Yep, Nice to see the old Hazel Atlas cup and saucer again! I haven't seen one in years. Do be careful cleaning them to, they are "cold painted" and paint will come off in a diswasher. :("

vicki hufstetler replied to John's discussion Milk Glass Punch bowl in the group Whadja Find Today
""Harvest Milk Glass Grapes and Leaves" by Colony (aka Indiana Glass co, 1960's). Your missing the base. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/521995413038012327/ It might be the (above link) goldtone base your missing, but there was…"

tomsantiquesetcetera replied to John's discussion Milk Glass Punch bowl in the group Whadja Find Today
"The small base on your punch bowl indicates that it fit into a pedestal type stand.  Using it "as is" would be unstable and might tip over. In searching  I found a similar (not the same) set, bowl, stand, matching ladle, 10 cups…"

"Tap the bowl with your finger. If you get a bell tone it's not cracked, but if it goes "thud" it is. Some hairline cracks don't go through."

John replied to John's discussion Kahla China in the group Whadja Find Today
"Thanks for your replies Tom!   I doubt any of this is worth a whole lot but I think the crack you see on the bottom of the bowl is only in the glazing.  It doesn't show up on the inside of the bowl. I scanned through those images…"

tomsantiquesetcetera replied to John's discussion Kahla China in the group Whadja Find Today
"The bowl showing the mark is also showing a large crack on the bottom. Trying to sell it is a waste of time.(My opinion) I didn't look thru this very far; not many images.  Might be a good learning lesson on using their free ID…"

"The terminology you're seeking is "Mark" or "Back stamp".  A lot of china can be found at www.replacements.com; they also offer a free ID service and sometimes will buy that which you're selling."

"John (& Others).  Hold milk glass up to the sunlight. If you see red color in it, that is gold. It is more valuable than plain white m-g.  If it doesn't have red in it, I don't buy it; it's mass produced and has little…"

tomsantiquesetcetera replied to John's discussion Syracuse China in the group Whadja Find Today
"The Mark defined is 93 = 1964 and I (i) is September.  Syracuse china has been commercially produced and used in restaurants, etc. for years."
