"The hieroglyph for M for instance, seems to be facing the wrong direction if it were in fact meant to be a stamp, as the design on the stamp should be in mirror, not in normal readable direction. There were a number of carved scarab beetles as part…"

"Hieroglyphs are used in three ways, to phonetically represents various sounds, as a determinative (a symbol to help to clarify the meaning) or as an ideogram, a picture representing a concept.  For example, Chinese writing started off as…"

"It appears to be an Egyptian scarab beetle stamp to me. If it is antique, it is in very good condition. They have holes so you can thread it and wear it."

Michael replied to Lloyd Levine's discussion Are these all used for the same reason in the group Whadja Find Today
"These look like ice hooks to me. There are also pointed ice pliers, but the hooks are also used."

Michael replied to John Taglione's discussion A very unusual piece ! Hoping for some help identifying and dating in the group Whadja Find Today
"Why would you assume they know this and would be withholding such information on purpose? Perhaps they simply hadn't taken a good look at it yet and not noticed, posting it up after a brief perusal. That aside, I do see how it could be a…"

"Can you show us a photo of the underside? Also a close up of the carved in letters/symbols on the side? (not the 12X21XY) The fainter curved text, looks like a large DA flanked by other text, with possibly something written across beneath it."

Michael replied to Lloyd Levine's discussion Another jeweler/jewelry related item. Does it have a name ? in the group Whadja Find Today
"It looks like a divided plastic bowl with a flat lid. Most likely, that's all it is, no specific function for jewellery making, other than to hold and divide up a few smaller pieces."

Michael replied to Lloyd Levine's discussion Does this item have a "name " in the group Whadja Find Today
"It's called a dappin block, and is used to shape and form the watch casings. These come in various shapes and styles as well, not always a cube block like yours."

Michael replied to John Peterson's discussion No idea what this is . . . in the group Whadja Find Today
"Thanks. It's just that at 3 foot tall, it doesn't sound all that heavy, even if solid hardwood, one person should be able to lift and carry that around easily enough. Also, see if you can find out the diameter of the item."

Michael replied to John Peterson's discussion No idea what this is . . . in the group Whadja Find Today
"You've not stated how heavy this item actually is?"

Good Morning...here...Michael,

I just noticed the friend's request.  I have started doing the URL thing and it seems to work somewhat.  Before, copy and paste was very easy and I was able to get a variety of sizes so it did not take up so much room.  I do not understand what happened to good old "copy and paste"?  Thank you for inquiring...I guess people will have to click on the links occasionally if they really want the information they've requested.

Have a great day
