Tell us about your interest in antiques, collecting and any antique related websites, blogs, businesses.
I simply enjoy the old world styling of items, made to bee aesthetically pleasing, flamboyant in design or outrageous in appearance, yet I also enjoy the convenience of modern technology and advances made in so many areas, I long to have a harmonious blend of both in most items I wish to have.

Michael replied to John Mallon's discussion EMBLEM or CREST What is it? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Actually, I would say it is a griffin, given the wings and eagle head.  Other than that, I would agree with Tom in that it could just be an artist's interpretation.  I too haven't seen that specific crest/emblem before, I had a…"

"After a bit of photoshop enhancing (see image below), it appears to me to be bas-relief as you mentioned.  I agree that it is most likely a decorative item, rather than a functional one. For a bit of interesting information regarding the man…"

Michael replied to Sean Jones's discussion Help in identifying? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Maybe since you've got an address, do some research on the history of the building.  What businesses have resided there over time and you may find one which resonates with your stand."

Michael replied to Jeannine Nield's discussion DRGM patented object, white metal tubular container. in the group Whadja Find Today
"Well, essentially, you are right in one respect, it could be used for just about anything you can think of which can fit into it.  Obviously, there would have been a rather specific use in mind from the original designer of the item.  The…"

"hehe yeah I realised that, but I also figured it is also good for others to have this information. As for your item, closest looking thing I could find is this item, a portable writing kit, which also has a D.R.G.M. mark…"

Michael replied to Jeannine Nield's discussion DRGM patented object, white metal tubular container. in the group Whadja Find Today
"Some information I found regarding the D.R.G.M.   My apologies, it is rather lengthy, but good to know about if you have an item with this mark on it. The acronym D.R.G.M. with or without punctuation stands for Deutsches…"

Michael replied to Joe Obermaier's discussion Baffled by this brass find - what is it? in the group Whadja Find Today
"It looks like a stamp to me, try placing the thinnest layers of ink over the textured surface and see if it is textured enough to create a stamped pattern or if just creates a cloud shaped blob.  A highlighter pen often works well for testing…"

Michael replied to Charlotte's discussion Would love to know what this little glass dish is in the group Whadja Find Today
"Could you take a photo of the item, from the side, level with it so we can see a side on view of the long side?"

Michael replied to Victoria Rutherford's discussion can anyone identify if this pair of glasses is gold or gold filled..and what era in the group Whadja Find Today
"Since the mark is hard to read, could it simply be worn down, or even off completely over time. Here are a pair from Stevens & Co sold online on optometristattic.com"

Michael replied to Charlotte's discussion Would love to know what this little glass dish is in the group Whadja Find Today
"I had the same thought as Tom. Possibly a rectangular glass pipe rest. My example below, obviously, I didn't see a closer design match."

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
