Don Wagner commented on Connie Swaim's group What is it & What is it worth?
"Krista - If you still have this piece and are looking for information on it, I would send photos to the Museum of Man in Vancouver, BC. They are an incredible knowledge base of Archeological and Anthropological research on indigenous American…"

"Hello Thrisa - Just what I need for that blank spot above the TV in my living room! Actually, a very interesting painting, too bad it is not signed. The trick is to find out if it is an original piece or a student copy of a popular painting, It is…"

"Hello Don - It looks to be a setup for demonstrating static electricity in a school science class.  The rotating glass disc would rub against the wool, or whatever was held in the teeth on the right, and create sparks - maybe in the clear glass…"

"It's a very nice specimen cabinet.  My brother is a Doctor of Anthropology and his university (founded in 1837) has similar cabinets full of artifacts. It seems like I saw a photo of similar ones at the Chicago Field Museum as well. This…"

"An incense burner will have vent holes in the lid.  Could be a holder for tea or some such thing."

Don Wagner replied to Paulette Hendricks's discussion Japanese Lacquer Cups - WWII Vintage in the group What is it & What is it worth?
"Hello Paulette - I hate to be a grouch, but these are not Japanese in either design or quality of workmanship. They MIGHT be some mediocre pieces made in post-war Japan for cheap export to gift shops. Even the well made Japanese cups that are…"

"What a remarkable piece! The writing is some kind of Pidgin German. Maybe it's an old dialect, but words are misspelled, umlauts are missing, etc. The lid says basically that Prince Heinrich showed up at Freyberg in such force that peace was…"

Carpet or Upholstery Stretcher?

This vintage tool is 27 1/2" long and shows years of use.  I figured it was an old carpet stretcher, but someone I met feels it is probably for stretching the webbing when re-upholstering furniture. The teeth are 4" wide, and that does seem like the width of the old webbing they used. I was wondering if anyone knew for certain.See More

"I finally remembered to take a few daylight shots. These drawer pulls are copper, but hand forged iron would probably be appropriate as well."

"I have never seen any pictures showing what goes in the drawers or the additional sunken area next to the lined one, but someone must know. I tried to take photos of some drawer pulls in my collection, but they came out dark so I will try it again…"

"Here is a photo of one in my collection. As you can see, a glass insert makes it more useful as a small coffee table or chest. I intend to fill the metal tray with interesting rocks."

"This is a Japanese Hibachi. If the hardware was still there, you would have immediately recognized it as an Oriental piece of furniture. The wood is oriental persimmon wood. The copper lined portion was filled with sand, and that is where hot coals…"
