August 1 – Featured Antiques on Dusty Old Thing

from: Terry L. Ray: “Found this beautiful English compact at a thrift store the other day; paid .99 for it. When I looked it up online & converted the pounds to dollars, was pleasantly surprised to find it’s worth somewhere around $70-85! Adding more pictures to the comments section.”

from: Bridget Borchert: “My new old jug. I think it’s pretty cool. A gift from my husband. The body is covered with thin bent wood that has a few splits. The stopper, I believe, is carved wood. The band around the bottom is in pretty bad shape and has newer screws holding what’s left of it in place. There is sticky dark colored residue inside and on the stopper. About 20″ tall with the stopper in place. I know nothing about it except I love it! 🙂 Any ideas as to the age or what it was used for?”

from: Lisa Nigro: “Flea market find yesterday…Fenton Coin Dot pattern perfume bottles with Kings Crown Stoppers….bottles are in perfect condition, stoppers have some chipping to the bottoms….now I just need to find the matching powder jar and I’ll have the complete vanity set!”

from: Elizabeth Mayes: “Here’s my Plantation desk. I’ve had it 40 yrs, it came from Jefferson, TX, it may be cherry, or maple.”
