Every once in a while we like to feature antiques, or things vintage, that have been posted by our readers who are seeking more information about them. Here are some for this morning. If you can help date an object or have any insight into how it was used or it’s maker or its role in our material culture, just leave a comment. We are a virtual community and share knowledge and experience…and guesses. Besides, it’s fun.
