January 7 – Featured Antiques on Dusty Old Thing

from: Sharon Trittin Gagliano: “Can anyone identify my statue ? On the back of the base is the number 11026 and under that is a stamp engraved with what looks like squiggly lines with an S in the middle.. Another imprinted oval with D ?R. 8 can’t make it out.. This has been in our family for at least 4 generations.”

from: Dottie Furlong: “1946 radio . Only 1600 made. Still works”

from: Lee Ann Centers: “This appears to be a wooden drinking vessel of some sort, and it is quite old… It measures 8 1/4″ H x 2 1/1″ wide at base & at the mouth… the widest portion in the middle is approx. 2 3/4″. It appears to made of wood, with a leather band ‘handle’ – there is an intricate lacing pattern, appears to be of a type of sisal or jute ‘string’, in the form of a flower (sort of) on the ‘front’ – through holes carved in the piece. Very intriquing… I’d really most like to find out where it might have come from, don’t know if it is Native American or not, but I *love* it..”

from: Patty Ann Cox Murray: “This belonged to my mother. It was found in the smoke house at my grandparents. It had multiple coats of white enamel paint on it which were removed to reveal the beautiful natural wood. It has a flour bin and pull-0ut bread board along with patterned glass. Lots of love and great memories attached!”
