Hi drosenlu! The box camera you have is a Kodak Target Brownie Six 20. Kodak originally sold them for $2.75. They used 620 spool film and were produced from 1941-1946. The Art Deco front was designed by an American designer named Walter Teague. If yours is in working condition, you can still get film and use it! Great camera!

I wonder if this was a salesman's sample. The manufacturer would make a smaller version of same quality to show off the features. The Salesmen would cart these around to show people. Not my idea of portable, but it was a different age. I believe it ups the rarity factor because very few were made.

I agree. it may have been a salesman's sample. Some call them salesman's samples and other people call them children's stoves. Could be either or both.

Hello Veta, they are a beautiful pair of bourbon earrings made in the 19th Century, probably in the 1850's, I think they are made of 14kt gold, as used in the 19th Century, do you also have a pic of the back? Can you see any stamp on them?

@leonardo85, There is no stamp but I was told they are 14kt. I will try to take a photo of the back. Thank you for the information. I was told they are Aesthetic Movement, and that all the parts are original.

Hi there, looks like a nice transitional jointer Plane! I think the wood may actually be Beech rather than Boxwood because I have a similar Plane.

You may be right. I assumed boxwood, but the grain looks a bit more like beech.

This is an English style splat-back Windsor arm chair. Search that term and you will find lots of them. Hard to tell the age without seeing the underside, but looks like first half of 20th century to me, part of a set. These are usually interpretations of 18th century English chairs.

I'm a watch novice. How old is this watch?
3 years ago
Like
Reply
I have to open the case to get the usable serial number, but I'll have to take to a jeweler for new battery install.
This is the text from my Grand Pa's note:
This watch is 10k gold 1-22-07
This Hamilton watch was given to me by my Wife Frances in 1970. She purchased it at Shaners jewelry store in Astoria, OR.
To change the battery the jeweler must reove the crystal front side, the back does not come off.
Fred Meyer jeweler said it is not being made anymore is worth $400.00
a new battery was installed 01-09-07
