Dusty Old Thing: Every once in a while we like to feature some of the vintage photos shared by our readers. This one is from Donna and is of her grandmother in 1908. See the others we selected at -> http://www.dustyoldthing.com/Comments:
gail ruby - Wow, that doll on the left looks like Baby Jane, no?
sondra benitez - That is seriously sweet
shirley gaye metcalf - This is a beautiful picture. The little girl is pretty anyway but the way she is dressed and her toys are just perfect.
carolann ellmore - My house was built in 1900, and it is interesting to see how the children dressed back in 1908. It is hard to believe that people lived in this house that dressed like that.
sara gal - just love these old photos~~
sharon larner - Beautiful little girl!
nancy reaume worlen - This picture isn't nearly that old - its from 1949 and it's my grandfather and I watching TV.
connie goodman trea - Precious memories. Her two prized possessions.
susan moody wade - Very cute, this family had money, most little girls didn't have cute chairs like this
linda eadie - This child is mesmerizing. So precious. I bet she was a beautiful adult.
judy long - I love this picture!
laura charles - loving this photo
catie mcintyre walker - Too bad you don't have the teddy bear. It's safe to say it's a beautiful old mohair Steiff.
rukhsana iqbal - OH! That age of dolls and doll houses, we spent hours dressing and grooming our dolls, talked to them, and shared secrets with them! Now children are in another world!
kim apel morrow - Love old pics! A moment captured in time. The outfits and background as well as the poses have always facinated me. I am lucky to have some of my great grandma's pictures and I see family traits.
nancy bench - What a beautiful little girl.
victoria e. poague - and a steiff bear taboot!
doris fillinger cumbee - I love the teddy bear!
lin haydell - Beautiful little girl,the bear is looking adoringly at her .what a treasure!

Dusty Old Thing: This fantastic antique desk, circa 1790, has secret compartments! It's shown here by Karen Fulks of Signature Antiques in Ohio. See more antiques from yesterday's Antique Market in Louisiville at -> http://dustyoldthing.com/Comments:
lisa firstiun-fabe - I love that desk, I just bought a secretary desk just recently for $ 75. It just needed to be cleaned up and it has glass cabinet on top.
jennifer powell willis - I have an old rolltop that has a secret compartment.... it's on the side though, not in the rolltop!
rhonda petersen trout - I love anything has history and secrets to it. <3
karen goodwin mandina - Reminds me of the movie "The Love Letter" with Campbell Scott and Jennifer Jason Leigh, that is of an old desk with a secret compartment and they pass letters through time.
becky borden howard - I have this same desk...love it! Bought it at a yard sale long ago for 10.00!
tammie lien - Thi would be lovely to have as my card making desk:)
joanne casstevens - Wow~who cleaned it??? :/
leah ann johnson - I wonder who got the dresser that my Aunt had.. it had two small drawers on the side of the mirror, and ornate carving on the front of the drawers.. It may be in the museum in Minden NE.. they had guys that went around to the older peoples homes and talked them out of their precious antiquies in the 60's and I know they have several items that should of been passed down in our family..but since they were short of cash at the time literally almost gave them away ... sad but it happened...
jo-ann conner - Mine has claw feet.
susan every williams - I have one with secret compartments also altho I think it's from the late 1800's.
janice sharp - I love all the compartments and little storage spaces!
pat marks-boren - I wish I had mine back
tracey mcatee - Sears put out that color dressers & desks, same hardware, early 1960's. They called it Early American.
daisy yelton - I have seen one just like this the harrisons owned it and it got destroyed in a fire in 1954.
ml orwig - Beautiful piece of furniture
casey shain - If anyone owns a desk/secretary from this period, look it over with a fine-tooth comb as they say. Almost every one of them has a secret space somewhere. My late 18th century secretary has a hidden space at the very top.
michael mcpherson - I have one just like it.
linda werries - wow to the person "Lisa" that bought a sec desk for $75 was a good deal!! Do you have to work on it?? Lucky :)
linda werries - how beautiful. lucky person that buys it. don't have room and to far away or I would try to find a place, something would have to go!!!! :)

Dusty Old Thing: Have enjoyed the day, despite the rain, at the Antiques Market at historic Locust Grove in Louisville. Great people. Hope you've had a good Sunday, too!Comments:
bobbi forest - Can you believe there are people who do not appreciate antiques. I had a group of women over for lunch and they were "odd" about my house. It is all antiques but my washer dryer and frig (I do have an ice box, keep extra china set in it). Most people that come in my house are amazed at all the beautiful pieces I have.
miseri cordia - ooh, pretty lamps.
wendy smith - love to have that cupboard behind bed headboard

jill valero - I used to live in Louisville...miss it every day! What a great place to live
rhonda thibault - Looks like nice stuff, it must be costly.
kayce thompson - wish we had more of these around where i live.

jean f bates - i love the little lamp in the picture. how much???
sally hurtt - WISH I'D BEEN THERE!!
bill smits - Different strokes for different folks. I have found some great bargains, because of people who don't particularly care for antiques.

lois pavlosky - We have a 4 bedroom colonial style home....as w Bobbi, our entire house is filled w antiques. We have old school desks as end tables, antique sewing machines as side tables, dry sinks, ice boxes...oh my gosh, we are loaded. Some days I just look at my "stuff" & feel so proud of what we have saved from extinction.
ruth williams - I enjoy looking at all those yesterday from time ago I to love to collect certain things
ava pollis robinson - Loving those lamps!

Dusty Old Thing: Sometimes you can find interesting things in a locked trunk bought at an auction. Check out tonight's Featured Antiques...Comments:
ann f marcus - Can anyone identify this....? It's driving me crazy...someone said something about a chocolate thing? Halp...
marcia greene - The locked trunk find is fascinating
noushin kar - I know exactly what this is, it has nothing to do with death and dying, it is simply a vanity mirror. It is Persian, specifically made in Isfahan, hand painted, I have one similar to this, but a newer version. this one is an antique Persian miniature art work. From looking at the back picture, it looks like khatam work, which is totally different type of art work, that tells me it was custom made with a very high quality work, perhaps belonged to a wealthy, even royal family, I would say it is over 100 years old. You have found the treasure in the trunk. I have not seen these being made recently. mine is about 40 years old. I think there are no more living artists with this specialty.
liz heisey - We have two of them that my parents purchased when they were stationed in Iran. I believe it is a "Persian" wedding mirror. It has a Persian fable painted on it.
betty lou baker weber - I love dusty old thing's.
cynthia treat - This looks like Mogul art from India.
rebecca romani - The picture above looks a lot of Qajur work from Iran. The mirror is part of it and the back looks like a rug/ceiling painting. It's probably from @ the 1920's, 1930's.
linda peters hodge - I would love to find some special piece from my family
mickey kravig baratta - How about possible Russian trunk with mirror belonging to royalty or just very rich, who traveled a lot and carried their own mirror around as there were not many in existence back then. Only the very rich... ??!! It is beautiful.
dena farsad - I'm pretty sure it's Persian (the mirror)
niki marks akbik - I think it looks Persian too. Arabic art does not show people usually. And it looks like some other Persian pieces I've seen.
maureen dawn - the mirror looks persian?
alvie cardenas - What a treasure, whatever it is!!
marie daly neil - WOW that is some painted cabinet! Awesome!!
judy kennedy carrino - The art work looks Persian, perhaps copied from a Persian rug. My mother's old steamer trunk was locked by accident. Inside is a very old wool lap robe that was used to cover legs when riding in an open touring car. I am too cheap to call a locksmith to open it, and the key has never been found. :-(
roberta carmickle - look like from India there was a legend about the rose of India Look at the turbans and thr horses
denise t. dardarian - A gravy strainer with a removable gravy boat?
nickoli far - this work of art belong my country
salliebet wildman - The painted mirror is from Iran. I have one similar I bought there.
carole love hendrix - The artwork above appears to be from India.
cat murck - beautiful today....as always, really.

Dusty Old Thing: Tonight's antiques aren't all as pretty as our reader John's matched lamps shown in this photo. Just follow the link to learn more about his lamps and see the other "things". It goes from a story of quality to something very strange...Comments:
linda orme winters - This is the one my husband's mother and father left us.
cindy white - I have a set of the hurricane lamps. They belonged to my Grandma that died before I was born.
brenda thompson davis - They are beautiful
berta phillips - I recently acquired this one from a friend. It had been in her husband's family.
marty cummings - I had to do a double take when I first saw these lamps because we have one with the same shade!
tracy l. clairmont shotts - We are selling an Aladdin "Gone with the Wind" lamp this weekend...go to www.ucmarshall.com to look at it up close - it has not been converted to electric! It has all original parts!
dusty old thing - So far we've just had one person comment on the last photo in today's feature...
margaret schweigart - I think the "iron legs with paws" might have come from a wood stove, we have an old wood stove in our garage with the same paws still attached to it :)
tracy fulmer norris - I LOVE THIS! So beautiful!
barbara dees syphrett - Beautiful lamps! I also enjoyed the donkey boy in the article. Would love to know what, why, etc. So enjoy your posts!
donah gail lett faircloth - my mother n law had one of these
kay handshoe - I have hurricane lamps theyare green and flowers
barbara nutt - Beverly Watson Tate, these look like yours!
bec mccoy - I remember my Grandmother had a lamp similar to this.
cammie doherty - I also have a set from my grandmother who passed. I love mine with the solid brass claw's.
tana ham buckley - I have one with Lions heads on it that was given to my mother by my father over 55yrs ago.
john mcmillin - I broke a lamp similar to this at my Aunt's house, thank goodness it wasn't new.
nancy shackelford - I can't find a way to comment on the webpage. But, as for making use of those old claw tub claws. Why not swab with stove black, and then wax. It all washes off if desired and does no harm. Then apply felt or other cushioning on the tops and place a glass on top as a patio coffee table.
tommi rosenberg - my Mother-in-law, Lucille Kirks, painted the most gorgeous glass globe lamps I have ever seen. Giving up the lamps was one of the harder things in my divorce!
delano winstead - I have my Mom's won't let no one touch it...
louise cornutt - I've got one almost like this, mine is old!

Dusty Old Thing: Just follow the link and then share your ideas...Comments:
donna reid - The 2 in the middle and the one on the far right are Shirley Temple. I think the one on the left is Heidi.
janet kibler - Maybe only "creepy" for younger people, we loved them and played with them everyday :)
sue ann peterson smith - The doll on right with red hair braids is a Saucy Walking Doll from the 1950's. I still have mine.
sharon scobert - The walking doll with braids is not Saucy Walker but she could be a look-a-like made by various doll companies . . I still have my own doll - 1951/1952 and recently had her restored . . My sister also had her walking doll restored . . Walking dolls were very popular in the 50's and came in sizes from 16"/18-19"/22" and larger . . Some dolls had a synthetic wig . . My doll has a mohair wig . . This doll looks like she has a mohair wig . . It's thinner than the synthetics . . I'm not an expert but love my dolls . . My guess is this doll could be made by either IMPCO, Sears or another unknown doll company . . like my doll . . You have to look at her tummy grill where the Mama sound came from . . A lot of the doll companies had their own pattern for the tummy grills . . The tummy grills helps identify the dolls . . Thanks for sharing . . The dolls are wonderful . .
flint g antiques - Dollreference.com is a great site that has helped me quite a bit...Good luck
flint g antiques - Hello...The Polish doll looks almost like a tea cozy...Does she have legs? She is a souvenir...That's an ADORABLE Boston Terrier pull toy from the 20s or so...The standing doll LOOKS LIKE a Madame Alexander example to me...Maybe the 1942 Special Girl, which is always marked by its maker on its back shoulder plate OR MAYBE MA's Mcguffy Ana...Is she marked?
nan daniels trice - The Doll on the right I believe is a Saucy Walker Doll.
mary ann harsch - The doll on the far right 1950S 60S IDEAL SAUCY WALKER 17" DOLL. I still have my doll.
maria stahl - Has anyone determined what the little red-haired doll is made of? Is she hard plastic or compo? - How is she jointed? Look for markings on the back of her neck or torso. Honestly, and I'm not being creepy here, it's a lot easier to ID dolls with their clothes off. :)
diane mardis - Doll on left is what collectors call a boudoir doll either made by and "Standard" if it has under its cothing, cloth and compo arms, compo hands and feet/molded shoes or made by the "Sterling doll company" if it has all compo arms and hands and molded compo shoes/feet. The doll on right is a "Saucy Walker " hard plastic doll.
janice reed - Doll with braids is like one I still have. I was once told was Saucy Walker 1953. But mine had brown braids and thicker. Her lips parted and show tongue and teeth. Legs have screws and arms attached with hooks and thick rubberband. Made of hard plastic wood. Holes in chest allowed her to say mama when turned over. Eyes realistic open and close. She survived a fire and a flood and had some home surgeries for arms and legs. I know her well :) Was my favorite doll (I named Mary, all others I named Susie) and present from my Dad. I think her original dress was red and white but Mom had to make new ones for her.
doris faye lyon - I have a blonde doll like the one in braids given to me by my grandpa in 1956.
stephanie shapiro - We had a similar loveseat (with two chairs) that came out of the Sears and Roebuck CATALOGUE. . . in the early 1900's
candy unbehauen killion - After clicking the link to all of the antiques you have listed for today, see that Pure Food Kitchenette your post mentions in a .pdf of an upstate New York newspaper from 1914; taking it further, it looks like it was a limited edition food organizer from probably the Genesee Pure Food Company ( same town the ad was in). Owner of that was Orator Woodward. He's probably best known for buying up a fledgling dessert brand and then renaming Genesee Pure Food after it in 1923--becoming Jell-O. Sources: various, fifteen minutes in Google :)
carol dyess thomas - The red headed doll is a Saucy Walker Doll, still have mine !
nancy pennington - my father sent me a doll very much like the one on the left - from Italy during WWII.
annie gray-clark - We have a clock very similar to yours. Where yours is etched on flat wood, ours is carved and more raised. The clockworks look the same, as does the gold reverse painted glass door. Ours is dated 1870.
joann stoll - The doll on the far left is a boudoir doll.
kerrie bullard - Left- Grettle- Right Pippi Long Stocking? Middle- Shirley Temple.
beth mannix clancy - Isn't the red-haired doll with the braids a Saucy Walker doll from 1953-54?
camille fiorillo - I think the appeal of a metal kitchenette at the time would be to make it mouse proof.

Dusty Old Thing: This wonderful early 19th century tea caddy was shared with us by Rita, one of our readers. We selected it to be in our Featured Member Antiques this morning. If you missed them, you can catch up at -> http://dustyoldthing.com/Comments:
rita robinson saldana - In 1773 the Boston tea party happened so this made spices very expensive to purchase. This Tea Caddy is from the early 1800s when sugar & tea would be locked away, separating the dark tea from the light tea, which is what the wooden containers were for. The Crystal bowl used for the sugar in most cases. The lady of the house would hold the skeleton key so that the sugar & tea wouldn't be misused. It was a luxury item in which you would display it in view so guests could see the extent of your wealth. :-)
kristine wells novoa - I LOVE dusty old things!
betty j king - Would love to have one of these for my tea. One side for the dark tea and one side for the green tea...cool.
kay mcdermott - I have seen some great tea caddies on Antique Roadshow, this is one of the nicer ones.
maryann merritt - how beautiful...wow that is a new one for me...how neat to be able to share it with us..thanks Rita...
rory lemond - wow i love this tea caddy. this descriptiion by Rita was informative.
cassaundra gilchrist - Teas and spices were expensive commodities and some of the storage containers were truly elaborate based on the wealth of the owners. The Brits and French had very elaborate Tea and Spice storage caddies. They were held under lock and key by a Chatelaine (head house keeper) and theft of tea or spices was punishable.
linda krafty - I love these tea caddy's.
vicki castillo-libby - Hey I am looking for a pot belly stove
kathryne sego patterson - I love this site. Now to find out why they call these things what they do. Beautiful. I did not get to inherit any of these things. I love to look at them
david capes - I've never heard of or seen a tea caddy. What was its purpose or use? :-)
betty powell - Beautiful! I saw one of these this past weekend on a tour of the historical Ramsey House in Knoxville.

andrea d. westwood - And all I have is a tea tin! This is beautiful!
kathy forrest mcguinness - Also, my favorite book about tea caddies is, "Antique Boxes, Tea Caddies, & Society: 1700-1880" (Schiffer Book for Collectors with Price Guide) http://www.amazon.com/Antique-Boxes-Tea-Caddies-Society/dp/0764316885

elaine mcalum haizlip - I really enjoy Dusty old things because it helps me identify some of the things I have collected over the years or have seen at shops and wondered what they were. Keep it going, guys!
susan glitschka - Question for you folks at Dusty Old Things? I've got a piece of jewelry that belonged to my mother. I've tried to find something similar on line. But nothing even comes close. How would I go about uploading a picture to you? I'm looking for it's origin. It was a gift from my dad to her in the early to mid 70s. I know it's pewter with a heavy chain. The pendant is a cookoo clock. You can inbox me the information. Thank you. But I will also check out your website. Have a awesome day.

dianna willis gilliam - I have that same Gingerbread cookie cutter!
janet frost lund - I have my grandparent's bedroom set: double bed with high ornate headboard, marble top bureau with little marble shelves going up side of mirror, and a commode to match. My grandson wants it for a guest room when he has his own home. Love the memories and the beauty of all these old things.
carol a. feypel - like the bedroom set
claudette fulton - I hope you all know it is near impossible to find one of those tea caddy thingys. I had to bring home mine from the cabin (where we USE mostly OLD STUFF).
diane falk - And the best thing about "antiques"...is that of the older kitchen equipment! Most aren't electric (I know...duh), but are better constructed, last longer, and work better. I don't mind the extra labor...it's FUN! And, it makes a better product!
cece redmond - That bedroom set was given to my 4th great grandfather as a wedding present and they were
cece redmond - That bedroom suit is older than Victorian age
debra collins - simply love that picture
sherry wiltfong - I still make coffee in mine
lisa edwards maans - ME TOO!!! <3 THE SITE!!
dorleen duffy - And I do use a rolling pin for pie crusts,,,
dorleen duffy - Anyone notice the egg beater in the photo? I love these but had to buy one with a plastic handle because the old ones are considered antiques or are very scarce. Anyone know where they sell new ones as sturdy as the old ones? These work better than whisks. Love the coffee pot! Brings back lots of memories and also made really really good coffee!!
maggie smags pace - Yep Ann Ann Pace. I see it. Love this!
cheri keys - i make my coffee in one of those

Dusty Old Thing: Ended up today chatting with Jerome Redfearn of Central Kentucky Antiques, Georgetown, at the quaint and relaxed Oxford Antique Market. Jerome is holding a fine coin silver Kendrick julep cup. On the left is a circa 1895 whiskey jug...differing styles for drinking one of the state's earliest products.Comments:
gail najarian - Is that a Hitchcock table made in Riverton, CT in the van?
suzy hager - When I was little I saw something peeking out of the dirt in my neighbors pig pen. The pig pen was about 10 acres. I dug it out and it was one of these old jugs. I hope my Mom still has that.
dusty old thing - Just want to emphasize that a coin silver julep cup is a wonderful thing to see at a small village antiques fair like this one, especially a cup by a known and valued maker like Kendrick of Louisville. They have been on Roadshow. The jug was not for moonshine despite Kentucky's well-deserved reputation during Prohibition. It came from a Lexington distillery in the 1890's and marketed as "Old Elk". The table also was wonderful; typical of country tables in the area in the mid 1800's. Basically, however, antiquing on a Saturday and meeting great people is such a treat!
diane dees golden - Love the table it's on!!
ellen jordan - Love the jug and the table!!!! I collect the Albany slip jugs and crocks.
marietta derra - I like the table.
angela peavey vanoy - I think my ancestors had a part in the moonshine business but theirs was probably in a pint jar. Lol

rory lemond - Looks like there were many interesting things it is always lovely and fun to browse..usually you find something you just can't live without...
charlotte rains - I want that desk and table!!
shelley boudreaux lavergne - moonshine was in that jug lol
truman dean - oh that dusty old thing is cuter than a bug in a rug.
carol zavacki - I just found a table just like that, in a shed at the house I'm at currently for a few months, it's old, and painted white, but brought out and placed it by a Hugh oak for plants...
debbie schollard - I like the table he's using also :) I would enjoy Kentucky and Tennessee shopping. Here in Cali we also have tons of wonderful antiques.
