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:
ybur liag - Wow, that doll on the left looks like Baby Jane, no?
zetineb ardnos - That is seriously sweet
flactem eyag yelrihs - This is a beautiful picture. The little girl is pretty anyway but the way she is dressed and her toys are just perfect.
eromlle nnalorac - 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.
lag aras - just love these old photos~~
renral norahs - Beautiful little girl!
nelrow emuaer ycnan - This picture isn't nearly that old - its from 1949 and it's my grandfather and I watching TV.
aert namdoog einnoc - Precious memories. Her two prized possessions.
edaw ydoom nasus - Very cute, this family had money, most little girls didn't have cute chairs like this
eidae adnil - This child is mesmerizing. So precious. I bet she was a beautiful adult.
gnol yduj - I love this picture!
selrahc arual - loving this photo
reklaw erytnicm eitac - Too bad you don't have the teddy bear. It's safe to say it's a beautiful old mohair Steiff.
labqi anashkur - 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!
worrom lepa mik - 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.
hcneb ycnan - What a beautiful little girl.
eugaop .e airotciv - and a steiff bear taboot!
eebmuc regnillif sirod - I love the teddy bear!
lledyah nil - 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:
ebaf-nuitsrif asil - 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.
silliw llewop refinnej - I have an old rolltop that has a secret compartment.... it's on the side though, not in the rolltop!
tuort nesretep adnohr - I love anything has history and secrets to it. <3
anidnam niwdoog nerak - 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.
drawoh nedrob ykceb - I have this same desk...love it! Bought it at a yard sale long ago for 10.00!
neil eimmat - Thi would be lovely to have as my card making desk:)
snevetssac ennaoj - Wow~who cleaned it??? :/
nosnhoj nna hael - 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...
rennoc nna-oj - Mine has claw feet.
smailliw yreve nasus - I have one with secret compartments also altho I think it's from the late 1800's.
prahs ecinaj - I love all the compartments and little storage spaces!
nerob-skram tap - I wish I had mine back
eetacm yecart - Sears put out that color dressers & desks, same hardware, early 1960's. They called it Early American.
notley ysiad - I have seen one just like this the harrisons owned it and it got destroyed in a fire in 1954.
giwro lm - Beautiful piece of furniture
niahs yesac - 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.
nosrehpcm leahcim - I have one just like it.
seirrew adnil - wow to the person "Lisa" that bought a sec desk for $75 was a good deal!! Do you have to work on it?? Lucky :)
seirrew adnil - 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!!!! :)
ybgab ynnekcm ardnas - I have an old roll to with a secret compartment on top. I even has a phone jack under pigeon holes

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:
tserof ibbob - 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.

setab f naej - i love the little lamp in the picture. how much???
ttruh yllas - WISH I'D BEEN THERE!!

nitsua uol yram - bobbi it,s about what you like/// i have my grandma,s icebox it is historyfed 6 on a block of ice unreal///

yksolvap siol - 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.
smailliw htur - I enjoy looking at all those yesterday from time ago I to love to collect certain things
nosnibor sillop ava - 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:
sucram f nna - Can anyone identify this....? It's driving me crazy...someone said something about a chocolate thing? Halp...
eneerg aicram - The locked trunk find is fascinating
rak nihsuon - 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.
yesieh zil - 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.
rebew rekab uol ytteb - I love dusty old thing's.
taert aihtnyc - This looks like Mogul art from India.
inamor acceber - 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.
egdoh sretep adnil - I would love to find some special piece from my family
attarab givark yekcim - 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.
dasraf aned - I'm pretty sure it's Persian (the mirror)
kibka skram ikin - I think it looks Persian too. Arabic art does not show people usually. And it looks like some other Persian pieces I've seen.
nwad neeruam - the mirror looks persian?
sanedrac eivla - What a treasure, whatever it is!!
lien ylad eiram - WOW that is some painted cabinet! Awesome!!
onirrac ydennek yduj - 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. :-(
elkcimrac atrebor - look like from India there was a legend about the rose of India Look at the turbans and thr horses
nairadrad .t esined - A gravy strainer with a removable gravy boat?
raf ilokcin - this work of art belong my country
namdliw tebeillas - The painted mirror is from Iran. I have one similar I bought there.
xirdneh evol elorac - The artwork above appears to be from India.
kcrum tac - 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:
sretniw emro adnil - This is the one my husband's mother and father left us.
etihw ydnic - I have a set of the hurricane lamps. They belonged to my Grandma that died before I was born.
sivad nospmoht adnerb - They are beautiful
spillihp atreb - I recently acquired this one from a friend. It had been in her husband's family.
sgnimmuc ytram - I had to do a double take when I first saw these lamps because we have one with the same shade!
sttohs tnomrialc .l ycart - 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!
gniht dlo ytsud - So far we've just had one person comment on the last photo in today's feature...
tragiewhcs teragram - 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 :)
sirron remluf ycart - I LOVE THIS! So beautiful!
tterhpys seed arabrab - Beautiful lamps! I also enjoyed the donkey boy in the article. Would love to know what, why, etc. So enjoy your posts!
htolcriaf ttel liag hanod - my mother n law had one of these
eohsdnah yak - I have hurricane lamps theyare green and flowers
ttun arabrab - Beverly Watson Tate, these look like yours!
yoccm ceb - I remember my Grandmother had a lamp similar to this.
ytrehod eimmac - I also have a set from my grandmother who passed. I love mine with the solid brass claw's.
yelkcub mah anat - I have one with Lions heads on it that was given to my mother by my father over 55yrs ago.
nillimcm nhoj - I broke a lamp similar to this at my Aunt's house, thank goodness it wasn't new.
droflekcahs ycnan - 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.
grebnesor immot - 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!
daetsniw onaled - I have my Mom's won't let no one touch it...
ttunroc esiuol - I've got one almost like this, mine is old!

Dusty Old Thing: Just follow the link and then share your ideas...Comments:
dier annod - The 2 in the middle and the one on the far right are Shirley Temple. I think the one on the left is Heidi.
relbik tenaj - Maybe only "creepy" for younger people, we loved them and played with them everyday :)
htims nosretep nna eus - The doll on right with red hair braids is a Saucy Walking Doll from the 1950's. I still have mine.
trebocs norahs - 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 . .
seuqitna g tnilf - Dollreference.com is a great site that has helped me quite a bit...Good luck
seuqitna g tnilf - 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?
ecirt sleinad nan - The Doll on the right I believe is a Saucy Walker Doll.
hcsrah nna yram - The doll on the far right 1950S 60S IDEAL SAUCY WALKER 17" DOLL. I still have my doll.
lhats airam - 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. :)
sidram enaid - 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.
deer ecinaj - 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.
noyl eyaf sirod - I have a blonde doll like the one in braids given to me by my grandpa in 1956.
oripahs einahpets - We had a similar loveseat (with two chairs) that came out of the Sears and Roebuck CATALOGUE. . . in the early 1900's
noillik neuahebnu ydnac - 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 :)
samoht sseyd lorac - The red headed doll is a Saucy Walker Doll, still have mine !
notgninnep ycnan - my father sent me a doll very much like the one on the left - from Italy during WWII.
kralc-yarg einna - 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.
llots nnaoj - The doll on the far left is a boudoir doll.
drallub eirrek - Left- Grettle- Right Pippi Long Stocking? Middle- Shirley Temple.
ycnalc xinnam hteb - Isn't the red-haired doll with the braids a Saucy Walker doll from 1953-54?
olliroif ellimac - I think the appeal of a metal kitchenette at the time would be to make it mouse proof.

Dusty Old Thing: There are so many kinds of antiques that seem to draw us in. Everyone has what appeals to them, things that seem to whisper a story. Here are some antiques recently posted by our readers that seem like they have seen the passing of history in days gone by. Hope...Comments:

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:
anadlas nosnibor atir - 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. :-)
aovon sllew enitsirk - I LOVE dusty old things!
gnik j ytteb - Would love to have one of these for my tea. One side for the dark tea and one side for the green tea...cool.
ttomredcm yak - I have seen some great tea caddies on Antique Roadshow, this is one of the nicer ones.
ttirrem nnayram - how beautiful...wow that is a new one for me...how neat to be able to share it with us..thanks Rita...
dnomel yror - wow i love this tea caddy. this descriptiion by Rita was informative.
tsirhclig ardnuassac - 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.
ytfark adnil - I love these tea caddy's.
ybbil-ollitsac ikciv - Hey I am looking for a pot belly stove
nosrettap oges enyrhtak - 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
sepac divad - I've never heard of or seen a tea caddy. What was its purpose or use? :-)
llewop ytteb - Beautiful! I saw one of these this past weekend on a tour of the historical Ramsey House in Knoxville.
ineddul ennaej - Wow how beautiful
ssenniugcm tserrof yhtak - For those of you with questions about tea caddies, Wikipedia has a great entry for tea caddies. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tea_caddy
doowtsew .d aerdna - And all I have is a tea tin! This is beautiful!
ssenniugcm tserrof yhtak - 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
rehctub nampahc eus - Beautiful and well preserved.

nosnhoj inus - oh ok I thought it was a humidor for tobacko
pilziah mulacm eniale - 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!
akhcstilg nasus - 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.

divadcm ardnas - Looks like an old coffee pot.
maillig silliw annaid - I have that same Gingerbread cookie cutter!
dnul tsorf tenaj - 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.
lepyef .a lorac - like the bedroom set
notluf ettedualc - 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).
klaf enaid - 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!
dnomder ecec - That bedroom set was given to my 4th great grandfather as a wedding present and they were

snaam sdrawde asil - ME TOO!!! <3 THE SITE!!
yffud neelrod - And I do use a rolling pin for pie crusts,,,
yffud neelrod - 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!!
ecap sgams eiggam - Yep Ann Ann Pace. I see it. Love this!
syek irehc - 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:
nairajan liag - Is that a Hitchcock table made in Riverton, CT in the van?
regah yzus - 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.
gniht dlo ytsud - 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!
nedlog seed enaid - Love the table it's on!!
nadroj nelle - Love the jug and the table!!!! I collect the Albany slip jugs and crocks.
arred atteiram - I like the table.
yonav yevaep alegna - I think my ancestors had a part in the moonshine business but theirs was probably in a pint jar. Lol

edirbcm rehpotsirhc - Roy Lee dusty old thing, looks like an interesting FB page

htims yelarb harobed - I want a coin silver julep mint cup! Love coin silver.
dnomel yror - 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...
sniar ettolrahc - I want that desk and table!!
engreval xuaerduob yellehs - moonshine was in that jug lol
naed namurt - oh that dusty old thing is cuter than a bug in a rug.
ikcavaz lorac - 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...
drallohcs eibbed - 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.
