Welcome to follower # 77 - Seens from the back of my Eyelids - Musings from my cozy corner.
Another great blog to link and share - Vintage Things Thursday, hosted by Colorado Lady.
The shoe shine box below needed some TLC - the section joined by hinges was cracked (you can see the lighter line where a piece of wood was chipped out) so glue and clamps were used. Clear wax was used to clean the inside which had a great deal of the 'shoe grease' black wax all over the bottom. Clear wax was also used to clean the outside as well.
|Found this great old shoe shine - in this color ! Inside, full of great polishes and brushes.|
The small motion lamp is in very good shape, My parents a larger version on our first TV back in the 60's. This smaller version (about 12 inches tall) throws a great shadow as the inner cylinder rotates. The plates are Crescent China are are dated on the back - 1911 and 1910.
|Who can resist such great teaplates. Remember this TV motion lamp with Niagra Falls motif - 50's or early 60's.|
The Rooster Planter is about 4 inches tall. It fits in well with Rooster/Chicken collectibles. The lantern has not been cleaned, painted or altered from its original state. Rusty, worn, well used.
|I think this is a railway lantern, rusty and intact. The Rooster planter is likely from the mid-fifties.|
