I love these pin-up girls from 1969 and 1970. The Adirondack Bill Company has the best bar snacks in Upstate New York. These lovely ladies were featured on the garage wall calendars that Adirondack Bill Snacks made in the mid-century era.
This James S. Topham Foot-Locker (trunk or steamer) measures 33.25"long x 14.25"tall x 15" wide. It is a beautiful aged dark brown. After consulting with national trunk experts about this peice, I was advised that this was custom made. It was manufactured prior to the first label change of the company founded by James S. Topham in 1855.
The handles are intact (lovely) & appear to be iron.
There are 8 L brackets. One is at each of the top & bottom corners; one in the bottom back is a bit loose.
There are metal straps running around the ends.
There are small brass buttons fixed to the bottom of the trunk.
Three sides & the top are solid and intact (all one piece each).
There is a crack in the front panel that does not seem to affect the integrity of the trunk.
The lock requires a barrel key that I do not have, I am looking for one.
The trunk appears to have been nailed shut at one time, please see the front facing image for the placement of the two holes.
I have gently cleaned & hand waxed the trunk to protect the wood & metal.
The hinges are on the interior of the lid & the interior of the back. I have replaced the missing screws with vintage hardware & fixed them in place to prevent any further wear.
This military memorabilia, a beautiful olive Korean War Era steel tool box is great for the storage of larger items or a display item all on it's own. The steel is quite heavy and the latches are fully intact. There is some rust, but I think it adds a lovely patina and I have sealed it to prevent spreading with a carnuba wax finish. This was taken from a tow-behind military generator. The holes in the bottom of the box were used to attach the box to the generator and now offer ventilation within the box.

Blazon, Inc. was organized in 1946 in Ohio and since that time had manufactured and sold children's play and sport equipment including gymnasium sets and pools. In 1959 they also began to produce lawn furniture, including lawn swings and patio benches. The products were distributed and sold through various organizations including Montgomery Ward; J. C. Penney & Co.; Sears, Roebuck & Co.; Western Auto Stores; Firestone Tire & Rubber Co.; and B. F. Goodrich Stores. Its products are also exhibited and sold at various national and regional toy and houseware shows.
This is a rare and unique metal rocking horse sleigh. Made of metal and wood, it is a rocker that rocks with springs. The sides are made of thin wood, the seat, the back of the seat and footrest is metal. There is some wear due to the age and it's years of use. This is a very rare find, especially in this condition.
Given a new life as a rustic display piece, this mid century drawer could be used as open storage, wall mounted as a shadow box, or placed on end as I have shown here. The wood was thoroughly cleaned, repaired, distressed, polished, then hand painted to draw out the natural grain in a deep olive green tone. Then a hand-waxed finish was applied. The top remains the original color, a beautiful aged orange-brown. The original hardware was cleaned and reset to add a bit of mid century flair. I have shown the item in one photo with a few other SJS items to give you some ideas (hint, hint).
This little globe looks great in its intended purpose or can be repurposed in so many ways. I have seen these used in terrarium and yard lighting accent pieces. Sturdy and solid, this Vintage Pressed Glass Bubble Globe Ceiling Light Cover would be a great addition for your home, adding a touch of classic whimsy. The acorn shape is also referred to as raspberry or strawberry and the item is intended to be a globe ceiling or exterior porch light cover. The glass is in perfect shape, a testament to craftsmanship of yester-years! The base is 3 1/4" in diameter and it stands a little over 5" inches high. There are concentric circles on the base point, ending at the scalloped cap where the globe sets on the light fixture. The lip is recessed in at the middle securing your screw ends to hold the globe in place.
This beautiful lamp is eclectic yet elegant. The way light plays on the green bowl and casts shadows of the petals painted on white etched glass is beautiful. Photos don't do it justice. There is no shade with this lamp.
