    Yellow Ware Figural Match holder w/strikeplate

The "33" could be 1933-- year of manufacture. It could be a bit more or less older than that. I have no idea who the subject of the figural...

    Ceramic Umbrella Stands

    Another super-condensed informal history bit: Although various home made forms of Umbrella holders have existed since (obviously) the invention of the Umbrella, the earliest forms of what could today be called Umbrella stands existed as mere components of large wooden Victorian Hall Stands in...

    So hot, almost too hot to dig!

    Anyone want to help me date a Stoneware Jar?

    I recently bought this Jar at a local antique store. At least I think it's a jar. I figured it was made in a 19th century kiln. But I'm not 100% sure what part of the 19th century it's from. It almost looks like an ovoid jar, but I don't know if I'd call it an ovoid jar because it's at it's...
