About this Page

It seems that everybody is selling something on the Internet and few sites provide any free information about antiques and collectibles. Well, we sell things too but we also provide some free information about the items we sell and collect. This page is designed to provide a quick reference for the experienced collector in identifying and dating some items. It is not intended to be a definitive guide but only a quick reference (This information should not be used as a buying or selling guide.). The information provided is accurate to the best of our knowledge; however, the user should consult the standard reference sources for confirmation of this information -- we assume no liability for the information provided herein. Indeed, the references we consult often conflict in identifying and dating items.

If you want to support this work (and encourage further development of online information about antiques and collectibles), buy a screen saver. They're inexpensive, colorful, and even useful for preventing monitor "burn-in." Use our online purchase page (you can, of course, try out the shareware screen savers for free before purchase) and then send an e-mail indicating that you learned about the screen saver while using this online guide.
