Victorian Cast Iron Fireplace Front : $25
This is a Fireplace Iron Front to go around the FireBox. It is from the Victorian House (1892) I had in Tennessee in the 1970's. It is actually part of a Coal Grate system that was put in Wood Burning Fireplaces to convert them to burn Coal. I converted the Fireplace back to wood and have kept, and moved this thing for 30 years...... I will throw in the Naval Jelly, Primer and Black Spray Paint to finish it...LOL (They are not 30 years old) Best Guess this FirePlace Front is from the early 1900's. The detail looks Art Deco.

Could be used to create a false Fireplace or as a decorative piece for Garden or Patio.  I also have about 30 of the original "Turtle Back" Tiles from that period (Late 1800's) that are brand new and were for around the fronts of all 6 fireplaces in my Victorian house. They were stored in the Attic when I bought the place. (Can send Pics if interested)


Outside dimensions are 26 1/2" wide X 30" Tall 
Inside opening 20" wide X 25" tall  (Inside firebox dimensions can be adjusted with Firebrick Lining in a Fireplace remodel.) 

Railroad Flasher for Track Crossing Signal Lights:     Style "NF-2" 175 ohms per coil, 30-40 flashes per minute, for 6-8 volt DC operation. Circa 1920's. Was used as the controlling relay to flash 2 red signal lights alternately at railroad crossings.



Blue Chair Circa 1960's:   PS Modern Chair - $25........   This is a single chair from Alexander Home in PS..... Circa late 50's Early 60's..... Desk? Kitchen?

1949 Original Roy Acuff Transcription Disk (Disc):   I lived in Gallatin Tennessee from 1969 to 1980. While living there I found a "Transcription Disc" for a radio commercial produced by WLAC radio in Roy Acuff's voice for a Billfold being sold by a company in Gallatin. The date is 5-10-49... I had it recorded to tape but the tape is lost and I no longer have a turntable. But my best recollection of its content was just Roy Acuff promoting the company for a Mail-Order Business. (no Music) just Roy speaking. This discs is the studio master recording of Roy's actual speaking voice. 

The Label shows "WLAC Nashville Tennessee .... 5-10-49.... speed 33 1/3... Title Roy Acuff Billfolds.... Time 1:43 (just over 1 minute) ..... Instructions:  Start Outside. (The 'Start Outside' was for the DJ's to know in which direction they were recorded.) Columbia Programs 50,000 watts".

Randy's Records was the name everyone knew from their sponsorship of 50's late night radio. (When a lot of Midwesterners and Southerners could receive it). But obviously there was Mail order from Gallatin Earlier.

The Paper label is water stained and general condition of the Disc is poor.. it was playable in the 70's. Since then, has been in storage. The Disc is Aluminum (12 inches Dia.) with 3 drilled holes for the transcription Machine.

The time in my life has come to start getting rid of "Things" and this is one of them.  I am not able to find info on how many of these discs still survive. They don't seem to show up often on the WWW but someone out there must be archiving them.

Antique Cooking Trammel:   This a Ring-Type trammel for adjusting the height a pot hangs over a fire on a Bar-Type Colonial Fireplace Crane. It adjusts from shortest 18" to longest 35" to vary the temperature of the cooking as well as for different sizes of cast iron cooking pots. Trammels were made in many styles and before the Industrial revolution so each one is different. Generally made by a towns Blacksmith and to the specification of the buyer. S-Hooks were more commonly used but wealthier colonialist's would have trammels made. It was designed to fit a "bar" type fireplace crane.

This one is obviously had wrought and I have left it in the condition I found it originally in the ruins of a log cabin in Middle Tennessee in the 1970's. It adjusts in 2" increments from 18" to 35" on 9 rings. That area of Tennessee was settled in early 1800's.  Google Fireplace Cranes under images to see more types of these

This is fairly rare as not many of these have survived. .       $25 


Basket: was given to me by an 80+ yr old neighbor as a house warming gift (sewing basket filled with thread, needles, measure tape, etc.) in 1983. She said she bought it from a roadside stand in the 1920's on an Indian reservation in the desert southwest while coming west by train
