Rare Play Performance - First Time Since 1854 | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
The origins of the English toy theatre date back to 1811 when William West published the 'first cheap theatrical print'. West’s versions of these plays, based on Astley’s Amphitheatre, have been unavailable and unperformed since West’s death in 1854, until now.

The Great American Thermos Hoard.

The Great American Thermos Hoard. | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

The reason that this caught my eye and the reason I am so enthralled by this collection (any of my close friends who know me and have been to my apartment know), has to do with the fact that I have collected thermoses on and off since I was in college. Granted I don’t have a 5000 square foot loft (oh to live in Cleveland), but I do have a bunch of these old things around all over the place. The thing is, I see the vacuum bottle as a very symbolic Americana treasure. The thermos is undoubtedly linked to workwear and America’s blue-collar roots.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

The photos are amazing!

Sixty classic cars unearthed after 50 years in massive barn find

Sixty classic cars unearthed after 50 years in massive barn find | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
From Corvettes to Aston Martins, the rising prices commanded by classic cars — especially unrestored, mostly original examples — has created a goldmine for those who hunt for old vehicles rotting away unattended in some barn. Today, a French auction house revealed a discovery it called the King Tut of barn finds; a treasure trove of 60 European cars, including a rare Ferrari missing for decades, that had been slowly decaying in western France.

Oh the things those old barns can hide...

Matthew Humenik's curator insight, December 9, 2014 11:33 AM
This is an unbelievable find, which could be considered the same as winning the lottery. One of these cars is worth around the $15 million dollar range meaning it is was of the rarest cars to be found.

1857 keepsake book with locks of hair and other ephemera - John Bunyan's Holy War

1857 keepsake book with locks of hair and other ephemera - John Bunyan's Holy War | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

John Bunyan is better known for his Pilgrim's Progress, but his "Holy War..." is similar: A classic Christian allegorical novel. This 1857 decorative edition is bound in bright red cloth boards with a gilded spine. It belonged to a Susan Angelica Getty, whose name is inscribed in the front and who seems to have used the book as a keepsake album: It contains 8 different locks of hair. I also found a sentimental poem cut from a newspaper and a large, four leaf clover pressed between the book's many pages.

"Bill bought it out of an old church," Haan told ABC News of the 1929-built organ. "We took it apart and moved it in and it took about five-and-a-half years, but that was the time we took because we had other work, too."
