History Lesson: Stirrup Cups

History Lesson: Stirrup Cups | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

This type of specialized drinking vessel was called a stirrup cup. While the form had ancient Roman precedents, they were most popular throughout the late 18th and 19th centuries. This type of cup was often presented to a rider on horseback — while their feet were in the stirrups of the saddle — when they were departing or arriving home, often from the hunt. Since stirrup cups generally have no base, the presence of servants to hand the cup (sometimes on a specially fitted tray) to the drinker was necessary and the recipient was required to down the contents fairly quickly.

The Ohio Historical Society's Lithic Laboratory – An Experiment in Experimental Archaeology

The Ohio Historical Society's Lithic Laboratory – An Experiment in Experimental Archaeology | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

In January of 1938, the Lithic Laboratory for the Eastern United States was founded at the Ohio Archaeology and Historical Society, now the Ohio Historical Society. An article in Museum Echoes, the Society's newsletter, of the same month proclaimed its purpose: “to study the lithic materials (stone, flint, etc.) pertinent to the material culture of the American aborigines, and of methods and techniques employed in their utilization.” The article went on to explain that the reason for embarking on this initiative was simply that such a study had  “been sadly neglected” by the field of archaeology prior and that finally undertaking it would help “throw light on the origin, relationships, migrations and trade routes of the ‘first Americans.’” An understanding of these “methods and techniques” and thereby the peoples that employed them was to be achieved by experimentation with flintknapping. While the basics of stone artifact production were known at the time, “the more refined techniques… continue to defy present-day skill.”

Pin Ups | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

[F]rom the 1920s to the 1970s, certain artists—including Alberto Vargas, George Petty, Gil Elvgren, Earl Moran, and Zoë Mozert—made their careers painting “pin-up” girls exclusively. This Golden Age of the pin-up art lasted until color photography took its place.

The Ultimate in Historical Naval Figures: A Lock of John Paul Jones' Hair

The Ultimate in Historical Naval Figures: A Lock of John Paul Jones' Hair | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

"The future naval officers, who live within these walls, will find in the career of the man whose life we this day celebrate, not merely a subject for admiration and respect, but an object lesson to be taken into their innermost hearts. . . . Every officer . . . should feel in each fiber of his being an eager desire to emulate the energy, the professional capacity, the indomitable determination and dauntless scorn of death which marked John Paul Jones above all his fellows.”

Antiques as Souvenirs

Antiques as Souvenirs | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Tourists have collected travel kitsch since the Crusaders plundered their way through the Holy Land.  Postcards, pennants, shot glasses, spoons, as well as,  a plethora of other items have topped the list of must haves from exotic and pastoral locales. These items are readily available at estate sales as they lose their meaning once their purchaser has passed. I have a different take on souvenir purchases; I try to find an antique or vintage piece that I can use and enjoy in my home decor.

The estate of the late Earlene S. Bowen — “the Antiques Lady” — will be sold on-site without reserve

The estate of the late Earlene S. Bowen — “the Antiques Lady” — will be sold on-site without reserve | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

In 1957, with $10,000 and a dream to get into the business, Earlean launched Bowen’s Antiques, initially as a home-based venture. Parlaying her love of Empire pieces, old Southern furniture, primitives, Americana, china, crystal and jewelry into a bulging inventory, Ms. Bowen had, by age 85, amassed an inventory worth about $1 million. And she was just hitting her stride.


“At an age when most people are well into retirement and taking life easy, Ms. Bowen was out there, charging around the country, buying new pieces and making new contacts,” Dwight Stevens said. “At age 90 she had a six-man crew and several trucks. She was just this unbelievable powerhouse of energy. People in many states knew her as ‘the Antiques Lady.’”
