Profiles Behind Vintage Silhouette Artists Are Shady | Inherited Values

Profiles Behind Vintage Silhouette Artists Are Shady | Inherited Values | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

While I love the vintage fashionista who was compelled to have not one, but two, portraits of herself done at the 1934 Chicago World’s Fair (and I am quite enamored with her hat — which is either amply feathered or sports an actual bird!), it is the silhouette artist himself which mainly concerns me.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Perhaps you can add to this story?

Preserving The Integrity Of An Old Glass Preserves Bottle

Preserving The Integrity Of An Old Glass Preserves Bottle | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

I knew that whatever was in this old glass jar was not a “good thing,” but somehow the metallic silver tone still sparkled and beckoned from behind the decorative molded glass. Look how the caramel-colored whatever-it-is seemed to flow along the inside of the smooth art deco lines! And who doesn’t love the dear Old Manse paper label on the front?! So I snapped it up.


But, oh, the work!

Meet Me Down by Schuster’s (Vintage Department Store Memories & Collectibles) | Inherited Values | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Like many people, my first jobs were in retail. It was work I actually loved; but retail doesn’t pay enough to support a family, so I left it & got a college degree. Years later, I still consider myself to be a “retail brat” — and so I collect vintage retail store items. Like most collectors, I tend to focus on the names that mean something to me. For me, these are the department stores of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Keystone Manufacturing Company was a toy company based out of Boston, Massachusetts,  thousands of miles away from the Keystone movie studios.   This projector was designed to occupy the kids for ten to fifteen minutes at a time, each one taking turns cranking the projector at the right speed.

Chicago World's Fair 1934 - In Trudel's Words

Chicago World's Fair 1934 - In Trudel's Words | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

These are excerpts from letters written by Leonard Grossman's mother Trudel. Trudel was a young German Jewish woman who arrived in Chicago in May, 1934. There is much more about Trudel and her experiences on the blog Trudel's Truth by Leonard Grossman, one of Trudel's sons. That blog is a record of the young immigrant's letters home. The only parts of the letters that are included here are the parts that mention the Chicago World's Fair.

World’s Largest Stamp Gallery to Open in Washington, D.C.

World’s Largest Stamp Gallery to Open in Washington, D.C. | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

On Sunday, September 22, the original Inverted Jenny goes on permanent view for the first time in Smithsonian history. Presented in a four-stamp block with three singles, the Jennies are the crown jewels of the new William H. Gross Stamp Gallery, a 12,000-square-foot addition to the Postal Museum. The gallery will feature some 20,000 philatelic objects, a handful of which are reproduced below. Curator Daniel Piazza hopes that the Jennies will become a “stop on the tour of Washington,” canonized with other great artifacts in American history.

Silent Film and the Keyboard Art Pioneers | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
Fans of silent film were just as devoted to their favorite stars as we are today. In fact, a couple of fans from the era took their devotion to a new level, pioneering a kind of art that wouldn’t gain true popularity until the 1970s.

Antique Rosary

Antique Rosary | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

This antique rosary contains a hidden compartment where relics could be kept. Most often, these rosaries contained soil from the catacombs in Rome where many Catholic martyrs are buried. These were also used as mourning jewelry and are sometimes found with locks of hair or ashes.


The crucifix is ebony wood and the beads are dyed green bone.
