The Harvard Library That Protects The World's Rarest Colors

The Harvard Library That Protects The World's Rarest Colors | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
Today, every color imaginable is at your fingertips. You can peruse paint swatches at hardware stores, flip through Pantone books, and fuss with the color finder that comes with most computer programs, until achieving the hue of your heart's desire. But rewind to a few centuries ago and finding that one specific color might have meant trekking to a single mineral deposit in remote Afghanistan—as was the case with lapis lazuli, a rock prized for its brilliant blue hue, which made it more valuable than gold in medieval times.

Of Swastikas & Confederate Flags (Collectibles Vs Living Culture) | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

I was watching Morning Joe and they were freaking out that eBay (and perhaps others) were selling swastikas while removing confederate flags. They said such an announcement to remove the flags was hypocritical and a pandering publicity move.

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!
