Super cool rocket ship bank from the 1950's. This was given out by Equitable Security Trust Company in Wilmongton Delaware. The labels are a bit rubbed out (See photos) but otherwise nice original finish with mild age wear. Great look throughout and really screams 1950's. Mechanism is a little codgity but does work; A spot of oil would probably do wonders.

Interesting old cue stick trimmer. Basically this is meant to square off a cue stick if a new tip is being put on. Good shape and would probably work just fine if the blade is sharpened a bit. Sort of works like a giant pencil sharpener but with the blade positioned to flatten instead of sharpen. A little over 5 inches total length. Cool billiard related antique to have sitting around the pool room for conversation purposes. I think this dates to right around 1900.

Very nice named British Life Saving Medal. RLSS bar coincides with medal obverse that reads 'ROYAL LIFE SAVING SOCIETY ESTABLISHED 1891' and shows a sea rescue in process. The reverse reads 'AWARDED TO' and is engraved with the name 'M. S. COSSETT AUG 1926'. Around the edge of the obverse is Latin, probably the society slogan. The second bar is the date 1933, probably when the award was presented. Both bars are on the original ribbon which is usually long gone...

old walrus tusk with strange billiken carving. While usually represented as a smiling cherub type creature this face is more haunting and menacing. It is also less invasivly carved into the tusk which otherwise keeps its natural shape. A little bit around the back side and below the face is a signature or maker mark. A hole at the smoothed off base indicates that this was once mounted on something. Very interesting piece. Just under nine inches in length.

Very nice set of three Inuit ivory figural carvings. Older pieces with some of the dark lines that ivory grain often shows over the years. These were probably mounted on something at one time as there are holes in the fellows' feet. The tallest is 5.5cm. Nice little grouping.

Very cool pair of Marx Toys helmets. These are doughboy style but WWII vintage. These are red and I think there is a silver version also. Terrific condition when one looks at what is usually offered for sale. These were toys in every sense of the word and after spending years battling in neighborhood backyards the condition usually suffers significantly. These have good shape and excellent remaining paint. The first one shown in detail is complete with a nice strong decal...

Very cool tortoise shell style Bakelite goggles. Shown here with my personal assistant Betty who hasn't complained about anything in years. I have seen many various ages assigned to these but I think they are 19040's to early 1950's but are currently very much in fashion with "steampunk" style...

Neat stickpin with a bubble containing real, natural gold flakes. Probably not enough there to retire on but it is a good conversation piece for sure. I do not believe the pin outside of the bubble is gold.

Wonderful set of four photos photos of Anzio Annie or the Anzio Express taken by and including American soldiers. These look to have been removed from an album. Needless to say, unpublished photos of such a historically important item such as this are a good find. Being 4 different photos these are priced to sell. Anzio Annie and Anzio Express are the two Krups built rail guns that were shelling American positions at the Anzio landing...

Fine ivory perfume bottle. Not as elaborate as some but an appealing example nonetheless. While it does have some age I would not only, consider it antique. Shipment to US only, minus California

This is a very interesting armored car cigarette lighter that does look to be WWII vintage or earlier. At 13.5 ounces and almost 5 inches long this is not designed to be carried around in a pocket; Rather it is meant to be left on one's desk as an interesting conversation piece with visitors. There are so many different types of armored cars that vary so little in appearance that, with inaccuracies of a small object like this, I can not tell nationality. Could be Japanese or it could be British...

Lovely hand tooled leather belt and holster sized for a big guy. Both pieces match and display very detailed two tone work. The holster is professional quality with lower ties and top loop for firearm and has smooth lines throughout. Belt has loops for 28 rounds. Belt is marked as being made in Mexico with the numbers 44 45 and 48. I assume that this means it is optimally sized for a 45 but can fit from 44 to 48 and my measurements seem to agree with that...

Yeah, just because everyone should have a ray gun. Nice vintage toy. Does have a separation along its seam on the top but which turns off of the seam and becomes a crack on the bottom. It is basically invisible if pushed together so certainly repairable. Priced accordingly. When the trigger is pulled there is something that spins on the inside that makes sparks and a crackling kind of zap sound. The ray that shoots out must be disabled because I used this on my family with no significant results...

This might be the greatest country on earth but that does not mean we don't periodically do stupid things. For example, Prohibition which made recreational alcohol consumption illegal thus opening the door for the antics of guys like Al Capone. It rarely works out when one tries to impose their morality on others. Prohibition began in 1920. This medal is for a delegate to the Atlantic City NJ Prohibition National Convention of 1912 when this movement was gathering steam. When seeking prohibition...

Very nice Eskimo carved billiken. I believe this is walrus ivory. The label is a bit rumpled and difficult to photograph but it reads "Genuine Ivory, Eskimo Made" and the center shows a smiling Eskimo fellow. 6.5cm tall. Ships only to US minus California.

Cute little cat netsuke. At about 3.2cm high this is not a large example but it is tastefully carved and has a nice ivory grain throughout. Signed Mitsu Yuki.
