WHAT???????

As an antique and or vintage dealer a question we hear quite a bit is..."What is it?"

So today I am showing photos of 5 items that I want you to identify and tell what it would have been used for.....post your answers in the comment section....whoever correctly identifies the most items wins....absolutely nothing....but the satisfaction of being right :)

                 Item #1...this should be easy.....

            Item #2...a little tougher to identify?

           Item #3, this is actually a "Who is it?"

 
Item #4...the metal pieces in the bag are what you need to identify :)


Item #5....Last but not least.....a hint...you can push the red top section down...


                                  Have fun!    VE

I'll go with the Duck on No's 1-4, but I think No. 5 is a biscuit cutter. (Staples Easy Button is a much more fun answer though.)

I think both of you need to find VintageStation and see if she has any ideas....just sayin....

The Duck is wrong on No. 2 isn't she?

Runs With Scissors said...

Bet the duck is wrong on #1. sigh.

A Collective Journal said...

Maybe the duck and Pepper should get together and try again.....LOL!

peppercorns said...

Just a thought....do you know what all five are ACJ? Or are you hoping we'll figure them out and let you know? :)

(The Duck is working on it for you.)

peppercorns said...

Number 1 are wasp's nests....

Runs With Scissors said...

I think #2 is a cow milker

A Collective Journal said...

I do know what each one is :) LOL!

Past Pieces Vintage said...

#3 is Henry.

A Collective Journal said...

Correct guesses so far....

#1...wasp nest
#3...Henry, Carl Anderson's cartoon character (good going!)

I think #2 is a candle snuffer...well, looking at it again the angle is kind of wrong.
#4 is a sample for something....metal....hmmmm
#5 is a chopper.
These are fun, even if I got them all wrong, except for the wasps nest

A Collective Journal said...

Check back next Monday for the answers!
