  • Continental Balloon Brass Advertising Dish
    An old Tyre Company advertising dish in very nice condition for age, which appears to be 1920's. Measures 4 3/4" in diameter. Continental Caoutchouc und Gutta-Percha Compagnie” was founded in Hanover on 8th October 1871 as a joint stock company. Buffers for horseshoes and solid tires for carriages were among the first products produced since the 1870s. Consequently, in 1882, the rampant horse was adopted as trademark of the company. In 1892 Continental was the first German company to manufacture pneumatic tires for bicycles. It was the beginning of the success story of the Continental tires’ brand. The first giant pneumatic tires were made by Continental in the year 1921 replacing the solid tires used on commercial vehicles until that time. Three years later Continental advanced the cord tire and marketed “Conti-Cord” – a low pressure balloon tire. This technique enhances the driving comfort and the life of the tire. By the end of the decade Continental was the leading company in commercial tires with 91 percent market share in Germany. So it’s not surprising that in the 1930s the Brand claim: „Tyres for every class of vehicle running on wheels“ was developed. In 1943 Continental filed the patent for tubeless tires and was the first company worldwide to do so. Today the corporation employs 130,000 people at 190 locations in 35 countries.

  • JIMMIE ALLEN 'Richfield Hi Octane' Advertising Metal Badge
    The Air Adventures of Jimmie Allen was first broadcast on February 23rd, 1933 (this first stint ran through to 1937) ....the last broadcast was in1947 and this second stint ran from 1946 to 1947). The writers of Jimmie Allen had been flying aces in World War 1. They came up with the idea of a show about a boy pilot whilst at a party in Kansas City and used there experience as pilots to create and write the show. The show was one of the first to capitalise on the idea of a club as a promotional tool. To join the Jimmie Allen Flying Club all a child had to do was apply at any Skelly gas station (the initial sponsor). As a member the child received a whole host of goodies ranging from a set of wings through to a “personal” letter from Jimmie himself. An incredible 600,000 club newspapers were sent out to children each week and many thousands attended the Jimmie Allen Air Races that were held in Midwest cities. One interesting fact about this show is that the original Jimmie Allen, John Frank, was over 40 years old when the series was first aired. This badge is in MINT CONDITION and measures 1 7/8" x 1 /2".

  • This wonderful old TRUSTY SERVANT "HIRCOCERVUS" Door Knocker has a Registration date on the back for 1913 and was made by PEERAGE.Most of these old internal door knockers date to the late Victorian and Edwardian periods AND WERE OFTEN SOLD AS SOUVENIRS by the various Cathedrals, towns, and historical land marks.This is nice little knocker with excellent casting and definition ...it measures 3 1/2" in length and is of solid brass. The hircocervus was a legendary creature imagined to be half-goat, half-stag. Plato utilised the idea of a fabulous goat-stag to express the philosophical concept of something that is knowable even though it does not really exist. The word hircocervus first appears in the English language in a medieval manuscript dating from 1398 (now at the Bodleian Library). A hircocervus is depicted in a wall-painting called The Trusty Servant, painted by John Hoskins in 1579 which hangs outside the kitchen of St Mary's College Winchester in Hampshire. The far-famed figure of the Trusty Servant; a man with the ears of an ass on a pig's head, the snout of which is padlocked, while the feet are those of a stag. The right hand is held out and open, the left is loaded with a shovel, pitchfork, broom and gridiron. On his left hip hangs a sword and over his right shoulder peeps a shield. An inscription in Latin elegiacs with an English translation in heroic couplets, probably of the year 1778, gives its meaning: "A trusty servant's picture would you see, This figure well survey, who'ever you be. The porker's snout not nice in diet shows; The padlock shut, no secret he'll disclose; Patient, to angry lords the ass gives ear; Swiftness on errand, the stag's feet declare; Laden his left hand, apt to labour saith; The coat his neatness; the open hand his faith; Girt with his sword, his shield upon his arm, Himself and master he'll protect from harm."

  • Asethetic Movement Nickel Silver Serving Spoons - Dated 1880 England
    A charming pair of AESTHETIC MOVEMENT Serving Spoons made in nickel silver measuring 9 1/2" in length with fabulous intricate detail.The aesthetic movement flourished in Britain in the 1870s and 1880s and was important equally in fine and applied arts. In painting it is exemplified by J.M. Whistler, Albert Moore and certain works by Frederic, Lord Leighton. Japanese art and culture was an important influence, especially on Whistler and aesthetic design. In applied arts it can be seen as part of the revolution in design initiated by William Morris, with the foundation of Morris & Co in 1862. From 1875 the ideals of aestheticism were commercialised by the Liberty store in London, which later also popularised art nouveau. Critic Walter Hamilton was the first writer to identify the movement, publishing The Aesthetic Movement in England in 1882. As well as writing about key figures associated with the movement, he also provides descriptions of contemporary responses to it.

  • MERCURY Roman God Door Knocker - Circa 1890
    A large SOLID BRASS door knocker depicting the head of the Roman God MERCURY with a Ram beneath. The Knocker is 10 inches in length. It is inscribed "Kenrick & sons" underneath. Likely dating is 1880 -1890. No door boss with this but we will supply a small brass knob for this. Mercury is a major god in Roman religion and mythology, being one of the 12 Dii Consentes within the ancient Roman pantheon. He is the god of financial gain, commerce, eloquence, messages, communication (including divination), travelers, boundaries, luck, trickery and thieves; he also serves as the guide of souls to the underworld. He was considered the son of Maia, who was a daughter of the Titan Atlas, and Jupiter in Roman mythology.[citation needed] His name is possibly related to the Latin word merx ("merchandise"; cf. merchant, commerce, etc.), mercari (to trade), and merces (wages). In his earliest forms, he appears to have been related to the Etruscan deity Turms; both gods share characteristics with the Greek god Hermes. He is often depicted holding the caduceus in his left hand. Similar to his Greek equivalent Hermes, he was awarded the caduceus by Apollo who handed him a magic wand, which later turned into the caduceus.

There are old dings and a couple of small oxidation marks but it is still a beautiful old piece as the pictures show. Ignaz and Adolf Bing founded Gebrüder Bing in Nürnberg, Germany, in 1865 as a tin and kitchenware manufacturer. Around 1890 the company began making enameled toys. In 1907 Gebrüder Bing made their first bears, joining the teddy bear revolution at its height. To distinguish their bears they used a metal arrow in the bear's ear, with the initials G.B.N. set in a diamond. From 1905 to 1909 Gebrüder Bing was the "Greatest Toy Producer in the World," employing over 6,000 skilled workers. After Ignaz Bing died in 1918, his son Stephan took the reigns of the company. The next year Gebrüder Bing Nürnberg was renamed Bing-Werke. The company was very successful in the toy industry, but in 1927 the family started to separate themselves from the business.

  • Victorian 'BAT' Cast Iron Door Knocker By Kenrick & Sons England
    A GENUINE Kenrick & Sons Large Cast Iron Door Knocker featuring a BAT with wings spread to the top. This is not a second strike or a copy...it is clearly stamped to the back with the Makers name and the Model Number 422.....it dates to the 1880's.The piece is 9 3/4" in length with a max width of 4 1/2". We sourced this in England a couple of weeks ago. Bats symbolize death and rebirth. Sometimes, they are known as the "Guardian of the Night." It is largely misunderstood and so therefore many of its symbolic meanings are inappropriately fear-based. The bat is a symbol of rebirth and death because it is a creature that lives in the belly of the Mother (Earth). From the womb-like caves it emerges every evening at dusk. And so - from the womb it is reborn every evening. This item is 'as found'...it .has not been cleaned nor tampered with in any way. In both ancient Chinese and Persian mythologies bats symbolized longevity and happiness, however in post Christian Europe the bats habit of flying at night lead to it becoming associated with the devil. Many paintings from western Europe in the middle ages depict the devil with bats wings. Later bats received in worse publicity when they became associated with Count Dracula and vampires. These deeply emotive images have probably contributed to the sinister image that bats still possess in many people's minds, even though we now know they are beneficial members of the environment. In Europe a bat entering a house was a forewarning of a death in the house, whereas in China it was a sign of good fortune. Strangely perhaps, given its poor press in Europe, carrying the dried and powdered heart of a bat in your front pocket was supposed to protect you from bleeding to death, and later to stop bullets. Other strange beliefs in Europe include the idea that carrying a bats eye around with you will allow you to turn invisible, that nailing a dead bat to your door will protect you from demons, that putting a drop of bats blood under a woman's pillow will help her be fruitful and that burning incense over the site of a bat buried at a crossroads would help you acquire a powerful love potion.
