At first it produced feed grinders, plows and other agricultural products for the farm communities around it. By 1884, water pumps, windmills, iron sections for store fronts and flooring and box coffee mills were added to the line. Its president, e.H. Morgan, decided that they could use the scrap lumber from the box coffee mills to make toy coffee mills and these became the first toys produced by the company. By 1939, they would produce more than 300 toys. in 1885, the company moved its operations to a new section of freeport called the arcade addition. At the same time they incorporated and renamed themselves arcade manufacturing company for their new location. during the decade of the 1920s arcade became completely mechanized. To speed up their output, they developed molding machines, which they also marketed to other manufacturing companies. Toys moved from molding machines to tumblers where rough edges were removed. Then ill-fitting parts were repaired and pieces were plated as required. Next they went to an assembly line where they were riveted and painted either by spraying or dipping. After drying and inspection a decal was applied. Most arcade toys have the name cast in the toy. It was also during this period that they adopted the marketing slogan, âthey look realâ to emphasize the fact that they took the shapes and colors of their toys from real life. after the tremendous success of their first cast iron car, the âyellow cab,â arcade realized the potential of automotive toys. They concentrated in this area and subsequently devloped the most important line of cast iron automotive toys in america. They also produced farm toys, advertising and comic toys, toy banks, trains, dollhouse furnishings and cast iron penny toys using many real objects as models. arcade continued toy production until 1942. The company was sold to rockwell manufacturing of buffalo, new york in 1946. this toy, a six-man fire pumper #6990, measures approximately 13 ¼â long. It is an excellent example of arcadeâs integral casting that includes the firemen, tools and suction hoses. Even its nickel-plated hose reel is locked in place to prevent loss. Built on a 1938 ford truck chassis, this toy is scarce. Its production was short-lived, a victim of hard economic times and arcadeâs decision to concentrate on smaller, light-weight castings and worldâ s fair toys for 1939. This toy shows some restoration and overpainting. âarcade,â â6990â and âmade in u.S.A.â are clearly cast in the inside body of the toy.

Schoenhut Humpty Dumpty Circus http://www.antiques.com/classified/133/Schoenhut-Humpty-Dumpty-Circus Albert schoenhut, a german immigrant, began producing piano toys in philadelphia, pennsylvania in 1872. Thereafter, schoenhut's toy production expanded to include dolls, dollhouses, blocks, and other wooden toys. In 1903, schoenhut purchased the patent for a clown toy that would become one of the most popular american toys of all time. The first humpty dumpty circus consisted of a clown, chair, and ladder. As the popularity of the circus toy increased, the company added new animals, personnel, and accessories. like all the toys the a. Schoenhut company made and sold, the humpty dumpty circus was commercially produced to compete in the marketplace. Its design expressed a unique artistic vision. The style of the whole is unmistakably by the same hand and is easily recognized as having been made by the a. Schoenhut company. While variations occurred over the years â caused by demands dictated by popular taste or economic pressures â its basic style remained unchanged during the thirty-two years the circus was manufactured. during the period when schoenhut company produced its humpty dumpty circus toys, the management continually experimented with and reinvented uses for individual pieces. When popular taste or economic imperatives occasionally required a figure or animal be discontinued, the company dropped them. At other times successful solutions expanded the use of parts. This was why the bandsmen also became the safari hunters in the companyâs âteddyâs adventures in africaâ toy. Boxes too, often functioned as more than mere containers. One clever conversion occurred when they were also used as the bottom of tents. all animals and figures were made in at least two styles, and many in additional ones. The most obvious style changes occurred between the pre- and post 1918 period. Prior to 1918, most animals had glass eyes and hand shaped (tooled) heads. Early personnel from the pre-1918 period had two part heads; the face was made of a composition-type material and glued to a wooden lathe-turned base and neck. Around 1910, some personnel were provided with bisque heads. In 1918, as a consequence of ww i, schoenhut lost their german suppliers of glass eyes and bisque heads. As a result the company began painting the eyes of animals previously made with glass eyes, and initiated the production of the one-part head performers. In the post 1918 period, all animals had hand painted or decaled eyes and molded heads, and all late personnel had one-part molded heads. to help bolster slumping sales, in 1923 the company introduced their reduced size circus. Many, but not all personnel and animals were produced in a reduced size. Despite the success of this new line of circus toys, the company failed to survive the depression and was out of business by 1935. about these toys combination canvas tent and ring personnel, animals and accessories â 32 pieces humpty dumpty circus packing box * schoenhut circus toys are american folk art - hand tooled wood - hand painted * early large menagerie-style tent on a revolving dowel support - tent is a combination circus tent and circus ring * packing box for figures is wooden and unusual green color. - front cover labeled schoenhut humpty dumpty circus - inside cover labeled âteddyâs adventures in africaâ(in 1912 schoenhut stopped producing teddyâs adventures in africa sets in green boxes. It is likely that schoenhut retooled the remaining green boxes for the humpty dumpty circus.) * tent, packing box, animals and circus personnel were made before 1918. Schoenhut lost its german suppliers of glass eyes and bisque heads in 1918 as a result of wwi. - all animals have unbroken, glass eyes - all clowns have early two-part heads and wooden cones under their hats - black dude and hobo have early two-part heads - ring master and lady rider have bisque heads * the rarest figures in this set are the poodle, and the goat

Figural Match Safe http://www.antiques.com/classified/136/Figural-Match-Safe Delaval cream separator patented july 28, 1908 l.T. Savage new york it has been said that the match was one of the greatest inventions for women. In most households it was a woman who was first out of bed, often when it was still dark and cold. The match permitted her instant light for a candle, which could in turn provide ignition for other sources of light or heat. from the time that matches were first sold, in shops or by street vendors, manufacturers put them in thin wood chip or cardboard boxes, much like those still sold today. Although cheap and convenient, they provided little protection from accidental ignition and lacked aesthetic appeal. It was not long before special fancy containers were being produced. Inventive european craftsmen created a wealth of decorative match holders; mass production methods made these affordable to the middle classes. Decorative trends did not catch on in north america until the second half of the 19th century. the development of match holders not only reflects the development of the match, but also the changing art styles of the period between about 1840 and 1930. Their styles also reflect or document social changes and practices, historical events, local and national business interests, and places of popular appeal. match holders known as âmatch safesâ include two containers. The contents of a box of matches are inserted into the bottom container. Used matches are put in upper pocket. this piece is a figural match safe advertising the delaval cream separator company. It consists of a plated and painted miniature cream separator whose primary colors are black and silver. It measures approximately 6 3/8â tall and is classified as in excellent condition, complete with all original parts.

Nantucket Sailmakers Palm http://www.antiques.com/classified/140/Nantucket-Sailmaker---s-Palm Found in a nantucket sail loft this device, a sailmakerâs palm, is used by yachtsmen, dinghy sailors, etc. To make repairs on sails, and sometimes to whip or bind the ends of ropes or sheets as they are more properly known to the initiated. the small device consists of a loop of leather with a hole for the thumb to go through. The widest part of the leather sits across the palm of the hand and incorporates a dimpled metal plate to accommodate the blunt end of a needle like a thimble. sailmaker's needles are necessarily tough and big enough to take the heavy thread - these days synthetic to resist the destructive effects of weather and sea - and the plate, held in place across the palm, is used to force the needle and thread through the tough material of the sail. there are two types: a seaming palm and a roping palm. The main difference is that the roping palm is heavier and has deeper recessed dimples and a tougher leather backing. this palm is for the right hand and has an inside circumference of 11 inches. It was found in a nantucket sail loft. It is undated.

$1000 Absolute Money Certificate -- 1880 Lampoon Of National Greenback-labor Party http://www.antiques.com/classified/1139448/Antique--1000-Absolute-Money-Certificate----1880-Lampoon-of-National-Greenback-Labor-Party- $1000 absolute money certificate -- 1880 lampoon of national greenback-labor party. one of the leading public issues of the immediate post-civil-war period was related to the nationâs currency. the heart of the debate centered on an action the government had taken to fund the union effort in the civil war. Between 1862 and 1865, the government printing presses issued $450 million in greenbacks, paper notes that were not backed by reserves of specie. simply stated, the agrarian and debtor interests wanted to keep the greenbacks in circulation and even urged that more be printed. Such a move would likely generate inflation, which was regarded as a favorable event since it would be easier to pay off debts with âcheapâ money. tensions were heightened during the depression that followed the panic of 1873. Farmers and debtors bore the brunt of the economic distress and issued calls for the printing of additional greenbacks and the unlimited coinage of silver. These calls for action were transformed into a political movement in the mid-1870s and, in 1876, into a political party. The national greenback party took up the greenback refrain and pledged to fight the national banking system created by the national banking act of 1863, the harmonization of the silver dollar and the resumption act of 1875, which mandated that the u.S. Treasury issue specie (coinage or "hard" currency) in exchange for greenback currency upon its presentation for redemption beginning on 1 january 1879, thus returning the nation to the gold standard. together, these measures created an inflexible currency controlled by banks rather than the federal government. Greenbacks contended that such a system favored creditors and industry to the detriment of farmers and laborers. in 1878, a congressional election year, the organization changed its name to the greenback-labor party and supplemented its membership by taking in workers. They received more than one million votes nationwide and elected 14 party members to congress. in 1880 the greenback party offered a presidential candidate and broadened its platform to include support for a graduated income tax, an eight-hour work day and allowing women the right to vote, and proposed that public lands be given to settlers rather than sold to land speculators. However, the party polled only 300,000 votes, a clear demonstration that the greenback issue had passed its prime. The times had changed: resumption had been a success, the depression had ended and the bland-allison act had concentrated attention on the emerging issue of the coinage of silver. despite its lack of success, the party made a last stab at the presidency, nominating benjamin f. Butler in the election of 1884. His showing was dismal and the party disbanded. Its members drifted off to the union labor party and the populist party. the greenback party made an important contribution to american politics by demonstrating the monetary policy could and should be part of the national debate. this certificate for âabsolute moneyâ in the amount of $1,000 was issued from âswindlersville avenue,â washington city on july 24, 1880. It parodies the greenback movement and benjamin f. Butler, who is shown at left cranking out greenbacks from the us mint.

Working Cast Iron Toledo Market Scale Toy Arcade #634 C. 1928 http://www.antiques.com/classified/1142903/Antique-Working-Cast-Iron-Toledo-Market-Scale-Toy-Arcade--634-c--1928 Working cast iron toledo market scale toy arcade #634 c. 1928 in 1868, the novelty iron works was one of the first industrial companies in freeport, illinois. At first it produced feed grinders, plows and other agricultural products for the farm communities around it. By 1884, water pumps, windmills, iron sections for store fronts and flooring and box coffee mills were added to the line. Its president, e.H. Morgan, decided that they could use the scrap lumber from the box coffee mills to make toy coffee mills and these became the first toys produced by the company. By 1939, they would produce more than 300 toys. in 1885, the company moved its operations to a new section of freeport called the arcade addition. At the same time they incorporated and renamed themselves arcade manufacturing company for their new location. during the decade of the 1920s arcade became completely mechanized. To speed up their output, they developed molding machines, which they also marketed to other manufacturing companies. Toys moved from molding machines to tumblers where rough edges were removed. Then ill-fitting parts were repaired and pieces were plated as required. Next they went to an assembly line where they were riveted and painted either by spraying or dipping. After drying and inspection a decal was applied. Most arcade toys have the name cast in the toy. It was also during this period that they adopted the marketing slogan, âthey look realâ to emphasize the fact that they took the shapes and colors of their toys from real life. after the tremendous success of their first cast iron car, the âyellow cab,â arcade realized the potential of automotive toys. They concentrated in this area and subsequently developed the most important line of cast iron automotive toys in america. They also produced farm toys, advertising and comic toys, toy banks, trains, dollhouse furnishings and cast iron penny toys using many real objects as models. arcade continued toy production until 1942. The company was sold to rockwell manufacturing of buffalo, new york in 1946. this toy, arcade #634, is a working cast iron toledo market scale. Its approximate measurements are 5â high by 4â long by 3 ½â wide at its widest. This is a fairly scarce piece and, as you can see from the photos, itâs in very nice condition.

Antique Pearlware Mocha Quart Mug Blue Banded With Black & White Snail Trail Earthworm Pattern http://www.antiques.com/classified/1142975/Antique-Antique-Pearlware-Mocha-Quart-Mug-Blue-Banded-with-Black---White--Snail-Trail-Earthworm-Pattern Antique pearlware mocha quart mug blue banded with black & white snail trail earthworm pattern mocha decorated pottery is a type of dipped ware identified by its âwet-surfaceâ look decorated with crawling worms (âearthwormâ), swirling catsâ eyes, sea life (âseaweedâ), rolling waves, alternating bands of color, trees and cross-hatches and purely random squiggles. mochware pieces were factory-made and lathe-turned. Their signature âwet surfaceâ look was achieved by coating pieces in a runny mixture of clay and water known as âslip,â then applying a tea made of tobacco juice, turpentine, hops, and even urine. The resulting chemical reaction formed dendritic patterns in the glaze. Other designs were painted, scratched or stamped on with fingers, brushes, or other objects, resulting in a multitude of layers and colors. Production may have begun as early as 1792. many people assume that mochaware is named for the palette of colors it uses: browns, creams, grays, blacks, and muted tones of blue, green, pumpkin, and yellow. Instead., it refers to the red sea port of mocha (now in modern day yemen), a city associated in england with the export of dendritic, or moss agates (mocha stone). The stone features natural striations similar to the wareâs seaweed- and tree-like decorations. manufactured by potteries throughout great britain, france, and north america, mocha was the cheapest decorated ware available. Most british production went to export whereas france and north america manufactured for the home markets. Archaeological finds throughout the eastern united states suggest that mocha was used in taverns and homes, from lowly slave quarters to thomas jefferson's monticello and poplar forest. After the mid-19th century, british imports waned, with those potteries still making mocha concentrating on government-stamped capacity-verified measures (jugs and mugs) for use in pubs and markets. North american product was based entirely on yellow or buff-colored bodies banded in black with broad white slip bands on which the dendritic markings appeared. Some british makers used yellow-firing clay, too, but the bulk of the wares were based on white bodies, the earliest being creamware and pearlware, while later, heavier and thicker bodies resembled ironstone, known best to archaeologists simply as "whiteware". because it was used on a daily basis, few examples of original mochaware have survived over the years, making it a rare american collectible. this piece is an english pearlware mocha quart mug ex-collection of william lewan that is decorated in a blue banded with black and white snail trail earthworm pattern. It measures 6â high x 4 ½â in diameter. It has hairline cracks, but is nonetheless an extremely desirable piece.
