And I also picked .....10Kplus

The Tin Mans Head

I think it might be copper, still has some oil residue inside

This is from the rigging of a Clidesdale team. It seems to be
plated with brass {just a guess}
 After I polish it, I should be able to know for sure
If I can stop the wood crumbling
I will use it for a banner display or picture hanger.
I am open to hearing anyones ideas on how to do that?

This piece has been laying outside in a heap with an old sleigh type base {no wheels just runnners}
It would have been winter transportation

AND the Cookie Jar!!!!!
I cannot even tell you how many batches of cookies
were stored in this Green clay jar.
If anyone is a collector, I would love to hear any
information you might have about this type of jar.
It is about a foot high and has USA stamp on
the underneath
Please leave a comment so I know you were here
and for the whole month of October
I will collect the comments and draw for a RAK
to celebrate 10,000 plus hits on this blog
See here to read more about that

Such cool stuff honestly! If history could talk....wouldn't that be awesome, the stories these items could tell? Thank you for sharing all this, I'm so interested and intrigued all at the same time!
