& Descriptions In antique
collecting we have continually witnessed the overriding
importance of the role played by quality and condition in relation to
the often misused concept of rarity in determining the value of antiques
or vintage collectibles and their overall enjoyment in a collection.
In other words, CONDITION, CONDITION, CONDITION is of the utmost importance.
our goal is to bring you only the best antiques in terms
of quality and condition that are for sale, and to help you build a
collection that you can be proud of. Accurate descriptions are
essential to this process.
describing our antique merchandise and assigning condition values to
it, we attempt to adhere to The Fine Tool Journal's Condition Chart,
copyrighted by Clarence Blanchard. (see bottom of page) We apply this rating system's
spirit and basic criteria to all of our merchandise that we sell, not
just tools. In other words, when we call something excellent,
it really is excellent. Or when we say something was made by Lietz for
example, you can be assured that it was in fact made by them, and not
some knockoff, fake or otherwise misrepresented. Our photos are
never meant to deceive, over-embellish, or hide flaws, and if you need
more photos or better details on a particular item, just ask.

We offer a rental or special purchase program for the entertainment
and movie industry to rent and /or buy select items form our stock of antiques and antique

inventory stock have been used as props and displayed prominently in
several TV shows and movies as well as featured in numerous printed
articles and stories about specific categories of antiques and collecting.
Movie studios and TV production companies now have a place to turn to
when rarer or more unusual pieces and not readily available hard-to-find
specialty objects are required for special situations or upcoming events.
We have many unusual antiques available that are not typically offered
by the usual rental venues that service the entertainment industry.
The items available to rent range from historically significant examples
of early and unique antique sewing machines and tools, to a selection
of Patent Models and salesman samples, to varied scientific devices
and surveying instruments that can be used to make a scene more authentic
or truly realistic.
In addition to the items found in the different categories in the
left hand column we have access to and also offer a locating service
for other hard to find objects from a network of associates and dealers
who also specialize in hard to find and rare antiques.

for your next project.

merchandise that we offer for sale many pieces could easily fall
into more than one category or by a name other than you were looking
for. If you can not
find the specific item you are looking for under a particular category
it very well could be listed on another page, or it may still be sitting
on my shelf waiting for your inquiry. Please go to this page where
there is a sitewide Search Feature.

can't decide, or don't know what to buy that special other?
