    Other interesting stuff we own

    Thought it might be interesting to see what other curios/interesting items, other members own.
    I think if youíre into watches and collecting, then youíll almost certainly have other collectibles or interesting bits kicking about the house/shed/garage/mancave etc.
    To start off hereís a couple of bits that live with me in my lounge (joys of living alone)
    First up a very cool Russian divers helmet, I believe it dates from the 1970s 80s era, I was told at time of purchase that it was allegedly dredged up by a trawler in the Baltic Sea , although Iíd take that with a pinch of sea salt

    Next up an unusual little collection of Zulu war era items, unfortunately none wouldíve been at the battles, but they all potentially were in Africa at the correct time.
    These comprise of a pair of Zulu hunting spears (I wouldnít want to be stuck anywhere on my body with one), a Belgian made Albini rifle, which were used in the Congo, and a British naval pith helmet, which were commonly stained with tea or mud ,to help dull down the bright white, and hopefully stop you catching something metal in the head.




    Next up another recently acquired piece, a resin and marble dust relief of Alexander the Great. Didnít think Iíd actually like this, but having propped it up against the wall, I now quite like it being sat there.

    Obviously no lounge or living area is complete without a BMX being sat there.
    This PK ripper with obligatory Skyway Tuff wheels, I restored a couple of years ago, purely as is often the case, because I didnít have one as a kid. I do keep thinking I should take it out for a ride around on a sunny day, but have learned that nostalgia is best left as memories to avoid disappointment.

    Teak root carving....it's a single piece of wood. The vision & workmanship blows my mind.

    Last summer I found myself trawling through some online US estate sales, and something odd looking piqued my interest.



    A bit of digging and I found it was a cut away display model of the gyroscopic guidance system from a Thor Ballistic missile, which were deployed in the UK in some of the peak Cold War years (1959-1963). The need wasnít great, but the want was !

    I was lucky enough to win the lot, but unlucky that ITAR regulations prevented me from exporting it from the US to Europe. So I had to sell it on and never got to see it in person. Has to be the oddest and most interesting thing Iíve owned (albeit briefly).

    Having spent a large proportion of my working life as a brewer of beer, when the last brewery I worked at closed I took home an early 20th century brewing thermometer and saccharometer as a reminder of those days.



    Next is an Ascos (oil vessel) that Christies thinks is Etruscan and dates from anything between 600BC and 3,000BC. I have to take it to them in person for a more accurate inspection.



    On the theme of ancient artifacts this is a small Egyptian Ushabti in the form of a funerary servant figure. These were buried with wealthy Egyptians to take care of them in the afterlife, this one dates anywhere from 500BC to 2,000BC.



    Not quite so ancient is this human skull which probably dates from the mid Victorian era. It was originally (after death of course) a medical teaching aid acquired by my dad in the 1960's. We did have the frame it hung from and the rest of the skeleton in the 1960's, but when we moved back from Ireland to England the removal company lost the tea chest that contained them and we were left with only the skull. Most likely it would have been a convict that had been sentenced to death and executed as their bodies were the most likely to be handed over for medical research, but there's a slimmer chance it could have been the victim of a grave robber, we'll never know for sure.

    Some great collections there Gents.

    I love that sort of stuff. So interesting to have on display and better than the awful minimalist culture so many have bought into.
    Cheers,

    Some fabulous pieces being shown. Unlucky that the missile guidance system never made it to the Uk, the amount of work in that teak sculpture is mind blowing 🤯.
    would love to add some ancient civilisation items to my collection one day, itís hard to comprehend how old some of those items are that have survived.

    Interesting is subjective of course, but for those of us who were kids when Pokťmon arrived these may be nostalgic.

    This is an old Japanese katana. I’ve been trying in vain for the last 3 years to find out more but every knowledgeable person I’ve shown it to has a different opinion.

    The shape suggests it could be mid to late 14th century, it’s been shortened a lot which also maybe points that way, grooves of that shape are also only really found in very old blades, but the grain pattern in the steel is typical of 17th century onwards. Maybe it’s a 17th century copy of a 14th century blade, who knows.

    Now that's a fantastic piece of (family) history. Must be quite rare to see those complete.

    Fascinating thread!

    I have this... thing. Inherited from my Grandfather, who worked as a civil servant in various departments.

    I have NO IDEA what it is, or what it does. It's 340mm tall, and each of the sticking out bits swings all the way round.

    Any ideas welcome!!

    Your blade should be signed (mei) on the nakago. I suppose you didnít show it on purpose as I donít believe anyone here could help you with it, at least directly.

    A beautiful piece regardless.

    Yes, that would have been nice. Unfortunately, if this one was signed at one time then it’s long since gone as the blade has been shortened (O suriage) and there is virtually none of the original nakago left. Shortening old koto tachis to make uchigatana was so common that unshortened tachis are extremely rare. A lot of swords lost their signatures due to this, while many were never signed in the first place. The Japanese also had a habit of making copies of blades made by famous old smiths (complete with fake signatures or fake shortening), and some of them were really good at it. This one appears to have been genuinely shortened from a much longer sword. Evaluating Japanese swords is a massive minefield, for every so-called rule there is an equally large range of exceptions.

    Small but quite rare, three 18th century tin ice skaters (yes Iím Dutch). The Parker ink shop display pot is nice as well, after nagging my boss on my first real job in an old bookshop long enough he surprised me by giving it as a goodbye present.

    Likewise. Possibly on one of those auction programs like Bargain Hunt or Antique Road trip, we didnít have those in France so they were seen as a bit of novelty.

    Glad to see itís in good hands. ;)
    Yes, simei was common, either to pay their respects to the original or to deceive.

    Like your figures.

    I like picking up play worn vintage toy figures. Some American Podfoots by Barclays and French Mignot.

    Also tin I guess? Nice, quite sought after by some people.
    I'm told they get valuable depending on the subject they represent. But for me it's more to have some nice stuff to look at between the books.

    When I said I like picking up figures, that was more in the past, probably picked these up 30 years or so ago. These days itís decluttering accumulated stuff.

    I think the American ones are some kind of hollow cast zinc and French a heavier, solid lead and tin alloy. I have a couple of small boxes of flat tin soldiers from French and German makers.

    Like you, they are just a bit of shelf decoration rather than a collection. I think they were collectable and had some value 20, 30, maybe 40 years ago. Unfortunately the gentlemen who were avid collectors are no longer with us. They can be pennies, a couple of quid, £5, £10 and up depending on condition etc. Britains was the big British brand: soldiers, zoo animals, farm animals. I donít think they exist anymore.

    There was a lot of cool stuff in the estate sale. I figured out the owner from the address, and he was a colonel in the USAF, and worked in Operations Crossroads and Sandstone Ė the initial US nuclear testing programs in the Pacific where he remotely operated B-17 drones. There were many factory supplied models of aircraft, missiles, and rockets (which unfortunately all sold strongly), plus the guidance gyro which was hidden in a mixed lot and described as a model of a spark plug :-)

    I actually sold a lot of my old stuff fairly recently but I'll see if I can get some pics of what I have left.

    For now I can show my electric guitars...

    Fender Vintera Stratocaster in Burgundy Mist.




    Fender Classic series '60's Strat in Cerulean blue.




    1989 US Standard Strat I bought new and still have.




    Gibson Les Paul Plus from 2004.




    I had a Classic series '70's Fender Strat too but recently gave it to my Grandson so am feeling a bit bereft so if anyone has any nice Fenders or Gibsons they would like to swap for watches please let me know.
    Cheers,
    Neil.

    The guitar of my dreams. Never developed the skills as I didnít practice so sold my cheap Epiphone Studio LP. Keep telling myself if I bought the real deal I would learn.

    Loved the look of it in my office but was just another thing to dust lol.

    I like your book selection.

    Thanks.

    Bit of an old school Sci-Fi collector, love the things they dreamt up in their stories, some really clever and sometimes funny stuff by the better writers.

    When I was at infants school back in the early 70s, my mum used to buy chocolate bars every Friday for my sister and I.

    50 years later and I still have a lot of the wrappers, which I have dug out of a keepsakes tin in the loft this evening following a search inspired by this thread :-)

    Looking at the two series of Wombles wrappers, inflation was rampant LOL. Price rise from 3p to 5p a bar in the blink of an eye ... at least it was the same size !




    And on the backs :

    The shape suggests it could be mid to late 14th century, itís been shortened a lot which also maybe points that way, grooves of that shape are also only really found in very old blades, but the grain pattern in the steel is typical of 17th century onwards. Maybe itís a 17th century copy of a 14th century blade, who knows.

    Based on what I've seen on Pawn Stars. Makers name is on the steel inside the handle. Remove the handle and see if any information is there
