A Celebration of Freedom❤️
On June 19,1865
(“Juneteenth”...short for June Nineteenth) The freed people took to the streets in celebration as
Federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas to take control of the state and ensure that all those enslaved be freed.
The troops’ arrival came a full two and a half years after Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. “All persons held as slaves within the rebellious states, are and henceforward shall be freed” Abraham Lincoln

This world lost one of the kindest people I have ever met.....
Joseph Paytas.
He had a love, knowledge and appreciation for all things antique and vintage. A hugely respected appraiser, he began his career in a time when his brilliance was derived solely from the pure passion he carried for the care and preservation of history’s treasures.
But more important than his wisdom, was his heart. He never gave up on people, always tried to see the best in humanity and would literally give away the shirt off his back.
He was my “partner in crime” and will be missed more than words can say. You are free my precious friend. I love you and
will hear your laugh forever. ♥️

This is a 1914 Ideal Fireless Cooker that I found at a thrift store. I think it may have been passed by due to its size and weight. I was not intimidated, I am my daddy's daughter!
Fireless cookery emerged around the turn of the 20th century. Judging from the numerous manufacturers and frequent adds, this was more than a "flash in the pan" fad.
It was a simple concept. Food was placed in a specially made kettle and with minimal liquid, brought to a boil and placed in a well insulated container (usually a wood crate) not to be opened until the liquid finished cooking the food.
A few of the benefits from this cooking method were to keep down the heat in the house, contain odors (such as cabbage) and save on fuel. The "modern women" could place the breakfast cereal in the pot and by morning it was ready.
The cookware was not only marketed towards homemakers, it was also geared towards the fisherman, pilots, and other journeymen to ensure they could receive a hot meal while traveling.
Some Ideal models were made with a special feature ( such as this one) it has a heavy plate of soapstone on the bottom which held even more heat. Early accounts tell of crude home-made versions originating in Norway then spreading to other parts of Europe before being introduced to the U.S. The first documents of a commercially used cooker were at the Paris Exposition in 1867, but the first adds did not appear until the 1890s.
It is said that this premiss led to the slow cooker and eventually, the Crock-Pot.
I was a bit surprised to learn that these "Fireless Cookers" are quite sought after today by collectors as well as people in search of a piece of history or nostalgia.

This brave young man is my great, great uncle Pepe Mancillas from Loredo Texas. One of two brothers and eight sisters, he was lost at sea during World War I.
Known as "The Great War", WWI began on July 28,1914. It's inception, in Europe, because of the assassination of Archduke (and heir to the throne) Franz Ferdinand of Austria.
One of the largest wars in history, more than 70 million military personnel worldwide were mobilized including 60 million Europeans. Of these, an unfathomable 9 million died as well as 7 million civilians.
On November 4, 1918, the Austro-Hungarian Empire agreed to an Armistice ending the war in victory for the allies one week later. By that time, the German, Russian, and Austro- Hungarian Empires had ceased to exist.
During the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, the "Big Four" (Britain, France,Italy and The United States) imposed their terms in a series of treaties and the "League Of Nations" was formed with hopes of preventing any such conflict from happening again. Unfortunately, it is believed that the feeling of humiliation by the German people and economic depression contributed to Nazism which eventually led to World War II......."Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for another"

With the local landfill almost certain to be the next stop for this delightful piece of history, I am so pleased to have rescued this first edition (copyright 1926) illustrated Winnie the Pooh book. It is amazing to know the historical origin of tales translated in nearly every language and a character beloved by millions around the globe.
During the First World War, troops being transported from Winnipeg Canada to Europe made a stop in White Water Ontario. Lieutenant Harry Colebourn bought (for the amount of $20) a tiny, orphaned bear from a hunter who had killed it's mother. He became their mascot and traveled alongside the unit into Britain.
The brigade posted to the battlefields of France where now Captain Colebourn loaned Winnie to the London Zoo where he lived and became one its most popular attractions until 1934.
Winnie was also very popular with "Christopher Robin" son of author A.A. Milne. Young Christopher was very taken with the bear and often spent time in the cage with it, even calling his teddy bear Winnie the Pooh ( the teddy bear's original name was Edmond Bear as can be seen on the first page introduction in this book.
A.A. Milne began writing a series of books about the bear, his son Christopher, and their friends in the hundred acre wood. The characters Eeyor, Piglet, Tiger, Kanga and Roo were based on stuffed animals belonging to his son while Rabbit, owl and a swan named "pooh", were based on animals that lived in the surrounding area of Milne's country home "Cotchford Farm" in Ashdown Forest outside Sussex England. This is the area on which the "100 acre wood" was based.
The books had been a favorite of Walt Disney's daughters and inspired him to bring Pooh to film in 1966, cementing the popularity of this lovable bear.
In this edition, illustrator Hellen Page brings these characters to life for the first time. It would be another twenty years before artist Ernest H. Shepard would give them the familiar look recognized today.

I found this stunning copper and iron coffee pot circa mid 1800's. Manufactured copper from the Stora Kopparburgs Bergslags AB, (The Copper Mountain Mining Company) of Sweden. With its genesis over 700 years ago, and claiming to be the worlds oldest joint- stock company, this is one of the more fascinating histories.
Stora was said to be Europe's largest copper producer and Sweden's first and for a considerable time, only major enterprise of international importance.
Peasant farmers began mining the copper mountain near Falun Sweden around the year 1000!
The first documentation of the mine appears in a letter from 1288 giving the Bishop of Vasteras a 1/8 share of the mine in exchange for landholdings. The mine was controlled by Swedish nobles and German merchants who were selling copper in the European market. The excavators were supervised by Royal bailiff after King Magnus.
Over the next few centuries production grew until the 15 century when 750 tons were being exported making this Sweden's prime source of income at 60% of the gross national product.
The late 1800s saw the decline of copper output in Central Europe due too the discovery of gold and silver mines.
Stora underwent numerous transformations in the last century. They began producing pig iron, bar iron and purchased forest tracts to supply their iron furnaces. The ownership of this land paved the path for its modern profile becoming one of the largest wood product companies.
In 1885 they acquired a sawmill and soon after, a giant paper mill for news-print. As they entered 1915, the foundation was laid for modern Stora Kopparburg. Through many evolutions, by 1976 the company was mainly a pulp and paper company and over the next several decades they acquired many companies leading up to their purchase in 1986 of PAPYRUS making them a dominant force in pulp, paper and forest products.

I discovered this amazing Griswold cast iron lamb cake mold ( circa 1930) several years ago at a tag sale. It had been boxed and set aside for pick up. I had never seen one quite like it and was thrilled!
The Griswold company was founded in 1865 in Erie Pennsylvania by Matthew Griswold and Seldon Brothers. What began as a small door hinge company, evolved into one of the worlds most respected manufacturers of cast iron. In 1883, they began making tobacco cutters and by 1884, they patented and manufactured the first wheeled spittoon. Over the next 98 years the company acquired many patents and added products such as kettles, Dutch ovens, roasters, pots, pans waffle irons and of course the amazing cast iron molds.
Due to the quality of their cake molds, they are highly sought after not only by collectors, but for decorative purposes.
(An interesting side note.....
Mr Griswold was honored for his efforts in the development of downtown Erie with the naming of "Griswold Plaza". He also was twice elected as a Republican to Congress!)

In Poland, a Lamb bearing a cross-emblazoned flag represents Christ resurrected and is the typical Polish Easter symbol. Called " Baranek Wielkanocny", it is usually butter hand shaped into a lamb, but it also adorns many other items such as candy, cards and this delightful cake made in the Griswold mold. Though I was a bit intimidated to try and recreate this tradition, I believe it was not only a success but a pleasure to take a step back into a time when tradition flourished💛

I believe this lovely piece of "Trench Art" to be my very first rescue.
In the garage with my daddy, I could not have been more than 7 or 8 years old, when I spotted the large brass vase. I loved it instantly. Little was known of its history other than it had been in his family for as long as he could remember.
Trench art is any decorative item made by soldiers, prisoners of war or civilians where the manufacturer is directly linked to a conflict. These items offer us an insight to the emotions felt at the time by their creator.
Not limited to World Wars, the history of Trench Art spans from Napoleonic wars to present day. Common articles were used such as wood and bone until 1857 when cannon balls were replaced by brass shell casings. This provided our brave men with a vast supply of canvas for their art.
This practice flourished in World War I ( also known as The War For Civilization) when it evolved into a stagnant form of trench warfare after the initial German invasion into Belgium in 1914.
Creations varied from jewelry, vases and lamps to shells actually engraved with details of battles. Though each item is a treasured piece of history, my personal favorites are the ones lovingly hammered with names, initials, dates and hearts such as the smaller shell casing that my son Anthony discovered with his (I'd like to think inherited) keen eye.😉

How privileged I was to prepare this wonderful Victorian horsehair stuffed chair for rescue!
Even in the time of Ancient Egyptians ( who used horsehair stuffed cushions and fine fabrics to drape their gilded thrones) furniture has been made for style and comfort. The name "Upholstery" originated from the Middle English word "upholder" which referred to the tradesman who held up his goods.
Upholstery's earliest roots began with Europe's upper class and in the 1500s Italy established itself to be the hub for fine textiles.
By the beginning of the 16th century, chairs were being padded with sawdust, grass, feathers, deer, goat and curly horsehair which is what I discovered in this lovely piece of history.

After much love and care.....
This magnificent silver plated copper candelabra (circa late 1890s) is by Elkington and Company. Brothers George and Henry of Birmingham England called "the inventors of silver plating" began their research in times of the industrial revolution. By the 1830s they patented their processes and in 1840 their technique was perfected.
In 1868 Queen Victoria permitted the Elkingtons to copy much of the Royal plate for the process of art. They received many awards including the highest, the "Legion d'Honnuer of the French Republic."
Elkington and Company were also the suppliers of flatware to the luxury dining sections of the U.S.S. Titanic and other ships of the White Star Line Fleet. You will also find Elkington Silver on display in the Royal Yacht Britannia's banquet room having been used by countless guests who spent time on the Yacht up to the time it was decommissioned in the late 1990s.

This fantastic rescue from a local thrift store is a wicker, wood-wheeled baby/ doll carriage, circa 1890s-1920s and made by Southbend Toy Company in Indiana. The founders Frederick H.Badet, a woodworker, and John W. Teel began their humble shop of 15 square feet in 1874 producing only croquet sets.
In 1888 they moved to 1012 High street where they remained for the next 85 years. Just a few blocks away, a small business owned by two brothers named "Studebaker". This became a partnership of sorts when the brothers made a deal with Southbend to build youth size farm wagons.
The company introduced the "Willow" carriage in 1895. These were hand woven on the factory premises. They soon became the nations leading manufacturer of the carriages and many other items for the family ranging from wicker furniture to hobby horses.
During the 1940s the company converted to help produce items to aid in the war effort such as tent poles and Navy security products. After the war production resumed and in 1960 Southbend Toy Company became owned by Playskool manufacturing of Chicago which then led to Milton Bradley joining the two marking the consolidation of the three most respected toy companies in the industry.
By the 1980s,the company suffered from cheaper toys made overseas and this forced them into lower producing plants.
