My mom called me to come go through some "junk" with her today. We found some real junk and a couple of gems. The junk included show clothes of mine from a long time ago, we're talking size 2t.
The neat stuff we found, 2 antique bits. They were in the bottom of a box that mom had picked up at an auction. The first I know a bit about the maker and did find some similar items that had been sold. (Hoping mom will give in and let me have it) The second looks handmade, no clue about it. I didn't have my camera so the pics are cell quality but thought I'd share anyway.
Here's the first one, a Crockett.
Here's the second. It has Mexican coins at the joint on the shank. No discerning maker's marks anywhere. Pretty sure this one was handmade.
If anyone knows anything about them, please share and I'd love to see other antiques too!
