In between the gambling and vintage licentiousness I thought of you Mom and as a token of my great esteem I got you this.
It was 1906 and cut glass with etched red (ruby flash) parts was all the craze. And it was cheap and I knew that you mom, being frugal and all, would appreciate that I didn’t buy Marvin Gardens for you.
This antique glass is about 4 inches tall and it is etched “For Mother – 1906 – Atlantic City.”

You never know what you might get when old friends from out-of-town drop in.
Thank goodness that even after that stint in the nut house they haven’t changed much and are still wearing a squirrel mask in public.
This antique mirror appears to have a walnut frame and stand. It is in good condition except for some repaired damaged to the decorative fretwork at the top. The last owner used the mirror as a wall piece with the top at the bottom, which isn’t a bad alternate use.
It is 32 inches tall in the stand and 21 inches wide.

So You’ve Just Had A Baby” Post Partum Exercises record set. Like mom doesn’t have enough to contend with . . .
Originally released in 1941.
“SO YOU’VE JUST HAD A BABY! AND YOU’RE WORRIED ABOUT YOUR FIGURE? Walter Goodwin, director of the famous Goodwin Gymnasium, comes to your aid with a POSTPARTUM ALBUM! It’s a musically accompanied record of the same exercise routines given in his New York gymnasium . . . a complete series of six exercises . . . A HALF DOZEN “MUSTS” FOR YOUNG MOTHERS WHO WOULD ACQUIRE PERFECT FIGURE ALIGNMENT -PROPERLY- QUICKLY !”
Two 78 rpm albums in very good condition with awesome jacket. Perfect for tormenting someone else’s mom. Your mom is going to have some pointed words if you’re a bad enough kid to bring this around (and no matter how old you are you’re going to bed without dinner, so there).

After all we put you through you’ll need a cup of tea to calm your nerves. Or perhaps more than that. Just for you we have this giant tea pot. Fill it with something good Mom, because we know you’ll need it.
Approximately 14 inches tall this big tea pot holds about 3 1/2 quarts of mother’s little helper.
Warm or cold.

Model 4C introduced in 1964. Comes with the original 4 quart glass bowl and single multi-purpose beater. This is more of a light use mixer and would not be ideal for dough or cement. Motor runs well and with the right care the 4C wont be konking out on ya for a long while, at which point it can be used as a boat anchor.
Available at the Estate Store Tualatin

So here it is, the night of the big dinner and you’ve only got spaghetti and five nuts. How to display them to best advantage without running afoul of public exposure laws?
These little nut dishes ought to do the trick.
Each one is about 2 3/4 inches long and they were probably made in Japan in the post war era, although they are unmarked.
UPDATE: So I was digging around in the back today and found a sixth one. Voila, the set grows.

There have been two responses to this work: Creepy! or Cool!
It is signed IY on the front, and Ian on the back. I’m presuming that Ian was the artist who painted it. Approximately 8 inches by 10 inches and in decent condition.
I’d be tempted to put it in the back of the refrigerator as a shock tactic against late night snacking but maybe you have a guest room that needs some sprucing up.
11 inches by 14 inches.
