  1. Those are nice Ed! Cool story to go with them too.

    Had to Google CABOOL to figure out where it is. Seems to be somewhere west of the Mississippi River.

  3. That sounds right. Would it help to say it's south of Houston?

    Pretty good visit to the flea. An old stoneware whiskey jug and an early model Zebco 33.

    I like those old 33s, especially those with the brass gears. Built to run smooth for a long time!

    Yeah. They're pretty solid. I didn't really need another, but the guy only wanted $6. I couldn't pass it up for that cheap. It's in great shape.

  7. Ever seen the early one with the thumb ball clutch instead of the button?

    Like on the 11 and 22? I've seen those, but never used one. I came across an 11 awhile back at an antique store, but I wasn't in the market for it for what they were asking.
     
  9. You push the ball with your thumb, it clicks & disengages the clutch. I have one, maybe two. I also have an early 66 with black metal body before they went plastic. I'm sure I'm remembering correctly that it's a 66 & it was pretty much the same as the 33 at the time but with a black metal body instead of chrome. Same drag/clicker & everything.

  10. I can pretend to be fancy with a buy in of 50-cents for the pair of tumblers.

  11. As cheap as a Dixie Cup but you gotta wash 'em! It only costs a little more to go First Class.

    Found these today. The lamp has a slight pink tint to it so I am guessing 40’s. The shaver is 30’s easy.

    Anchor Hocking prescut old fashioned/rocks glass I nabbed for a quarter. Not as nice a find as Bob's recent crystal score, but a happy one. My grandmother had a cabinet FULL of this stuff that came free in cans of oatmeal way back when.

  15. So did mine. Wish I had it all now. And Pyrex too.

    Check out this ruby flashed EAPG.

    That's amazing!! I've never seen any of it colored.

    And I'm with you on the Pyrex. My girlfriend is always on the lookout for the stuff. A cabinet full of it would be about as good as a cabinet full of gold.

  17. Popular around 1890. I've seen a few that are clear with purple highlights too.

    You may know this but there is something like 8,000 registered EAPG patterns known to have existed.

    I had no idea it was that many, but I certainly don't doubt it.

  19. I'm not a collector of EAPG but there is a registered pattern book that collectors do buy.

    My grandmother had a long Pyrex sheet casserole dish with fancy handles molded off each end that resembled sea shells. Supposedly my grandfather won it shooting rifles at a carnival. One of my female cousins has it now.

    That dish alone is probably worth a fortune, but the story makes it priceless.
