Q: I have enclosed a photo of an old phonograph that my mother gave me several years ago. This is a view of the cabinet's exterior with the lid open.

The original red felt ... [full story]

It is difficult to read, but that is what it looks like.   A green pitcher, made by Cornelison Pottery, would probably be worth $125 to $150.  It would be fun ... [full story]
