I checked out a cousins new business yesterday. He makes pottery, pots, jugs, face jugs etc.... HEY! His potters wheel does go round and round, you know. He does have that in common with ya'll....LOL

He also has antiques in the store, nice old stuff to primitives and some misc. collectable stuff. Anyway. He had some segmented lamps turnings that were sort of interesting. He had written an estimated date of "from the '40's". He was guessing from the looks of the cords and plugs used on them. They had some age on them but no way of knowing for sure just how old they were.

So, when you turn something from now on, please, at least date it. It'll save me and cousin a whole lot of discussion time.
