My brother brought this from China.
I think it is a 2nd world war nurses box.
Anyone know anything about them??

And he brought this cast iron jet.
It is very crudely made, and I think old,
but not sure how old. Maybe 40 years.

This is the back of a chair I took apart.
Thought it would make a cute shelf for the garden,
but have not put it together yet.
Have a garage full of those projects. =/

And here is just a little pile of loot for the other day.
an old box, (love boxes)
two rusty garden tools, a pair of old scissors,
4 old books, and, you may have to click to see it,
a leather marble bag, about 45 years old.

Great treasures. I think you are right about the plane my brother had one like that in the late sixties :0)

Love your treasures, that box is great and the chair back would make a great shelf for anywhere. Don't we get excited about finding wonderful treasures.
Have a happy day!

Love the chair back! Again, I wish I lived closer! Clocks and wooden boxes are a weakness of mine too. What is it that draws us?
