The bean pot looking piece has: Coors, Rosebud, USA on the bottom, and is from the '30s. In 1910 Adolph Coors invested in the Herold China and Pottery Factory in Golden, Colorado (same place the beer is produced, and same Coors company). The company has evolved into Coors TEK, a manufacturer of technology that "serves every industry with advanced products." The ash tray is hollow, and it has the signature, Anthony, and 273. USA on the bottom. Come to find out a company called Freeman-McFarlin manufactured these ashtrays during the 50s and 60s. It was bought out in the 80s. So, if you have any "Anthony" ashtrays, keep them.
And last, but not least, is this dresser. I got the boys to put it under the car port for me so I can work on it. Come to find out, under that blonde, 1950 style finish, is solid oak, and it is heavy as lead! The sides of the drawers are oak and dove tailed. More about the dresser when I get done fixing it. Just in case your wondering, the cookbook in the other picture was a gift, and it is written by Joyce Wilde, owner of the store. I even saw her cookbooks in a shop in Illinois! Now it is time to get ready to go to school, and do bulletin boards (and visit). Have a great day!
