Clock-watch[ edit ] The earliest dated watch known once belonged to Philip Melanchthon and is now in the Walters Art Museum , Baltimore The first timepieces to be worn, made in the 16th century beginning in the German cities of Nuremberg and Augsburg , were transitional in size between clocks and watches. Nuremberg clockmaker Peter Henlein or Henle or Hele is often credited as the inventor of the watch. He shapes many-wheeled clocks out of small bits of iron, which run and chime the hours without weights for forty hours, whether carried at the breast or in a handbag However, other German clockmakers were creating miniature timepieces during this period, and there is no evidence Henlein was the first. They were heavy drum-shaped cylindrical brass boxes several inches in diameter, engraved and ornamented. They had only an hour hand. The face was not covered with glass, but usually had a hinged brass cover, often decoratively pierced with grillwork so the time could be read without opening. The movement was made of iron or steel and held together with tapered pins and wedges, until screws began to be used after Many of the movements included striking or alarm mechanisms. They usually had to be wound twice a day.

History[ edit ] A very early hand dimpled soldered cylinder thimble A single steel needle from the time of the Han Dynasty ancient China BC — AD was found in a tomb in Jiangling , and it could conceivably be assumed that thimbles were in use at this time also although no thimble seems to have been discovered with the needle. The earliest known thimble — in the form of a simple ring — dates back to the Han Dynasty ancient China also and was discovered during the Cultural Revolution of the People’s Republic of China PRC in a lesser dignitary’s tomb.
Oddly, neither the Romans nor the Greeks before them appear to have used metal thimbles. It may be that leather or cloth finger guards proved sufficiently robust for their purposes. There are so-called Roman thimbles in museum collections, but the provenance of these metal thimbles is, in fact, not certain, and many have been removed from display.
No well-documented archeological data link metal thimbles to any Roman site. Cast 14th century thimble Although there are isolated examples of thimbles made of precious metals—Elizabeth I is said to have given one of her ladies-in-waiting a thimble set with precious stones—the vast majority of metal thimbles were made of brass. Medieval thimbles were either cast brass or made from hammered sheet. Early centers of thimble production were those places known for brass-working, starting with Nuremberg in the 15th century, and moving to Holland by the 17th.

I have gathered information on Trunks over the last few years and this information is free and for research use only. Trunks date back to pre-medieval times. They were made in many shapes and sizes and from various materials. They were made of various woods and covered with hides such as deer, horse or cowhide. In the s the hide covered trunks continued and became a little more ornamented with handmade brass tacks, forged iron locks and handles and leather trim. In the late s and early s round trunks became popular.
Looking at them from the end they appear round, with a small flat base. They were covered in leather and hide and usually ornamented with brass tacks. They were lined with a printed paper or often old newspapers.
NPS Archeology Program: Archeology for Interpreters
History[ edit ] s— Predecessors and influences[ edit ] Primus, a common influence to nu metal bands, uses elements of diverse genres such as speed metal , thrash metal, punk rock and funk. Bungle ,  Prong ,  Rage Against the Machine ,  and Ministry  all have been highlighted as examples of this. Groove metal and thrash metal bands of the same period such as Machine Head ,  Sepultura ,   Metallica ,   Pantera ,  Slayer ,  and Anthrax  all have been cited as influential to nu metal as well.
For example, Anthrax pioneered the rap metal genre by combining hip hop and rap with heavy metal on their EP I’m the Man ,  which laid groundwork for nu metal’s development. Sharpe-Young wrote that these bands “had chosen to strip metal down to its raw, primal element” and that “neo-metal paved the way for nu-metal”.

Where do you find this? It looks early 20 th C to me. The symbolism is political, and indicative of some of the far right organisations pre ww2. Quite possibly Italian s The helmet is highly stylized and has the look of the type of kitsche item mass produced in Italy during Mussolinis dictatorship. The stars are not anything I’ve seen in anything actually ancient Roman. The axe and rods are of course the fasces, the ancient symbol of the authority of the roman consul of chastisement and death over the people who elected him.
Its where we get the word fascism from. The fasces were used by the Italian fascists in the same way the swastika was used by the Nazis.
Thanks to the “date letter” any piece of British sterling silver can be exactly dated. Old Sheffield Plate and Electroplated silver are not subject to this practice and the regulation issued by the authorities had the main objective of preventing possible frauds by unscrupulous sellers of plated ware. The best-known initiative is the prohibition effective from c. Elkington was forced to change its mark in of stamping plated wares with the “crown”, to avoid misunderstanding with the symbol identifying the Sheffield Assay Office.
The absence of an official dating system makes it difficult to date silver plated wares.

It just goes to show how even two intelligent men can be duped by what is such a common gold scam. This story inspired me to write about several common gold scams that have been around for a while and should be avoided. But, even though they may be well documented, there is a sucker born every minute. It is surprising how the lure of making quick easy money can fool any greedy, well intentioned individual. In the case of Mutombo and Lawal, of course they never got a gram of gold and instead lost millions of dollars.

Artifacts as time markers Pipe stem dating The clay pipe industry expanded rapidly as tobacco smoking gained popularity in both England and America. Historical archeologists excavating English colonial sites often find pieces of white clay smoking pipes on their sites. In the s J. Harrington studied the thousands of pipe stems excavated at Jamestown and other colonial Virginia sites, noticing a definite relationship between the diameter of the pipe stem bore—or hole—and the age of the pipe of which it had been part.
This change in diameter may have occurred because pipe stems became longer through time, requiring a smaller bore.

But the business finds its origin as early as , with the establishment in Meriden of a small plant for the production of pewter or Britannia ware. At a later date, it was the foresight of the Britannia makers which turned into a success the efforts of the Rogers brothers. Joining together of the mechanical genius of the Hartford experimenters and the practical business ability of the Britannia makers constituted the definite beginning of silverware making as a business.
The Rogers brothers had met with success their activity, but were hampered by lack of capital and qualified organization to market their product. In six or seven small Britannia ware plants in the town of Meriden were organized by Horace C. Wilcox into the Meriden Britannia Co supplying Britannia, Albata and German silver ware, both plated and unplated, to many other firms.
An agreement was reached whereby the genius and skill of the Rogers were joined with the initiative and business ability of the Meriden concern, and the latter began the production of goods that were later to be described in the catalogue of the Meriden Britannia Co. The production of the ‘ Rogers Bros’ line continued under the direction of William Rogers and in the plating shop was transferred from New Haven to Meriden and merged with Meriden Britannia Co in

That said, I am posting this on his behalf as he brought an item out today and said “i’ve never been able to figure out what this is” and I said “we’ll figure it out dad” but I have no idea how.
