It is difficult to tell very much about your chest as the pictures are dark, and perhaps the sun is reflecting, so even the 'color' is not distinguishable.
I have managed to see the overall look of the front, and I did find some similar/identical chests for sale and sold.
The price on these items does not truly reflect value as a final value will depend on the overall condition as well as where the chest is located.
Location is important as shipping would be very expensive and sellers usually state 'local pick up only'.

You can check out the links below, as the listings will provide information about the chest and provide good examples of the type of pictures needed to sell an item.

Sold 2017: $55

Sold for $550 beautiful condition
www.chairish.com/.../vintage-lane-queen-anne-mahogany...

This one is asking $1,200 - not sold

When you list for sale you should start with a higher price, consider offers and lower the price if necessary.

Looks like a massage piece of furniture.
From what I can see of this desk, it does not appear to be in the best condition and since you cannot show the top, which is most important, it will be very difficult for someone to help you.
Also, I believe that even in Belgium you will only be able to find buyers in your area, due to the high cost of shipping.

You have a lot of pictures but it's difficult to put them in the correct order to really know what/where you're looking.
Also, the most important pictures are very dark which hides the features.
You also do not provide measurements, which in this case are probably necessary.
I see that you are in Belgium, so any information on value in the US would not be useful for your area.
It seems that I really cannot help with an ID, but I will try to suggest some sources for you to try.

You can try asking your question on these sites and maybe someone will try to help.

Cleaning The Back of The Refrigerator?

February 4, 20230 found this helpful

Hello. I tried to look for the article but I think the person who left the previous comment is on the right track. Make sure your fridge is unplugged before you try anything. Maybe even clean out the fridge to make sure that anything that can be spoiled is removed and in a ice chest. Then you can remove the panel at the front of the fridge and just use a vacuum hose to gently vacuum the coils. After that is completed you can just put the front pannel back on and turn the fridge back on.

If you can't be on your knees for that long, I would recommend getting a stool. You would need to move the fridge to get to the power cable, they aren't too heavy, but you might want a dolly of some sort to help easily move it without putting too much weight on you. Hope this helps.

Or if you are feeling like you still can't do it on your own I would look into hiring someone to help. Like www.missionviejohousecleaningservices.../

I do not have this TF article you refer to, but I'm 88 years old and I clean the condenser coils on the back of both my refrigerators every 6-8 months.
One is an older model and the other is a double door, but both units have wheels and can usually be pulled away from the wall quite easily.

I have learned several things over the years that may help you keep safe and avoid a messy cleanup.
Always start your project by having all of your tools in one place, ready to be used. Also, have several large rags or old towels handy, just in case they're needed.
Safety: always unplug the appliance before doing anything else. Some plugs will be behind the refrigerator, so you'll have to pull this away from the wall to get to the plug.

However, you can remove the bottom panel to clean under the refrigerator without unplugging the unit. This space needs vacuuming/cleaning (as well as the removable front cover). This job can be difficult if you have difficulty getting down on your knees, so some people might need help with this task.

Remember to check your refrigerator to make sure there are no open containers or anything that might fall over and make a mess when the unit is moved.

Check some of the YouTube videos that show how to pull the unit away from the wall. Do this moving very slowly and if your unit has an ice dispenser, be sure to not pull your unit out too far and accidentally pull the water hose loose.

I have some links listed that demonstrate how to clean the back condenser coils.

I use the shoe organizers for many things as well. Because I tend to purchase less expensive ones, one way I try to keep them from being overstuffed or poked with sharp objects is to cut the bottoms of plastic bottles (shampoo usually because they are oval shaped) and place them in the pockets. If bottles are small enough, sometimes 2 will fit in a pocket to organize different items.

Here is the short version, quoted from the site.

"Washing soda or soda ash is the common name for sodium carbonate, this naturally occurring mineral carries the formula Na2CO3. Washing soda itself is extremely alkaline with a pH level of 11.

Borax on the other hand has a slightly different chemical composition of sodium tetraborate or Na2B4O7. Like washing soda, borax is also quite alkaline, though not quite to the same level as the other substance."

I use the low carbon railroad iron that I find mostly for making bladed weapons. It takes heat, and reshapes and tempers well. Whets easily, and holds a nice soft edge. ... I collect anything that they loose, spikes, spike-plates, connector clips, nuts and bolts, and even rare partial lengths of track old and new.

Fixing a Straw Hat?


Gold Feedback Medal for All Time! 949 Feedbacks
February 2, 20230 found this helpful

I'm really sorry for your loss, but after a closer look at your brother's hat, I do not believe it can be repaired.
Real straw hats are similar to caning a chair, it is woven from a beginning point and goes around the hat. There appears to be too many broken (missing) pieces in numerous places that may be impossible to repair.
I would suggest you do a search for local furniture repair shops and maybe ask if they do chair caning or perhaps know someone who does. An experienced caning person can tell you if it can be repaired.

I apologize for being negative about this, but if I were in this situation, I would not do anything to this hat. It seems to me that just seeing this hat, just the way it is, would instantly bring back wonderful memories of your brother.
I think it would be nice to have it enclosed in a glass box frame where it could be displayed or even hung on a wall.

Does anyone even remember your brother wearing the hat when it was new? Hasn't it been similar to this in all his later years?
Doesn't it make you instantly think of your brother enjoying life while wearing this hat?
Sorry, if I am saying too much, but this hat, just as it is, looks like it is full of memories.

Keep in mind that most of these dolls were mass-produced, so this fact usually places them in a low price bracket and since the doll market has been flooded for several years, sales are very slow.

First, be SURE the outlet you are plugging into is working. Check it by plugging in something else, like a lamp, to make sure the outlet is good. If it is a ground fault outlet, make sure it hasn't been tripped. If it has been, reset the switch. If the outlet is good, make sure the wire of the typewriter hasn't been severely crimped and broken the wires inside. Look it over for sharp bends, cuts, or obvious bare wire. Also look at the plug end to make sure the wires or metal plug blades haven't been damaged or pulled out of the plug itself. If there IS damage to the plug or cord, you can either order a new cord, or have an electrician put a new plug or cord on it. It could also be that the power switch is bad. Also, make sure your typewriter doesn't have a fuse. That would be another thing for an electrician to check and replace for you. Good luck getting it fixed.

January 30, 20231 found this helpful

I cannot see the markings on the neck but it appears you may have the correct brand name.
I'm not familiar with this brand but from research online it appears these dolls are from the early 80s and are dressed in older-style clothes.
The value of the dolls seems to go from lows to highs and mainly according to condition.
Really nice dolls with maybe original box and papers may be asking $100 or more but dolls similar to yours may only be in the $30-$40.
However, dolls of all brands are usually a slow selling item; sometimes sales may take months/years to sell.

You can check some of these links to see if the dolls have similar features: eyes, hands, feet, material and markings.

Replacement Controller for a Protex Warmth Heated Mattress Pad?

I agree ! Dont purchase these Protex mattress pads. There are much better ones out there that will last longer and the controller sits on your night stand! These controllers are ridiculous! They hang beside the bed because the control cord to the pad is too short for a 15 fitted sheet! Stupid design. Someone thinking.

HI.
Must love dogs, I had this type dog mix. Must say I loved him very much. He had lots of life and needed more acrage, farm to roam.
He was a Hudini, get out of any setting. Tore down doors, fencing, fences had to be doubled [ redundant]. Hard to handle. Aggressive to animals. Black tongue. Strong chest.

New dog owners need to learn of this breed first. Like a mustang.
Good luck.

First you need to know that I do not have the boxes they came in. I have approximately 100 or more Snowbabies and it got to be too much to keep the boxes. They are displayed in curio cabinets. If you are still interested it might be simpler if you let me know which ones you are looking for.

Restoring Old Cross Stitch Patterns?

January 27, 20230 found this helpful

You really need to consult a professional restoration company, there's no way around it. Contact your nearest Art institution and get a recommendation from them for someone in your area that can take a look at it for you. At that time, most dyes came from nature, onion skins, cherry juice, and so on. Using anything made for today's fabrics and dyes isn't going to work, not even sure that Castile soap would work (and I use that on everything!). I'd hate for you to lose such a precious momento of a young girls hard work! Preserve this for the next 100 years! Good luck!

Fixing a Half Stitch on a Counted Cross Stitch Project?

January 27, 20230 found this helpful

Dimensions and Bucilla kits are notorious for using wonky threads that knot up at the slightest breeze. Here's something to try to help make your threads less "knotty", take a bar of Ivory or Dove soap and once you've separated the right amount of threads from the skein, take them and run each thread up and down the soap from end to end. You're not trying to cut the bar of soap in half, you just want to tame the fibers by coating them with the soap, sort of like taming down the frizz in your hair in the winter by coating a comb with conditioner. It sounds crazy but it works! You'll have far fewer knots, you'll notice that your needle goes through the hole better because you aren't dragging the knotty thread through it, and then having to stop and undo the knots. Also, slow down as you pull the needle through your fabric, this is supposed to be a relaxing hobby, not a race. ;-)

Uses for Mesh Onion Bags

January 27, 20230 found this helpful

I've saved 3lb. onion bags since the '80s! I save up enough, then lie them flat on my wood cutting board and then, with a straight rule, make diagonal 1" cuts with a fisker rotary cutter (don't cut all the way to the edge! Stop at 1" from the edge and you'll get a continuous "yarn", just like making your own bias tape).

Then I ball up the "yarn", connecting each new bag of "yarn" with a simple Russian loop. When I have about four to five bags balled together, then I grab my J hook and whip up a round scrubbie. I like mine bigger than most, and I usually stuff a whole uncut bag inside (fold it loosely into a square, it'll puff out the middle and give you a good grip). Once you've closed the edges, voila! A good tough scrubbie that will take a good beating!

I also poke my dirty scrubbies in the prongs of the upper rack of the dishwasher to remove the nasty stuff and freshen it up a bit. They come out of the dishwasher better than the ones made out of netting, I think.

Hope this helps you!
