The Wingback Chair

It is very difficult to confuse a slipper chair with a wingback chair if you are familiar with antiques.  Aslipper chair has short legs and it usually has no arms; it is normally wooden with an upholstered back and seat.  Although a wingback chair also usually has short legs, the difference is in the comfort.  A wingback chair, sometimes also known as a grandfather chair, normally is very padded and has a higher back and wings flanking the back and rolled padded arms.  This type of chair, because of the comfort level, was usually found in a gentlemanís study or library.

Vintage Toy & Toy Collecting

If a show like Mad Men can stir up sales of Mid Century Modern antiques and collectibles, than what can a show about vintage toys do for this niche?  Probably not a lot since toys are already big business around the world. But that hasnít stopped the Travel Channel which now has a show called Toy Hunter.  In this show, ultimate toy collector and dealer Jordan Hembrough goes coast to coast looking for the most sought after vintage toys.  Star Wars, Transformers, G.I. Joe, Hot Wheels, Superman and other super heroes; toys that were part of our childhood.

The Origins of Christmas Tree Lights

Lighting up a Christmas tree is believed to go back to mid-1600s but it wasnít until the Germans started attaching candles to the tree that it really took off across Europe.  The early 1700s saw European people gluing candles to their Christmas trees with melted wax or by pinning them to the tree.  In the 1890s, the invention of candleholders made it easier to light up the tree and the tradition continued to spread, but only among the well to do; candles were quite expensive at the time.
