In communist Russia of the 1950s, members of a provocative subculture put their own original twist on street style.Labeled “Stilyaga” or “Stilyagi” (plural) by disapproving outsiders – a name that literally translates to stylehunter – a group of dandy youngsters dressed up in colorful American-inspired get ups to meet on Leningrad and Moscow's main streets, which they personally referred to as “Broadway.”Stilyagi were a stylish bunch, unafraid to make a bold fashion statement. They drew heavily on Western and American culture for inspiration, which translated into a preference for very particular fashion items.Boys could be found wearing zoot suits or ...

1932FordModelB_01_1000
It's not hard to see how this 1932 Ford Model B woodie wagon for sale on Hemmings.com remained unrestored all these years: That wood looks to be in great shape and at the same time has that aged and timeworn look that you just don't get from a restoration. Sure, it might need a few things here and there – maybe some floorboards, for instance – but the rest looks to remain in great original shape. From the seller's description: One of 1400 produced that year. A “Survivor” car with 61,000 miles that has been maintained for constant use and not ...

The 1808 Capped Bust Quarter Eagle graded PCGS MS 65 thundered to $2,350,000 on May 19 in New York.
I have been involved in the numismatic field for more than four decades. In that time, I've had the privilege to catalog common coins and rarities, analyze the U.S. coin market via public and private sales, and maintain one of the most respected price guides and newsletters for U.S. coins. In the course of a year, hundreds of millions of dollars' worth of collector coins hit the auction blocks via live sale and Internet-only venues. Since the advent of third-party independent grading nearly 30 years ago, today's dealers, astute collectors and the novice hobbyist can all take advantage of population reports ...

Anonymous, 1778 Coiffure de l'indépendance ou Le triomphe de la liberté
By Hunter Oatman-StanfordFast fashion might seem like a modern invention, but in the turbulent world of 18th-century France, when Marie Antoinette was calling the shots, fashion moved at light speed: In an era when several artisans would be called upon to labor over a single garment, styles shifted by the hour, rendering fashion magazines, which were printed every 10 days, outdated before their ink was even dry. “Fashion itself went out of fashion. Nobody wanted to look like they were trying too hard.” Not unlike today, the streets of Paris in the 18th century were filled with people wearing flashy outfits referencing ...

Van Briggle Mountain Crag Brown
Below is a guest post from noted Van Briggle author and collector Kathy Honea Described in Van Briggle early literature as a glaze containing the browns and greens found in a mountain crag, this glaze consists of a rich honey-brown with over spray of a medium-bright green. Although certainly numerous shades of brown and green glazes were produced within the first decade of Van Briggle pottery production, this particular combination of these specific colors was prevalent in the 1920s until the mid-1930s period. Historically, the story has been repeated that the formulas for these colors were lost in the flood of 1935; ...
