Wow! I was really surprised by a fast warm welcome. Since I posted my small collection a few people have commented on one particular item I have. I wanted to show some better pictures of it and also let you know it is embossed on bottom rim "Oakman MFG Company Boston" on the skirt "Jumbo" and "patent Jun 17 1890 Aug 19 1890" It also has some almost white swirl in the base. Hope you enjoy the picture.
