One of our readers posted this on Facebook: "I wondered if you could value the 3D cardboard model of the Queen's Coronation below? It was found by my boyfriend when he was renovating a house and also had some 1957 newspaper clippings regarding the Coronation with it, so believe it was made at that time. He has tried to look for something similar on the internet without any luck so we thought the right collector may find it valuable. It is missing 1 small piece which is the back, left hand side of the railings but other than that it is in excellent condition. Look forward to your responses. Jane E., Bolton, UK"

Harry J is still looking for a Homer Laughlin wash basin to match other pieces he has. Can you help?
I have been trying to locate a Homer Laughlin Wash Basin, Pattern 2366, Victoria/Violets Pattern. It has purple violets with gold flowers and rim. It is supposed to be Dutch Shape in toilet ware. I have the rest of the set from my Grandmother, and it is still almost as good new. I would really like to find the Wash Basin to complete the set. I have almost exhausted my searching ability. Someone has to have one somewhere. I know it is old; close to 1890 as far as my research has got me. Thanks, Harry J

10. A vintage recipe request from a reader:
There are a few recipes that are still needed. Can anyone help?
1. "I had--and lost--a recipe a friend gave me in the early '70s. She called it Chicken and Pilaf or Chicken and Rice Pilaf. She got the recipe from her mother who lived in the San Diego area. She said she thought her mom got the recipe from a magazine. I remember a lot, but not enough. You sautéed rice and broken vermicelli briefly; I seem to recall seasonings added to that sauté. The slightly browned rice and vermicelli then went into a casserole dish and topped with raw chicken pieces (I used beasts). The recipe called for cream of mushroom soup and (maybe) cream of chicken soup or cream of celery soup. Some of the soup was poured over the ingredients in the casserole which was then baked. The rest of the soup was cooked on stovetop with seasonings and a bit of sherry. The stovetop sauce was served on the side. The sauce was brownish, but I can't remember what gave it that deeper color. I hope one of your readers can supply the recipe. Thanks, all. Susan O."
2. "Back in the 70's I remember my mom baking a Bundt Cake that was dark chocolate with a "tunnel" of white coconut in the middle. this was so good! I have not seen this type of cake mix in the stores for ages. Does anyone know if they're still available? or does anyone have a similar scratch recipe I could try? Thank you for helping. Laurie R from Michigan"
3. "Carrots, cauliflower, maybe potatoes? Maybe peas? Breaded topping ? Joan T"
As with collectibles, people also have very strong feelings about foods from their past. Sometimes these special recipes get lost. This section is to help people who are looking for lost recipes from their past. If you submit a request, please include the geographical region where you tasted the recipe.
If you have a vintage recipe request send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we might just publish it here.
