What to keep?

I have a contact at the local landfill and every now and then I get an accoustic.sometimes I even get a usuable case.

Has any one heard of the following:
Stella; ARCIIKraft; Pirles; Zen-On; also Suzuki (this one is due for a Pete Townsend performance), and a Sears.
By deduction? they appear to be 60's or early 70's.

is there a site to check them out. are they only decoration?
any comments would be appreciated. am not set up for pictures yet.
cheers

I was given a new search engine to check out. It's called metacrawler.com for anyone who was not aware of this link it uses yahoo, google, msn and some other search engine.

All I could find so far on the Pirles is that they were involved with various student grade stringed instruments (ukes, bangoes, guitars) in the 50's - 60's.

For my Stella, it was made by Oscar Schmidt (manuf. since the late 1800's), and their guitars were popular with blues players.My Stella is a 3/4 size. (guestimated to be 60's)Interestingly the Oscar Schmidt site is matched into the Washburn guitar site.

Still no luck on the ArcIIKraft.
