Enamelware Stock Pot & Strainer

16 Sep

Nice white, large enamelware stock pot with strainer, and sunflower decal on the sides.

There are no marks on the pot but this could be from Yogoslavia. The pot is lighter weight than older pieces so I’m guessing this would be from the 1980’s era. Pristine inside and out.

Enamelware has been around for a long time and the US started major production in the 1870’s through to the 1930’s. A lot of it was melted down for the war effort as it was considered cheap and plentiful and everyone had a few enamel pots to spare. Now the older pieces are prized for their good craftmanship and design. After the 2nd world war a lot of enamelware came out of Yugoslavia and Poland as well as high end Scandinavian pieces from Denmark and Sweden.

Priced at $45.00 and available only at my booth in the Almonte Antiques & Collectibles Market, Almonte ON.

Anchor Hocking Forest Green Charm and Mushrooms

16 Sep

The square plate is by Anchor Hocking and is dated to the 1950’s. Pattern is called Charm. The green bubble top storage jar was made in Belgium and came in several colours and sizes: emerald green, amber, and aqua that I know of. These date to the 1960’s and still have a contemporary look that would fit in any decor today.

The ceramic mushroom salt and pepper shakers are made in Japan and there is a mushroom spoon rest to match. Most likely from the 1960’s. All are in excellent vintage condition and cute as can be.

Top right is a Pixie or Elf Posie Holder, circa 1950’s in very nice vintage condition, no paint loss.

All the above items are available at my booth at the Almonte Antiques & Collectible Market in Almonte ON, 26 Mill Street, open 7 days a week, 10 to 5, free parking at the rear of the store. Over 40 vendors in a 2 storey heritage building with something for everyone’s taste or collection.

Poole Pottery Twin Tone Dishes

16 Jul

20200626_170043

Poole Pottery

The above are two covered vegetable serving dishes and 4 handled soup bowls or cream soups as some call them.

Poole Pottery was founded in 1873 on Poole Quay in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire England until 1999 when it moved to Sopers Lane.   In 2011 Denby Pottery bought Poole Pottery.  As far as I can tell by my research, the company still manufactures pottery but in a smaller capacity and it is still producing good quality pottery.

Anyone who knows Poole will be able to spot a piece right away and the glazes are beautiful and silky soft to the touch.

Twintone (two coloured tableware) was produced from the 1930s, but production stopped during World War Two.  When they started up again in the late 1940s, they named it Twintone and had about 5 different colour combinations.  In 1950 they dropped some of the old colours and introduced new ones like the one in the photo which is called Red Indian and Magnolia and this combination lasted until 1956.  The colour red is much more glossy than other Twintone colours.  I am aware that the colour name is offensive and I only mention it as you will need to know the correct name for researching this particular combo.

They will be for sale in my booth at the Almonte Antique & Collectibles Market in the near future.  In the meantime I will hold on to them as they are just so beautiful to look at.

NB: These dishes are no longer available.
