Another nice find at a recent auction as part of a lot. This is about 8″ long and is in very brittle condition but still intact. I think I will put it in a frame behind glass to protect it from further deterioration. It will be for sale at my booth eventually.
I picked up these two etched silk portraits at an auction last week. Couldn’t believe no one else was interested in them. I think I scored! They will look great once I remat and frame them.
James Bacon and Sons operated as photographers in England at several different locations; Liverpool, Leeds, Edinburg and Newcastle on Tyne spanning over 70 years. These particular etchings appear to be from the 1920’s from the style of hair and clothing.
Please note that these pictures are now SOLD!!!
Don’t you just love these bold, bright prints! I found all of them at a thrift store and couldn’t resist. My research on this fabric turned up some interesting bits of information on it’s origin and use. Check out this blog at http://yourdecoratinghotline.com/wax-print/ for a bit of background info if you are interested.
These pieces were made in Holland and England according to the information on the edges of the prints.
Please note these items are now SOLD!!!
Made in the German Democratic Republic by Colditz which operated from 1949 to 1990 in Eastern Germany. This partial set was probably made in the late 60’s or early 70’s.
Please note these items are now SOLD!!
Wonderful 1950’s vintage Martini Pitcher made by the West Virginia Glass Co. and called Blendo. Blendo tumblers, pitchers, salad sets, cruets, shakers and bowls were made in many different shades of pastel colours. I found a blog by a Blendo collector you can check out http://thriftinginthelou.blogspot.ca/2010/03/my-west-virginia-glass-blendo.html to see other pieces. The parfait glasses may not be by West Virginia but they certainly are the same vintage and have the frosted colour on the bottom like Blendo Glass.
Note: These items are now SOLD!
T. G. Green Potteries Co. in England manufactured these great vintage casseroles in the early 60’s. The designer was Berit Turnel. In the background are a salad bowl and side plates by Jeannette Glass Co. USA, in the Ultramarine Swirl pattern ca 1930’s. They are on display in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, Almonte ON.
Please note the Ultramarine bowl and plates are SOLD and the T.G. Green Casseroles are SOLD!!
