Tulip Themed Collection

These always cheer me up

This is another collection of mine that resides on a corner shelf  in my kitchen.  The Fire King Splash Proof Tulip Mixing Bowls were made by Anchor Hocking around the 50’s.  The shape of the bowls reduces splashes when mixing, hence the term Splash Proof.  The tulip glasses are called ‘Swankyswigs’ and these particular ones were made in the 1950’s. They originally contained Kraft Cheese Spread and they were marketed as a collectable drinking glass. They came in many sizes, colours and patterns.  The milk glass tulip shaker is made by Hocking Glass also ca. 1950’s.   Glass storage container with tulips and red plastic lid manufacturer  is unknown but from the  same era.  My family always laugh when I say this, but tulip themed items are ‘Highly Collectable”.
