Grindley England, Royal Petal Marlborough Earthenware Dishes, ca. 1954

31 May

IMG_5392

Grindley Manufactured these dishes in 1954, which can be determined from the marks on the bottoms of the dishes.  There are 8 place settings, minus the cups and saucers.  For some reason they were  not with the set when I purchased it.   The place settings consist of dinner plate, lunch plate, side plate, dessert bowl,  and rimmed soup bowl (not shown).  The completer pieces consist of a turkey platter, smaller platter, covered casserole, cream and sugar, and vegetable bowl.  Wonderful condition overall save for a few utensil marks.

Will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antiques Market, 26 Mill St., Almonte, ON.  Price for all $150.oo.

PLEASE NOTE:  These dishes have been  SOLD!!!

Findlay Enamelled Turquoise Cast Iron Pots and Trivets

31 May

findlay metal ware

Findlay Foundry was founded by David Findlay in 1862 in Carleton Place, ON.  It continued until 1974 making cast iron cookware and cooking stoves.  These perfect examples were purchased at an estate sale in Carleton Place from a woman whose uncle worked in the Foundry for years.  They kept much of the cast iron for their family members but agreed to part with these pieces.  Lucky me

The colour is a pale green/turquoise almost like Jadeite.

They will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antiques Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.  Price  $25 for the small frying pan, $40 for the small covered casserole, $15 for each of the trivets.

NOTE: These items are now SOLD!!

Just recently acquired this great vintage 1950’s round pedestal table with Rose patterned  formica table top.  The base is chrome and cast iron.   The top is in pretty good shape although there are a lot of surface scratches, it still looks pretty good. The cast base was cleaned and repainted.  The top was cleaned and polished to bring out the shine.  It measures 30″ wide and would suit a small kitchen or cottage.

Holt Howard Japan, 1950’s Ceramics

The above are all examples of Holt Howard’s kitschy designs ca. 1950’s.  Holt-Howard was created in 1948 by John and Robert Howard and A. Grant Holt.  They made cutesy items for the kitchen and giftware.  They are probably best known for their pixie ware which commands high prices in the collectibles market.

The 1954 ashtray in the shape of a man in a striped shirt allows the smoke to escape through the mouth.  The cat ashtray sports a push down handle which empties the ashes  into the head.  The Rooster jam and jelly jar is one of many dishes that were embellished with roosters by Holt Howard Co.   They ceased all production in 1990.

These items will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market in Almonte Ontario.
