Anchor Hocking Chip and Dip Bowls, Black and Gold Leaves

2 Dec

chip and dip set

My photo does not do this bowl set justice. The gold accents make it look very festive against the black hand painted leaves.  I believe these sets were made by Anchor Hocking although there are no markings on them.  I have several mugs by Anchor Hocking with very similar patterns of leaves with the gold trim so I am deducing that they are from the same company. These bowls were produced in the 1950’s to 1960’s when chip and dip sets were so very popular.  These sets came with leaves painted in turquoise, brown, yellow and probably other colours as well. This is first black set I have come across.

Potato chips were first invented in the 1850’s but the chip and dip sets weren’t on the market until the 1950’s when buffet style of serving food became “the” word in entertaining at home.

The set will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa ON.  Open 7 days a week, from 10am to 5pm with plenty of free parking at the rear of the building. Over 50 vendors in a 2 storey brick heritage building offer a huge variety of antiques and collectibles to suit every taste.

Priced at $ 25.00 for the set.

Please note this set is now SOLD!!!!

    Hello
    Is this Anchor Hocking Chip and Dip set still for sale. Do you ship to Edmonton?

      the chip and dip set is still available. I am very busy over the next couple of weeks and would not be able to ship until after the week of April 10th. I will have to box it up and figure out the cost for shipping to Edmonton for you. If you are still interested in a few weeks, let me know. Annette
