Mid Century liquor dispenser caddy with 6 shot glasses. The pump works fine, has a swirled red and white bakelite push knob on the dispenser. The chrome tray which holds the glasses sits over the neck of the decanter and rotates. This originally sat on a chrome undertray with 3 glass inserts for party snacks.
I have seen this item attributed to the Park Sherman Co. of Springfield Illinois US, ca 1940’s and 50’s. The company made several different styles of decanters and pump action dispensers.
Park Sherman was an important Springfield company for several decades ending with the sale of the company to a New Jersey firm in 1960. Sherman operated from the 1930’s through to the 60’s. Best known for their mass-produced smoking accessories, particularly lighters, as well as a multitude of office, novelty, and other items.

Manfactured by Royal Paragon in the 1930’s, this is a hand painted Bone China teacup and saucer. The background colour is a very pale yellow. The handle is a dark yellow pansy. Even the saucer is shaped like the petals of a flower, curving slightly upwards.
These are quite collectible because of their flower shaped handles.
This Art Deco styled vase stands about 6″ tall and is in excellent condition. Dates to the late 1940’s. Manufactured by McCoy in the USA. This vase has a very nice light turquoise colour . McCoy pottery is no longer being made.

I have done some research on this set but have yet to come up with any information. It is quite striking with the art deco pattern and lovely soft glaze. I believe this would be a chocolate pot set or an espresso set. The cups are demi tasse sized and the pot is only about 8″ tall.
There are no makers marks on any of the pieces. Unfortunately, one cup is cracked, one cup has had the handle repaired, and one handle of the sugar bowl has been repaired. Nevertheless, I still think the set makes a good impression.
This set probably dates to the 1930’s. It is foreign made, most like from Japan.
Will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Stree, Almonte Ontario.
Priced at $75 for the set.
These cups and saucers are all by A.B.J. Grafton China Co, made in England in the late 1940’s. This was the end of the Art Deco period. Styles of dishes began to change after WWII. The pattern is called ‘Ashley’.
This art deco print is by Henri G. Reynard and the printing company is “© John Drescher Co. Inc., NY.” ca. 1920’s or 30’s.
Henri G. Reynard was a pseudonym for R. Atkinson Fox.
It measures approximately 12 ” tall and 20 ” wide.
This was the very first picture I picked up at a thrift store around 25 or 30 years ago. I bought it for $2 and it is still in my home. The frame is beautifully carved wood with gilt highlights.
The above were all small items found in two box lots at the same estate sale except for the Roanoid Ashtrays which I highlighted in the previous post. Among the treasures are a watch shaped compact, several lipstick holders, a really cute MOP address holder, a matching tube lighter and liptstick holder with fake gem on the top, an articulated fish key chain, some purse ashtrays and some pill boxes, 2 gold coloured salters, a horn spoon, and a small signed enameled dish. There were also 3 demi tasse cups and saucers all in excellent shape, made in Germany or Bavaria. The previous owner of these items was really into miniatures and I had to stop myself from buying more at the sale as I also love anything in miniature.
