Medicine Hat Potteries, Childs Tea Set ca 1930’s to 50’s

21 Feb



This set is probably between 60 and 77 years old .  It’s hard to pinpoint a date from the backstamp (of an Indian crouched under a large sombrero) because the company used the same one for its  lifetime.  The company was in operation from 1938 to 1955 after which it was sold to Marwell Construction of Vancouver who manufactured and marketed products under the name of Hycroft.

The teapot and creamer are in perfect condition but the sugar bowl has a hairline crack in it.  The crack is small and hard to find at first glance.  All three pieces have the Medicine Hat Potteries backstamp.

To see this and many other mid century kitchen items, please visit me 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, all year long, from 10am to 5pm. Plenty of free parking at rear of the building. Over 50 vendors in a heritage 2 storey brick building selling a wide range of antiques and collectibles.

I will also have a booth at the Ottawa Antique & Vintage Market being held on March 21st and 22nd 2015, at the Carleton University Fieldhouse Building.

This set is priced at $75 due to its rarity.
