Hycroft Calico Dishes, Medicine Hat Pottery, Alberta Canada

24 Nov

hycroft dishes

Beautiful plaid patterned dished by Hycroft, out of Medicine Hat Potteries in Alberta.  The pattern is called Calico.  The dishes came in the above colours as well as in yellow.  I would date the dishes to the latter half of the 1950’s or early 60’s.  It was only after 1955 that the name Hycroft was used on the dishes by Medicine Hat Pottery.

The dishes are individually priced. If you have any questions or wish to purchase any of them, please contact me at afacette@gmail.com.  I have other pieces available as well.

In the photo there are five cups and saucers, three side plates, creamer and covered sugar.

Cup and saucer $10 each set

Side plate $5 each

Creamer $15

Covered Sugar $20

Please note these dishes are now SOLD!!

 

 

 

Winfield Ware Bird of Paradise Mid Century Dishes in Yellow

11 Mar

IMG_9062

These dishes are a truly rare find.  Pictured here are some of the ones I found recently, mostly in this beautiful shade of yellow.  The backstamps on the undersides indicate they were made of porcelain, in the US, by Winfield China.  I would date these to the late 40’s or early 50’s.   The pattern on the floral ones is called Bird of Paradise. I have not been able to determine the pattern name of the plain yellow dishes.  There are about a dozen small dessert sized bowls, 8 individual ashtrays, 9 small side plates, 2 rectangular serving dishes, 2 sets of shakers, 2 creamers, 1  covered sugar, 1 gravy boat, 1 large casserole, 1 smaller casserole (not pictured), 1 divided serving bowl, 6 cups and saucers and 1 large platter.  The smaller casserole dish has a chip on the inside rim which is hidden by the lid.  Two of the side plates have hairline cracks.  All the other dishes appear to be in excellent condition, showing little wear.

I am still researching these dishes for values and will list the prices at a later date.  Once I have them priced, they will be available at my booth in the Almonte Antique Market. If you are interested in any of these pieces, please contact me for further information. I am willing to sell individual pieces as this is not a complete set and there are no dinner plates.

To see more mid century dishes, please visit my booth at the Almonte Antique Market in Almonte ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa ON.  Open 7 days a week, from 10am to 5pm, all year long.

These are rare pieces of T.G. Green & Co. Flamex Ware.  Very difficult to find.

There are 2 different styles of custard cups, 1 small bowl and 2 small dessert bowls  These pieces are not for sale at the moment.  I would have a hard time parting with them just yet.

Dorchester Melmac Dishes in Orange and Floral Pattern 1960’s

7 Jul

Dorchester melmac

This partial dish set was manufactured by Dorchester Dinnerware who bought their plastic mold powders from American Cyanamid Co. Only companies that used Cyanamid plastic could name their wares Melmac. By the fifties there were over a hundred companies throughout the states (and a few in Canada) that bought from Cyanamid.  I don’t know the actual date of the dishes, but the colours suggest the sixties rather than the fifties.  The plates have been used but still have lots of life in them.  The cups and bowls are in really nice clean condition.

Priced at  $45 for the set.

These will be availabe at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 MIll Street, Almonte Ont.

Please note these dishes are now SOLD!!!
