Nice clean condition. No big nicks or scratches. Vibrant reddish orange enamel ware tea kettle made in Poland. Enamelware is very versatile. It can be heated in the oven or on the stove top or over an open fire and can be cleaned in the dishwasher without a problem. These pieces are meant to hold both hot and cold liquids. Polish enamelware is among the best of the bunch, especially if made before the 1950’s. You can usually tell if you have an early piece by the weight. The later ones are thinner and more tinny sounding when tapped. There is usually a backstamp indicating Poland as the manufacturer.
To see this item and other fab finds, please visit the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON. Just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa. Open 7 days a week, all year long, 10am to 5pm. Over 50 dealers in a 2 storey heritage building in downtown Almonte.
This tea kettle will be priced at $22.00

This tray is stunning. The floral pattern is beautifully painted with rich colours and gives me such pleasure to look at it. It is made in Russia and could be by an artist from the village of Zhostovo which is world famous for its artists who create these beautiful lacquered hand painted trays. There are a couple of circular marks on it but they aren’t that visible unless you hold the tray up to a light source. There doesn’t appear to be any serious scratches or other damage. I can’t make out the artist’s name but it looks like it starts with a K. Perhaps someone will be kind enough to inform me if they know it. Priced at $45.
Item will be available at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON. Please note, I do not ship items.

Yellow enamelled Fondue Pot designed by Jens Quistguaard for Dansk sometime in the 1960’s. It has a teak handle and is made of cast iron. I don’t think the base is the original although it appears to fit alright. The pot itself is in very nice used condition, with little signs of wear. Made in France. The yellow colour is called ‘Sun Gold’
Will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 MIll Street, Almonte ON.
Priced at $40.
Designed by Grete Kittelsen for Catherineholm Co., often called the Queen of Scandinavian Design, ca. 1960’s. The Catherineholm company takes its name from its hometown in Norway. There is no actual Catherine Holm. This is the lotus pattern in a beautiful sage green stylised leaf pattern on white. This pot is missing its metal carrying handle which would have fit in the groove just under the top of the rim. The pot is in excellent condition. There are no dents or scratches to the enamel that I could see. Inside is clean and shiny.
This will be for sale in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.
Priced at $55.00 Firm

This was a week to find all things red. The red enamel ware sieve was made in Poland and is in perfect condition. So often I find them with sizeable chunks of enamel missing off the edges or on the handles but this one looks brand new. Priced at $ 18
The red melmac butter dish was made by GPL, in Gatineau, Quebec, probably later 50’s or early 60’s. It is in excellent condition. Priced at $ 15.00. If you are interested in all things melmac I found a really great blog. http://retrochalet.blogspot.ca. Check it out!!
The spaghetti lifter was made by Tupperware and is a hard plastic, also in great condition. This may be from the 80’s. Priced at $5
The 5 striped juice glasses go really well with the reds. One has a little chip on the edge so I will only be selling a set of 4, which works well for most people anyway. Priced at $ 12.00 for the set.
All of these will be available in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.
Please note that the glasses and strainer are SOLD!!!
I really like these designs by Georges Briard. This one is called ‘Ambrosia’.
Found this info on the web:
George Briard (1917-2005), an immigrant from the Ukraine, was an award winning designer from the 1950’s through the 1970’s. He used his real name, “Jascha Brojdo”, on his fine art (paintings, sculpture) and the assumed name of “George Briard” for his commercial designs. He is well known for his signature dishes and glassware which were sold at noted department stores, such as Bonwit Teller and Neiman Marcus.
This lovely pot is in very good condition, with minimal wear to the enamelled finish. The gold seems to be all intact on the design and there are no glaring scratches.
Will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON
