Cathrineholm Lotus Pot Norway

17 Oct

This colourful enamel ware pot with the Lotus pattern on it is in very good condition, only showing minimal wear.  Grete Prytz Kittlesen  was the woman who designed the line of enamelware  and the pattern was designed by Arne Clausen in the 1960’s for Cathrineholm of Norway.  These are now very collectible and much sought after for both practical and esthetic purposes.  Grouped together in all the colours available, these make a wonderful display.

This item will be available only at the Ottawa Antique and Vintage Market November 4th and 5th, 2017 where I will have a large booth.  I also have a set of 6 of the smallest bowls made by Cathrineholm in the green and white Lotus pattern. The Antique show will be held at the Carleton University Fieldhouse on Bronson Ave. in Ottawa, Ont.

Red Enamel Ware Tea Kettle, Made in Poland

27 Dec


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

Please note this item is now SOLD!!!


Russian Hand Painted Lacquered Metal Tray

23 Sep

russian tray with knife russian tray signature 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.

This item is now SOLD!!

Made in France. The yellow colour is called ‘Sun Gold’
