Catherineholm of Norway, Lotus Enamel Ware Pot by Grete Kittelsen

6 Mar

IMG_7159

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

Please note this is now SOLD!!

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!!!

 

Georges Briard Enamelled Covered Pot in Ambrosia Pattern

13 Feb

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

Priced at $35.00

Please note this item is now SOLD!!!

Findlay Enamelled Turquoise Cast Iron Pots and Trivets

31 May

findlay metal ware

Findlay Foundry was founded by David Findlay in 1862 in Carleton Place, ON.  It continued until 1974 making cast iron cookware and cooking stoves.  These perfect examples were purchased at an estate sale in Carleton Place from a woman whose uncle worked in the Foundry for years.  They kept much of the cast iron for their family members but agreed to part with these pieces.  Lucky me

The colour is a pale green/turquoise almost like Jadeite.

They will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antiques Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.  Price  $25 for the small frying pan, $40 for the small covered casserole, $15 for each of the trivets.

NOTE: These items are now SOLD!!

Lovely tulip pattern and in great condition too!

This is one of my favourite finds.   Really cute enamelware teapot with tulips all around and a plastic red tulip handle on the lid.  I don’t know the manufacturer of this particular one nor the age but it was too sweet to resist!

Note: This item has been SOLD!!

Polka Dotted Enamelware

26 Sep

I found these two Polka Dotted enamelled pots in a little Antique store while on one of our roadtrips. The store was so jam packed with stuff it was hard to move around in. I loved it!!!! Although I like to keep my booth clean and easily accessible, I love to browse around in over crowded out of the way places. I always think I will find some burried treasure that no one else noticed. Sometimes this strategy works.

These two pots were made in Yugoslavia around the 1950’s when polka dotted kitchen ware was all the rage. They have some enamel loss on the edges but still display well and are quite usable. The markings on the bottom show 2 lion heads facing each other and a number along with the printed word Yugoslavia.

Please note that the pots and most of the items in the background are now SOLD!!!

I still have the punch bowl set.
