Anchor Hocking Card Suit Milk Glass Mugs

These mugs were purchased at a little antique store in a small town on one of our jaunts last summer. I put them away for a while and thought I might keep them but alas, I have too much stuff in my basement and I decided to list them on ebay. They sold within minutes for a huge amount of money so I was pretty happy with my decision to part with them.

They are made by Anchor Hocking sometime in the 1970’s and were in excellent clean condition.  What a Fab Find!

Note: These mugs have been SOLD!!

Tulip Themed Collection

These always cheer me up

This is another collection of mine that resides on a corner shelf  in my kitchen.  The Fire King Splash Proof Tulip Mixing Bowls were made by Anchor Hocking around the 50’s.  The shape of the bowls reduces splashes when mixing, hence the term Splash Proof.  The tulip glasses are called ‘Swankyswigs’ and these particular ones were made in the 1950’s. They originally contained Kraft Cheese Spread and they were marketed as a collectable drinking glass. They came in many sizes, colours and patterns.  The milk glass tulip shaker is made by Hocking Glass also ca. 1950’s.   Glass storage container with tulips and red plastic lid manufacturer  is unknown but from the  same era.  My family always laugh when I say this, but tulip themed items are ‘Highly Collectable”.
