Anchor Hocking Forest Green Charm and Mushrooms

16 Sep

The square plate is by Anchor Hocking and is dated to the 1950’s. Pattern is called Charm. The green bubble top storage jar was made in Belgium and came in several colours and sizes: emerald green, amber, and aqua that I know of. These date to the 1960’s and still have a contemporary look that would fit in any decor today.

The ceramic mushroom salt and pepper shakers are made in Japan and there is a mushroom spoon rest to match. Most likely from the 1960’s. All are in excellent vintage condition and cute as can be.

Top right is a Pixie or Elf Posie Holder, circa 1950’s in very nice vintage condition, no paint loss.

All the above items are available at my booth at the Almonte Antiques & Collectible Market in Almonte ON, 26 Mill Street, open 7 days a week, 10 to 5, free parking at the rear of the store. Over 40 vendors in a 2 storey heritage building with something for everyone’s taste or collection.

PLEASE NOTE: Mushroom shakers and spoon rest, Green Charm Plate are SOLD!!

Poole Pottery Twin Tone Dishes

16 Jul

20200626_170043

Poole Pottery

The above are two covered vegetable serving dishes and 4 handled soup bowls or cream soups as some call them.

Poole Pottery was founded in 1873 on Poole Quay in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire England until 1999 when it moved to Sopers Lane.   In 2011 Denby Pottery bought Poole Pottery.  As far as I can tell by my research, the company still manufactures pottery but in a smaller capacity and it is still producing good quality pottery.

Anyone who knows Poole will be able to spot a piece right away and the glazes are beautiful and silky soft to the touch.

Twintone (two coloured tableware) was produced from the 1930s, but production stopped during World War Two.  When they started up again in the late 1940s, they named it Twintone and had about 5 different colour combinations.  In 1950 they dropped some of the old colours and introduced new ones like the one in the photo which is called Red Indian and Magnolia and this combination lasted until 1956.  The colour red is much more glossy than other Twintone colours.  I am aware that the colour name is offensive and I only mention it as you will need to know the correct name for researching this particular combo.

They will be for sale in my booth at the Almonte Antique & Collectibles Market in the near future.  In the meantime I will hold on to them as they are just so beautiful to look at.

NB: These dishes are no longer available.

Federal Glass Co. Card Suit Mugs

28 Oct

20171025_113050

These card suit mugs were manufactured by the Federal Glass Co. sometime in the 1950’s or early 60’s.  This pattern is very popular even today and mugs in this great condition are getting harder to find on the secondary market. Federal Glass ceased production in the 1970’s.  You can identify a Federal Glass piece by the embossed F in a shield on the bottom of the pieces.

These will be available only at my booth at the Ottawa Antique and Vintage Market being held at the Carleton University Fieldhouse on November 4th and 5th, 2017.   Please visit their website and facebook pages for more information: @http://www.ottawaantiqueandvintagemarket.ca/

Fire King Kitchen Aids Splash Bowl Set

31 Jul

20170709_202310

These  Fire King bowls are in mint condition and are quite hard to find in a complete set.  Surfaces appear unscratched and in shiny condition.  Wonderful graphics of kitchen items.   They are the splash bowls, so named because the wider top reduced the amount of splashing when mixing up liquids in them.   These date to the 1950’s.

This set of 3 bowls will be available for the next Ottawa Antique and Vintage Market at the Carleton University Field House this fall on November 4th and 5th, 2017.  I will bring some of my best and hard to find Pyrex and Fire King pieces.  These pieces will only be available at the show.

Please note this set of bowls is SOLD!!

Anchor Hocking Chip and Dip Bowls, Black and Gold Leaves

2 Dec

chip and dip set

My photo does not do this bowl set justice. The gold accents make it look very festive against the black hand painted leaves.  I believe these sets were made by Anchor Hocking although there are no markings on them.  I have several mugs by Anchor Hocking with very similar patterns of leaves with the gold trim so I am deducing that they are from the same company. These bowls were produced in the 1950’s to 1960’s when chip and dip sets were so very popular.  These sets came with leaves painted in turquoise, brown, yellow and probably other colours as well. This is first black set I have come across.

Potato chips were first invented in the 1850’s but the chip and dip sets weren’t on the market until the 1950’s when buffet style of serving food became “the” word in entertaining at home.

The set will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa ON.  Open 7 days a week, from 10am to 5pm with plenty of free parking at the rear of the building. Over 50 vendors in a 2 storey brick heritage building offer a huge variety of antiques and collectibles to suit every taste.

Priced at $ 25.00 for the set.

Please note this set is now SOLD!!!!

Holt Howard Japan 1959 Christmas Angel Shakers

24 Nov

holt howard angel shakers

IMG_9585

Christmas angel salt and pepper shakers from Holt Howard, ca 1959. These shakers have their original stickers on the bottoms and the date is clearly marked.  They do not appear to have been used. The trim on the bottom of the dresses and around the heads “referred to as ‘spaghetti trim'” is in good condition.

They will be for sale in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.  Almonte is just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa, ON.  The market has 55 different antique vendors and it is open all year round, every day from 10am to 5pm.

Priced at $25 for the pair.

The following is from the Kovel site: https://www.kovels.com/?sortby=Angel&option=com_datalists&view=category&catid=392. They have a list of values for Holt Howard items.

Holt-Howard was an importer that started working in New York City in 1949 and moved to Stamford, Connecticut, in 1955. John and Robert Howard and Grant Holt started Holt-Howard, whose first products were Christmas items made and sold in the United States. The company sold many types of table accessories, such as condiment jars, decanters, spoon holders, and saltshakers. The figures shown on some of its pieces had a cartoon-like quality. The company was bought out by General Housewares Corporation in 1969. Holt-Howard pieces are often marked with the name and the year or HH and the year stamped in black. The HH mark was used until 1974. There was also a black and silver label. Production of Holt-Howard ceased in 1990. Similar pieces are being made today by Grant Holt, one of the founders, and are marked GHA.

Please note these shakers have been SOLD!!
