Baribo-Maid Maple Salad Bowls

8 Jul

baribocraft bowl set

This salad bowl set was made by Baribeau & Fils Inc  in Montreal Quebec in the 1960’s under the trademark Baribocraft.   Baribocraft was made for the retail market and their other trademark Baribo-Maid was made for the wholesale market.  Baribeau ceased production in the 1970’s.

They used Canadian maple wood and skilled Canadian artisans to produce lasting and beautiful woodenware.  The result is high quality woodenware items that are still sought after today.

During the 1950’s and 1960’s the Danish modern teak look was very popular so Baribocraft stained some of the their maple wood bowls teak in order compete in that market.  Some of their bowls were left in the natural lighter maple wood colour like the set above.

These bowls have been lightly cleaned and sanded and then hand rubbed with a foodsafe beeswax wood finish which brings out the natural colour and highlights of the wood.  Truly beautiful woodenware.

Mid Century Modern Heavy Glass Cande Holders – Trivets

20 Jan

glass candle holders

Two very large and heavy square candle holders.  They measure about 5″ square and could be turned over and used as trivets.  No makers marks or stickers so no idea of the manufacturer. Definitely look mid century in design. Possibly Scandinavian.

I will be bringing these items to the Ottawa Antique and Vintage Market, being held at the Carleton Univeristy Fieldhouse on March 21 and 22nd, 2015.

I also have a booth at 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.

Update: A kind customer at the Antique Show informed me that these were actually trivets/warmers and that they were probably manufactured in a European Country. She remember buying them about 20 years ago.

Please note these items are now SOLD!!!!
