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.

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.

Silver Plated German Made Mid Century Candle Holder

23 Nov

IMG_8800

I like the style of this unique candle holder. It has a mark on the inside of one of the legs stating, E.P.N.S. Germany.  My photo does not do it justice.  The silver surface is much more sparkly. I believe this would have been manufactured in the 1960’s or 70’s because of the mid century modern style.

From a slightly different angle, you can see the reflection on the silver surfaces.  Stands approx. 8″ high.

This candle holder can be found at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mills Street, Almonte, ON just 30 minutes west of Ottawa.
