Taste Setter Sigma Pierrot Teapot, 1960’s

IMG_8792

Unique teapot from Tastesetter by Sigma,  with a Pierrot clown reclining on the top, forming the handle and lid. The teapot was made in Japan and imported by Sigma which was a division of Rockville International operating in Garden City N.Y in the late 1960’s and 70’s.  Sigma was only around for about 10 years so these whimisical items are hard to find and thus very collectible.  This piece probably dates to the early 1970’s.

The condition is excellent, no nicks or cracks or other damage noted.

You can find this item and other treasures at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON, just west of Ottawa, ON.

Open 7 days a week, from 10am to 5pm, all year round.

Priced at $45.00

Thermos Brand Domed Metal Lunch Box and Thermos

11 Jun

IMG_8001

The lunch box and thermos was a staple for working men throughout the1900’s and this particular model dates from the 50’s to the 60’s. This is the Thermos Brand, made in USA.  You can read all about how people started to use lunch boxes on the Wikipedia site http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunch_box.   It makes for very interesting reading.

The thermos pictured was not original to this lunch box but it is the model that went with this particular lunch box at the time.  The lunch box has a few dings and obvious wear. The thermos is also quite well used, the plastic lid slightly faded and the red plastic rim quite discoloured.  Still, they make an interesting and fun display.

For sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.

Priced at $15 for the pair.  A great deal!!

Please note: These items are now SOLD!!

Hornsea Linear Red and White Striped Canisters

11 Jun

IMG_8159

IMG_8161

I think these pretty red and white striped canisters were made in the late 70’s or early 80’s.  The pattern is called Linear. They were made by Hornsea Co. and located in Hornsea  (the town of Hornsea is in the East Riding of Yorkshire England). The company was in production from 1949 until 2000 when it went in to receivership.   In 1967 the factory started to produce full ranges of tableware, the first being the John Clappison-designed Heirloom, followed by his Saffron and Bronte patterns. The 1960’s and 70’s they were in their heyday of production.  Tastes changed in the early 80’s and profits plummeted.

Tucked in between the canisters is an Androck syrup dispenser with red plastic handle, dating to the 60’s.

Hornsea is widely collected and is durable and beautiful still today.  These canisters are in excellent used condition, the lids still fitting snugly.

These canisters will be for sale shortly in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.  The market is open 7 days a weeks, all year long.  Over 50 different vendors in a two storey heritage building.

Priced at $ 35 for the pair.
