Oil Paintings, Big Eyed Waifs, by Pac, 1965

24 Nov

big eyed paintings

Two very nice examples of the big eyed children pictures that were popular in the 1960’s.  These oil paintings are signed Pac and dated ’65.  I could not find out any information on the artist.  The eyes aren’t as exagerated as in the artist Margaret Keane’s famous big eyed children paintings but the style is similar.

I found a site that listed quite a few ‘big eyed children’ painters.  Interesting to see the different styles.

Priced at $95 for the pair.

PLEASE NOTE THESE PAINTING ARE NOW SOLD!!!

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!!
