This is a lovely Lazy Susan Relish tray made by Anchor Hocking in the depression era, ca 1930’s.   The glass tray rests on a swivelling glass base which works very smoothly.  Pictured are 5 relish inserts in Ruby Red and also 5 inserts in Forest Green.  Both colours will be inluded with the purchase of this dish so you can switch up the colours.   Perfect  for Christmas. The center dish can also be used as a covered candy dish on its own.

Stunning is either colour as well as functional.  The base turntable piece is very rare to find as it often got separated from the set and misplaced over the years.

The pattern is called Old Cafe. I have only seen this set with the red and green inserts.

This beautiful serving ensemble will be available for sale in my booth at the Ottawa Antique and Vintage Market being held at the Carleton University Fieldhouse located on Bronson Avenue in Ottawa Ontario on Nov. 4th and 5th, 2017.  Please check out their facebook site @ https://www.facebook.com/OttawaAntiqueAndVintageMarket/. And their website page: http://www.ottawaantiqueandvintagemarket.ca/

The set is priced at $95.00.

Cathrineholm Lotus Pot Norway

17 Oct

This colourful enamel ware pot with the Lotus pattern on it is in very good condition, only showing minimal wear.  Grete Prytz Kittlesen  was the woman who designed the line of enamelware  and the pattern was designed by Arne Clausen in the 1960’s for Cathrineholm of Norway.  These are now very collectible and much sought after for both practical and esthetic purposes.  Grouped together in all the colours available, these make a wonderful display.

This item will be available only at the Ottawa Antique and Vintage Market November 4th and 5th, 2017 where I will have a large booth.  I also have a set of 6 of the smallest bowls made by Cathrineholm in the green and white Lotus pattern. The Antique show will be held at the Carleton University Fieldhouse on Bronson Ave. in Ottawa, Ont.

1950’s Bib Apron, Yellow Roses

31 Jul

20170727_124537Lovely yellow roses pattern on this vintage 1950’s bib apron.  Cute ruffled pocket on right side.  In very good vintage condition. Background is black and white bows.

Growing up during the 50’s and 60’s era, almost every mother I knew wore an apron.    My mother had her everyday aprons which were sturdy cotton and usually in a lovely cheerful pattern.  The frillier half aprons in fabulous gauzy chiffons and light weight patterned cottons, were reserved for serving Sunday dinner.   I still have my mothers full bib apron which shows a lot of wear and I cherish it.  It brings back memories of her great cooking.

Over the next few weeks I will be posting photos of vintage clothing that will be available in my booth at the next Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show at the Carleton Fieldhouse on Nov. 12th 2017.

Please note this item is now SOLD!!

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.
