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.

Medicine Hat Potteries, Childs Tea Set ca 1930’s to 50’s

21 Feb

IMG_9024

This set is probably between 60 and 77 years old .  It’s hard to pinpoint a date from the backstamp (of an Indian crouched under a large sombrero) because the company used the same one for its  lifetime.  The company was in operation from 1938 to 1955 after which it was sold to Marwell Construction of Vancouver who manufactured and marketed products under the name of Hycroft.

The teapot and creamer are in perfect condition but the sugar bowl has a hairline crack in it.  The crack is small and hard to find at first glance.  All three pieces have the Medicine Hat Potteries backstamp.

To see this and many other mid century kitchen items, please visit me at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa ON.  Open 7 days a week, all year long, from 10am to 5pm. Plenty of free parking at rear of the building. Over 50 vendors in a heritage 2 storey brick building selling a wide range of antiques and collectibles.

I will also have a booth at the Ottawa Antique & Vintage Market being held on March 21st and 22nd 2015, at the Carleton University Fieldhouse Building.

This set is priced at $75 due to its rarity.

TG Green flameware 2

TG Green flameware

These are rare pieces of T.G. Green & Co. Flamex Ware.  Very difficult to find. This is the culmination of over 10 years of collecting so you can see that they are not in abundance.  The backstamp dates from the 1930’s. There are 2 different styles of custard cups, 1 small bowl and 2 small dessert bowls  These pieces are not for sale at the moment.  I would have a hard time parting with them just yet.

Manfactured by Royal Paragon in the 1930’s, this is a hand painted Bone China teacup and saucer. The background colour is a very pale yellow. The handle is a dark yellow pansy.    Even the saucer is shaped like the petals of a flower, curving slightly upwards.

These are quite collectible because of their flower shaped handles.

Please note this teacup is not available for sale.

Dishes are from Royal Albert Crown China made in England in the Greenwood Tree pattern. The back stamp on these dishes dates them from 1927 to 1935.    Beautiful condition and hardly any wear on the surfaces.  Soft colours and very delicate looking.  There are 4 luncheon size plates and a cream and sugar.

A little before mid century, but I do like these pretty dishes and couldn’t resist them.

Please note these dishes are now SOLD!

 

Vintage Noma Whirl Glo Christmas Tree Light Shades

These are Box #1 and Box #2 in a set of 2 boxes of revolving Christmas tree light shades that were made for Noma Lites Canda Limited, in Japan.  There are 4 different designs in each box.  These are very delicate and it is amazing that they have survived intact all these years. They date back to 1937.

They are papier mache shades with Christmas designs on them, painted by famous American artists. They are placed over a bulb and the heat from the bulb makes them revolve.  Back then, they retailed at approx. 5 cents each and were sold in boxes of 4, like mine, and in boxes of 10.

Fascinating and beautiful to look at.

Please note these items are now SOLD!!!

Clear Glass Dishes with Green Coloured Rings, Depression Glass

13 Feb

I don’t know the name or manufacturer of these clear glass dishes.  I am thinking they may be by Hocking or Anchor Hocking and date to the 30’s.  They do look like Hocking’s Banded Ring a bit but there are no other designs on the glass other that the rings of colour. I am continuing my research and will update if I find out the proper name for them.  If anyone can identify the pattern and maker, please drop me a line.

There are 6 sherbets with underplates and 6 lunch sized plates.

Regardless, they are quite lovely and dainty and will look nice on your table this coming spring.  All are in excellent condition.

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

Priced at $45 for the set.
