Phaltzgraff Country-Time Serving Bowl by Ben Siebel Design 1952

31 Aug

IMG_9450

IMG_9451

Pretty hard to find these pieces by Phaltzgraff.  The pattern is called Country Time and it was designed by Ben Siebel for Phaltzgraff in 1952.  This one is quite large  and would hold a good sized salad.  The pattern on the sides looks like a stylized flower or vegetable.  The colour is Saffron and it is speckled with a darker colour.  Very mid century modern looking dish. The pattern on the inside appears faded but the glaze is still shiny so I am not sure if the pattern was supposed to be  a light contrast or not. The pattern on other pieces I have seen on ebay appear to be darker.  Could just be from a different lot or could be from use although the inside of the bowl does not appear to be scratched nor showing signs of wear.

Second photo shows size comparison to other items.

Available for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.  Open daily, 10am to 5pm, year round, only closed on Christmas day.  Plenty of free parking behind the store.  Nice old heritage building with 5000 square feet which houses 55 vendors currently.

Priced at $45.00

 

 

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

21 Feb

IMG_9026

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.

Card Suit Schwartz Mustard Glasses, ca 1950’s and 60’s

8 Oct

You can read more about the company that manufactured these iconic glasses at this web site; http://www.thelostcod.com/collections/schwartz-coffee-spices, where I found some interesting information:

IN THE 1950’S SCHWARTZ BEGAN SELLING PREPARED MUSTARD AND PEANUT BUTTER IN REUSABLE GLASSES EMBLAZONED WITH PLAYING CARD SUITS – ACES, HEARTS, CLUBS & SPADES.  MANY KIDS GREW UP WITH THESE AS THE ONLY DRINKING GLASSES IN THEIR HOUSE, BUT TODAY THEY ARE COLLECTOR’S ITEMS.

I certainly remember having these glasses growing up.  Almost everyone played cards during that era, which is why these were so popular.  These are the taller version of the glasses.

They are now much harder to find in good condition. Many people put them in the dishwasher which dulls  the painted design.  All vintage glasses should be handwashed to keep the finishes nice and shiny.

They are priced individually at $ 5 each.

Available at my booth in the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON. Open 7 days a week, 10 to 5 all year round.

Please note: These glasses are now SOLD!!!

15 May

step stool

We just finished reupholstering and cleaning this mid century chrome step stool.  We used a tough red marine vinyl for the seat and back and put new rubber treads on the freshly painted silver steps. We cleaned and polished the chrome so now it looks great and ready to go to my booth in Almonte, at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.

Nice and sturdy, great for the kitchen.

Priced at $65.

Vintage Plastic Egg Cups, Rosti, Egg-Cessory, Mid Century

15 May

IMG_7967

There are quite a few different styles, shapes and sizes of plastic egg cups out there to collect.  Many of the plastic egg cups do not have a maker’s mark on them but some are quite recognizable by their shape.
The dark blue and white ones are Rosti from Denmark, the tall stack of primary coloured ones are Egg-Cessory,  and the others in the photos are unmarked.

I purchased the Egg-Cessory egg cups from a kind friend who agreed to part with them.  They were just so cute, I had to have them!!

They remind me of flying saucers which would fit right in with the atomic era styles of the mid century.

Priced at between $2 and $4 apiece.  They are at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, Almonte ON.

There are 79+ pieces of Johnson Bros. Old Mill patterned dishes for sale. They were manufactured between 1952 and 1977.  These are the brown transferware ones with some dashes of colour.  There are enough to make at least 8 complete place settings of dinner plates, luncheon plates, side plates, dessert bowls, cups and saucers and mugs with some extras.  There are five serving pieces including vegetables bowls, gravy boat, and platters.  There are also 7 chili bowls which I have never even seen before these.

I am selling the whole lot for $ 325.00.  This is a great deal as they would cost far more if sold individually. Replacements.com sells one dinner plate for $20 and one luncheon plate for $25.00.

They are currently for sale in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.

Ploease note: ALL DINNER PLATES, LUNCHEON PLATES, CEREAL AND CHILI BOWLS, DESSERT BOWLS, LARGE VEGETABLE BOWLS ARE SOLD!!!

Large 19″ Mid Century Painted Metal Tray, Kaffee Klatch

13 Feb

IMG_6832

IMG_6833

I have had this tray before but not in this condition. This one is nearly flawless.  I have photographed it with a mug to show the size better. This lovely metal tray measures 19″ across.  Kaffeeklatsch is a German word for coffee and conversation (or gossip) first used in 1888.  Later the ‘s’ was dropped from the word as it became americanized.

I date this tray to late 50’s or early 60’s.  I remember our kitchen of that time period had a black, red and white linoleum floor and my mother had sewn curtains that had the same colours in a diamond pattern.  I still have the curtains tucked away somewhere.

This will be for sale at my booth in the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.

Priced at $20
