Taste Setter Sigma Pierrot Teapot, 1960’s

23 Nov

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

Vintage Lady Utex 1970’s Hippie Paisley Boho Style Coat

16 Oct

paisley coat 1  paisley coat back

paisley coat 3

This was a ‘Had to Have’ item when I came across it in an antique store in a small town recently.  The moment I laid eyes on it, the memories flooded back.  I had one that had a white background and similar paisley decorations in turquoise and reds.  My younger sister, who kindly modelled the coat in the photo, inherited the coat from me back in the 70’s.    We both had  strong reactions and a sense of ‘deja vu’ when we saw the coat and luckily for my sister, it fit her.  I was not so lucky.

The coat is in excellent vintage condition, with very little apparent wear.  The label says: Lady Utex – The Aristocrat of Casual Fashion – Made in Canada. The coat is lined with a gold coloured satin and has a lined attached hood. The fabric has a soft, velvety feel to it.

I will be bringing the coat and some other vintage clothes to the Ottawa Antique Show at Carleton University Fieldhouse on Oct 25th and 26th 2014. Drop by my booth and try it on and be transported back in time.

Please note this coat is now SOLD!!!

Hornsea Linear Red and White Striped Canisters

11 Jun

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.

 

 

Franciscan Ware Floral Pattern, England ca. 1980’s

19 Jan

IMG_6388

IMG_6390

As you can see, I like bold, bright coloured dishes for the most part.   They just look so cheerful.

They are Franciscan Ware made in England.  A very kind friend researched and found out the name of the pattern was Floral.  All Franciscan ware was made in the US until 1984. After that, Franciscan ware production was moved to England. The Franciscan brand became part of a group of companies known as WWRD, an acronym for “Wedgwood Waterford Royal Doulton.”   So these would be dated after 1984.

There are 4 dinner plates, 4 luncheon plates, 4 soup bowls and 4 dessert bowls, one covered sugar and one vegetable bowl.  All the dishes are in excellent condition, with little evidence of usage.  Nice shiny surfaces.  Some of the dishes have slight crazing in the glaze, but really not that noticeable.

These will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte, ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa

Priced at $ 85 for the set.

Please note these dishes are now SOLD!!!

Another Susie Cooper design for Wedgwood in England called Cornpoppy, in the Can Shape, ca. 1971.   The pattern was applied using the ‘covercoat’ technique which was simpler in application than lithographs and gave a more uniform colour.    The colours are crisp and clear and perfect.

Will be available at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON. Open 7 days a week from 10am to 5pm all year long.

Priced as follows:

Sauce Boat: $ 25

Cream and Sugar $ 30 now SOLD!!
