Shirley Temple Cobalt Blue Jug and Eyewash Cup

27 Nov

 

 

Another estate find.  Shirley Temple cobalt blue creamer dates to the late 30’s .  The cobalt glass eyewash cup is probaby from the same era.  Most baby boomers and their parents would remember Shirley Temple’s movies from that era.

Retro 50’s Turquoise Ceramic Lamp

27 Nov

 

These are some of my finds this week.  The retro turquoise lamp with an asian inspired ceramic base is my favourite one of the bunch.  This was from an auction I attended and much to my surprise I was the only bidder.   It is straight out of the 50’s.  The yellow melmac platter and bowl were made in Buckingham Quebec, Canada;  the turquoise melmac lug bowls are also Canadian made and are ca. 1950’s.  The pink cased glass shaker and turquoise milk glass shaker are probably ca 40’s.  I found some Tupperware coasters in complementary pastel shades and a pink Fiesta Ware Ramekin which I think is from the 80’s.  The glass is by Dominion Glass Co. of  Canada, ca 1950’s.   All the items other than the lamp were found at my local thrift stores and an estate sale this past weekend.

Please note that most of these items are now SOLD!!

Pretty Cabbage Pottery

19 Oct

From my collection, these are some of  the cabbage pieces  that I have picked up over the years.  I especially love my cabbage tea pot which I won at an auction and paid a mere $8 for, which was a steal.  Some pieces were made by Bordallo Pinheiro Pottery Company in Portugal and some by Faiancas Belo in Portugal.  There is a long serving dish by Sarreguemines in France which dates to the early part of the 1900’s.   Most of the pieces would be early 1900’s up to mid century.  The shakers are more recent, probably Japan in the 60’s.

Ritz Blue Tumblers

4 Oct

These were made by Hazel Atlas and were manufactured ca 1938.  They are part of the ‘Sportsman Series’ barware.  The pattern is called simply ‘Ships’.  The colour was dubbed Ritz Blue by Hazel Atlas.  It is hard to find them with the white decoration in good condition.

They are available at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 MIll Street, Almonte ON.  Please note I do not ship.
