This is a really nice smaller sized formica topped chrome table, ca. 1950’s.  It has a unique plaid patterned top and bevelled wood sides.  It comes with one extension leaf and could sit 4 to 6 people.  The top is in great condition, nice and shiny and not too much wear.  The chrome is in fairly good condition. Missing a couple of rubber tips for the legs, which are harder to find for the double chrome tubed legs.  We are on the hunt for them.   The chairs were purchased separately at another sale, but they do go well with the table.  They are in fairly decent condition, and the vinyl is in good shape.

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 $265.00 for the set.

Please note this set is now SOLD!!!

Rubberized Spaghetti Swirl Glasses and Pitcher

21 Jan

IMG_0161

I don’t have any idea what the proper name for this pattern is but I have found some on line using the term Spaghetti Swirl.  If anyone out there knows the right name, please feel free to contact me.  They date to the  50’s or 60’s  and the shape of the jug suggests Anchor Hocking or Hazel Atlas but there are no identifying marks on the glass.  Very solid glasses  with a rubberized coating for non slip grip.

Note: These have been SOLD

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!!

La Laurentienne Pottery Onion Soup Bowls

25 Nov

These two covered onion soup bowls were manufactured in the 50’s by La Laurentienne (Laurentian) Pottery in St. Jerome, Quebec.  One still has it’s original tag!  They are in pristine condition, never having been used.  Laurentian Pottery was in business from the early 1930’s to 2005 I believe.  These have a wonderful atomic star burst design in blue and black on a speckled background,  popular in the 50’s, with a unique styled handle on the lid.  Don’t they look great on the retro chrome table!  I found them at a local thrift store this week.

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

Wedgwood of Etruria Barlaston Dishes – Havana

25 Nov

These high quality dishes were made by Wedgwood of Etruria, Barlaston,  England between 1952 and the early 70’s.  They are highly prized by collectors for their beautiful soft colours and pleasing shapes.  The two colours were made by fusing two layers of different coloured clay together and then glazed.   I was fortunate to have found these plates and bowls at a local flea market and they are in beautiful condition.   They are fairly rare to come across in any quantity.  The brown colour is called ‘Havana’, the blue one is called ‘Summer Sky’. The green might be called ‘Wintergreen’ or simply ‘Green’ and the yellow is ‘Harvest Moon’.

Note:  All have been  SOLD!
