Great piece of mid century metal wall art,  given to me as a gift and proudly hangs in my kitchen.  Subtle but charming I think.

Lincoln Beautyware Canister Set

17 Nov

Lincoln Beautryware canisters

Lincoln Beautyware Canisters made in the US ca. 1960’s.  Brushed chrome finish and wood handles.   Remember when every home had a bread box?  I don’t think they are as widely used today as they take up so much room on a counter.   I found this set a local auction and was lucky enough to get them for a good price.  A must have though if you want that retro look in your kitchen.  These are for sale at my booth in Almonte.

Note: This set is now SOLD!!

Sherman Jewelry

10 Nov

Couldn’t believe my luck when I spotted this lot of Sherman Jewelry for a decent price at a recent sale.   My photo does not do these pieces justice.   The sparkle on these beauties is amazing!   Sherman was a Canadian designer of high end costume jewelry and all his pieces were made with the highest quality crystals and rhinestones, and most have rhodium plating on the backs.  The rhodium never tarnishes and they look as fabulous as the day they were made.  These are probably ca 1950’s or 60’s.

Please note these items are now SOLD!!

Hayhoe Flowerdale Teapot Collection

Hayhoe Teapot Collection

Tea anyone?

From my own collection, here are 5 pretty teapots issued by R.B. Hayhoe (Flowerdale) Tea Company out of Toronto and made by Beauce Ceramics  in Quebec ca. late 60’s to mid 70’s.   I also have a cookbook put out by Flowerdale, featuring Gourmet recipes.  I love these little Aladdin type teapots.  I am on the hunt for the green ones and the cream coloured ones.  Very elusive pieces as I have been looking for years now.
