Art Deco Style Ceramic Coffee or Chocolate Pot Set

25 Feb

art deco teapot

I have done some research on this set but have yet to come up with any information.  It is quite striking with the art deco pattern and lovely soft glaze.   I believe this would be a chocolate pot set or an espresso set.  The cups are demi tasse sized and the pot is only about 8″ tall.

There are no makers marks on any of the pieces. Unfortunately, one cup is cracked, one cup has had the handle repaired, and one handle of the sugar bowl has been repaired.   Nevertheless, I still think the set makes a good impression.

This set probably dates to the 1930’s.  It is foreign made, most like from Japan.

Will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Stree, Almonte Ontario.

Priced at $75 for the set.

Grafton China Co. Art Deco Tea Cups

25 Jan

art deco tea cups

These cups and saucers are all by A.B.J. Grafton China Co, made in England in the late 1940’s.  This was the end of the Art Deco period.  Styles of dishes began to change after WWII.  The pattern is called ‘Ashley’.

Reynard Print – Love’s Echo

25 Jan

Henri G. Reynard print

This  art deco print is by Henri G. Reynard and the printing company is “© John Drescher Co. Inc., NY.” ca. 1920’s or 30’s.

Henri G. Reynard was a pseudonym for R. Atkinson Fox.

It measures approximately 12 ” tall and 20 ” wide.

This was the very first picture I picked up at a thrift store  around 25 or 30 years ago.  I bought it for $2 and it is still in my home.  The frame is beautifully carved wood with gilt highlights.

Antique Steel Cut Beaded Purses

11 Jan

beaded purses

I came across these beautiful antique purses at a recent sale and snapped them up.  The silver one is steel cut beads. They all date from late 1800’s to early 1900’s.  I believe this was the art nouveau period.  The floral one is tiny glass beads and the gold one is steel cut beads.  All are in very good condition.  They are for sale in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market in Almonte ON.

beaded purse rose with strap

 

This one is missing part of the strap that inserts through holes in the top of the bag.  It is beautifully detailed and much more impressive in real life.

Please note that the one with the roses and the gold coloured one are now SOLD!!

The above were all small items found in two  box lots at the same estate sale except for the Roanoid Ashtrays which I IMG_3343highlighted in the previous post.   Among the treasures are  a watch shaped compact, several lipstick holders, a really cute MOP address holder, a matching tube lighter and liptstick holder with fake gem on the top, an articulated fish key chain,  some purse ashtrays and some pill boxes, 2 gold coloured salters, a horn spoon,  and a small  signed enameled dish.   There were also 3 demi tasse cups and saucers all in excellent IMG_3338shape, made in Germany or Bavaria.  The previous owner of these items was really into miniatures and I had to stop myself from buying more at the sale  as I also love anything in miniature.

Art Deco Roanoid Bakelite Ashtrays ca. 1930’s

These were truly a great find.  Found at an estate sale a couple of weeks ago and after some research found out that these were made by Roanoid Ltd of Birmingham England ca. 1935.  They are wonderfully art deco in design and made of Bakelite.  The  base is weighted to prevent tipping and  screws off to empty the ashes.  Sometimes called a ‘tennis ball’ ashtray partly due to the shape and the fact that they were initially designed for the Dunlop Rubber Co. as a sports promotion.   These are very rare and collectible.  You might find some with advertisement stickers on them which would add another facet to their collectibility.  The orangy marbled one is in perfect condition. The green one has a small hairline crack and a small chip on one of  the cigarette holders.

When I can part with them, they will be listed on ebay for sale.

Note: These have now been SOLD!!

Art Deco Teal Glass Boudoir Lamps

4 Dec

boudoir lamps

Found these at a recent estate sale and couldn’t resist.  These boudoir lamps are ca. 1930’s from the art deco period and are sometimes called ‘bullet lamps’.  I have also seen them described as skyscraper lamps and torpedo lamps.   They will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market as soon as I can part with them.

 

‘Luscious’ Tunstall Plate and Small Urn

19 Oct
Tunstall pieces

Who knew brown could be so pretty?

The porcelain plate and urn were manufactured by H.K. Tunstall around the 1930’s when Art Deco was all the rage.  The hand painted pattern of apples and pears  is called Luscious.  There were 14 different hand painted designs in the Luscious series.  These dishes are becoming quite expensive to buy so for now I have a collection consisting of two pieces until I come across some at a decent price.  The hand crafted wood apples were a gift from my son from his recent travel to NFLD this summer. I thought they fit in beautifully with the dishes.
