There are quite a few different styles, shapes and sizes of plastic egg cups out there to collect.  Many of the plastic egg cups do not have a maker’s mark on them but some are quite recognizable by their shape.
The dark blue and white ones are Rosti from Denmark, the tall stack of primary coloured ones are Egg-Cessory,  and the others in the photos are unmarked.

I purchased the Egg-Cessory egg cups from a kind friend who agreed to part with them.  They were just so cute, I had to have them!!

They remind me of flying saucers which would fit right in with the atomic era styles of the mid century.

Priced at between $2 and $4 apiece.  They are at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, Almonte ON.

Vintage Westclox Clock 1950’s Atomic Style

22 Feb

westinghouse clock

This poor little clock doesn’t work but the style was so iconic of the 50’s that I had to have it just for display purposes. Hopefully I can get the clock working again.  The wood is probably teak and it sits on brass legs.  Made in Canada ca. 1950’s.

Please Note: This item is now SOLD!!
