Fire King Bowl, Black and Gold Greek Key Pattern, on Warmer

7 Jul

IMG_8267

A really nice find!!  In very nice condition, with little wear to the surfaces.  The bowl is by Fire King and it has a gold and black greek key pattern along the top edge. It sits in a candle warmer stand and has a brass coloured metal lid.  This dates to the 1950’s or early 60’s.  There were several artists that designed these patterns for Fire King; Fred Press and Georges Briard  were two that I know of.  This particular bowl is not signed so I can’t attribute it to one of the aforementioned artists.

Please note I do not ship items. This will be availabe in my booth at the Ottawa Antique Show at the Carleton Univertisty Fieldhouse on Oct 25th and 26th 2014.

Priced at $45.00

Georges Briard Enamelled Covered Pot in Ambrosia Pattern

I really like these designs by Georges Briard. This one is called ‘Ambrosia’.

Found this info on the web:

George Briard (1917-2005), an immigrant from the Ukraine, was an award winning designer from the 1950’s through the 1970’s. He used his real name, “Jascha Brojdo”, on his fine art (paintings, sculpture) and the assumed name of “George Briard” for his commercial designs. He is well known for his signature dishes and glassware which were sold at noted department stores, such as Bonwit Teller and Neiman Marcus.

This lovely pot is in very good condition, with minimal wear to the enamelled finish. The gold seems to be all intact on the design and there are no glaring scratches.

Will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON

Please note this item is now SOLD!!!
