Villeroy & Boch Polka Dotted Pitchers

14 Oct

IMG_9205A group of three very nice examples of mid century pottery by Villeroy & Boch. The backstamp would date these from 1940’s to 50’s.  Made in Germany.  The smallest one is about the size of a small milk jug and the largest would be a suitable size for juice or water.  They are slightly crazed on the surface but still display very well.

These will be for sale at my booth Fab Finds at the upcoming Ottawa Antique & Vintage Market on October 17th and 18th at the Fieldhouse at Carleton University on Bronson Ave. at Sunnyside Ave., Ottawa Ontario.  Open 10 to 5 on Saturday and 10 to 4 on Sunday.

Visit their website ottawaantiqueandvintagemarket.ca for more information on the show and to download a $2 discount on the entrance fee.

Priced at $25, $35 and $45 according to size.

Please note the smallest one is now SOLD!!

 

Wood Rolling Pin Made in Germany, Early to Mid Century, Unusual Style

12 Jul

This is something I have never seen before. The handles of the rolling pin are at right angles to the pin.  I suppose it would make it much easier to roll your dough out with this if you have limited counter space.  I haven’t used it so I don’t know how it would feel to use.  Might be quite nifty to try.

If anyone out there has seen this type of rolling pin before or has one, I would be interested in knowing how they like using it.

I really don’t have a price on this yet, as it may turn out to be worth a bit more than the standard ones. Certainly has novelty value anyway.

Please note this item is now SOLD!!!

Update: There are some letters on the side of the rolling pin, D.R.G.M.  The letters stand for Deutsches Reichsgebrauchsmuster which simply means officially registered in Germany and dates from 1892 to 1952 when the mark was used.  There is no way to tell who made it though.
