TG Green flameware 2

TG Green flameware

These are rare pieces of T.G. Green & Co. Flamex Ware.  Very difficult to find. This is the culmination of over 10 years of collecting so you can see that they are not in abundance.  The backstamp dates from the 1930’s. There are 2 different styles of custard cups, 1 small bowl and 2 small dessert bowls  These pieces are not for sale at the moment.  I would have a hard time parting with them just yet.

If you are interested in vintage dishes and kitchenalia from the mid 20th century,  drop in to see my booth
Fab Finds at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.  It is open 7 days a week, 10 to 5,  all year long.  There are over 50 vendors with a huge variety of items housed in a 2 storey heritage building.

Carlton Ware Hand Painted Australian Design Pin Dishes

25 Feb

carlton ware 5 dishes

Five very nice examples of Carlton Ware pin dishes.  I think these patterns are more common as I see them on ebay quite frequently.  These five dishes are in very nice condition, with no crazing that I could see and no nicks or damage.  The backstamp on these was used between 1935 to 1961.IMG_7016

These are the perfect size to put on a dresser to hold a few pairs of earrings.

Found the following information at this web site: http://www.pristineantiques.com.

By the mid 1930’s the Japanese had become masters of copying good quality wares and Carlton Ware became a target. Prices for the imitations were much lower than the originals they copied, which caused much concern. However, Cuthbert discovered a clause in the South East Asia Treaty Organisation (SEATO) between Australia and Japan where designs registered in Australia could not be copied by the Japanese. He quickly took advantage of this by registering a large number of patterns in Australia. This explains the “Registered Australian Design) backstamp on many of their patterns.

I stumbled across another great site( nicholnack.com) that has some beautiful and unusual examples of Carlton Ware if you are interested. The site has photos of backstamps you can refer to if you want  to date your pieces and a lot of history on Carlton Ware as well as other fine ceramics. 

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

Priced at $8 each

Franciscan Ware Floral Pattern, England ca. 1980’s

19 Jan

As you can see, I like bold, bright coloured dishes for the most part.   They just look so cheerful.

They are Franciscan Ware made in England.  A very kind friend researched and found out the name of the pattern was Floral.  All Franciscan ware was made in the US until 1984. After that, Franciscan ware production was moved to England. The Franciscan brand became part of a group of companies known as WWRD, an acronym for “Wedgwood Waterford Royal Doulton.”   So these would be dated after 1984.

There are 4 dinner plates, 4 luncheon plates, 4 soup bowls and 4 dessert bowls, one covered sugar and one vegetable bowl.  All the dishes are in excellent condition, with little evidence of usage.  Nice shiny surfaces.  Some of the dishes have slight crazing in the glaze, but really not that noticeable.

These will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte, ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa

Priced at $ 85 for the set.

Please note these dishes are now SOLD!!!

Royal Albert China Dishes, Brigadoon Pattern or Thistle

12 Jan

This is one complete 5 piece place setting of Royal Albert Bone China in the Brigadoon pattern, also known as Thistle.  Place setting consists of one dinner plate, one salad plate, one luncheon plate, one cup and one saucer. Soft pastel blue and purple thistles with moss green leaves and gold edged rims.  The pattern was available for a long time and was finally retired in the early 2000’s.  A place setting as above was priced at $155.00 back then.

Bone china sets are not as desirable today as they used to be.  Those of us baby boomers who were married in the 70’s and 80’s typically registered for a fine bone china pattern such as this one made by Royal Albert in England.  Many of us never used them except on very special occasions so they can be found in excellent condition today.  The brides today are much more practical, opting for good quality everyday dishes for wedding gifts rather than the delicate china of old.   Most older bone china sets can be bought for a fraction of what they cost new.

There are 4 place settings currently available.  Each place setting will be priced at $50 and will be availabe at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa.
