Q Squared Melamine Set of Coloured Mixing Bowls

7 Jul


coloured bowls 3

These are very recent in age.  Manufactured sometime after 2011 by the company Q Squared which operates out of New York, NY.  Q Squared has a design team in Italy and their own manufacturing facilities in China.  Their showroom is at 41 Madison on the 19th floor.  According to their CEO, it (the company) has masterfully reinvented melamine, creating plates and bowls to take on a look that is hip and fashionable yet practical and even luxurious. “Finally, irresistible melamine is here!” she remarked.

These are indeed very well made, heavy and substantial feeling.  Nice quality and extremely useful set of 6 melamine bowls in a rainbow of colours.  They look beautiful displayed anywhere.

This melamine is not suitable for the mircrowave.

These are currently at my booth in the Almonte Antique Market  (These are not old enough to be considered even a collectible at this point but they were too colourful and useful to pass up).

Priced at $25 for the set

Please Note: Not surprisingly, this set is now SOLD!!


Rosti from Denmark, Purple and Red Melamine Dishes

9 Dec


I hardly ever come across Rosti dishes. I find the utensils and mixing bowls and jugs frequently, but not plates and cups. These all have the Rosti mark, made in Denmark.

Most of the pieces in the photo show some utensil wear and usage but since I have never found these in any large amount before, I thought they would be worth having even with the wear and tear.  The colours are still very vibrant.  The two lug bowls are not Rosti but complement the colours of the Rosti.  The colours are a deep purple and bright red.

The dishes will soon be for sale in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte, ON,just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa.

Priced separately at between $2 and $4 each  piece.

Please note the red dishes are now SOLD!!
