Dorchester Melmac Dishes in Orange and Floral Pattern 1960’s

7 Jul

Dorchester melmac

This partial dish set was manufactured by Dorchester Dinnerware who bought their plastic mold powders from American Cyanamid Co. Only companies that used Cyanamid plastic could name their wares Melmac. By the fifties there were over a hundred companies throughout the states (and a few in Canada) that bought from Cyanamid.  I don’t know the actual date of the dishes, but the colours suggest the sixties rather than the fifties.  The plates have been used but still have lots of life in them.  The cups and bowls are in really nice clean condition.

Priced at  $45 for the set.

These will be availabe at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 MIll Street, Almonte Ont.

Please note these dishes are now SOLD!!!

This was a week to find all things red.   The red enamel ware sieve was made in Poland and is in perfect condition.  So often I find them with sizeable chunks of enamel missing off the edges or on the handles but this one looks brand new.      Priced at $ 18

The red melmac butter dish was made by GPL,  in Gatineau, Quebec,  probably later 50’s or early 60’s.  It is in excellent condition. Priced at $ 15.00.  If you are interested in all things melmac I found a really great blog. http://retrochalet.blogspot.ca. Check it out!!

The spaghetti lifter was made by Tupperware and is a hard plastic, also in great condition. This may be from the 80’s.  Priced at $5

The 5 striped juice glasses go really well with the reds.  One has a little chip on the edge so I will only be selling a set of 4, which works well for most people anyway. Priced at $ 12.00 for the set.

All of these will be available in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.

Please note that the glasses and strainer are SOLD!!!
