Anchor Hocking Chip and Dip Bowls, Black and Gold Leaves

2 Dec

chip and dip set

My photo does not do this bowl set justice. The gold accents make it look very festive against the black hand painted leaves.  I believe these sets were made by Anchor Hocking although there are no markings on them.  I have several mugs by Anchor Hocking with very similar patterns of leaves with the gold trim so I am deducing that they are from the same company. These bowls were produced in the 1950’s to 1960’s when chip and dip sets were so very popular.  These sets came with leaves painted in turquoise, brown, yellow and probably other colours as well. This is first black set I have come across.

Potato chips were first invented in the 1850’s but the chip and dip sets weren’t on the market until the 1950’s when buffet style of serving food became “the” word in entertaining at home.

The set 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 ON.  Open 7 days a week, from 10am to 5pm with plenty of free parking at the rear of the building. Over 50 vendors in a 2 storey brick heritage building offer a huge variety of antiques and collectibles to suit every taste.

Priced at $ 25.00 for the set.

Please note this set is now SOLD!!!!

Christmas angel salt and pepper shakers from Holt Howard, ca 1959. These shakers have their original stickers on the bottoms and the date is clearly marked.  They do not appear to have been used. The trim on the bottom of the dresses and around the heads “referred to as ‘spaghetti trim'” is in good condition.

They will be for sale in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.  Almonte is just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa, ON.  The market has 55 different antique vendors and it is open all year round, every day from 10am to 5pm.

Priced at $25 for the pair.

The following is from the Kovel site: https://www.kovels.com/?sortby=Angel&option=com_datalists&view=category&catid=392. They have a list of values for Holt Howard items.

Holt-Howard was an importer that started working in New York City in 1949 and moved to Stamford, Connecticut, in 1955. John and Robert Howard and Grant Holt started Holt-Howard, whose first products were Christmas items made and sold in the United States. The company sold many types of table accessories, such as condiment jars, decanters, spoon holders, and saltshakers. The figures shown on some of its pieces had a cartoon-like quality. The company was bought out by General Housewares Corporation in 1969. Holt-Howard pieces are often marked with the name and the year or HH and the year stamped in black. The HH mark was used until 1974. There was also a black and silver label. Production of Holt-Howard ceased in 1990. Similar pieces are being made today by Grant Holt, one of the founders, and are marked GHA.

Please note these shakers have been SOLD!!

You can read about the history of Red Wing Pottery at their online site http://www.redwingpottery.com/our-history/our-history.

This speckled serving bowl is fairly large as you can see by the size of the tomato beside it.  Nice mid century modern style would suggest it is dated from the 1950’s.  In very good overall condition showing little wear on the inside.  Quite versatile piece as it is ovenproof.  Nice bowl to warm up the dinner rolls in for supper.

This will be available at my booth at the Ottawa Antique and Vintage Market to be held at The Fieldhouse at Carleton University, Bronson Ave. & Sunnyside Ave. Ottawa Ontario,  on October 17th and 18th, 2015.  I will be bringing many of my mid century modern dishes and glassware, kitchen ware, teak bowls, maple salad bowls by Baribocraft, and Danish modern glassware by Iittala.  Look for the booth ‘Fab Finds’.

This bowl will be priced at $45.
