Mushroom Patterned Mugs, Made in Japan

14 Jun

IMG_7925

Wonderful set of 4 colourful pedestal mugs, with pattern of mushrooms in blue, green and mustard yellow. These colours, and of course the mushrooms, are indicative of the late 60’s or early 70’s.  Japan manufactured a huge amount of colourful dishware for the North American market during this time period so it is still relatively easy to find and collect.  Finding items in mint condition is a little harder and prices usually reflect that.

These mugs are in wonderful condition and are on display and for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.

Priced at $20 for the set of 4.

Dansk fondue pot

Yellow enamelled Fondue Pot designed by Jens Quistguaard for Dansk  sometime in the 1960’s.  It has a teak handle and is made of cast iron.  I don’t think the base is the original although it appears to fit alright.  The pot itself is in very nice used condition, with little signs of wear. Made in France. The yellow colour is called ‘Sun Gold’

Will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 MIll Street, Almonte ON.

Priced at $40.

 

Hornsea Linear Red and White Striped Canisters

I think these pretty red and white striped canisters were made in the late 70’s or early 80’s.  The pattern is called Linear. They were made by Hornsea Co. and located in Hornsea  (the town of Hornsea is in the East Riding of Yorkshire England). The company was in production from 1949 until 2000 when it went in to receivership.   In 1967 the factory started to produce full ranges of tableware, the first being the John Clappison-designed Heirloom, followed by his Saffron and Bronte patterns. The 1960’s and 70’s they were in their heyday of production.  Tastes changed in the early 80’s and profits plummeted.

Tucked in between the canisters is an Androck syrup dispenser with red plastic handle, dating to the 60’s.

Hornsea is widely collected and is durable and beautiful still today.  These canisters are in excellent used condition, the lids still fitting snugly.

These canisters will be for sale shortly in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.  The market is open 7 days a weeks, all year long.  Over 50 different vendors in a two storey heritage building.

Priced at $ 35 for the pair.
