Fire King Bowl, Black and Gold Greek Key Pattern, on Warmer

7 Jul

IMG_8267

A really nice find!!  In very nice condition, with little wear to the surfaces.  The bowl is by Fire King and it has a gold and black greek key pattern along the top edge. It sits in a candle warmer stand and has a brass coloured metal lid.  This dates to the 1950’s or early 60’s.  There were several artists that designed these patterns for Fire King; Fred Press and Georges Briard  were two that I know of.  This particular bowl is not signed so I can’t attribute it to one of the aforementioned artists.

Please note I do not ship items. This will be availabe in my booth at the Ottawa Antique Show at the Carleton Univertisty Fieldhouse on Oct 25th and 26th 2014.

Priced at $45.00

Anchor Hocking Card Suit Milk Glass Mugs

11 Jan

anchor hocking card suit mugs

These mugs were purchased at a little antique store in a small town on one of our jaunts last summer. I put them away for a while and thought I might keep them but alas, I have too much stuff in my basement and I decided to list them on ebay. They sold within minutes for a huge amount of money so I was pretty happy with my decision to part with them.

They are made by Anchor Hocking sometime in the 1970’s and were in excellent clean condition.  What a Fab Find!

Note: These mugs have been SOLD!!

These bowls do not really go together but the colours do suit each other.

A kind visitor to my blog explained that this set is a combination of two different sets: Verde and Town and Country. Thanks for the info!!  I am now trying to put together the two sets before selling them.

Jeannette Glass Co. Iris & Herringbone Vase

3 Dec

IMG_3139

Manufactured by Jeannette Glass Co. during the depression, this is a lovely example of the Iris & Herringbone pattern on a 9″ high  milk glass vase, flashed in a jade colour on the outside.  This was rescued from a dump in an area where there are a lot of cottagers.  Fortunately a good friend of mine who lived in the area spotted it and knew that I would appreciate having it.  They are typically found in iridescent, clear or white milk glass and sometimes found in amberina as well.  Pink ones are rare but do exist.

Retro 50’s Turquoise Ceramic Lamp

27 Nov

 

These are some of my finds this week.  The retro turquoise lamp with an asian inspired ceramic base is my favourite one of the bunch.  This was from an auction I attended and much to my surprise I was the only bidder.   It is straight out of the 50’s.  The yellow melmac platter and bowl were made in Buckingham Quebec, Canada;  the turquoise melmac lug bowls are also Canadian made and are ca. 1950’s.  The pink cased glass shaker and turquoise milk glass shaker are probably ca 40’s.  I found some Tupperware coasters in complementary pastel shades and a pink Fiesta Ware Ramekin which I think is from the 80’s.  The glass is by Dominion Glass Co. of  Canada, ca 1950’s.   All the items other than the lamp were found at my local thrift stores and an estate sale this past weekend.

Please note that most of these items are now SOLD!!

Sunbeam Mixmaster

Sunbeam Mixmaster

Sunbeam Mixmaster  Model #11, ca 1953- 55.  The milk glass bowls were made by Glasbake for the Sunbeam Co.  These workhorses were well used by our mothers and grandmothers and have stood the test of time.  You won’t find mixers on the market today that will last as long as these beauties.  They are quite heavy and very solid.   This one is for sale at my booth in Almonte.

This item is now SOLD~
