Red Enamel Ware Tea Kettle, Made in Poland

27 Dec


Nice clean condition.  No big nicks or scratches. Vibrant reddish orange enamel ware tea kettle made in Poland.  Enamelware is very versatile. It can be heated in the oven or on the stove top or over an open fire and can be cleaned in the dishwasher without a problem.  These pieces are meant to hold both hot and cold liquids.  Polish enamelware is among the best of the bunch, especially if made before the 1950’s.  You can usually tell if you have an early piece by the weight.  The later ones are thinner and more tinny sounding when tapped.  There is usually a backstamp indicating Poland as the manufacturer.

To see this item and other fab finds, please visit the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON. Just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa.  Open 7 days a week, all year long, 10am to 5pm.  Over 50 dealers in a 2 storey heritage building in downtown Almonte.

This tea kettle will be priced at $22.00

Please note this item is now SOLD!!!


Red Enamel Ware Sieve, Red GPL Melmac Butter Dish, Retro Striped Glasses

6 Mar





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!!!
