Vintage Plastic Egg Cups, Rosti, Egg-Cessory, Mid Century

There are quite a few different styles, shapes and sizes of plastic egg cups out there to collect.  Many of the plastic egg cups do not have a maker’s mark on them but some are quite recognizable by their shape.
The dark blue and white ones are Rosti from Denmark, the tall stack of primary coloured ones are Egg-Cessory,  and the others in the photos are unmarked.

I purchased the Egg-Cessory egg cups from a kind friend who agreed to part with them.  They were just so cute, I had to have them!!

They remind me of flying saucers which would fit right in with the atomic era styles of the mid century.

Priced at between $2 and $4 apiece.  They are at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, Almonte ON.

 

 

Rosti from Denmark, Purple and Red Melamine Dishes

9 Dec

I hardly ever come across Rosti dishes. I find the utensils and mixing bowls and jugs frequently, but not plates and cups. These all have the Rosti mark, made in Denmark.

Most of the pieces in the photo show some utensil wear and usage but since I have never found these in any large amount before, I thought they would be worth having even with the wear and tear.  The colours are still very vibrant.  The two lug bowls are not Rosti but complement the colours of the Rosti.  The colours are a deep purple and bright red.

The dishes will soon be for sale in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte, ON,just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa.

Priced separately at between $2 and $4 each  piece.

Please note the red dishes are now SOLD!!
