delft shakers

Recent finds at an auction house.  There are 3 sets of Delft Blue Shakers at the back left  and two Delft Blue mini liquor bottles at the back right in the photo, made by Bols Distilleries for KLM Airlines, Holland,  for their business class passengers.  One is sealed and one is not.  They are very collectible today.  The small shakers in the middle are by Rosenthal in Germany.  In front are two tiny cobalt blue covered dishes with a duck and a bull for lids.  The darker cobalt blue glass on the right is an eye wash cup.

Please note all the above items are now SOLD!!

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!!
