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!!!

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!!
