Mid 20th Century Teak Cat Shakers and Mice Cocktail Spears

20 Jan

teak mice and cats 2

These are in good condition with some minor wear to the leather ears from being stored.  The stand, cats and mice are made of teak.  Cats and mice were very  popular themes for mid century entertaining.

I will be bringing these and an assortment of small teak kitchen items to the Ottawa Antique and Vintage Market, being held at the Carleton Univeristy Fieldhouse on March 21 and 22nd, 2015.

I also have a booth at 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.

Please note this item is now SOLD!!!

 

 

Vintage Yellow Chrome Kitchen Step Stool by Cesare Chrome Furniture

28 May

Just finished reupholstering another vintage chrome step stool, this time using bright yellow marine vinyl. The chrome seems to be in pretty good condition although there is a bit of wear on the legs which doesn’t  detract from the overall look.   The rubber treads on the steps are in good original condition.   We saved the original paper labelling on the bottom of the stool seat and stapled it on after we finished recovering it.  It says that it was made by Cesare Chrome Furniture Mfg, a Division of Restorite Bedding Co. Ltd. in Weston, ON.  I did a little research and found out that the company closed shop in 1987.

This will be going up to my booth at the Almonte Antique Market very shortly.  Address is 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.  Open 7 days a week, year round, with over 50 vendors in a 2 storey building. Check out my booth on the 2nd floor near the back windows.

Priced at $60
