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

15 May

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.



Plastic or Lucite Teapot Napkin Holder, Mid Century

23 Feb



I would date this to the late 1960’s or early 1970’s.  There were so many designers of this type of molded plastic ware at that time that I couldn’t even guess who this might be from.  The most common ones I know of were made by Colorflo, Wondermold, New Designs, and others.  It is constructed of a hard plastic material and shaped like a teapot. They came in a variety of styles and colours to match the mid century decor.

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

Priced at $ 15.00
