Unique teapot from Tastesetter by Sigma,  with a Pierrot clown reclining on the top, forming the handle and lid. The teapot was made in Japan and imported by Sigma which was a division of Rockville International operating in Garden City N.Y in the late 1960’s and 70’s.  Sigma was only around for about 10 years so these whimisical items are hard to find and thus very collectible.  This piece probably dates to the early 1970’s.

The condition is excellent, no nicks or cracks or other damage noted.

You can find this item and other treasures at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON, just west of Ottawa, ON.

Open 7 days a week, from 10am to 5pm, all year round.

Priced at $45.00

Fitz & Floyd Bunny Rabbit Tea Pot

12 Jan

F & F Bunny

Fitz and Floyd was founded by brothers Pat Fitzpatrick and Bob Floyd in Dallas, Texas in 1960.  The company started out as an import company, but then moved into designing ceramic giftware as well. They moved into tabletop products and accessories in the late 1960s.  The collectibles like teapots, cookie jars and ornaments were introduced in the 1990’s.

Most collectors of F&F will recognize a piece from across a room.  They are very distinctive and full of imagination and colour.   This is a nice whimsical teapot, adorned with a lid shaped like a rabbit, with a decidedly Easter theme on the pot.

For sale at my booth soon at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.   Just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa.

Priced at $ 45.00
