Here is a whimsical modern stoneware piece from the late David Gil at Bennington Potters in Vermont. started by David Gil in 1948. It is from the the post-1960 time period when Gil began to use the words Bennington Potters on pieces after having used a transition mark which included both the words Design Cooperative and Bennington Vermont.


This fluted 9 5/8 inch diameter plate was advertised in the 1964 catalogue as B 1653 and titled "Daisies", an ashtray which could also be hung on the wall as a plaque as it had a built-in wire on the back.  Its original 1964 price was $5.00.


It  features six stylized daisies.  The stems, leaves, and petals are incised. The 1964 ad states the this piece was available in white or turquoise with colored accents. The glaze I believe is an early white one as it is quite high gloss with some mottling in the glaze giving the color depth.  The steams and leaves have been accented in a dark olive green and the flowers are accented in dark brown.


I believe that this series of ashtrays 1650-1655 was designed by David Gil's first wife Gloria Gil, who also designed the 1553 Fighting Cock tile. and perhaps all the tiles in that series.


The back of the plate/plaque is missing the wire hanger which was embedded in the pottery.  It is signed 1653 and has the spark mark on the forearm.  I would guess it is from the 1960-1964 period. It is in excellent condition.


Bennington Potters are among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury. It evolved into a co-operative of different art potters. 


After 1960, they made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware that was distributed throughout the US and sold in fine department stores.  Here is a whimsical modern stoneware piece from the late David Gil at Bennington Potters in Vermont. started by David Gil in 1948.

It is part of the tableware set designed by Gil with mold numbers 1365 (followed by a letter) and it is referred to as the "Old Bennington" collection. David Gil designed the pieces, largely beginning in the early mid fifties, not likely adding to the collection after Yusuke Aida came on board and was commissioned to design the next collection there, (the so-called "Classic Bennington") in 1961.  Pieces from this series were produced well into - if not through -  the 70's, based on backstamp styles alone, as can be seen on the bottom of this piece.


This is the 1365I 8 1/4" wide salad plate in a standard glaze color for this line. It is a dark teal color.  It is in excellent condition. It is signed on the bottom with the stamped "bennington potters, bennington vermont" mark and the shape number 1365I.

Standing 3 1/2 inches tall, this Noritake Art Deco figural flower frog depicts what to me seems like a kingfisher (serious birder here).  The stump with the five openings for flower stems is done in Noritake's classic tan luster.  The back and head of the bird are done in blue luster. The bill is black as are the pupils. The irises are yellow with a purple band through the eye. The feet are black.  It is marked with the standard MADE IN JAPAN mark. I guarantee it to be Noritake.


A very similar figurine is shown on page 172 of David Spain's   1999 Collecting Noritake A to Z book and is valued there at $260-290. As I bought this very reasonably my price is much lower.

I think it is a great art deco design- and it kind of looks like a space ship to me.  The chrome and glass are in excellent condition showing little sign of wear.

This is the #1342 rimmed covered casserole with metal bail handle. It is done in an early teal glaze. It measures 10 1/4 inches across x 7 inches wide. It has a lid which features a metal handle which was formed into the pottery. . It would make a great  baking and/or serving dish as. It's a good-sized practical dish. It would look great with your McCobb or Eames buffet.


The casserole bottom is marked 1342. The lid is marked 1342 C, most likely the C refers to it being the cover. There is a tiny pinpoint flake on top rim though it is so small it is just on the inside part of the top rim which slopes down toward the handle. It  was there when I bought it and will be there when you buy it. I describe my items accurately. 


It is signed with the earlier transition mark which includes the words Bennington Potters and also Cooperative Design. This makes it more circa 1960-1961 than 1964.

This #1538 saucer/coaster measures 4 5/8 inches across. It is done in the Turquoise glaze. 


The mark on the back shows that this piece, though a 1960s design, was produced later, probably in the early 1970s as it uses the lower case letters for all the words.

Tonner 2011 Small World Dutch Girl from Holland doll from the Disney Showcase Collection, No. T11DYDD15, is a high quality vinyl 10 inch doll with a Small World head on an Ann Estelle body with bending knees but straight arms. She has a lighter skintone with a blonde wig styled in braids with yellow ribbon and painted brown eyes. The Tonner site shows a picture with blue eyes, but the dolls that came to me all have brown eyes and the Tonner site has been corrected to describe brown eyes, unlike the catalog photographs. She is dressed as on the Disney ride when journeying through the land of tulips. She is wearing a brilliant blue dress with contrasting yoke and sleeves, trimmed with bright green ribbon, a touch of yellow, and delicate eyelet lace, a white cloth hat, white tights, and yellow resin clogs that look like wood.

This funky and retro Mid-century pottery was probably made in Italy by the Toscany Company, of Empoli Italy. Empoli is a town in Tuscany about 20 miles south of Florence. Empoli is also not far from Montelupo, a famous center of Italian pottery made for export to the United States.  The silver label seen on identical pieces seems to be restricted to the 1945-1970 time period.

Made by the Homer Laughlin Company only from February 1936 to 1945 with a producation period of only 9 years, this Harlequin turquoise oval baker is hard to find today.  It is in very very good shape. The bowl measures 9 1/2 inches across and stands 2 inches high. It has great Deco styling and is a pratical and stylish piece today. I use a set of yellow individual salad bowls as my everyday dishes, great for salad, soups, pasta.


It is shown on page 236 of book titled Fiesta, Harlequin, Kitchen Kraft Dinnerware produced the the Homer Laughlin China Collectors Associatiion and published by Schiffer in 2000. The valuation at that time was $30-$33. My price is much less because I bought it very very reasonably.


It is in very good vintage condition with only a few light knife marks which can only be seen if you tip the bowl to the light.  Good strong glazing.

The pattern is also shown on page 161 of the Bredehoft Second Edition book and listed there as having a value of $190. I have priced this toothpick holder considerably under that price as I bought it very reasonably. 


It stands 2 1/8 inches tall x 2 inches wides.  This holder is in excellent condition, with what we toothpick collectors consider normal rim roughness. It is unreasonable to expect a piece of glass which was made in 1893 and had household use to be exactly as it left the factory.  The top rim has never been ground down on this one. 


I am a long time member and past President (1988) of the National Toothpick Holder Collectors Club. I guarantee the authenticity of this TP. For more info on toothpick holders as a great collectible, visit the National Toothpick Holder Collectors Society web page at (www.nthcs.org)  Made by the Consolidated Company at their Fostoria Ohio plant in the 1890s, this Consolidated Pansy toothpick holder is unusual in that it is cased white inside but the outside pink layer has an opaque quality to it, almost like the later Consolidated ceramic finishes. It is in great shape. 


It stands 2 inches tall x 2 3/4 inches wide.

This is a pastel Yellow Cup from a Moderntone Little Hostess Party Set by Hazel Atlas.  Measure 2" tall.  Excellent condition- no chips or cracks and good paint.  If you are looking to replace a lost or damaged one, this is a nice one!  Priced each at  I love these old Cookie Cutters with the wooden handles.  This one is aluminum in the shape of a diamond (Bridge Set) with a jadite green handle.  It's in excellent condition.  Annemarie Davidson learned her enameling craft first from the great Doris Hall (1907-2001) in Cambridge, MA in 1957. In California she continued her studies with Curtis Tann. Her combination of geometric and organic form in her designs culminated in her most celebrated abstract designs, her Jewel line which features pieces of glass used to create free-form organic shapes which she calls Jewels. She also uses a sgraffito technique, incising straight lines from the center of her plate with the sharp point of a dart. 


This 11 1/4 inch plate, most likely from the 1961-1962 time period, is unusual for its size. It is scarce to find plates larger than her more standard 6-7 inches. This plate features 5 large light blue jewels, 12 smaller cobalt blue jewels . The underlying copper color can be seen near the edges. A prominent Palm Springs CA dealer James Elliot-Bishop on his website has named this pattern as Grooveline.


What is interesting about this particular plate is the asymmetric placement of the jewels. Davidson was usually quite symmetric in her placement.  There are few pieces where the smaller jewels appear singly as on this large plate.

The back of the plate is signed with her charcteristic AD interwined intiails and her paper label which reads Annemarie Davidson handcrafted enamels Sierra Madre California. Every piece was handcrafted by her alone, from start to finish. Excellent condition. 


The work of Annemarie Davidson was included in the seminal exhibit titled Painting with Fire which opened in Jan 2007 at the Long Beach Museum of Art. She was one of 30 enamelists included with a one page entry on her life and work. Her page is page 266 of the catalogue.  This particular tumbler is from the Spanish Knobs line of glass produced by the Consolidated Glass Company of Coraopolis Pennsylvania, makers of the iconic Ruba Rombic glass.  In the original 1929 catalog for the Catalonian line, there were three items having the raised knobs on them. Consolidated expanded this variation of the Catalonian line into a complete line of tableware as there are fifteen different shapes of tumblers and goblets alone.


This tumbler has a square base and a round top and holds 12 ounces. It is in excellent shape and a good example of this American Art Deco line.
