A great Red Scotch Plaid Picnic carrying Case with all of your flatware, serving and picnic utensil and even a small plastic S&P set!  The flatware is a service for six and they are marked Stainless Steel USA.  The wooden handled items- steak knives, spatula, carving knife and fork are marked Utica Super Edge Stainless Steel USA.  Condition is very good- appears to be unused.  There is one piece of elastic that is loose where the Carving Fork is attached. This matches other Plaid items of the era.  I have the same set and I use with my metal cooler.  Food and beverage go in the cooler and we grab the Silverware Case and off we go.  When we get home, I wash everything, put it in back in the case with some fresh napkins and it's ready for the next picnic.  See all the pictures for close ups of the items.

Information from the The Complete Guide to Corning Ware & Visions Cookware book by Kyle Coroneos. " The Blue Cornflower was the first Corning Ware emblem. It was introduced with the original line of skillets and saucepans in 1957. In 1988 Corning retired the Blue Cornflower. The blue cornflower which is found on 90 plus pieces of Corning's Pyroceram ware debuted in 1957 and was retired in 1987. The P series dates from 1957-1971 when it was replaced by the A series which ended in 1987.


This P-82-B-1 1/2 Corning Blue Cornflower Menu-ette Covered Saucepan was made between 1966 and 1971. It is being sold with the P-81-C lid. It holds 1 1/2 pints. It is shown on page 27 of Coroneos' 2006 guide titled The Complete Guide to Corning Ware & Visions Cookware.

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 1650 and titled "Greek Head", 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 a very stylized Head with a stylized beard done orange. 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 speckled with two shades of white. The eyes of the head have been painted green. and an orange stain used on the beard.


This is a confirmed David Gil design. It was confirmed by Gloria Gil in May 2012.


The back of the plate/plaque has a wire hanger which was embedded in the pottery. It is signed 1651 and has the spark mark on the forearm. I would guess it is from the 1960-1962 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 David Gil at Bennington Potters in Vermont. It is from the 1955-1960 period. Bennington by Gil started in 1948 . They 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. They made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware that was distributed throughout the US and sold in fine department stores but this is an earlier more studio inspired piece. 


Marked #1541 this is a stylized pig in a highly abstract style. David Gil designed a series of animal banks, including a hippo, an owl and a lion. This was called Penurious Pig! Like Glidden Parker in the early 1940s, Gil used various animal motifs often on his ware, though most are two dimensional representations. This fun and funky pig stands 4 1/2 inches tall to the top of its back x 8 inches long. The main portion of the bank is unglazed with some impressed asterisks covering the pig's body. The asterisks are in brown, one of four colors possible. It has the original red plastic cork to seal the opening on the bottom. It is signed Bennington Potters Bennington VT which places it in the 1962-1968 time period. This pig back was shown in a 1967-68 catalogue along with the other nine shapes. 


This bank is in excellent condition with no damage. I have priced this Penurious Pig bank very fairly. It would make a stunning sculptural piece on a McCobb or Eames era credenza or coffee table.


David Gil was featured in the publication Vermont Life in its Winter 1961 issue. In an eight page spread with one full color image and 13 black and white images, there is a full history of the founding of the pottery along with great visual references of the ware being made at that time. One can see the iconic designs of Yusuke Aida, especially the double trigger mug and coffeepot along with other fascinating items. A great reference!

From 1937-1939 he was a classmate of Glidden Parker. He had his studio in Burlington Vermont from 1946 -1960 until his untimely tragic death in February 1960. 



Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard who worked in the Burlington area, this is an unusual shape for Ballard. It carries the shape number 24. The glaze is a green glaze which shows some of the chocolate brown underglaze at the rim. It is from his later period as there is almost no chocolate brown showing on the bottom rim of the vase. It is in excellent shape.
