She has her original side part brunette wig which is very full, but a little fly-away, moving blue eyes that are stuck in the open position with painted lashes and no eyelids, and a strung body. Her coloring is good and fits a brunette doll. On her back she is marked 'Story Book / Dolls / California.' She is wearing an original tagged Nancy Ann faded taffeta dress, matching taffeta panties, beige socks, and white plastic Muffie shoes. This outfit is likely to come from the era of later walking Muffie dolls. The faint lavender dress has white lace and pink floral trim and an attached slip. This is faded and shows soil, but the snap is intact in back and there do not appear to be any holes or tears. This doll has been restrung, as if likely wiith most of these dolls. Her arms, legs, and body are all in great shape. Doll is in very good used condition considering her age. Expand listing to view all 5 photographs.

This particular glaze came in three color variations: Orange Peel, Lime Peel, and Lime Peel as well as two decorated variations known as Navajo Blue (Lime Peel glaze with blue squiggles) and Seminole Orange (Orange Peel glaze with blue squiggles), all created by the brilliant Alrun Osterberg Guest, this is an up-and-coming line. It was produced only in 1976-77.


Alrun Guest (1942-2012) came to Haeger Potteries in 1969 from Berlin Germany and worked there until at least 2010. I consider her in the ranks of Eva Zeisel, an incredibly talented designer and ceramic engineer. 


This Royal Haeger Orange Peel #4170X vase stands 13 inches high. It is one of the larger pieces in the line. 


Part of the 1976-1977 line offered by the Haeger Pottery Co, the full line can be seen on p. 170 of the David Dilley book. Condition is excellent -- no chips, cracks, nicks, flakes, stains or other damage / problems.


There is a paper label on the bottom of the vase from the Boylan-Pearce store of Raleigh, North Carolina. I believe that the original felt on bottom with impressed Haeger mark was removed by the store for them to place their store label on the base. The vase is in excellent condition


Add it to your Royal Haeger or Mid-century pottery collection today.  Annemarie Davidson (1920-2012) 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 plate is highly unusual as it does not feature the radiating lines of many of her plates. Instead there is a speckled background of pink and white.


This 5 3/4 inch plate, most likely from the 1961-1962 time period, is unusual for its color and type of jewels used. This plate features 9 oblong clear jewels around a larger rectangular jewel with rounded corners. The shape of the plate mirrors the central jewel with its rounded corners. It is very unusual to have a plain background. The use of clear glass for the jewels is highly unusual. 


What is interesting about this particular plate is the geometric placement of the jewels.  


The back of the plate is signed with her charcteristic AD interwined initials. Due to the very square corners of the letter D, I feel this plate is from the 1961-1964 time period. 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.  2012-2013 Precious Moments Inc. 12 inch Christmas Blessings to You Tree-Top angel, No. 4696 is a pale blonde angel with a bun encircled by a red and gold braid corona, painted green teardrop-shaped eyes, red bead earrings, and a smiling face.

Each one stands 4 3/4 inches high.  There is one in each of the following glazes:  Mountain Blue, Vermont Green, White, and Tawny Brown. The shape was designed by Japanese designer Yusuke Aida while employed by David Gil at Bennington Potters. This is part of the Classic Line which is shown in a 1966-67 catalogue in the Cunningham book and in a 1968 brochure on the website Modish.net.


One easy way to identify this line is by the handle. If the shape number is between 1601-1683 and it has this loop handle, it is an Aida design.


This line came in the following colors: Mountain Blue, White, Vermont Green, Rust, Tawny Brown. They are all in excellent condition.


In their 1964 catalogue, Gil described their creations as "Art Objects in the Practical Realm" - Museum Honored, Hand-crafted, Modestly Priced,"


These objects surely show clearly both his genius and his intent. Add it to your Mid-century American Studio Pottery collection today.  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 1959-1960 period when Gil  included both the words Design Cooperative and Bennington Vermont.


This square 8 inch diameter trivet / plaque was advertised in the 1964 catalogue as 1535, a trivet which could also be hung on the wall as a plaque as it had a built-in wire on the back. This piece is shown in the 1964 catalogue as and is titled there Eggs. Its original 1964 price was $3.00. I recently learned that the six 8 inch square flat tiles were all designed by Gloria Gil, David's first wife with whom he started the company in 1948.


It features 6 eggs in various stages. Done in an abstract stylized manner, the eggs are molded in relief and the incised areas are glazed in a very dark green and black. 


The back of the trivet/plaque has a wire hanger which was embedded in the pottery. It retains all four original rubber feet which protects the flat surface upon which one sets it. It is signed 1535 and has the spark mark on the forearm inside a rectangle made up of COOPERATIVE DESIGN and BENNINGTON POTTERS VERMONT. It is in excellent vintage condition.


Bennington Potters is 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 some information I found online by the  Talbot Hamilton Group (http://www.corellecorner.com/home.html)


about Centura:  Available from late 1962 to 1977, Centura Tableware offered outstanding break resistance combined with the appearance of quality porcelain.  It carried a three year warranty against chips, cracks, breaks and crazing, a promise that no other dinnerware brand could make.  Centura's innovative glazed glass-ceramic formula is quite different from Corning Ware's composition.  Corning Ware cookware has extraordinary resistance to heat shock, but it is not immune to breakage from impacts.  Centura's heat-resistance is comparable to that of Pyrex; it may be used in the oven, but not on the stovetop.


Centura cannot be used in the microwave, and although that was not important when it was developed, by the mid 1970s this limitation would make Centura seem impractical.  When Corelle combined the benefits of good break-resistance, lighter weight and lower cost, plus microwave capabilities, its popularity eclipsed that of Centura as well as every other brand of everyday dinnerware.


Centura Tableware's discontinuance was announced July 1977, following the launch of Corelle's Expressions Livingware line that spring.


This particular pattern is called Summerhill. It debuted in 1970. It is a vivid yellow & orange floral, also designed by Cynthia Gerow. This pattern was discontinued in 1976 0r 1977.  This second version of the line had the floral pattern on the side of the bowls. This coupe shape as it is known was all the rage in the 1950s-1970s.


Each bowl is marked on the bottom:  Centura by Corning, Corning, NY USA. Baking only. No Microwave.  


So, whip up some bread pudding or a crumble and serve a tasty retro midcentury treat.  Price is for the set. They are all in excellent vintage condition.


 This particular glaze came in three color variations: Lime Decorated, Orange Decorated, and Blue Decorated. Created by the brilliant Alrun Osterberg Guest, this is an up-and-coming line. It was produced only in 1971-1972. Alrun Guest (1942-2012) came to Haeger Potteries in 1969 from Berlin Germany. I consider her in the ranks of Eva Zeisel, an incredibly talented designer and ceramic engineer. 


The shape is a standard Royal Haeger shape. It is the #4143 shape which stands 9 inches tall. Its original price was $6.00 as can be seen on page 151 of the David Dilley Haeger book where this line can be seen in a 1971 Haeger catalog.

Couroc of Monterey History: Couroc was formed in 1948 by the husband and wife team of Guthrie Sayle Courvoisier (? - 1969) and Moira Wallace (~1910-1979) . Wallace was a gifted artist, whose early work included mosaic designs built from inlaid metal and plastic materials. Guthrie developed the technology further, and began Couroc company, which produced heavy, durable plastic trays with inlaid designs.


Guthrie Courvoisier had learned about plastic during World War II, when he was a contractor who manufactured certain plastic parts for military aircraft. (Plastics were essential to the war effort, for their rather unique qualities.) Like nearly all wartime plastics, Courvoisier's were probably jet-black, unlike the multicolored bakelite of decades prior.


In the mid-1950's the company's sales picked up, and it already had a few different designs in its product line. Sales seem to have been mostly in the California area at this time.


The company made a special effort to hire local artists for their design work. As the company slowly grew, it created numerous designs, and began expanding its product line beyond merely trays, so that customers could buy matched sets of trays, glasses, ice buckets, and even napkins. In the 1970's Couroc exploded in popularity, selling well in stores across the nation.

 

By the mid-1980ís, Couroc's popularity had dropped, and the company was shifting from producing items for the general public, to making promotional items (for sales to corporations or organizations commemorating special events.) In the 1990's, it turned almost exclusively to promotional items.


This Couroc center handled tidbit tray is in the famous Roadrunner pattern.  It features three of the cool birds running around the center of the tray.  On the back is the original gold foil paper label which reads:  Couroc serving pieces are cherished gifts because of their variety and beauty of design. Hand inlaid by master craftsmen, shells, coins, woods, and metals are fused into satin black phenolic. They are impervious to alcohol or boiling water. Wash with mild soap and water.


There is also an in-relief molded signature in the piece itself.  There are four very cool feet so that the piece sits absolutely flat on the table. The handle is brass plated. The piece is in excellent vintage condition.


Add it to your Eames era mid-century decor today.  Give your place some Mad Men flair.  This milk glass body line of glassware carries a label identifying it as Mar-Crest. Marcrest is actually a name brand not the name of the manufacturer. It is a Product line created by a retail chain called Marshall-Burns, a division of Technicolor, operated out of Chicago.

This particular pattern of an abstract space age design done in turquoise and gray is referred to as "Blue Heaven". The glass itself was made by Anchor Hocking under its Fire-King line though some mugs are not marked Fire-King.


This great retro vintage coffee mug stands  3 3/4 inches tall.  It is 3 1/4 inches across at the top. What a great addition to your Eames era or Mid-century home!  This great example of the Art Deco sensibilities of the Noritake mold makers and decorators is amazing.  Although the practical utilitarian purpose for this dish is as a lemon slice server for tea, the design vaults it into a totally different category as an art object.  


Measuring 7 inches long x 6 1/4 inches wide, this could hold a lot of lemon slices.  


What is really striking about this piece is the restraint with which the decorators designed it.  The bold back outlines on the figural berry and leaf handle draw the eye, but it is the touch of mint green under the black handle which pops.  Noritake Art Deco pieces with figural elements have been popular for a long time.  This is a great example of this technique.


It is signed on the back with the standard Green Wreath Noritake mark. Add it to your Noritake Art Deco collection today.  This large Noritake Nippon cake plate measures 9 1/2  inches across from the tip of the handle to the other handle. It is a standard Noritake shape, but it is unusual to see it NOT signed with the post-1921 Noritake mark but with lesser known green cherry mark. I would place this piece in the 1925-1930 time period as it is an interesting mix of Victorian flowers with the scarce pearl luster. The most interesting part of the decoration is on the rim where the use of negative space creates designs in white which is really the underglaze. Notice the way the flowers start in the blue luster rim and continue onto the pearl luster center ground.


It is very practical and functional piece of china and is ready for your holiday table.  The three floral cartouches are all hand-painted. 


It is in fair vintage shape. One can see a good amount of wear on the center ground when one tips the plate to the light. No chips or cracks though.  Add it to your Nippon or Noritake collection today.

Gemco's products include glass food dispensers of all kinds as well as storage containers and handy kitchen aids. They are normally signed with a lower case g for GEMCO.

Gemco also made official licensed products under the brand name Corning Coordinates For Corelle. The company has also produced matching accessories in clear glass for other dinnerware manufacturers, like Pfaltzgraff.


This funky and retro pair of shakers  would look good on your retro or vintage table today.  Both are in excellent vintage shape. They measure 3 1/2 inches in height.

This type of solid milk glass decorated glass belonged to a line that Consolidated dubbed Con Cora, deriving from the first few letters of the names Consolidated and Coraopolis, the town near Pittsburgh where Consolidated made glass.


Milk glass became immensely popular after World War II. Almost every American glass company put out its version. Westmoreland, Imperial are the better known names associated with this glass. This line was Consolidated's entry into the crowded marketplace.


Dating from the 1950s to the early 1960s, most Consolidated Con Cora items were decorated in one of the three most popular lines:  Ivy, Violet, and Rose. 


 This #4038 shape piece is decorated in the 1384G decoration: the Pine Cone decoration, a creation of Helen Mixter. It is not signed by the decorator. Two pinecones are featured on a horizontal branch on the front. The back has a section of branch but no pine cones.  There is a mustard yellow paint rim band around the neck of the piece.  The vase measures 9 1/2 inches tall. It features the "button" on the bottom which is a trademark Consolidated mold feature.  It is also iridized to highlight the colors of the piece. It is in excellent condition.


Enjoy America's glass past by purchasing a pratical and beautiful piece of American glass.  The piece is in excellent condition.  2013 Vogue Sleep Over outfit only, No. 13MGCP15, fits 5.25 inch mini Ginny dolls.

He is self taught. This studio glass artist has put out a limited amount of work over the past 33 years. He stopped blowing glass around 1990 and didn't start blowing again until 1999. He uses NO MOLDS and his only help has been his wife Donna who is responsible for all the finish work on the pieces. I had an email from Terry and Donna in 2002 stating that he doesn't think it would be fair to the collectors to make any of the same things again. They decided in 2006 to make glass again, but they are not going to make anything that they have made in the past. They pledge to develop new colors. He's a great artist with VERY few early pieces out there. This toothpick holder is in mint condition and is signed Terry Crider and dated 1976 on the base. That is the sane year after he started blowing glass commercially! This early piece has the earliest signature with the word Terry on the top, then the date 1976, then the last name Crider on the second line.  It is the only one I have seen with this arrangement.


This Terry Crider 1976 TP is done in a highly irridescent amethyst base glass with 4 thick iridized white pulled feathers all of which are iridized. I like that each of the pulled feathers has its own character. It's hard to imagine the amount of work that went into this beautiful, hand made toothpick holder. 


This toothpick holder stands about 2 1/2 inches high. The top rim is 1 7/8 inches wide. It is a fantastic piece of American 20th century art glass! It is in perfect condition.


I am a long time member and past President (1988) of the National Toothpick Holder Collectors Club. I guarantee the authenticity of this TP.
