This is a striking Bitossi Italy Rosenthal-Netter vase designed by Aldo Londi in 1974. The vase stands 6 1/4 inches tall x 5 1/2 inches wide at its widest point midway up the vase. This vase is part of the Rosenthal-Netter line of imported Italian pottery and ceramics.


The pattern on this Aldo Londi creation is called Moderna Marocco which is the Italian word for Modern Morrocan. According to Mark Hall in his recent book on Italian Mid-century pottery, this line was inspired by the blossoming studio pottery movement of the 1970s. As Hill states, high quality designs such as this took longer to apply and were more expensive, making them rare today. Unusually, this design does not include sgraffito or impressed elements.


Excellent condition. Original Rosenthal-Netter paper label but the numbers are gone.  I have two other pieces from this line with labels. All have the line number of 266/. 


In the Mark Hill book, the 10 inch version of this vase on page 72 is valued at 300-500 pounds. This is the smaller vase in the same line, thus my lower price for it.

The vase stands 7 3/4 inches tall x 5 1/2 inches wide at its widest point midway up the vase. This vase is part of the Rosenthal-Netter line of imported Italian pottery and ceramics.


The pattern on this Aldo Londi creation is called Spagnolo which is the Italian word for Spanish. According to Mark Hall in his recent book on Italian Mid-century pottery, this line was inspired by Moorish tiles.  The form is a traditional Italian form but the decoration is pure Mid-century.


Good vintage condition but there is some damage which is why I marked it as is. On the underside of the lip of the top rim, there is one small area where the glaze has flaked off.  The body of the pottery is not damaged but the glaze flake is evident. I never repair or touch up my items so you may if you wish.


This vase without damage is valued at over 100 pounds in Mark HIll's recent book on Mid-century Italian pottery. With the glaze flake I am happy to pass it along for a little more than what I paid.


The bottom carries a standard Bitossi mark. The shape number 27071.  The word Italy is impressed in the base. The original owner added many small felt pads around the edge and larger ones to the middle to protect the surface upon which this candleholder sat.

Terry Crider started his glasswork in 1976. He is self taught. This studio glass artist has put out a limited amount of work over the past 36 years. He uses NO MOLDS and his only help has been his wife Donna who was responsible for all the finish work on the pieces. I had an email from Terry and Donna a few years ago stating that he doesn't think it would be fair to the collectors to make any of the same things again. They have decided, if they do make glass again, they are not going to make anything that they have made in the past. He made glass part time from 1988-2000. 


In 2005, he began again to produce a limited amount of glass. He's a great artist with VERY few early pieces out there. This toothpick is in mint condition and is signed Crider 1978. 


This Crider pale white opal base glass features an early vertical pulled lines decoration. The pulled lines are in a lavender purple glass which is also used to case the interior of the piece . It is totally iridized. It's hard to imagine the amount of work that went into this beautiful, hand made toothpick holder.


This little toothpick holder stands about 2 1/2 to 2 3/4  inches high at its highest point. It is a fantastic piece of American art glass! It is in perfect condition. It is signed Crider 1978. 


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)  From the Martelé line, this 4 inch tall x 8 1/4 inch long x 3 5/8 inches wide Olives vase made by the Consolidated Glass Company of Coraopolis PA is an example of the Reuben line.  It is decorated with a very light blue ceramic wash, highlighting the frosted glass olives, vines, and leaves.  In 1933, while Consolidated was closed due to union difficulties (April 2, 1932 - March 1936), Kenneth Haley moved many of the molds belonging to his famous father Reuben Haley over to the Phoenix Glass Company where Kenneth worked.  There, he produced glass from these molds and used finishes of the Phoenix Glass Company instead of the finishing techniques of the Consolidated Glass Company. These were part of a line he called the Reuben Line in honor of his father who died in 1933.  The Reuben line carries its own paper label:  a yellow paper oval with the words Phoenix and REUBEN-LINE at the bottom of the label.


This vase is very heavy, a substantial piece of glass. It is in excellent condition with regards to its staining and color. However, there is a 1/4 inch flake on one side of the top rim (see photo) . 


It is great American Art Deco art glass. Add it to your Art Deco or Consolidated glass collection today.


Come learn more about this glass at the Phoenix & Consolidated Glass Collectors Club website: www.pcgcc.org  Each of the four glasses in this set stands6 7/8 inches tall x 2 1/2 inches across the top.  Each holds 16 ounces.  Each has frosted glass on the sides and a clear bottom.  Each is signed with the F in the shield mark of the Federal Glass Company.


There are three different decorations visible on this set of four. Two have a pear, cherry, orange over a cluster of grapes. One has pineapple slices and three cherries over an orange slice over a basket of berries. The third variation is a lime and a lime slice over strawberries and cherries over a lemon slice over some leaves and a grapefruit and slice.


What a fun funky and festive set of glasses.  Wipe up a pitcher of sangria or just some iced tea, grab a tray and head for the patio or veranda. All are in excellent condition with strong colors and no damage to the silkscreened designs.  Price is for the set.

 Alvino Bagni (1919-2000) founded Bagni Ceramiche in Lastra a Signa in August 1946. During the 1950s and 1960s he worked closely with Irving Richards of Raymor, the American distributor, as well as with their competitor, Rosenthal-Netter. The United States became Bagni’s largest market with over 80 percent of the company’s production going there. Thousands of modern designs were produced over four decades. Though it is not possible to categorize Bagni’s work easily, the wax-resist technique, impressed geometric shapes, mottled brown or green glazes and high-relief geometric forms applied to the surface are hallmarks of his work. Many designs were also glossily glazed in bright colors in simple stylized patterns such as banding or swirling lines. (Mark Hill, Alla Moda). 


Red clay was used from the late 1940s-1950s, before a finer white clay was used. Bagni considered his "Sea Garden" design to be his version of Londi’s Rimini Blu design. The factory closed in 1992.


As far as signatures, production destined for Raymor or Rosenthal-Netter was often marked in different ways. The first and most common Bagni for Raymor mark is a painted mark comprised of an ‘R’ for Raymor, followed by a three or four digit number. This number is probably Raymor’s internal stock number. The second way is a Raymor paper label printed with ‘BAG’ and a similar number. Some Bagni pieces for Rosethal-Netter were marked with two digits, followed by a slash, followed by two digits. This was often accompanied by a paper label (Mark Hill, Alla Moda, page 216)


This Bagni vase is signed 30/3 Italy. The underglaze is done is a crackled glaze, an imitation of a famous Chinese glaze, and the predominant color of the glaze is a white with a spiral pattern of green, turquoise and cobalt blue rectangles. The inside is the same green used on the outside.. It is in excellent vintage shape with the exception of two pinpoint flakes to the glaze on the top rim. There is no damage to the body under the missing part of the glaze. All in all, it is in very good vintage shape for its 40 years.


The vase stands 8  inches tall x 5 inches at its widest point. Add it to your collecton of Midcentury Italian pottery, Raymor or Bagni today.

Made by well-known Californian glass artist David Salazar, this contemporary art glass toothpick holder is one of the few David made that is based on the 2009 NTHCS Convention holder. David Salazar got his start with the Zephyr Studios  before working at Lundberg Glass Studios in the early 1970s and went out on his own around 1983. He is particularly well known for his Moon & Star pattern as well as his paperweights and marbles. This example is signed and dated 7-10 Salazar.


This toothpick holder stands 2 3/8 inches tall and is 1 3/16 inches across the top rim.  The base glass is clear but it has been sprayed with mineral salts in the tradition of Art Nouveau Tiffany or Steuben glass.  The resulting surface has overtones of purple, blue, rose and gold. The design of swirls is known as the King Tut pattern.  It is in excellent condition.  A great example of great glass by a great contemporary glass artist.

For more info on toothpick holders as a great collectible, visit the National Toothpick Holder Collectors Society web page at (www.nthcs.org)  This amberina art glass footed toothpick holder stands  2 15/16 inches tall.  It has what is known as a Lazy Amberina portion wherein the division between the amber glass and the heat-sensitive red glass is not delineated neatly but flows further down on one side than the other.


The color is a deeper brownish amber than what Phoenix Glass company produced. As well, the foot does not have the continuation of the optic pattern of the body.  


It is my best guess that this piece is of European origin, most likely English or French.


In any case, it is a beautiful piece of Victorian art glass. The holder is in excellent condition with no chip, flakes, or cracks. There are some small bubbles in the glass body but it was manufactured that way.

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 #4011 shape piece is decorated in the 1510G decoration: the Rose decoration with Gold. It is not signed by the decorator. Two large open pink roses and one pinkish-gray rose are flanked by two half open roses.  There is a gold rim band around the neck of the piece.  The vase measures 6 inches tall. On the bottom of the vase is the word hand-painted in black paint, though it is a bit faded but still legible.

This toothpick is in mint condition and is signed with Crider on the bottom and the year 1986.


This Crider toothpick holder is hand blown glass - it features his King Tut decoration on an dark emerald green base glass.  The dark green of the base glass makes the iridized surface really stand out. Terry Crider himself indicated to me in an e-mail that he made fewer than 20 examples of this particular shade of green!

Melvin Casper and his mother, Peggy Jamieson, founded the Merritt Island Pottery in 1937, after moving there from Chicago. They built the pottery out of planks milled from pine trees cut on the property. In 1937 there was no electricity on the island and so the first pottery was unglazed. Melvin spent a few years in China with General Stillwell during World War II but returned to continue making pottery on Merritt Island. He remains there today, teaching and making pottery, at 84 a master potter, hardened by the fire of World War II and glazed by the beauty of Merritt Island. He came to Merritt Island in the mid-1930s with his stepmother, Esther Peg Jamison, who also was an artist. The two traveled to Florida just after he graduated from the Chicago Art Institute, where he had studied drawing, painting and pottery. They came to the isolated barrier island in Brevard County to live with his uncle, an ornithologist.


''There were lots of birds here, thousands of mosquitoes and only nine people,'' Casper said. ''My mother and I opened this shop in 1937 and became the first potters in Florida. People came in boats to buy our pottery. There were no books to be had on the subject in those days, so ours was one big experiment. But we survived anyway.''


Melvin Casper died in 2001.


This pot or vase stands 3 1/4 inches tall and is 3 5/8 inches across the top.  It is wheel-thrown and glazed with a mocha overglaze over the reddish brown underglaze.  Bands are incised into the lower part of the vase.  It is hand inscribed Merritt Island Pottery.  I don't know if this is a 1930s piece or a Mid-century piece. I DO know it is a gorgeous piece of 20th century Florida and American studio pottery.

 Mats Jonasson Målerås is Sweden’s largest privately owned glassworks. Today it primarily produces art glass and decorative glass, which mainly is cut, painted and engraved.  However, in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Jonasson's animal sculptures gained visibility, and designer/engraver Mats Jonasson made a name for himself on a wide front. This is said to be one of the reasons that Kosta Boda bought Målerås Glassworks in 1977.


When the purchase was completed, however, Mats Jonasson stipulated that glass he designed could be made only at Målerås. Mats was born and raised in Målerås, and that is where he learned to be an engraver.


The first figural is of a bird. It stands 3 inches tall.  As you can tell from the photos, it is made of dichroic glass.  According to Wikipedia, Dichroic glass is glass containing multiple micro-layers of metals or oxides which give the glass dichroic optical properties. The main characteristic of dichroic glass is that it has a particular transmitted color and a completely different reflected color, as certain wavelengths of light either pass through or are reflected. This causes an array of color to be displayed. The colors shift depending on the angle of view. Dichroic glass is an example of thin-film optics. The bird is signed on the bottom with an acid stamped mark.


The elephant stands 4 inches tall to the tip of its trunk.  It is signed in an etched signature, hard to read but it says Maleras.


I love the fact that in the daylight or under flourescent lighting the glass is blue, but under normal incandescent lights the glass is a lovely shade of purple.  


Add both pieces to your Swedish glass or Mid-century glass collection today. I bought them both very reasonably, thus the reasonable price.  Price if for the pair.


Both are in excellent condition and ready for home or collection today.

Corning had a longtime connection to France so it is not surprising that they featured a line highlighting the interest in French cooking and culture.  In fact, Amory Houghton Sr, one of the prominent Houghton family executives of Corning had served as an ambassador to France through the 1950s.


These shakers were not produced by Corning but for Corning by the Gemco firm. The bottoms are milk glass and the tops are plastic painted a silver color to look like chrome.  They carry the Spice O' Life design as they were an official go-along to the line.

Add them to your Midcentury or Vermont pottery collection today.  Born in Florence on October 1, 1915, Marcello Fantoni registered at the Institute of Art at Porta Romana in 1927 to attend the course, "The Art of Ceramics",  which at that time was taught by the ceramist Carlo Guerrini, artistic director of the Cantagalli factory. Other teachers also contributed to his artistic formation including Libero Andreotti and Bruno Innocenti in sculpture and Gianni Vagnetti in the figure. He graduated in '34 as a 'maestro' of art, and began working as a ceramist. In 1936, after having worked for a few months as the artistic director of a factory in Perugia, he established himself in the stables of Villa Fabbricotti in Florence and established the Fantoni Ceramic studio. Its production of serial and unique pieces had remarkable success at the Florentine Arts and Crafts Exhibit in '37, revealing itself in line with the most recent tendencies, so much so that at the beginning of hostilities his production had already received notable artistic and commercial attention in Italy and abroad. 


After the war years, when Fantoni was involved in the resistance, in '46 he began the creative and productive fervor that will allow him to enlarge his company, reaching at the beginning of the next decade the impressive size of over fifty collaborators. Among his employees there were many students who, in ceramics and other fields, would become excellent artisans and even famous artists. In the following decades, especially between 1950 and 1970, the success of his work continued to increase, his unique pieces of sculpture and vascular formations, characterized 

by a design in step with the contemporary artistic currents, like archaic stylization inspired by Etruscan models, rendered modern because of their modern handling of materials, glazes and colors.


For this original spirit of modernity, his works entered in private collections and in the most important museums of the world: in the United States his works can be seen at the Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York, the Brooklyn Museum, the Museum of Fine Art of Boston, the Currier Gallery, the Syracuse Museum. In Britain they are in the Victoria and Albert Museum of London, the City Art Gallery 

of Manchester, at Royal Scottish Museum of Edinburg. In Japan they are present at the Museum of Modern Art of Tokyo and Kyoto. In Italy they are represented at the International Museum of Ceramics in Faenza, the National Bargello Museum and at the Gabinetto Disegni e Stampe of the Uffizi. In his long and versatile career, Fantoni has completed works for churches, public and private buildings, schools, cinemas, theaters and ships cementing himself in both figurative and abstract ceramics and various metals, and qualifying himself also in the field of medalism. In 1970 he founded the International School of Ceramic Arts at his laboratory in via Bolognese in Florence where he continues to work and teach. 


This Fantoni 1970s piece is painted with a blended glaze approach whereby colors run and blend into each other, sometimes referred to as graduated glazes.  This vase is typical of Fantoni’s primitive style, with its archaic glaze and form.  It is also tied closely with the studio pottery movement, which Fantoni was part of and to which he paid attention. It represents the more commercial side of his work (Mark Hill, Alla Moda, page 144)


This vase stands 12 1/2 inches high x 5 inches wide at its widest point.  The glazes starts at the top in a mustard yellow, then shades or orange, chocolate brown, more orange with a mustard yellow base. The mustard yellow overglaze was poured over the piece created a volcanic or blended glaze which dripped down over the other colors. On the black glazed base, it is signed Fantoni Italy for Raymor in white letters. It is in excellent condition. Add it to your Midcentuy Italian pottery, Raymor, or Fantonin collection today.  Alvino Bagni (1919-2000) founded Bagni Ceramiche in Lastra a Signa in August 1946. During the 1950s and 1960s he worked closely with Irving Richards of Raymor, the American distributor, as well as with their competitor, Rosenthal-Netter.  The United States became Bagni’s largest market with over 80  percent of the company’s production going there.  Thousands of modern designs were produced over four decades.  Though it is not possible to categorize Bagni’s work easily, the wax-resist technique, impressed geometric shapes, mottled brown or green glazes and high-relief geometric forms applied to the surface are hallmarks of his work. Many designs were also glossily glazed in bright colors in simple stylized patterns such as banding or swirling lines. (Mark Hill, Alla Moda). 


Red clay was used from the late 1940s-1950s, before a finer white clay was used. Bagni considered his "Sea Garden" design to be his version of Londi’s Rimini Blu design. The factory closed in 1992.


As far as signatures, production destined for Raymor or Rosenthal-Netter was often marked in different ways.  The first and most common Bagni for Raymor mark is a painted mark comprised of an ‘R’ for Raymor, followed by a three or four digit number. This number is probably Raymor’s internal stock number. The second way is a Raymor paper label printed with ‘BAG’ and a similar number. Some Bagni pieces for Rosethal-Netter were marked with two digits, followed by a slash, followed by two digits. This was often accompanied by a paper label (Mark Hill, Alla Moda, page 216)


This Bagni vase is signed R 2720 Raymor Italy.  The underglaze is done is a crackled glaze, an imitation of a famous Chinese glaze, and the predominant color of the glaze is a rich blue, reminiscent of Rimini Blu.  A rich green color is also used to form the bird’s body and the dors which appear to be flowers as they are next to branches done in dark blue. It is in good vintage shape but there are rwo small nicks to the underside of the top rim (see photo).

Like the Morgantown Crinkle line , it features highly textured surface. What distiniguishes the Lido line is that the pattern does not go all the way up to the rim of the glass.  It came in colors of Aquamarine, Avocado, Crystal, Honey Gold, Laser Blue, and Spicy Brown.


Anchor Hocking produced the "Milano" pattern from 1959 to 1963. The pattern name was then changed to "Lido" because subsequently the molds were remade by the Zanesville Mold Company in Ohio, a newly acquired Anchor Hocking Corporation subsidiary. The difference between the molds resulted in the `Milano' pattern name changing to "Lido." Although the two patterns are similar, the "Milano" pattern has a distinctive and more defined "crinkle" than "Lido". "Milano" was produced in Forest Green and Crystal only.  


Each one of this trio of tumblers stands 5 1/4 inches tall x 2 7/8 inch top diameter and holds 12 ounces. All three are in Crystal.  Made for cold drinks of ice tea, kool-aid, or lemonade, they are easy to grip and look great. A practical retro vintage design ready for your kitchen today. Price is for the set.

It is from the 1960-1962 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 1534, 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 Chanticleer. Its original 1964 price was $3.00. This was designed by Gloria Gil.


It features a happy Rooster crowing. The cobalt and white glazed used for color on this piece pop because the background was unfired.


The back of the trivet/plaque has a wire hanger which was embedded in the pottery. It retains only one of the four original rubber feet which protect the flat surface upon which one sets it. They are however easily still found if you want to use it as a trivet.  It is signed 1532 and has the spark mark on the forearm inside a rectangle made up of COOPERATIVE DESIGN and BENNINGTON POTTERS VERMONT. This is a transition mark used only in the 19690-1962 time period. 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.

Shown on page 100 of the new revised Mauzy 2004 Pyrex book, this is the #402 bowl in the beloved and popular 400 bowl set. What sets this bowl apart is that is from the very rare 1954 Opal set.
