This listing is for the hard cover book, The Birthday Surprise, Volume 17 in Raggedy Ann and Andy's Grow-and-Learn Library. It has 44 pages with large print and color illustrations on each page. This was copyrighted by Macmillan, Inc. in 1988, and published by Lynx Books. The characters and drawings are based on the creations of Johnny Gruelle.  The book is preowned and gently used. The cover is intact with only faint marks. The pages of the book are intact and mostly in excellent condition, though one of them has faint pencil scribbling across the picture, though it does not prevent reading the page or a good view of picture. The book is meant for a young child to read, though it is also good to read to a child. In this book the dolls plan a birthday surprise for the Camel with Wrinkled Knees when he is at the park. Babbette almost forgets about the flowers for the Camel's party and surprise when she spots a butterfly. She is counted on, and the book teaches about being dependable. When the people are away the dolls, stuffed animals, and young animals come to life and talk and interact with one another in drawings like classical ones. Its ISBN 10 number is 1558021175.  Tonner 2012 Decadence doll outfit, No. T12PROF02, fits 16 inch Precarious fashion dolls. It also fits Antoinette, Cami, Jon, and other dolls with this Antoinette doll body and higher arch high heel feet. This set contains a painted gold cotton canvas dress with attached lame halter, gold painted cotton gauntlets, a beige pink lame belt with rhinestone buckle, rhinestone earrings,, beige pink sparkle tights, and beige pink imitation leather strappy platform shoes. Limited edition of 300. New and mint in the box. The price is for the outfit only and does not include the doll modeling it.

It also has it's little Fire King pamphlet with it. It is all in very good condition- no chips or cracks and little use. The candle was lit and has melted.  If you plan to use the candle warmer you would probably have to replace the candle. The metal holder has a few age discolorations on it- nothing major- just noted. The Box is in good condition. I have a similar item (#5705) also in stock currently- that Casserole is round rather than oval. Great find! See all  photos for a good visual description!  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. I had email from Terry and Donna 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 stopped blowing glass around 1990 and didn't start blowing again until 1999. This toothpick is in mint condition and is signed with Crider on the bottom with no date.  Judging by the base glass color and the pulled feather treatment, I will put it between 1977-1981.


This Crider toothpick holder is hand blown glass - it features his early Pulled Feather decoration on an amethyst base glass. What makes it special and hard to find is the applied glass threaded applied to it, applied by his wife Donna who did all the finish work on the pieces. It's hard to imagine the amount of work that went into this beautiful, hand made toothpick holder. 


This little toothpick holder stands about 1 5/8 inches high at its highest point and 2 inches wide at top. It is a fantastic piece of art glass! It is in perfect condition.

Shown in the 1929 catalog reprint on page 32 and page 34 of Jack Wilson's 1989 book, this is the #1113 7 1/4 inch bread and butter plate in the yellow wash color, sometimes called honey yellow by collectors. These hard to find plates feature the swirls and uneven hand tooled rims that make this line so distinctive.


The Catalonian line was made from 1927 to most likely 1932 when the plant closed. It is not known if the line continued after the plant reopened in March 1936. 


It is in excellent condition. Add it to your Art Deco or Consolidated glass collection today.

It is in excellent condition with a good wash on it.  Made by the Anchor Hocking Company in the 1960s, the Lido line is yet another of the popular crinkle glassware so prevalent at the time. 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 set of tumblers stands 5 1/4 inches tall x 2 7/8 inch top diameter and holds 12 ounces. There are two in Crystal and two in Honey Gold.   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.  MAD MEN MAN CAVE, here we come!

There are two thin red bands on the top and the bottom of the glass.

A useful feature is on the side where their is a drink measure table ranging from 1 oz. - 12 oz. It is in great shape and ready for your Mad Men Man Cave.

Price is for the set.  These funky and highly collectibles mixing bowls were sold as a set in three sizes. They were made in Dallas, Texas by the Texas Ware Plastics & Manufacturing Company and are so marked in embossed letters on the bottom of each bowl. 


The largest bowl, the #125 measures 11 1/4 inches across and stands 5 1/4 inches tall. The middle bowl #118 measures 9 3/4 inches across and stands 4 1/2 inches tall. The smallest bowl #111 measures 8 inches across and stands 4 inches tall.


This is the Texas Ware #111 light pink speckled mixing bowl in good vintage condition. Its main shade is a light almost salmon pink with secondary inclusions of purple and varying shades of darker pink.  It is unusual for a Texas Ware bowl to have so few colors.  It has light wear in its center with strong gloss at the very center. Buy it and use it. Gorgeous glossy finish on the outside too. FREE of chips, cracks, burns OR discoloration. Use wooden utensils and it will give you years of service. You will NOT be disappointed!!


It is marked only with the shape number 111, but I guarantee it to be a Texas Ware bowl.


Recently one has seen a Texas Ware vintage speckled Melmac bowl on the counter of Rachael Ray's TV kitchen. In fact, in late 2007, Food Network is now having produced and marketing a "Garbage Bowl" in a deep pumpkin color under the Rachael Ray name. Crate & Barrel has also put out a set of melmac bowls, but they just can't compare to the originals!  The Culver Glass company began in Brooklyn, New York in 1939, founded by Irving Rothenberg.  Culver Glass features real 22-karat gold decoration, used effusively and magnificently especially from the late 1950s on through the 1960s. 


 It stands  4 3/4 inches tall and is 5 3/4 inches across the top.


This pattern is known as Prado Green and features three vertical rows of embossed squares of gold with alternating squares of textured green. There is a border of gold embossed diamonds at the top of the pattern.  It is in excellent vintage shape and comes with a pair of ice tongs found with it when I purchased it.

Make some ice cubes in those vintage metal trays!  Measuring 4 1/4 inches wide, this bowl by Mid-Century enamelist Harold Tischler clearly shows the influence of Edward Winter. Like Winter, he studied at the Vienna Kunstgewerbeschule from 1927 to 1932 under such greats as Michael Powolny and Josef Hoffman. In fact, It is Tischler who is credited with getting Edward Winter accepted into the school, according to the information on page 275 of the Painting with Fire exhibit companion catalog produced the the Long Beach Museum of Art, whose groundbreaking seminal exhibit opened in January 2007.


In 1935, Tischler visited Winter in Cleveland. During the visit he saw Winter's signature enameling method of immersing the metal in liquid enamel to achieve better coating than simply sifting powdered enamel on the surface. Tischler quickly also adopted this methold which accounts for the similarity in design between the two men's works.


His work was featured in the 1970 Edward Winter book called Enamel Painting Techniques. He died in 1993 at age 100. 


This piece features pink ground with striations of gold on its front. The back is counter-enameled in robin's egg blue and is signed in white block letters H. Tischler. It is in excellent condition.

It is easy to drink from this creamy white porcelain mug because of its thick, round, smooth-lipped design.  The six ounces of coffee stay hot because of the superior construction.  Each genuine Victor coffee mug [Victor is imprinted on the bottom of each] weighs more than a pound and is made of the finest fired clay porcelain.  This excellent mug is virtually indestructible and remains the classic and easily recognized shape so sought after by collectors worldwide.

 

History will show that because of the Victor Insulator’s simple, yet immensely functional design, the Victor mug was imitated into extinction.  Mr. Nelson McKee, a fourth generation company employee, now Sales Manager of Victor Insulators, Inc. stated "We made the decision to no longer manufacture coffee mugs when it became apparent that people would rather pay a low price for inferior quality than a fair price for superior quality."


Each mug stands 3 1/4 inches high x 3 1/8 wide at the top rim. It is decorated with a dark green double band at the top and a matching stripe on the handle. Excellent condition.

Shown on page 163 of the new revised Mauzy 2004 Pyrex book, pattern was called Colonial Mist. A four bowl set can be seen on page 108. 


This is the largest bowl in the 4 bowl set.  The shape was referred to as a Cinderella bowl. Cinderella bowls were introduced in 1958 as an alternative to batter bowls. One could pour from either side. The price in Mauzy's book for a complete 4 bowl set is $55-75.  Usually the larger the bowl the more value when they are sold individually.  So, my price is very reasonable for this bowl. 


This deep blue Colonial Blue paint is in incredible condition  The white silkscreened flower band around the middle of the piece is also in excellent condition.  The inside has some wear on the sides where the other bowls in the set would have rubbed against it.  It is a bowl to buy and use or just display on a shelf as the exterior is in excellent vintage condition.

 The condition is excellent overall. The #401 is excellent. I purchased it of ebay. The #402 has some wear on it but only when held up to the light. The #403 is excellent. The hard to find $404 has inside knife wear and a wear to the outside but displays well. If you have a 50s kitchen, this set is for you. The price is reasonable especially as Mauzy prices the set in the $100-$120 range. Value of this iconic set will continue to rise I am sure. Add it to your Pyrex or kitchenware collection today. Shipping is $15 inside US and at least $20 internationally depending on which shipping service is chosen.  This pair of shakers was part of the Corelle Living Ware line produced by Corning and marketed to go along with the Pyrex lines so popular in the late 1950s to the 1970s.  Each shaker stands 4 1/2 inches tall and have a black plastic stopper that lets the salt and pepper slip out past the small openings in the bottom of the plastic stopper. Pretty ingenious I think!


The set is shown on page 153 of the 2004 3rd edition of the Mauzy Pyrex Book. It is priced there for $8-10 for the pair. My price is at the bottom end of that range.

"Hand-crafted Pottery Since 1940

Owing to the abundance of ancient clay deposits in the region, Louisville has been a center of pottery-making for generations. Out of this proud tradition, Mary Alice Hadley established one of Louisville’s most iconic and well-known potteries. The story begins in the early 1900’s. Mary Alice Hadley was born into a family of clay tile makers where her knowledge of working with clay first developed. Exhibiting an early interest in art and design, she ultimately became a widely recognized painter, winning numerous awards and acclaim from New York to Los Angeles.


By the late 1930’s Mary Alice Hadley began melding her artistic talent with her knowledge of clay ware. In 1939, Mrs. Hadley made dishes for her houseboat on the Ohio River. The creative result was a set of a custom dishes that caused such a stir among her friends and acquaintances that the idea for a business was born. Supplying those early requests provided wide circulation for her hand-crafted pottery and soon orders began to arrive from across the country. With the help of her husband, George, the Hadley Pottery Company was formed early in 1940.


In 1944, George Hadley purchased a building in the Butchertown area of Louisville as a birthday present for Mary Alice. The building, constructed in 1848, has been home to a wool mill, a candle factory and a cordage mill and for 65 years has served as the production location, factory salesroom and offices of Hadley Pottery Company. Many pieces of original art created by Mary Alice Hadley are still on display at the historic structure on Story Avenue, including several wall murals all hand-painted by Mary Alice herself.


The business prospered, attracting collectors from across the nation and around the world. The warm and whimsical designs that Mary Alice Hadley created have attracted multitudes of fans over the last 70 years and are still finding their way into the hearts of new Hadley Pottery enthusiasts every day. She worked at the Pottery until her death in 1965. George Hadley continued to run the business until it was sold in 1979 to Louisville natives, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth W. Moore. In September 2009, new partners joined the Hadley Pottery ownership group, but operations remain largely the same as they were when the company was started. The creative inspiration that Mary Alice Hadley brought to the ware still lives today."


Each part of this set of four coasters carries the words A VERY HAPPY ANNIVERSARY around a design of a bow with 2 bells hanging from the bow.  Each is signed M.A. Hadley on the reverse.  I don't know if these coasters are vintage or contemporary. You be the judge. I do know they are listed in current inventory on the M. A. Hadley website at $9.75 each.  In addition, I am including this 8 3/4 inch custom message plate.  On the front it has the name DIAINE and on the back the date May 16, 1981 as well as the Hadley signature.  


My price for the group is well below that figure for the set of four.  Price is for the set.  Each piece of the set is in excellent condition.  Each of this set of 6 glasses stands 6 7/8 inches tall and is 2 1/8 inch wide at the mouth.  If you love horses, ponies, Art Deco, funky, Fifties, this set of tall iced tea glasses or zombies is for you.


Each tall glass holds 15 ounces. That's a good amount of Mint Julep, iced tea or lemonade.  Add a tray, a pitcher and get ready for the Kentucky Derby!  Would make a great gift for that girl or guy who loves horses!


Price is for the set.  There was a time in the early 1960s when we looked back to the Colonial Early Americana time for design inspiration.  Earth tones with designs of mushrooms (like the canister set made for Sears), owls, quail, Woodland creatures were one inspiration. Another was Early Americana. 


This Pyrex 401 5 1/2 inch wide bowl is the smallest of the classic 4 bowl mixing bowl set.  The design on this bowl is inspired by the stencil designs in early Colonial homes.  Corning titled this design Homestead.  The background of this bowl is from the Desert Dawn series. The blue design again harkens from the Colonial America use of stenciling to adorn walls.


This bowl is in excellent vintage condition. Don't send it through the dishwasher too many times. Use  wooden utensils if possible and you can add this piece of vintage American glass to your kitchen or home for use or display.

Not signed on the bottom, but one can see the exact same item shown as a Ballard product in the Summer 1953 Vermont Life 6 page article on Stanley Ballard.


The top opening measures 1 inch. I believe this was the earlier mold on this design as the later one is 7/8 inch at the top and stands a little shorter.  The sap bucket on the this the later mold is also a little narrower. 


On the back of this Ballard syrup jug you also have some hand-painted flowers. Quant I say.

His early work carried his full name and the name Cooperative Design when he and other Alfred graduates designed work as a cooperative. After 1960-61, the pieces were marked Bennington Potters.  


This 8 inch tall x 6 inch diameter cylindrical shape vase is from his production period. The top is the most interesting features as it duplicates the asterisk shape he used as part of his trademark, representing the creative "spark" of the potter. This vase came in four sizes and in white, black, and cobalt blue. This high white glossy glaze is as modern today as when it was produced.It is signed with a shape number but it is difficult to read. My guess is that it is 1996.  


This vase might have been sold as a second at the pottery as it doesn't quite sit solidly on a flat surface.  It would look great filled with flowers.  This is the first example of this size vase in the Spark series I have seen.


It is in great shape and a very good example of Gil's design aesthetic. Add it to your MidCentury American Art pottery or Vermont Art Pottery collection today. A great piece of early American Studio Art pottery from a pre-eminent Mid Century designer.


In their 1964 catalogue, Gil described their creations as "Art Objects in the Practical Realm" - Museum Honored, Hand-crafted, Modestly Priced"  This vase is an early version of a vase done in a technique called by Lundberg Studios as encasement vases.  I have seen them also advertising as paperweight vases, but on the Lundberg Studios site, they are simply called crystal encasement vases.


Daniel Salazar started at what would be called Lundberg Studios in 1975.  This 4 3/4 inch tall vase is decorated with a vine and violets vase.  The inside of the piece is iridized which makes the encased flowers float on a gold color surface.  


The piece is correctly signed. On one side of the bottom it states Lundberg Studios 1981. On the other side is Daniel Salazar 11-23-81.

Measuring 5 inches square, this bowl by Mid-Century enamelist Harold Tischler clearly shows the influence of Edward Winter.  Like Winter, he studied at the Vienna Kunstgewerbeschule from 1927 to 1932 under such greats as Michael Powolny and Josef Hoffman.   In fact, It is Tischler who is credited with getting Edward Winter accepted into the school, according to the information on page 275 of the Painting with Fire exhibit companion catalog produced the the Long Beach Museum of Art, whose groundbreaking seminal exhibit opened in January 2007.


In 1935, Tischler visited Winter in Cleveland. During the visit he saw Winter's signature enameling method of immersing the metal in liquid enamel to achieve better coating than simply sifting powdered enamel on the surface. Tischler quickly also adopted this methold which accounts for the similarity in design between the two men's works.


His work was featured in the 1970 Edward Winter book called Enamel Painting Techniques. He died in 1993 at age 100. 


This piece featuresa yellow background. The center has an asymmetrical array of jewels in colors of red, blue, purple, pumpkin orange, and chartreuse on a pink groiund.  The sides have stripes or rays coming from the edge down into the center.  The whole plate was probably striped before the pink center and jewels were applied.  The back is counter-enameled in green and chocolate brown and is signed by incsing the words H. Tischler. It is in fair vintage condition. As often happens with enamel pieces with sharp corners, there is some wear to the back of the piece at the corners and 2-3 chips at the edge of the back. On the front, three of the corners have no damage and one has a slight loss of enamel.  Buy it in not perfect condition and add a piece of Harlold Tischler's work to your collection.  This glass produced by the Imperial Glass Company is designed by iconic American industrial designer Russel Wright.  


According to my Keller/Ross book, all glass lines except for the American Modern line are scarce or rare.  


The Imperial chartreuse iced tea tumbler is listed at $25-$30.  Prices have fallen since the 2000 publication of this book. So, my price for it is less than half of what the book suggests.

Sturdy, dependable, dishwasher-friendly, it is ready for your kitchen table 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 late 1950s time period when Gil used a transition mark which included both the words Design Cooperative and Bennington Vermont and a large arm symbol. 


I recently learned that when Gil decided to mark his works with shape numbers, he started with the number 1300. However, if an earlier design was to remain in production, they marked it with a number starting with 1290. This explains the numbering and mark on the transition pieces.


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


After 1960, they made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware and accessories that were distributed throughout the US and sold in fine department stores.  In their 1964 catalogue, Gil described their creations as "Art Objects in the Practical Realm" - Museum Honored, Hand-crafted, Modestly Priced,"


This fun and funky owl plaque can be seen in the 1964 catalogue as shape #1504.  I believe this particular owl plaque is much earlier as the dimensions of the piece are larger than what is shown in the 1964 catalogue.  


This plaque uses the late 1950s turquoise/teal background glaze.  The highlighting on the owl itself is a dark chocolate borwn.   The back is stamped with a larger version of the Cooperative Design Bennington Vermont mark.  


It is in excellent condition and has the original wire hanger on the back for using it as a plaque.  This mug stands 3 1/4 inches tall and was made by the Federal Glass Company.  I love the slogan on both sides of the coffee mug.
