There WAS reconstituted orange juice available.  For that, a household needed a container to hold the orange juice.  


Here is a7 1/2 inch tall (to the lip of the bottle). decanter decorated with oranges around the bottom of the sides and orange leaves and blossoms around the middle.  When the lid is on, it stands  almost 8 1/2 inches tall.

I love the mod flower power design of this set.  On an avocado green background we have turquoise-centered flowers. Each of the petals of the flowers is done using negative space, that is, leaving the white underglaze showing.  Funky and artistic both.

The P series dates from 1957-1971 when it was replaced by the A series which ended in 1988.


This set of four P-43-B Petite Pans was made between 1963 and 1970. They were sold in groups of two or four, with no cover or a plastic cover. For a very brief period of time, Corning sold a glass Petite Pan lid as a replacement for the plastic lid. The glass covers are extremely difficult to find! I am selling this set of four pans with ONE cover.


They are marked RANGE-OVEN-MICROWAVE.   They each hold 2 3/4 cups.  They are shown on page 24 of Coroneos' 2006 guide titled The Complete Guide to Corning Ware & Visions Cookware.

Katherine Nelson.


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 turquoise blue glaze which is  and 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. 


Add it to your Ballard or American Art 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 dark gray. 


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.  This set of 5 retro funky and very practical tall tumblers come from the 1950s-1970s. I don't know how made them but they had a good eye for design and a sense of flair.


Each 6 5/8 inch tall tumbler has a frosted background onto which very stylized snowflakes have been placed. Part of each snowflake is created by the use of negative space, leaving the clear design below to show.  There are three pink and three white diamonds separating the frosted portion from the clear top portion.


All glasses in this set are in excellent vintage condition.

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-1980’s, 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.

Gemco was a company which operated from 1948 to 2003. 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.  Sometimes one also finds a a W on top of the G on smaller pieces as on these shakers. The W most probably stands for WARE as the line was formally known as Gemco Ware.


This salt and pepper set matches the Crazy Daisy pattern by Corelle. 


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. The chrome tops are in great shape.   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.

"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."


These funky and celebratory coasters carries the words "Here's to You" and "Congratulation & Best Wishes".  They are 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.  


 This early vintage Pyrex red measuring cup features a font in red  not seen on more modern versions. It also has a different pouring lip than the commonly found versions.  It carries the shape number #508 C-12 and holds one cup.

Mt. Washington tomato salt blackberry leaves  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)


Bagni's Hallmark Design was the "Sea Garden" line. The line started in 1960 and was inspired by ocean flora and fauna.  The semi-matte, dripped, and mottled brown, green, blue, and beige colors are different on each piece. During the 1970 the tones became lighter due to a change in the law restricting certain chemicals integral to the original Sea Garden glaze. 


This 9 5/8 inch wide Sea Garden bowl is from the 1960-1970 period as it has the deep colors of the original glaze. 

The low bowl has graceful sloping sides. It is in excellent condition. Fill it with fruit or nuts or any holiday decoration. Add it to your Italian Mid-century or Raymor pottery collection today  Set of 4 Midcentury retro vintage Anchor Hocking Lido aquamarine 5 ounce juice glasses. 


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.  In the Lido pattern the crinkle pattern does not extend all the way to the top of the glass. There is a clear rim at the very top.


Set of 4 Midcentury retro vintage Anchor Hocking Lido aquamarine 5 ounce juice glasses.  Made for cold drinks of orange juice, ice tea, kool-aid, or lemonade, it is easy to grip and looks great. A practical retro vintage design ready for your kitchen today.

Sturdy, dependable, dishwasher-friendly, it is ready for your kitchen table today.  The Seneca Glass Company operated from 1891 to 1983. The original factory was in Fostoria, Ohio (built, then vacated by Fostoria). Some time later, a new factory was built along the Monongahela River in Morgantown, West Virginia. Seneca's factory was next to the Morgantown Glass Works and two doors down from Beaumont Glass. This proximity led to the companies "borrowing" designs from one another and at times making or decorating glass for each other. The full name Driftwood Casual is often shortened to Driftwood.


Driftwood Casual is available in a rainbow of colors, though not all pieces will be found in every color. Official colors names are Accent Red, Amber, Buttercup (later called Yellow), Charm Blue, Cinnamon (sometimes called Brown), Crystal, Delphine Blue, Gray, Heather, Lime Green, Moss Green, Peacock Blue, Plum, and Ritz Blue.


This is a set of the Amber Driftwood Casual 5 1/8" tall 12 ounces Hi-Ball glasses.  This is an interesting color as the glass has darker coloration in the base due to the thickness of the glass.

Some time later, a new factory was built along the Monongahela River in Morgantown, West Virginia. Seneca's factory was next to the Morgantown Glass Works and two doors down from Beaumont Glass. This proximity led to the companies "borrowing" designs from one another and at times making or decorating glass for each other. The full name Driftwood Casual is often shortened to Driftwood.


Driftwood Casual is available in a rainbow of colors, though not all pieces will be found in every color. Official colors names are Accent Red, Amber, Buttercup (later called Yellow), Charm Blue, Cinnamon (sometimes called Brown), Crystal, Delphine Blue, Gray, Heather, Lime Green, Moss Green, Peacock Blue, Plum, and Ritz Blue.


This is a set of the Amber Driftwood Casual 5 1/8" tall 12 ounces Hi-Ball glasses.  This is an interesting color as the glass has darker coloration in the base due to the thickness of the glass.


The set is in excellent condition and ready for your Mad Men rec room or bar today.  Whether you use them on your patio or terrace or in your swanky living room, you can Gg green and save resources and purchase a piece of America's past. Sturdy, dependable, dishwasher-friendly, it is ready for your kitchen table today.


See more photos at bottom of listing.  This vintage Pyrex silver band decorated creamer and sugar features a black plastic stopper on each piece with a wood grain finish in the center.  Each is marked PYREX MADE IN U.S.A on the bottom.  I have seen a 10 cup beverage server that matches these so it was most likely part of a set.  


Each piece stands 3 7/8 inches tall. They would go great with your Mad Men Dorothy Thorpe roly poly bar glasses.

These vintage Harlequin pieces are getting much harder to find.

Not only were there ashtrays everywhere, but there was some delicious grapes on the dining room table. Not real grapes, mind you. But funky acrylic, yup, plastic grapes drilled and attached to a driftwood (also plastic).  Lovely to look at just don't eat them!


I see these in many current TV ads in the background. There are two types in this 22 grape cluster. Clear amber but also swirled translucent amber grapes.


It is ready for your rec room coffee table or your Midcentury dining room table.

Taylor & Ng 1979 Elephants Orgy mug, designed by San Francisco potter and enamelist Win Ng and his partner in their consumer goods business. 


The mug was Made in Japan but sold in San Francisco. This is part of his large Orgy series featuring different animals in compromising poses. The mug is done in a white color and the bears are outlined in a blue color.


There is a signautre of Taylor & Ng on the side of the mug. Signed and dated 1979. On the bottom is a large circular mark stating:  JAPAN. It is in good vintage condition with no scratches to the colored parts, chips or cracks. However, there is staining in the inside, some glaze crazing near the handle and an area on the bottom where a chip but is was glazed over. This was probably sold as a second. I have priced the mug for condition.


These mugs are quite collectible on the West Coast.


Go green! Save resources and purchase a piece of America's past. Sturdy, dependable, dishwasher-friendly, it is ready for your kitchen table today.  This Royal Haeger Orange Peel vase stands 5 1/2 inches high. It is one of the smaller pieces in the line, though not easy to find.


Part of the 1976 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.


The original felt on bottom with impressed Haeger mark is 90% there on the bottom. Otherwise, excellent condition on the vase.


Add it to your Royal Haeger or Midcentury pottery collection today.  This is a great ice tub and set of 5 glasses in a simple yet stunning design.  The pieces have horizontal white stripes at the bottom and red vertical stripes at the top of each piece.  


It is ready for your Mad Men retro vintage rec room or bar now.  Fill up the ice tub and mix up some great vintage cocktails.  


One of the 3 1/4 inch tall glasses has some wear to its top red stripes. The rest are in good shape.  The ice tub measures 5 1/2 inches tall x 5 inches wide.


Add this set to your barware collection today.  Produced by the Morgantown Glass Company  in the period when they were known as the Morgantown Glass Guild which started in 1933, this is a set of 6 2 3/4 inch tall x 3 1/2 inch wide sherbets  in the Shamrock Green color.  Each holds 6 ounces. This line in transparant colors started in the 1950s.


By 1958, it had been renamed the Decor line, which was the brainchild of J. Richard Haden who along with his brother Samuel K. took over the business from their father Joseph Haden.  In 1958, the first Decor by Morgantown" catalog was published.


However, when the Carbone Company of Boston, one of the major national Importers assumed the line as their own in the early  Sixties, the line became known as Crinkle. This line can be seen and is well presented on pages 214-215 of Jerry Gallagher's Handbook of Old Morgantown Glass (1995).


This set of 6  footed sherbets is in the Shamrock Green color, one of the harder colors to find in this line.  It is in excellent condition and ready to join your Mid-century home as you serve a fresh fruit salad or pudding (Yes! Pudding!)  on the veranda or patio (such great mid century terms). Price is for the set of 6.

This Noritake Art Deco bud vase stands 4 1/4 inches tall. It is a fairly common piece and a simple Noritake design which maximizes the abstract and stylized chevron design created by simple black lines on a slight cream color background. The color of the vase is a rich red with orange highlights in it. This color was made very popular by the Tangee Company in its face powder line. The top rim is trimmed in black. 


It is signed with the green wreath mark putting it in the transtition period between older Nippon and the 1925-1931 red wreath mark period. It is in very good vintage condition.  It is shown in both the Van Patten and Spain book.


Add it to your Noritake Art Deco collection today.  This is a striking Bitossi Italy Rosenthal-Netter large vase designed by Aldo Londi in 1974. The vase stands 10 inches tall x 7 1/2 inches wide at its widest point and a circumference of 23 inches. 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. When tapped, it rings solidly.  Original Rosenthal-Netter paper label with the words Made in Italy stamped on one side and the numbers 266/2.  I have two other pieces from this line with labels. All have the line number of 266/. I have to conclude that the 2 is the shape number and the 266 is the number for Moderna Marocco.


In the Mark Hill book, the 10 inch version of this rare vase on page 72 is valued at 300-500 pounds. My price is a bit more reasonable.


Add it to your Italian Midcentury pottery collection today.  Done by Lincoln Vermont potter Marcy Mayforth, this 1986 signed blue Sleeping Duck vase is glazed in a periwinkle blue inside. The design is done in the sgraffito technique, then filled in as in an enamel piece. There is a sleeping duck on the piece  in two shades of blue. It is a rather abstract representation of the duck. It is signed Mayforth on the bottom with her last name and the dates '86. It is in excellent shape. Add it to your Vermont Art Pottery collection today.  This Taylor & Ng mottled surface bamboo handle teapot was designed by San Francisco potter and enamelist Win Ng and his partner in their consumer goods business. 


I would estimate that the teapot holds 6 cups.  The surface is a high gloss glaze, perhaps even a crystal glaze over a mottled underglaze. The handle is bamboo with wrapped bamboo accents.  On the bottom it has a paper label which states simply Taylor & Ng Japan.


It is in excellent condition with no damage visible.  The top has no damage and closes tightly.


This gorgeous example of Japanese work is ready for your home.  Go green! Save resources and purchase a piece of the past. It is ready for your home today.

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.

 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.


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)

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.

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.

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.
