In the late 1960s the hot colors for decorating one's kitchen included avocado green and harvest gold!


Here we have a great practical set of retro vintage footed handled mugs.  Each mug stands 4 inches tall and holds 10 ounces of liquid.  


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 set was most likely made in Japan to be imported into this country. They most likely had a paper label which is long gone. The quality of the china body is amazing.  Find a great metal period mug stand and add them to your Mid-century Eames-era Mad Men decor today.


Price is for the set.  Go green! Save resources and purchase a piece of America's past. Sturdy, dependable, dishwasher-friendly, it is ready for your kitchen table today.  Hand wash to best protect the fired-on decoration.  Set of 6 Midcentury retro vintage Anchor Hocking Lido Honey Gold #4007 8 ounce Old Fashioned or Rocks 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 6 Midcentury retro vintage Anchor Hocking Lido Honey Gold 8 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.

The blue cornflower which is found on 90 plus pieces of Corning's Pyroceram ware debuted in 1957 and was retired in 1987.  The P series dates from 1957-1971 when it was replaced by the A series which ended in 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.


The are an easy way to bake some individual casseroles, gratins or use them as serving dishes.  Retro pratical flair.  I bought them very reasonably so can pass them on reasonably as well.  Price is for the set of four.

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.

Made by the Italian firm of Gli Etruschi, known for its playful designs and bright colors. It is in AS IS condition. Please read full description.


This fish stands  4 1/2 inches high x  7 1/4 inches long. 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.  It is NOT in excellent condition as its tail was broken off and reglued at some time. It would still make a great accent piece in your Midcentury decor.


 Add it to your Midcentuy Italian pottery, Raymor, or Fantoni collection today.  This is a striking Bitossi Italy vase using the very popular sgrafitto  popular in the 1950s-1960s from Bitossi as well as some sprigged on two tone leaves. The vase stands 7 1/2 inches tall. This vase is part of the Rosenthal-Netter line of imported Italian pottery and ceramics as it is carries an original paper label.


Also known as Richards Morgenthau & Co., the New York-based company Raymor was a well-known American distributor of modern domestic products, evolving from Russell Wright Accessories, with which the company's founder, Irving Richards, had been linked since 1935. The company's range included designs by Gilbert Rohde, Donald Deskey, Walter Dorwin Teague, Ray and Charles Eames, George Nelson, and Eva Zeisel. In the post-Second World War period Raymor also imported modern Scandinavian and Italian designs, including work by Arne Jacobsen, Tapio Wirkaala, Hans Wegner, Ettore Sottsass, the Bitossi designers Aldo Londi, and Alvino Bagni. Bitossi designed a wide range of ceramics in the late 1950s and 1960s for the Raymor importing company. 


The body of the vase is done in what I call Aldo Londi's Bark or Earth background in which the chocolate brown body of the clay is glazed with a clear glaze to contrast the vivid colors Londi loved to use.  It seems that the Rosenthal-Netter line was a brighter toned line than the Raymor Line.  One sees a lot of yellows and oranges on the Rosenthal-Netter line.


This particular vase is from a line called in Italian Foglie Colorate Applicate (Applied Colored Leaves). This particular line was produced from 1960 to around 1970. It features five sprigged on two-tone abstract stylized leaves done in that very popular style of the 1950s.  The stems of the flowers of leaves have been incised into the body by the sgraffito technique so beloved by Londi.


In addition to the original paper Rosenthal-Netter black and white paper label, there is also an original factory label with carries the stock number 240/3 and the words Made in Italy.  


This vase is valued at over 100 pounds in Mark HIll's recent book on Mid-century Italian pottery. 


The piece is in excellent condition and would be a star addition to any Raymor Bitossi Londi collection.  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.  I am pleased to offer this scarce piece of American mid century Art Pottery manufactured by Gordon and Jane Martz at Marshall Studios, Veedersburg, Indiana. Their mid century modern work was recognized by a design award from the Museum of Modern Art in New York City which also has some of their work in its permanent collection.


This pottery oval lipped dish or platter features an incised design of three mushrooms on a white background. The pitcher is 10 inches long x 6 1/4 inches wide and stands 1 inch tall. It is inscribed on the bottom with the shape number P 137 though it is hard to see. It is in excellent condition with no nicks, chips or cracks. This handsome Martz / Marshall Studios form would make a nice addition to any collection of mid century American art / studio pottery or Eames / Miller / Knoll inspired décor.

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.

The Catalonian line was introduced in January 1927. It was referred to as "The Glass of Old Spain." The patent for this unique type of glass listed it as "blister or bubble" glass. It was Consolidated's best selling line of glass at the time.


It comes in clear colors of Crystal, Emerald Green, and Spanish Rose pink. The "soft" colors are produced by adding a transparent color wash to the glass. The colors are known as Honey (yellow), Amethyst (purple), and Jade (soft green). In the 1940s a cranberry overall wash was also used, along with different bands of color on clear. The most desired effect is called Rainbow.


Shown in the 1931 catalog reprint on page 35 of Jack Wilson's 1989 book, this is the #1166 shape of the Art Deco Catalonian line by Consolidated Glass. It stands 6 1/4 inches tall. The bottle base is 3 1/2 inches wide across.  The vase is in excellent condition.

This stunning Art Deco inspired Cosmos vase was made by the Phoenix Glass Company of Monaca Pennsylvania between 1936-1948 as part of its "Decorative Sculptured Artware". It is part of a line called the Sculptured Crystal 200 Series line.

Produced in Cadet Blue, White, Orchid.


This vase has the flowers in "raised detail in soft relief." It also features a blue ceramic color that could be the Cadet Blue described. It is very close to the well-known "Reuben" Blue using for the "Reuben-Line".


The vase is in excellent condition for its age. It does have some very tiny rim pinpricks in two places on the rim. It stands 7 1/2 inches tall x 6 3/4 inches across.  The base of the vase also has a ceramic finish on it.  It features the Art Deco speed lines as a major part of its design.

The pattern is also shown on page 161 of the Bredehoft Second Edition book and listed there as having a value of $315. I have priced this toothpick holder considerably under that price as I bought it reasonably. 


It stands 1 3/4 inches tall x 2 1/4 inches wides.  This holder is in excellent condition. The top rim has never been ground down on this one. 


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)  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.  This is a set of four #1639 Medium mugs. 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 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.


Add it to our Royal Haeger or Mid-century pottery collection today.  This Notre Dame Fighting Irish 16 ounces beer or bar glass stands 6 inches tall.  On one side, one sees the blue ND symbol over the words Notre Dame in gold. On the other side in green is the Fighting Irish man and the words in blue Fightin' Irish.  On the side near the bottom of the glass it reads OFFICIALLY LICENSED PRODUCT.


The glass is in great vintage condition. I am not sure if it is from the past 15 years or older than that. I do know that Notre Dame alumni love their school!  So, if you are an alumnus of Notre Dame or know someone who is, this is a great little gift or stocking stuffer.  


Add it to your collegiate barware collection today.  Open up a bottle and pour.  This milk glass body line of glassware often carries a label identifying it as Mar-Crest.

The line contained both stoneware, dinnerware,  and glassware. The items were made by many different companies both all carried the Mar-Crest name.


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 the cereal bowls are not marked Fire-King.


This great retro vintage fluted top custard cup stands  1 7/8 inches tall.  It is 3 1/4 inches across at the top. What a great addition to your Eames era or Mid-century home!

In order to keep the decals looking great, I would recommend hand washing these vintage American dishes.  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.

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.

"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.  


It does have some wear to it as it was used and loved.  This Edwards Star Gumps blue 5 jewel enamel plate measures 9 3/4 inches wide.

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.

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.

Let's go back, way back to the time when fun and funky decorative items were in everyone's home.  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.

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.
