This is a signed and dated Lundberg Studios 1975 paperweight from Davenport, California.  Lundberg Studios was founded in 1970  by the late James Lundberg. The body of the paperweight is opal or milk glass which has been satinized. The overlay decoration consists of silver tendrils of flowers whose blossoms are also silver with deep blue centers.  The leaves are done in a deep green glass. The asymmetrical placement of the flower seems to be common in early Lundberg Studio pieces.


The piece is numbered 280. It carries as well the initials DS, which is either David or Daniel Salazar.  It is a spectacular example of early California Art Glass.  Add it to your Mid Century glass or paperweight collection today.  Very large (26 1/2" X 18 1/2") decorative metal Toleware Tray with pierced edge.  The painting on the tray is a grained background with green Grapes and White Flowers with leaves.  The paint is very good with only a few, small skips.  The back has the original label and only a few light scuff marks on the edges.  No dents or rust noted.  Awesome item for a collection or to use as a statement accessory in your home.    This great small low 5 3/4 inch wide bowl was made and decorated by Mark Bellaire, another great Californian Mid Century designer. Bellaire worked at Sasha Brastoff's studio before working on his own.


This low bowl has an interesting fish scale pattern as a background done in tones of celadon green and white.  The two VERY abstract African Warrior or Dancer heads each have a headpiece, hoop earrings and hoops on their necks.  


It is in excellent shape and  is signed with standard white signature on a chocolate brown background.

I think these are the nicest pair of Chalkware that I have seen done by Miller Studio.  They are dated 1951.  The color is deep and rich and strong.  They show little, if any, use.  It is a pair of Flying Pheasants with the largest one being approx 10 1/2" long and the smaller one at 7 1/2" long.  They are as nice as the picture.  Price is for the pair at  This is a vintage Head Vase of a young Girl with Blonde Hair and Burgundy Red Shirt Praying.  The bottom is marked E-1579 (I think it is an E- the ink is smudged)INARCO Cleveland Ohio 1964.  The vase is in very good condition- no chips or cracks- just a very light, faint crazing appropriate to its age.  These Purinton Fruit pattern range shakers feature a pear on the Pepper and an Apple on the Salt. Each has its original cork but it is up in the shaker.  They have no chips or cracks to  them. Each shaker stands four inches tall and is three inches wide.  They would look great in a country inspired kitchen.  Add them to your Purinton pottery or American Dinnerware collection today. They are in excellent condition.  Made between 1894 - 1900, this pattern is among those started while Consolidated was still in Fostoria, Ohio prior to their move to Pennsylvania.  As Lechner states in his Salt Shaker book (second edition) on page 45, this motif consists of four embossed fish standing upright; one on each corner of the shaker.  Excellent overall condition with some minor and typical inner rim roughness. 


It stands 3 1/2 and is considered by Lechner as very scarce.  The toothpick holder in this pattern is shown on the Second Edition of the Bredehoft book on page 46. It is very scarce in the cased colors.

Very RARE Monk Tankard by Homer Laughlin.  Unmarked but definitely by Homer Laughlin.  Measures a little  more than 12".  No chips or cracks- light crazing- great Monk design- just a light wear on gold trim.  This is an amazing piece!!!     This toothpick holder was produced by the Northwood Glass Works in 1902 as part of the National Glass Company. It stands 2 1/4 inches tall. It is shown on page 149 of the Second Edition Bredehoft book.


This particular green toothpick holder must have just barely gotten any refiring as the opalescent rim is hard to see but visible. The more heat in the refiring process the more the points of the rim melted. As you can see, the points in this pattern are almost untouched by the heat. That makes this a scarce example.  


The toothpick holder is in excellent condition and ready to join your collection.

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 32 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 and though not dated, I believe it is from the 1977- 1981 period based on pattern and style. 


This Crider vaseline base glass with white applied swirling Kint Tut decoration is in a bulbous base urn shape with a modified simple flared top. The top rim is bordered by a rim of dark amethyst glass.  The outside is completely irridized. It's hard to imagine the amount of work that went into this beautiful, hand made toothpick holder. It is signed Crider and dated 2006 on the bottom.


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

I have named this stunning pattern Red Flowers.  This pattern is shown on page 69 of the Spring 2003 Modernism magazine in Alan Rosenberg's article on enamel. 


The box measures a little over 14 inches long x 4 onches wide. Each of the four coasters has the gold circle label which reads Handcrafted by Bovano of Cheshire Conn.

 This Raymor Bitossi Seta bottle shaped vase stands 15 inches tall. It is covered with both vertically incised lines and indentations horizontally in  the body of the piece. The piece has been painted in black, deep pink, and gold done in horizontal bands. It is simply a stunning piece of Eames era Midcentury ceramic art. The bottom is signed V222/43 and the word Italy in bold black letters. I would guess that the piece is Bitossi by the way the IT of Italy is written. It is in excellent shape. It would great on a Paul McCobb piece or even a Noguchi table.

Vermont Studio potter Stanley Ballard (1917-1960) graduated from Alfred University’s highly respected Ceramic Program in 1939, having studied there under these influential teachers: Marion Fosdick, Charles Harder, Clarence Merritt, and C. 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 2 lite candleholder measures 6 1/4 inches long x 3 1/4 inches wide x 2 3/4 inches tall. 


It is from Ballard's midde period, I think, as it has heavy mottling of the blue overglaze and chocolate brown underglaze. It is signed S. Ballard and shape number 82. It had a matching console bowl in this wave shape.  It is in excellent condition.

It measures 4 1/4 inches wide and stands 1 1/2 inches tall. It is most likely from Ballard's later production period. It carries the standard S. Ballard signature and the shape number 74.

Signed 1983 Miller Studios, a 5" X 4" Gold Chalk Butterfly.  Excellent condition- no damage- original wall hanger on the back.  Just set to grace your walls in that retro decor!  From the late 1940's or 1950's, a Cedar Trinket or Dreser Box with Copper Strapping by Donald F Duncan Wood Novelties Chicago (signed).  It's clean and in original condition- no polishing so the copper has patina and the varnish has a lttle bit of spidering.  This Box is approx. 8 1/2" long  X 5 1/2" wide X 4 1/4" high.  It has great presence and would look wondlerful with Mission designs.  Annemarie Davidson 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 6 inch shallow bowl features another of her celebrated designs. This design uses overlapping leaves of brown over orange on a gold background.   It can be seen in the seminal article by Alan Rosenberg in the Spring 2003 issue of David Rago's fine Modernism magazine on page 71. The dish shown in the magazine article is cobalt blue over a lighter blue and is circa 1960.  


The back of the plate is signed with her charcteristic AD interwined intiails and her paper label which reads Annemarie Davidson handcrafted enamels Sierra Madre California.  Every piece was handcrafted by her alone, from start to finish. It is in excellen condition.  It is an impressive enamel of Mid-Century enamel art! Add it to your Davidson or Mid-Century enamel collection today.


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.  

 What a great addition to your barware collection or bar! This ice bowl or ice tub is American made glass, most likely from the 1950s or early 1960s when it was quite popular to screen gold stylized decoration onto glass items. Cobalt blue squares are separated by gold bars. Each blue square has a stylized gold sun inside. It is a great looking piece with a gold rim. It is gently used but ready to serve many more years in your home.  It stands  4 3/4 inches tall and is 5 3/4 inches across the top. Time to make some ice and break out the cocktail recipes!

This Ballard #22 rectangular small footed planter in a mustard yellow glaze stands only 2 1/2 inches tall x 3 1/2 inches wide. It is signed with an incised 22 and S. Ballard Vermont. It is most likely from his later production period as there is no chocolate brown band at the bottom of the base.

The graduated stepped base is very unusual for Ballard . I think this shape is from his later studio period.  Measuring 8 1/2 inches square, this 6 rest ashtray in chartreuse green and forest green screams 1950s!  The inside of the well is done in a speckled pattern on the chartreuse and the raised border is done in a textured surface like a concrete block. The contrast between the forest green used for the rests and the rest of the ashtray is truly stiking. It is in excellent condition and would look fabulous on a glass top coffeetable or just filled with some soaps or bonbons. Add it to your collection today.

Produced by the Cheshire CT firm of Bovano (started in 1953 by John BOnsignor, Gene VAn Leight and Warren NOden), this 10 1/4  inch wide enamel rimmed bowl features what I have named the Straw and Jewel pattern which consists of dark blue straw lines and smaller burgundy red, teal green and gold jewels strewn along the straws on a cloud like background which is multi-tonal and contains primary colors of pink and green with some white shaded areas. A very unusual background. It is a very abstract florial pattern if you like. The pattern reminds me of some of Kay Dennings jewelry work for Bovano as well as the early Brower pieces I have seen.


The back is done in the typical black counterenamel Bovano uses and the gold circle label which reads Handcrafted by Bovano of Cheshire Conn.  All three original brown felt protective pads are still present. It is in very good condition. There one very time bruise to the enamel on the back side at the rim 1/16 inch in size. No damage to the enamel on the front or the front side of the rim.  The hanging plate rack is included but could be removed to use as a flat piece. Add it to your Mid-Century Enamel collection today.  Dating most likely from the Mid-Century era in California this little gem is made by the Freeman-McFarlin company mostly known for its ceramics. As you can see by the photo, it is clearly marked F Mc F and Calif USA along with what looks like the number 202. It is metal most likely copper with enamel highlights. It stands only 1/2 high and is  3 3/4 inches in diameter. It stands on three feet which are part of the body. It is in excellent shape. One can see a very similar piece on page 114 of Jack Chipman's excellent 1999 book called Collector's Encyclopedia of California Pottery Second Edition.  Annemarie Davidson learned her enameling craft first from the great Doris Hall (1907-2001) in Cambridge, MA  in 1957.

She also uses a sgraffito technique, incising straight lines from the center of her plate with the sharp point of a dart. 


This 7 1/2 inch 3 rest ashtray, most likely is from the 1961-1962 time period. This ashtray features 3 large yellow and 6 smaller orange jewels arranged in pairs between the larger yellow jewels. The underlying copper color can be seen near the edges. A prominent Palm Springs CA dealer James Elliot-Bishop on his website has named this pattern as Ghostline.


The back of the plate is signed with her charcteristic AD interwined intiails and her paper label which reads Annemarie Davidson handcrafted enamels Sierra Madre California.  This is what I think is her earliest label with the black line separating the words handcrafted enamels and the words Sierra Madre, California. 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 beautiful enamel plate measures 7 1/2 inches wide. It features a golden center onto which jewels in deep red, green, orange and light green have been applied. There is a green border around the plate. There is some very minor edge chipping but it displays well. 


The back is counterenameled in a greenish color.There are two initials which were applied to the back in a yellow enamel. It loooks like JS but I am not sure.


It is a very nice piece of Mid Century enamel and may appeal to collectors of Bovano, Annemarie Davidson, Doris Hall, and others. Add it to your Mid-Century enamel collection today.

Collectors of Shawnee or Wall Pockets or Blue Birds, would be pleased with this item!  Part of the Regent line made by Consolidated in the early 1940 or late 1930s, this 4 1/2 inch tall fan vase owes its shape to the earlier Catalonian Spanish Knobs line.

It is marked 'Japan' on the bottom.  This #1535 Chick/Egg Bennington piece is designed as both a trivet and a plaque. Originally, it had four rubber knob feet so it can sit on a counter or a hanger to be used as a wall plaque. It still has its hanger but is missing the rubber ball feet. It is an earlier design by the late David Gil who started Bennington Potters as a design collaborative in 1948.  This Ballard vase is decorated with an abstract design of deep blue and black lines within a square. Marked #70 on the bottom, it is a late piece to the line I feel. There is a tiny flake on the one corner of the top rim. This is the only piece I have seen with this decoration.  This Royal Haeger #138 Ebony Cascade 1954 ashtray has 4 rests and is fully signed on the bottom. Great 'V' shaped center which adds to the geometric look. Part of the 'new' Cascade glazes Haeger debuted as part of their 1954 line.  Excellent condition. Would look stunning on a blond wood coffee table.

David Gil Coop Design 6 1/8 inch round x 13/16 inch  deep plate with rough unglazed bottom, signed with incised signature 'David Gil' and 'bennington'.  This mark dates pre-1960. There is little speckling in the glaze on the front of the plate. The sides of the plate are glazed as is the rim of the plate but the mark is from the middle period of the 1240 plate series, so I am putting this into the late middle period closer to 1960. 


The pattern on this plate is a very abstract one, depicting a Bull or Steer with horns. I have nicknamed this piece Lascaux Bull as it reminds me of the cave paintings there. The body is done in a simple line technique of blue and black. The eye is turquoise blue and there are two brown spots on the side of the animal. 


There are no hints of turquoise color in the  brown dots as seen on the early version of this design.  Excellent condition.


On the back of this plate, the incised signature is not as clear as on the early period plates. It looks like a white glaze was brushed over the bottom as one can see brush marks. 


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.


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


David Gil started producing work in Bennington Vermont in 1948. They are among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury. It evolved into a co-operative of different art potters, then into the Bennington Potters company we have known since 1960 and still very much active today.  This cone shaped vase was made and decorated by Mark Bellaire, another great Californian Mid Century designer. 


This 9 inch tall vase features stripes of color, a chocolate brown and terra cotta red with a wild yellow blotch which could be the sun.  


It measures 3 inches in diameter at top and 5 inches in diameter at he bottom.


Signed with standard black signature. Two black outlined figures with raised arms  are on the vase. Excellent condition.  Vermont Studio potter Stanley Ballard (1917-1960) graduated from Alfred University’s highly respected Ceramic Program in 1939, having studied there while these influential teachers were part of the faculty: Marion Fosdick, Charles Harder, Clarence Merritt, and C.
