If you are of "a certain age", you might remember drinking a cold liquid on a hot day from an anodized metal tumbler. Cold liquid in a aluminum tumbler that got so cold it was hard to hold. Now, who remembers these?


I own a set of the original West Bend multi-colored tumblers in the original cylinder with original artwork. Since most of these were not marked, it is hard to tell which company made which tumbler. Each of these 4 3/4" tall chartreuse tumblers are stamped 5/99 and I have no idea what that means.


I do know that you can recreate that sensation of drinking Kool-Aid, iced tea, or lemonade from one of these babies and slip right back into the past.  Designed by the very prolific and popular Midcentury designer Ernest Sohn (1913-2006), this circa 1968-69 rectangular mahogany wooden cheese server measures 14 inches long x 7 inches wide as was part of Sohn's "Color-Happy" Buffetware line. Its price was listed as $14 in a vintage 1969 Chicago Tribune Marshall Field and Company ad. It features a 6 1/8 inch wide enamel plaque in a mod op art floral style. Done in shades of avocado green, turquoise, bright orange, bright yellow, and a reddish orange, each colored section is outlined in black, giving it an abstract stylized quality which was very popular as a motif in consumer goods produces in the Mid-century era. 


Signed on the back in a burnt wood signature, it reads: Genuine Walnut designed by Ernest Sohn.


It is a cool and funky retro design by a noted American industrial designer whose works are gaining both in popularity and value. Add it to your Mid-century Eames era enamel collection today.  This is a set of four footed 2 7/8 inch tall Roly Polys. They feature a wheel cut star burst pattern called "Star Dust". They were made by C G Quartex Crystal, in Japan circa 1940-50's. This pattern was produced in Occupied Japan and discontinued in 1950.


So, what classic craft cocktail would you make to make these glasses sparkle even more?  I live in Vermont. That means I find lots and lots of what we call "syrup pourer" up here. They are intended to be used with maple syrup, you know, that elixir from sugar maple trees boiled down and turned into liquid gold.


This 5 inch tall (to the tip of spout) one has a bright yellow plastic lid which lifts when you press the serrated bottom section of the handle. It holds more than a cup. So, you can use it as a funky retro creamer as well if you don't want to pour syrup.  


I don't know which American company made it as there is only an "8" in a circle on the bottom. In any case, it is a useful practical piece of America's past ready for your vintage kitchen now.

An article about the two Scatchard brothers and their ceramics was published in the 1967 Spring issue of Vermont Life on pages 38-42. According to the article, he was the only New Englander to receive a merit award for three items (all pottery) entered in the 1965-1966 New England Craft Council's exhibition for new and emerging craftsmen.


His current website, gslamps.com, shows his current production and gives a brief history of his work.  This desk item from the 1950s-1960s is called a perpetual calendar.

This one features a scene of Quebec City and its iconic Chateau Frotenac. Both sides have an identical scene.

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.

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.

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.

I am selling this set of four pans with ONE cover.

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 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.  Ballard pair #12 grey brown puzzle vases.  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.
