What a gorgeous addition to your vintage home bar this 5 1/4 inch tall x 4 3/4 inch wide Daisy and Button pattern ice tub is! The stainless steel tongs are unmarked but fit perfectly.


I imagine this Pressed clear ice tub dates to the 1950-1970 period when it was popular to reintroduce patterns from the Early American Pattern glass period. It would look right at home on a Midcentury bar. In excellent condition.   Oh, how I wish someone would love these elegant glass pieces as much as the original owner who bought them or received them as gifts, likely engagement or wedding gifts.

I rescued both of these 7 inch tall 10 optic goblets yesterday from the local thrift. They did not deserve to be there looking so elegant amid the riff riff. The connector is three sided and reminds me of a Greek column. The wafer connecting the stem to the foot is clear and has no pattern. The design is an etch and not wheel cutting. Hopefully when I add them to my mall booth or my online store for a very reasonable, someone will take them home. They are in excellent vintage condition.


Please. I would like them to go to someone who appreciates the artistry and craftsmanship it took to make them.  It measures 11 3/4" x 6" tray with crimped edges. This would look great filled with just about anything you choose. How about cheese and crackers? candy? cookies? You name it.


I bought it very reasonably and am listing it for an equally very reasonable price. It is in excellent condition.  Like other better known lines such as Lido, Soreno, and Pagoda, this late 1960s to early 1970s glass line from Anchor Hocking comes in these colors: avocado green, clear, gold, laser blue, and a rare flower vase.

 

According to replacements.com, the line includes 11 pieces: a 4" flat juice tumbler, a 3 1/8" old fashioned tumbler, a 5 1/2 inch tall 12 oz beverage tumbler, a 6 inch 16 oz tall tumbler, a 6 3/4 inch 22 oz "cooler", a 9 5/8 inch 64 oz pitcher, and a 11 1/4 inch storage jar. For footed pieces, it includes a 3 1/2 inch 8 oz champagne/tall sherbet, a 5 3/4 inch water goblet. It even includes two plates, both a 9 7/8 inch dinner plate and a 10 inch snack plate with cup ring. 


This makes this line one of the most complete lines Anchor Hocking offered in this time period. It is also a hybrid of the textured surface lines such as Lido, Soreno, and Pagoda and much more traditional glassware in that the pattern of flowers is done in relief on each piece while keeping a stippled background.

This Midcentury Modern classic design was created by the Viking Glass Company. This line was called "Epic" and it is! The Epic Line from Viking Art Glass was produced from 1956 to 1970. Instead of placing two handles at each side as in a more traditional glass design, the designer included a handle in the middle which also serves as a divider so that the candy dish has more functionality.


This particular design was included in the Epic line from 1962-1968. It measures 8 1/2 inches long x 6 inches wide. The color of the glass? Ruby Red like those famous slippers, baby! It is ready to sit on your Midcentury Modern credenza and give it a pop of 1960s-1970s color. A great resource for the designs of Viking and the Epic Line is the book titled Viking Glass 1944-1970 by Dean Six published in 2003. (ISBN: 0-7643-1859-4).  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 four 2 3/4 inch tall x 3 1/2 inch wide sherbets  in the Amber 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 four  footed sherbets is in the Amber color, one of the easier to find colors in this line.  They are  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 4.


Add them to your Morgantown or Art Deco American glassware collection today.  Elizabeth graduated from the University of Vermont. She lives in Lincoln Vermont She founded York Hill Pottery in 1980. Susan Kuehnl joined her at York Hill Pottery in 1990. Prior to that, Susan had her own studio working as a painter. Susan lives in Starksboro Vermont. Because this piece is signed only with "E. Saslaw, Lincoln VT", I believe it was made between 1980-1990 before Susan joined York Hill Pottery.


Elizabeth throws and trims the pottery items. Susan then formulates the glazes, applies them, and paints on the decorative brushwork. Susan loads the pottery into the kiln; Elizabeth is in charge of the weekly firing.


The piece is decorated with a pink flower with 4 green leaves on the diagonally place design with horizontal bands of green and light pink on a light pink background. 


It is a great example of the creativity and versatility of Vermont studio potters. It is now for sale for $18 at 5 Corners Antiques in Essex Junction, Vermont.  The Impromptu Line was introduced around the same time as the Accent Line. It too was designed by Freda Diamond who was Libbey's head designer from 1942-1979. She was brilliant in her understanding of the American giftware market. It was produced in plain glass and with decorations on it from 1971-1982. 

Here is how it was described in the original 1971 catalog geared for wholesale dealers who carried Libbey glass: "The look of the future for the lifestyles of today. Casual, contemporary glassware design. Handsome, sculptured sidewalls feel comfortable …. easy to hold …. and look good, too! Offered in tasteful shades of Tawny, Olive, and new Dusky Blue. Put them on your shelves, Watch them move." Time to look up some vintage cocktail recipes and fill up these smoky grey glass rocks with some vintage goodness!

Set 4 smoky gray vintage Midcentury sign $28.00

Extremely collectable. Platinum rim. Excellent vintage condition. Each one holds a good amount of liquor....er liquid.. Stunning, no?  Soon in northern Vermont a condition called cabin fever will set in. By mid-March people will be looking for any and every sign that spring with its beautiful flowers will arrive. This little flowerpot can perhaps ease the transition. 

It was made by the Stangl Company of Trenton NJ. It is decorated in a graffito techinque wherein the outline of the flower and leaves are etched into the base glaze. It is then handpainted. The forest green laves and top band contrast nicely with the pink blossom. It has two blossoms on it, one on each side. The inside of the pot also has a corresponding forest green band. It is in excellent vintage condition.


It is nice that it still carries its original paper label too.  So, will it be Orange juice or tomato juice that you will serve in this pair of Anchor Hocking Lido avocado juice glasses. These are one of the harder shapes to find.


These glasses were made by Anchor Hocking from 1963 into the early 1970s. The pattern of this set is called Lido Glass, but the original pattern was introduced in 1959 as Milano Glass. Production of the Milano pattern spanned 1959 to 1963, and was only produced in Avocado Green and Crystal (clear). This pattern was made in ten different shapes and in the following colors: Avocado Green, Crystal, Honey Gold, Spicy Brown, Aquamarine, and Laser Blue.  Are you named Anthony or Armstrong? Audrey or Adams? If your first name or last name begins with the letter "A", then this set of vintage platinum rim Midcentury hiball glasses from the 1960s is for you! 

Yes, that's the ticket! This set of 4 clear with "A" monogram tumblers/hiballs stands 5 1/2 inches tall. Each one carries the monogram "A" on one side. Very heavy 3/4 inch base which gives these glasses great stability and heft. 


So, let's see, which classic cocktail would you serve in your "A" glasses?

This 5 3/4 inch tall mixing glass with 7 vintage cocktail recipes and measuring scale was made by the Federal Glass Company most likely in the 1950s. The seven vintage recipes are: Gibson, Martini (of course), Tom Collins, Daiquiri, Bacardi, Manhattan, and Whiskey Sour. Above the recipes is a band of different types filled goblets or glasses for each recipe. I like the fact that all have bubbles coming out of them! On the side of the 12 ounce measuring scale it says: " Multiply Ingedients by Number of Drinks". Sure, I bet that sounds logical and easy until you make and consume one or two shakers full of cocktails..... I believe this mixing glass might have had another metal part when used as a set that fit over the top so that you can shaker it OR perhaps you transferred the contents into a cocktail shaker to shake and pour.


In any case, these are not hard to find but are a great American made Midcentury bar collectible. Excellent vintage condition.  Discontinued Corelle Provincial Blue rimmed soup plates in very good vintage condition. Price is for the pair.  Marcy Mayforth 1990s Purple Plumes vase:


Talented Vermont studio potter Marcy Mayforth of Lincoln has been creating colorful and practical pottery since the 1970s. I met her in a jazz dance class we were both taking in the late 1970s. She has exhibited in Frog Hollow for many years. Her wax technique outlines the elements of her design. 


This is a new design for me by Vermont studio potter Marcy Mayforth. It consists of four 2 section plumes, one in purple and one in light blue. I have never seen it before and I am very familiar with her wax designs. Marcy created these designs using the classical wax resist method. This 3 1/2 inch tall vase is signed simply with her MM initials. The background is a off white which really makes the design pop. 


This shape was also sold with a matching ceramic ball attached to a wick to use it as an oil lamp.  This Kensington Deco #7032  16 1/4 inch tall  Kingston vase is another Lurelle Guild stunning design. It was designed in 1934 by Guild. The designs in the base perfectly complement the brushed Kensington aluminum. 


It can be seen on p. 35 of the 1997 Art Deco Aluminum: Kensington book by Paula Ockner & Leslie Pina. It was designed for medium-stemmed flowers. It was valued by the authors at $25-30 in 1997. 


It is in very good vintage condition. Although there are no dents, there are some minot marks  consistent with its age and use.  The piece is marked with the Kensington stag logo on its base.

This 8 1/2 tall cylinder vase was made by the Bitossi company of Montelupo Italy and imported into the US by the Rosenthal-Netter company as can be seen with the original paper label still attached to the bottom of this vase. 


I really like the way the orange flowers with red centers are painted on both the sunny yellow glaze portion and the brown glazed portion of the lid. It is in excellent vintage condition. Time to pass it along to a Bitossi Midcentury Italian pottery collector


It would look stunning on a Midcentury modern coffee table, teak wall unit or end table.  Noritake Viewpoint grey 1978-1983 set four 4 1/2 inch champagne tall sherbet:


Champagne or cocktails ... or dessert for four? Well, apparantly this is the very situation which the Noritake Company chose to address with the introduction of their 1978-83 Viewpoint line in this smoky gray color. This elegant line is highlighted by the use of a smoke gray glass bowl on top and a one piece body of the glass. They are simply stunning.


The smoky gray color was very popular in the late 1960s through the 1970s. It was used by Holmegaard in Denmark in Per Lutken's iconic line as well as by the Libbey Glass Company of Toledo Ohio and Morgantown in West Virginia. For Noritake, I believe this line was their attempt to stay current with the times.


This shape was marketed as a "champagne/tall sherbet" glass. Each stands 4 1/2 inches tall and the bowl is 3 7/8 inches across. It would look stunning in the right Midcentury decor. Add it to your vintage barware collection today.  This set of four 5 1/4 inch tall hiball cocktail glasses with Christmas tree, bells, a wreath, poinsettia and holly was made by the Continental Can Company whose logo is composed of three concentric stylized letter "C"s inside each other. The Continental Can Company purchased the Hazel Atlas Glass Company in 1957 but in 1964 12 of the 14 plants of Hazel-Atlas were acquired by the Brockway Glass Company. This mark thus dates these glasses are pre-1957. 


The designs on these glasses are consistent with a 1950s production date as they display some of the popular motifs used on Midcentury graphics in particular the use of highly stylized leaves and foliage wherein the leaf is either in a split style or where the veins are highlighted. I love the stylized version of the Christmas tree and ornaments in this design! In these glasses, the holly leaves are green but the veins are clear. 

One one side it states Merry Christmas while on the other side it states Happy New Year inside a bell. In terms of color, the use of forest green along with the expected red and white places these squarely in the 1950s. 


So, time to search out a vintage Midcentury cocktail book for some classic recipes as well as perhaps a vintage cocktail shaker, invite a few friends over and celebrate the season.  The Noritake Company produced and exported thousands of items in hundreds of designs to the United State between 1921-1935. They had a design office in New York City where current design sources would be used to send ideas to Japan for the Noritake decorators to use. One of the most highly collected periods of Noritake production is from the 1921 - 1935 Art Deco period. 


They are renowed worldwide for their dinnerware but had a whole division focused on what was then called "fancyware", items for household consumption decorated artistically. Though very reasonable in price when first sold, they are now collected by both collectors in the Western world as well as in Japan.


This triangular lobed bowl measures 7 inches in diameter. It stands 1 3/4 inches tall. It has three tab handles. The entire rim of the bowl is painted black. The large central cluster of oak leaves and acorns is placed asymmetrically on the plate, a revolutionary idea at the time. Another Art Deco common feature was the stylization of nature. The acorns and leaves are NOT painted in a realistic manner but are abstract and stylized.  


 Noritake is well known for its luster glazes, the most common of which is tan luster. Their less common luster glazes are gold, silver, green, pearl, and yellow luster (also spelled lustre sometimes).


This bowl has only tan luster on it but it uses scarce colors of orange in the paint. It is in excellent vintage condition. The green Noritake Wreath mark indicates production between 1921-1925. Later the mark was in red.

It's funny that I have now purchased a third set of this Federal pattern after never seeing it before last month. This version has a silver rim added to it with embossed 6 embossed designs repeated twice around the bowl. The design is very abstract but feels Scandanavian in nature. It could even be a very abstract butterfly. 


This set of 3 5/8 inch tall footed cocktail glasses features a smoky gray foot attached to a clear round bowl. This size was listed as their "champagne / tall sherbet " but it would be a great choice for your classic or craft cocktails too!

They were inexpensive to buy and likewise inexpensive to manufacture as they did not use the labor intensive "hand hammering" method found on higher priced aluminum items of the period. The pattern was simply stamped by matching onto thinner aluminum, then shaped to its desired purpose.


Whether stamped of hand hammered aluminum, they sure were popular then. Now, they can play the same vital role they played back then, protecting wooden surfaces from condensation from a cold drink served in a glass. Order them now.  Like pie? Like Pyrex's and Corelle's Spice O' Life line which was made by Corning from 1972-1987? Then this vintage Midcentury chrome plated EKCO pie server should join your retro or vintage kitchen!


Ekco Products Company was founded in 1888 by Edward Katzinger. Originally called the Edward Katzinger Company, this Chicago business manufactured tin pans for commercial bakeries. By the end of the following decade, the company's product line included equipment for confectioners and ice cream manufacturers as well as bakeries. It was incorporated in 1903, and three years later the company erected a five-story building.


In 1927 the company made its first acquisition, purchasing the August Maag Co., a small Baltimore bakeware-manufacturing firm. Two years later the company entered the kitchenware business when it purchased the A & J Manufacturing Co., the largest producer of kitchen tools. The company went public in 1945 under the name Ekco Products Co.


This server measures 10 inches long. The pattern is actually a strip of decals added to the white plastic handle. It is ready to serve another generation of pie lovers.

My Mom had a special set of "guest coasters" or fancy coasters that she only used when she hosted her Ladies' bridge club a few times a year. They had their own special location in the top drawer of the end table. Strictly off limits except for the bridge club. Of course there were a few other coaster sets around the living room, dining room, and the rest of the house.


This set of 4 vintage stamped aluminum 3 1/8 inch bar coasters features the very popular "Fruit & Flowers" pattern which was often used on all sorts of decorative articles or housewares in the 1945-1970 time period.

If your first name or last name begins with the letter "T", then this set from the 1960s is for you! The font is known as "Old English" or "Old Gothic". This smoke gray color debuted in the mid 1950s and quickly became a best seller for firms such as Libbey, Federal, Morgantown, etc. Holmegaard in Denmark made a lot of glass in this color. I think this is a Federal Glass Company shape.

 

This set of 4 smoke gray with "T" monogram rocks glasses stands 3 1/4 inches tall and holds 8 ounces. Each one carries the monogram "T" on one side. Very heavy 5/8 inch base which gives these glasses great stability and heft. 


 So, let's see, which classic cocktail would you serve in your "T" glasses? Manhattan maybe?  Here is a whimsical modern stoneware piece from designed by Gloria Gil at Bennington Potters in Vermon which was started by David & Gloria Gil in 1948. It is from the post1962 period when the mark included only the words Bennington Potters or only a shape number and the words Bennington Vermont.


This square 8 inch diameter trivet / plaque was advertised in the 1964 catalogue as 1563, 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 has no wire attached to it though I believe it once did have one. This piece is shown in the 1964 catalogue as and is titled there Fighting Cock. Its original 1964 price was $3.00. This was designed by Gloria Gil.


It features a Rooster proudly displaying. The green, gray and yellow glazes used for color on this piece pop because the background is a semi matter white glaze.


It two of the four original rubber feet which protect the flat surface upon which one sets it. It displays beautifully in a plate stand. It is signed 1563 only, marking it from the post 1962 Bennington Potters production.  It is in excellent vintage condition.  Why not enjoy your bowl of hearty soup from a lug handled soup bowl created by one of the pioneers of the 20th century Vermont Studio Potters movement, working since 1960. 


This handled lug soup was created by George Scatchard in the 1970s. It stands 2 3/4 inches tall and measures 6 inches across from the tip of the lug handle to the other rim. 


He is located in Underhill, Vermont, Georges Scatchard started from a converted horsebarn with his brother Ted in 1960. 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.


This lug soup is in excellent shape.

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 airplanes. 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.


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 7 3/4 inch wide low bowl is in the famous Roadrunner pattern. It features one bird running around the center of the bowl. 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."  This 10 inch bud vase was decorated by the Lotus Glass Company but the blank is by the West Virginia Specialty Glass Company. Tall and stunning and ready for a rose.

 Made in  Bristol Vermont, this Moutain Kiln Pottery 5 inch tall blue maple syrup jug was made by either John F. Kennedy  or Paul T. Kennedy, brothers who formed Green Mountain Wood Crafters in Charlotte Vermont in 1937 and worked there until a fire in 1942. 


Post WWII, they were located in Bristol Vermont until 1959. They moved into the former Sheffield Farms building on Route 22A in Vergennes in 1960, adding a gift shop where tourists were able to watch the wood ware being made.  From 1960-1980 they had several retail locations in Florida, New York, New Hampshire but the most successful was in downtown Burlington at the corner of College and Church street, now Sweetwater's restaurant since 1980, though the Kennedy family still owns the building. 


The earliest piece I have heard of is a pitcher dated 1947. I do not yet know when the pottery stopped operating. I now know that whichever brother was not involved with the wooden ware Vergennes operation opened a store in New Haven, VT which was operating as late as 1971 when an acquaintance's grandmother stopped and bought some pottery marked as Pittsfield Potters there.


In excellent condition, it is glazed in a light blue glaze.  It is marked with the incised initials MKP and Bristol, VT.

These 1970s Libbey Glass Company cocktail glasses are from the "Classic" Line, the same shapes as on Libbey's well known Golden and Silver Foilage lines.  When you REALLY need a good quantity of liquor, Libbey had this size that it called the double old fashioned which stands 4 inches tall and holds 13 ounces if liquor...er...liquid.


 Libbey's "Classic" line dates from the late 1950s - early 1960s. They come in a smoky gray color they first named "Charcoal" then later changed the name to "Smoke" and a smoky brown color they called "Tawny". These are the gray ones. Simple sleek upswept styling on the sides with Libbey's patented "safe-edge" rims. They mix very well with Morgantown and Holmegaard pieces.

shines brightly as the gemstones are cradled in fourprong

These earrings are a thoughtful gift for the February birthday girl.

violet stones with hues ranging from light pink to a deep, rich purple. Amethyst is purple quartz, a

beautiful blend of violet and red that can found in every corner of the earth, and have been treasured throughout history. The Greeks

believed that amethyst could ward off intoxication, while medieval soldiers wore amethyst amulets to protect themselves in battle. Royals

have prized amethyst as well. After all, purple is a royal color. Amethyst gemstones are among the British Crown Jewels and were also a

favorite of Catherine the Great and Egyptian royalty. As the birthstone of February, amethyst jewelry is commonly given to commemorate a

February birth.

Here is a whimsical modern stoneware piece from the late David Gil at Bennington Potters in Vermont. started by David Gil 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. They made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware that was distributed throughout the US by Raymore and sold in fine department stores.


This is #1463 and was called Crown Safety Ashtray in the 1964 catalogue. It measures 4 1/2 inches wide and stands 2 1/4 inches tall to the top of the crowns. This was produced in four colors: White, Turquoise, Charcoal or Brown. This is the charcoal color. It is marked with the Cooperative Design Bennington Vermont rectangle mark which is a transitional mark used from 1960 to perhaps 1961.  However this shape was still shown in the 1970-1971 catalog and I don't know if they changed the marks or kept the transitional mark on this piece.


David Gil, trained at Alfred University and profiled in the Winter 1961 issue of Vermont Life, started Bennington Potters in 1948 in Bennington, VT right after WWII. 


Condition is excellent -- no chips, cracks, nicks, flakes, stains or other damage / problems.  <b>Our hostess celebrates Cupid’s day wearing a dress with red bodice, short sleeves and a skirt flocked with cupids and hearts.
