 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.  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.  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.  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."

toothpick holder: Crider 1987 threaded 


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 39 years. He uses NO MOLDS and his only help has been his wife Donna. 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 dated 1987 on the base. 


This Crider 1987 amethyst base glass with applied threaded decoration is in a bulbous base shape. It's hard to imagine the amount of work that went into this beautiful, hand made toothpick holder. 


This little toothpick holder stands 2 inches high. It is a fantastic piece of American art glass! It is in perfect condition.  This Georges Scatchard set of 4 early 4 inch tall coffee mugs is a good example of the work that Scatchard was doing in the 1970s and early 1980s before he decided to concentrate primarily on lamps. The inside is glazed in a white glaze. You can see all the ridges of the hand thrown object. The outside of the goblet is done in his signature blue glaze and one can see both inclusions and the horizontal rings from the throwing. Each mug is signed on the  bottom G. SCATCHARD. A beautiful set. 


Currently 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.


His current website, gslamps.com, shows his current production and gives a brief history of his work.  Made in the style that Fantoni often used, this charming little 4 1/4 inch diameter hanging plate is marked "Made in Italy".  


It features a design of a still life of a purple and orange wine bottle and a yellow piece of fruit or perhaps a round loaf of bread.


Much ware in this style was made in the San Marino area of Italy in the 1950s-1970s for the tourist trade.  It is in excellent condition.    


Put it up on the wall of your Midcentury bar  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.

scarce signed 1972 Mark Peiser art glass vase.  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.


There are three different decorations visible on this set of four. Two have a pear, cherry, orange over a cluster of grapes. One has pineapple slices and three cherries over an orange slice over a basket of berries. The third variation is a lime and a lime slice over strawberries and cherries over a lemon slice over some leaves and a grapefruit and slice.


What a fun funky and festive set of glasses.  Wipe up a pitcher of sangria or just some iced tea, grab a tray and head for the patio or veranda. All are in excellent condition with strong colors and no damage to the silkscreened designs.  Price is for the set.

 Made by well-known San Francisco artist Win Ng and signed with his name and San Francisco, this beautiful 4 3/8 inch wide low bowl is a masterpiece of enamel. A Chinese American gay artist, Win Ng (1936-1991) was the subject of a recent 2005 retrospective at the Chinese Historical Society of America.  


Win Ng worked in enamel early on in his career. His primary work was in ceramics and fine art. He later partnered with Taylor to create the well-loved and collectible series of Animal Orgy mugs as well as high end kitcheware which carried the Taylor Ng mark.


This particular bowl has a deep blue and gold flecked background onto which various sized jewels in shades of cobalt blue, pink, green and red.  What is unusual is that the red and blue jewels were fired as a second layer over the first, giving the piece incredible depth. The rim and the back was left in its original copper with no counter-enameling and carries his cursive Win Ng signature as well as the letter number combination B4. The piece is signed San Francisco as well, much like the way pioneer California enamelist Jade Snow Wong signed her pieces. There are some areas on the back of enamel loss due to rubbing, but the front is in excellent condition and is a good early example of Win Ng's career. Add it to your Mid Century enamel collection today.  Annemarie Davidson (1920-2012) 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. Now in her late 80s, she no longer produces work today as of 2011 I have been told.


This 7 3/4 inch diameter low bowl, most likely from the 1960-1961 time period, is a good example of an earlier Ghostline piece. This plate features 3 large yellow gold jewels and 3 smaller pumpkin orange jewels, all symmetrically arranged on the plate. The lines are under the Jewels. A prominent Palm Springs CA dealer James Elliot-Bishop on his website has named this pattern as Ghostline. This particular example is unusual in that the two colors of jewels used are not in high contrast to each other as on many of her pieces. Also, this shape bowl was often used in the earlier 1958-1959 period.


The back of the plate has the gold paper label and is signed with her charcteristic AD interwined intiial. I believe this particular version of the label predates the more common one with the black line.  It reads Annemarie Davidson handcrafted enamels Sierra Madre California. Every piece was handcrafted by her alone, from start to finish. 


It is in excellent condition.

 Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard  who worked in the Burlington area, this single candleholder uses the stanard #74 wave underplate onto which a candleholder was sprigged. 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. It is in excellent condition.  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.

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.

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.
