I am pleased to offer this BEAUTIFUL Vintage Authentic Blenko 966 Freeform Ashtray, Winslow Anderson, Ice Blue, ca. 1951-1953. This ashtray designed by Winslow Anderson was first in production in 1952. Beautiful thick, heavy glass. SIZE: widest part is 8" x 7"; 1 1/2" tall; 8 1/2" x 9" across back. Weight: 2 lbs 8 oz.  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."  Set 4 vintage game bird hiball glasses: This set contains one Hazel Atlas hiball and three Federal hiballs


There is a long tradition of depicting hunting on American vintage barware. Here shown is pheasant hunting. On the Hazel-Atlas one, the hunter with gun and his hunting dog are shown in yellow at the very bottom of the glass giving the scene perspective while four pheasants and three ducks fly overhead. On the Federal ones, a pointer is shown in black and white in the reeds with 4 pheasant taking to the air above him.  They are in great vintage condition.  This set of four 3 1/2 inch tall 6 ounce old fashioned glasses is made by the Continental Can Company whose original name was the Hazel-Atlas Glass Company. Formed in 1885, in 1956, Hazel-Atlas Glass Corporation became Continental Can in 1956. the Continental Can Company sold out to Brockway Glass in 1964. Their mark under the Continental Can Company name consists of three concentric "C"s. So, these glasses were made between 1956-1964.


It features the blue Wedgwood color so popular in their Hellenic series but the scenes on the glasses are of Egypt not Greece. There is a thin band of hieroglyphics around the top with a larger band including Egyptian figures around the main body of the glass. The bottom is solid glass and weighted for great stability.


So, which classic Egyptian cocktails come to mind? Er......how about just a classic cocktail recipe to make and serve in these Midcentury vintage cocktail glasses.

The Anchor Hocking Company called this pattern their "Padoga" pattern and this color "avocado green" which was produced along with "honey gold" and "lazer blue". Like Libbey with the its 1971-1975 Artica line, Anchor Hocking created a pattern of highly textured surface to compete in the marketplace. Round at the top but square above the pedestal foot, the line also shows the Scandinavian influence started by Iittala of Finland whose Ultima Thule line for the Finnair airline designed by Tapio Wirkkala in 1970. This Pagoda line exists in honey gold and avocado green but is most collectable in the laser blue color. 

There are seven shapes in this fun line: 1) a 3 3/4 5 inch 5 oz. flat juice glass, 2) a 3 1/8 inch 9 oz. flat old fashioned (rocks) glass, 3) a 5 inch 12 oz. flat tumbler, 4) a 5 1/2 inch 16 ounce flat tumbler, 5) a 6 7/8 inch 23 ounce flat tumbler, and two pitcher shapes


So, which classic or craft cocktail would you create?  The Anchor Hocking Company called this pattern their "Padoga" pattern and this color "honey gold", along with "avocado green" and "lazer blue".

So, which classic or craft cocktail would you create?  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.

The Spice O' Life pattern was introduced by Corning in 1972 and discontinued in 1987. Many people can clearly remember this pattern on a piece of Corning coming to the Thanksgiving or holiday table. It was the second most produced pattern and can be found easily. 

I found this information interesting in Kyle Coroneos' book: "Spice O' Life is a good example of the Corning Glass Works' French connection. Corning had conducted business in France ever since the early 1900s, and Amory Houghton Sr., one of the prominent Houghton-family executives of Corning, had served as an ambassador to France through the 1950s. Add this with the mystique surrounding the French culinary style and it is easy to see how French culture would find its way into the Corning Ware design. Later, Corning would release a 'French White'-style of Corning Ware. Visions also has a French connection. The clear Pyroceram originated in France at a Corning facility." This Corning P-104-8 Spice O' Life 6 cup teapot graced many a kitchen in its day, starting in 1972. Made by Corning and part of its iconic Corning Ware line, this teapot is as practical today as it was back then. You can use it directly on the stove to heat your water then drop in your tea bags. Now, who wants tea?  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?  Shown in the 1929 catalog reprint on page 32 and page 34 of Jack Wilson's 1989 book, this pair consists of the #1113 7 1/4 inch bread and butter plates, one in amethyst and one hard to find clear. These hard to find plates feature the swirls and uneven hand tooled rims that make this line so distinctive.


The Catalonian line was made from 1927 to most likely 1932 when the plant closed, then again between 1936-1940. It is not known if the line continued after the plant reopened in March 1936. 


It is in excellent condition.

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.  This vintage pattern was called Soreno and was made by the Anchor Hocking company from 1966-1970 when it was discontinued. It is also known as the Pressed Bark design. It came in an avocado green, a deep amber, a light blue, and clear. It was made to match the harvest gold and avocado time period, which was late 1960s. 


In that respect it is a great example of American glass tied to a design period. Fill it with iced tea, lemonade or something stronger!


This set consists of the 7 inch pitcher and two 5 inch tall tumblers.

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.  This vintage juice server is funky yellow!  Mod! Mod!  It stands 8 inches tall and has both silkscreened text and images of lemons and oranges on it. Excellent condition.  In 1979, Libbey introduced what I consider to be one of their most modern lines of barware. They named it the "Ice" line. Here is how they described it in the 1979 Premier catalog on page 57:


"Cool, icy and thirst quenching. Refreshments never looked better than in new Ice. Available in Crystal and Gold 24-pieces sets for maximum consumer appeal."


This line only existed for ONE year. It is very hard to find! It came in three sizes:  #2477 - 9 ounce Rocks, #2479 - 12 1/2 ounce Beverage, and #2474 - 16 1/2 ounce Cooler.


This set of four is the 12 1/2 ounce Beverage size. The color is a dark Tawny brown. Each glass stands 5 1/2 inches tall. All are in excellent condition. Add them to your midcentury or retro bar today.

This desk item from the 1950s-1960s is called a perpetual calendar.  At least that's the name I have found it described by.

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.

Sturdy, dependable, dishwasher-friendly, it is ready for your kitchen table today.  Produced by the Tex Glass Company of Decatur Texas, this is a set of six 5 1/4 inch tall 15 oz. flat tumblers in the ruby-flashed color. The Tex Glass Company was located in Decatur, Texas. The company was founded by Herman Rosenzwig after his family escaped Nazi Occupied Europe.

The "Line 700" line was originally called Martelé Line 700. This design debuted as part of the 1926 Martelé line. The design of vines and flowers was without a doubt inspired by Lalique's Sauterelle (Grasshopper) vase. The design minus the grasshoppers is on two vases in the original 1926 Martelé line: a 7" vase and a 10" vase. Consolidated expanded the design into its own line and introduced it to the glass trade in January 1929. If was offered in "jade, powder blue, honey, and crystal in a full line of flatware, bowls, and vases of various sizes." (Wilson page 60). According to Wilson, certain finishes on the 7" and 10" vases are hard to find including satin black, bright ruby red, matte red, and finishes on a custard glass base. Only the vases were made in these colors.
