Each of these little gems stands 6 inches tall. A frosted band shows off 4 stylized abstract Mid-century leaf designs. Three are of one stem type and two are of another stem type but they match well.

The color is a smoky brown clear color they named tawny. The shape and the decoration were designed by one of the few female industrial designers. Her name was Freda Diamond (1905-1998) and she was the head designer at Libbey Glass Company from 1942-1979. She helped them pioneer inexpensive highly decorative tumblers, stemware and barware. She is responsible for the Accent, Impromptu, Ripple, Tempo, Stardust lines and many more. Life magazine named her "Designer for Everybody" in 1954. The decorative motif on this line was called Brown Camelia. It was produced for one year only in 1973. I like the very graphic pop art flower power feel of the design. Here is how it was advertised when it was introduced in the 1970 Pacesetter Catalog: "Here's stemware for today ... Stemware with style that's just right for the informal dining and entertaining of America's lifestyle in the 70s." This Accent line won an award in the 1970 National Housewares Manufacturers Design Competition. On 1972 it was advertised as "Bold, formal, casual, Old World look or New. Over the 9 years it was available in these colors: crystal (9 years), Tawny (9 years), Olive (6 years), Dusky Blue (2 years) and Gold (2 years). A modern classic. indeed.  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."  Here is the vintage 1975-1979/1983 16 ounce "Cooler" size of Libbey's Country Garden line in gold.  Excellent condition.

This set of Libbey double old fashioned glasses is in its original packaging. It includes its patent numbers: 4,735,314, 4,875,585 and 4,890,737 as well as a Canada Patent 1989 1,253,464.


The design of the package is pretty underwhelming as opposed to the great boxes and graphic design in the 1950-1970 period. I will probably take them out of the package to sell them as I have not yet seen much collector interest among the vintage barware buyers.


So, here ya go. 14 ounces of space to be filled with liquor....er....liquid.  I suggest you fill them after you play a round of golf, but, hey, you never know what might improve your golf game. ;)  A very nice Peacock blue pair of candleholders in the popular Barton pattern.

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?  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.

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 1975. 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.


It measures 8 1/2 inches long x 6 inches wide. The color of the glass? Avocado green, baby! The company called it "olive green". It is ready to sit on your Midcentury Modern credenza and give it a pop of late 1960s color.  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.

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?

Like Winter, he studied at the Vienna Kunstgewerbeschule from 1927 to 1932 under such greats as Michael Powolny and Josef Hoffman.   In fact, It is Tischler who is credited with getting Edward Winter accepted into the school, according to the information on page 275 of the Painting with Fire exhibit companion catalog produced the the Long Beach Museum of Art, whose groundbreaking seminal exhibit opened in January 2007.


In 1935, Tischler visited Winter in Cleveland. During the visit he saw Winter's signature enameling method of immersing the metal in liquid enamel to achieve better coating than simply sifting powdered enamel on the surface. Tischler quickly also adopted this methold which accounts for the similarity in design between the two men's works.


His work was featured in the 1970 Edward Winter book called Enamel Painting Techniques. He died in 1993 at age 100. 


This piece features a black background over which the gold strizzle pattern was placed. The mold has some fluting to the sides, dividing the rim into four sections. The back is counter-enameled in black and is signed in inscribed block letters H. Tischler. It is in excellent condition.  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. She has exhibited in Frog Hollow for many years. Her wax techniques outlines elements of her design. 

This is one of my favorite designs by Vermont studio potter Marcy Mayforth. I own this design in two large mixing bowls and a very large low round platter. 

Marcy created these designs using the classical wax resist method. This 3 3/4 inch tall vase is signed simply with her MM initials. The background is a light celadon green 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.

 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.

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.  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.

 

So, crack open that vintage cocktail recipe book or read a recipe off the side of a Midcentury cocktail shaker and serve them up .... In style. 


Price is for the set.  Done by Lincoln Vermont potter Marcy Mayforth, this is a 1994 dated 5 1/4 inch tall pink tulip pitcher. The design is done in the sgraffito technique, then fill in as in an enamel piece. There are three pink and blue tulips blossoms on the piece, which is signed Mayforth 94 on the bottom. It is in excellent shape.

Information from the The Complete Guide to Corning Ware & Visions Cookware book by Kyle Coroneos. The Floral Bouquet pattern  was introduced in 1971. It contains the then popular colors of yellow and avocado green as well as blue. It comes in two versions. The first harder to find version has the pattern on all sides in a wrap around fashion was made for only one year before Corning redesigned the line. The second and more easily found version has the pattern on the front and back only.


This casserole is from the A Series which was introduced in 1972 and ended in 1987.


This A-1-B Floral Bouquet Covered Saucepan was made between 1972-1975. It is being sold with the C-7 lid as shown. It holds 1 quart. The Floral Bouquet pattern is shown on page 74-78 of Coroneos' 2006 guide titled The Complete Guide to Corning Ware & Visions Cookware.


Excellent vintage condition. No damage of any kind.


Using Corning items is an easy way to bake casseroles, gratins or use them as serving dishes. Retro pratical flair. I bought it very reasonably so can pass them on reasonably as well.

Sturdy, dependable, dishwasher-friendly, it is ready for your kitchen table today.  Here is a whimsical modern stoneware piece from David Gil at Bennington Potters in Vermont. It is from the 1955-1960 period. Bennington by Gil started 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 and sold in fine department stores but this is an earlier more studio inspired piece. 


Marked #1541 this is a stylized pig in a highly abstract style. David Gil designed a series of animal banks, including a hippo, an owl and a lion. This was called Penurious Pig! Like Glidden Parker in the early 1940s, Gil used various animal motifs often on his ware, though most are two dimensional representations. 


This fun and funky pig stands 4 1/2 inches tall to the top of its back x 8 inches long. The main portion of the bank is unglazed with some impressed asterisks covering the pig's body. The asterisks are in turquoise, one of four colors possible. It has the original red plastic cork to seal the opening on the bottom. It is signed Bennington Potters Bennington VT which places it in the 1962-1968 time period. This particular example has very  thick glaze on the bottom so the marks are hard to see. This pig back was shown in a 1967-68 catalogue along with the other nine shapes. 


This bank is in excellent condition with no damage. I have priced this Penurious Pig bank very fairly. It would make a stunning sculptural piece on a McCobb or Eames era credenza or coffee table.


David Gil was featured in the publication Vermont Life in its Winter 1961 issue. In an eight page spread with one full color image and 13 black and white images, there is a full history of the founding of the pottery along with great visual references of the ware being made at that time. One can see the iconic designs of Yusuke Aida, especially the double trigger mug and coffeepot along with other fascinating items. A great reference!  In 1974 Dansk Designs changed their name to Dansk Designs International. So, this pair of heavy full lead crystal candleholders was most likely made in the 1970s. It was made in Japan as the label states. Both candleholders have their original label.


The form of this candleholder is very biomorphic with rounded corners on top. Each holder stands 2 inches tall and is 4 inches wide. Because they are 100% full lead crystal, they are perfectly clear and have a certain sculptural quality. The designer of this shape is Jens Quistgaard, who was the lead designer when the Nierenbergs opened their business in Mount Kisco, New York

According to wikipedia, "by 1982 Quistgaard had created more than 2000 different designs for Dansk of dinnerware, glassware and items for the home."


This pair of Dansk candleholders would look stunning in the right Midcentury decor.  The "Irvinware" mark was registered to the Leonard Silver Manufacturing Company, Inc of Boston MA.  The company registered this trademark in April 1968. 


The patent description includes:  stainless steel giftware, hollow ware, bar accessories and kitchen utensils, e.g., lemon and lime squeezer, container opener, cocktail strainer, bar spoon, ice tongs, double jigger, cork screw, bottle pourer, mixer glass, cocktail set, cocktail shaker, bar caddy, ice crusher, and relish fork". 


Whew!!  Talk about bar accessories!


This vintage ice tub stands 7 3/4 inches tall (not including the cover and bail) x 7 1/4 inches wide. Now this holds a LOT of ice! It is singed on the bottom with a stamped raised mark which states Irvinware.


It is in excellent vintage shape.  It is ready for your next cocktail party

The Seneca Glass Company operated from 1891 to 1983. The original factory was in Fostoria, Ohio (built, then vacated by Fostoria). Some time later, a new factory was built along the Monongahela River in Morgantown, West Virginia. Seneca's factory was next to the Morgantown Glass Works and two doors down from Beaumont Glass. This proximity led to the companies "borrowing" designs from one another and at times making or decorating glass for each other. The full name of line #1980 is Driftwood Casual, often shortened to Driftwood.


Driftwood Casual was produced from 1953-1983 and is available in a rainbow of colors, though not all pieces will be found in every color. Official colors names are Accent Red, Amber, Buttercup (later called Yellow), Charm Blue, Cinnamon (sometimes called Brown), Crystal, Delphine Blue, Gray, Heather, Lime Green, Moss Green, Peacock Blue, Plum, and Ritz Blue.


This is their #10561 Seneca Driftwood Moss Green 32 oz pitcher, shown here with a pair of Driftwood Moss Green 3 3/8 inch tall cocktail glasses. Moss Green was Seneca's name for the very popular shade of green known as avocado green.
