The blue cornflower which is found on 90 plus pieces of Corning's Pyroceram ware debuted in 1957 and was retired in 1987. 


This P-104 6 cup teapot was made between 1960 and 1987.   It is shown on page 31 of Coroneos' 2006 guide titled The Complete Guide to Corning Ware & Visions Cookware.


Retro pratical flair. I bought it very reasonably so can pass it on reasonably as well. 


Go green! Save resources and purchase a piece of America's past. Sturdy, dependable, dishwasher-friendly, it is ready for your kitchen table 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?  The Spring Blossom Green pattern made its debut in 1972 as part of the "Pyrex Compatibles" to match the Corelle Dinnerware pattern and was designed by Sara Balbach. The elements of the design are highly stylized: flowers in avocado green and white outlined in avocado green with green dots and white dots outlined in avocado green. 


This set of four Diagonal handle #1410 Coffee Mugs has the Butterfly Gold design around the top.

Add it to your Art Deco or Consolidated glass collection today.  Measuring 12 1/2 inches long x 6 inches wide, this bowl by Mid-Century enamelist Harold Tischler clearly shows the influence of Edward Winter.  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.  <b>Celebrate our historical past with the Armstrong by The Barrel Shack.

 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.

Mountain Kiln Pottery Vermont maple syru $18.00

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.


A beautiful piece by a well-respected Vermont potter whose work has been seen at Frog Hollow Crafts gallery in Burlington Vermont and Middlebury Vermont for many years.  McKee Art Deco Rock Crystal clear 8 ounce footed goblet standing 6 1/4 inches tall in excellent condition.

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. 


Go green! Save resources and purchase a piece of America's past. 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.

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!

Why not enjoy your tea or coffee from this hand-thrown beautifully glazed handleless mug or perhaps small vase created by one of the pioneers of the Midcentury 20th century Vermont Studio Potters movement?


This 3 1/2 inch tall handleless mug was created by renowned Vermont Midcentury studio potter George Scatchard. It has a deep cobalt blue interior glaze and his trademark brown glaze with 7 blue triangles on its exterior. 


It is signed with his characteristic G. Scatchard incised signature.


He was 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.

Add it to your 20th century American Studio pottery collection today.  Introduced by Libbey Glass Company of Toledo Ohio in their 1955 Fall Catalog, here is how this line was described to retailers:  


"Formerly known as St. Moriz. Smart, new tumbler shape with textured surface suggesting cool, refreshing beverages. Sparkling crystal glass with heavy base in four sizes. Ideal for merchandising popular "On-The-Rocks" and "Gin and Tonic" drinks."


In the Fall-Winter 1957 catalog on page 19:  "Smart new shapes with a textured surface suggesting melting ice. Ideal for the currently popular On-The-Rocks and Gin-and-Tonic"


This line came in four sizes:


#5147:  Jigger, 1 1/2 oz

#5148:  On-The-Rocks, 7 oz

#5149:  Gin-and-Tonic, 10 oz

#5144:  Cooler, 12 oz.


Yet another design by the highly talented lead designer for Libbey from 1942-1979, Freda Diamond!  Made by the Tarentum Glass Company of Tarentum PA circa 1899, this TP - custard toothpick holder in the what has been known as the Harvard pattern is a souvenir of North Troy Vermont.  In addition it has the name Kelly on it so a personalized souvenir. According to page 177 of the Bredehoft book, the original name of this pattern was the Columbia. It is 2 1/4 inches tall x 2 inches wide. They value the custard or ivory toothpick holder at $80.


I am a long time member and past President (1988) of the National Toothpick Holder Collectors Club. I guarantee the authenticity of this TP. For more info on toothpick holders as a great collectible, visit the National Toothpick Holder Collectors Society web page at (www.nthcs.org)

According to the Mauzy book on pages 148-150, this pair of 3 3/4 inch tall tumblers is from the 1934-1950 Moderntone line by the Hazel-Atlas Glass Company.


"Basic dinnerware pieces are abundant which means it will not take a major investment to amass multiple place settings. A handful of items are more expensive including certain bowls and tumblers as shown on the price list."


On that price list on page 150, a single 3.5 inch cobalt juice tumbler lists for $65. Now this book was published in 1999 and prices have come down quite a bit since. In the 18th Edition of the Florence book published in 2008, on page 135, this juice tumbler still lists for $65. It is considered very hard to find.


I bought them very reasonably so I can offer the pair here for $60. That's right, $30 each. 


 Freda Diamond (1905-1998), "Designer for Everybody" - Libbey Glass Designer


Worked for Libbey from 1942-1979. From 1942 to 1979 she was the primary designer for the Libbey Glass Company, helping them pioneer in the production of inexpensive, highly decorative tumblers, stemware, and other pieces. Among the many patterns she was responsible for include Ripple, Tempo, Emerald Glass, Stardust, and many others that we grew up with in the 1950s and 1960s.


Named the "Designer for Everybody" by Life magazine in 1954, Freda Diamond enjoyed a highly successful, fifty-year career as a home furnishings consultant. From the 1930s through the 1980s, Diamond helped firms in many American industries to design affordable products for the mass market. If someone you know set up housekeeping in the mid-twentieth century, they probably owned something -- cabinets, drapes, kitchen canisters, plastic furniture, tables, lamps, mirrors, rugs, drinking glasses, or window shades -- designed by Freda Diamond.


From the 1957 catalog, here is their marketing language for the 1955-1963 Ripple Line: "Exciting Aqua color that "goes with anything" … rippling circles blown on inner surfaces give sparkling, changing, color … an important ingredient of Libbey’s "table recipes" for "setting an imaginative table".


Shown in this photo is a set of the 3 3/8 inch tall 6 oz Juicee glasses in Aqua.


In the 1955 catalog, Libbey introduced an exciting new line by Freda Diamond: the Ripple Line in Aqua in five shapes. In the 1959 Fall - 1960 Winter catalog they introduced the "Smoke" color in Ripple. The Mint color was added in 1961 along with Crystal. In 1962 a new color Amethyst was introduced. It exists also in their Gold color but I am not sure when it was in the line.  Libbey Tawny Accent #3755 11 1/4 ounce footed goblets - Here is the language Libbey used in their 1973 catalog to describe their expanded successful Accent line which included this 11 1/4 ounce footed goblet:


"Libby's glassware answer for any style of life. Bold, formal, casual, Old World look or New. Blends well with practically everything from fine china to casual earthenware.With its beautiful upswept profile and rich earth color, Tawny Accent is a Mediterranean design delight.

Perfect shelf companions for Libbey's new Crystal Accent.Stock them. Display them. Your customers will want them all. Contemporary tumblers also available in Olive, and Dusky Blue." 


Cabernet Sauvignon? Riesling? Pinot Noir? How about just a big ole cocktail? Time for some wine ...or....juice...or maybe a big cocktail then in vintage barware!  This 7 3/4 inch long x 4 inch wide covered cigarette box was made by the Bitossi company of Montelupo Italy and imported into the US by the Rosenthal-Netter company as this particular design has been found with the original paper label. 


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 with no chips to the corners of the lid or the bottom. I bought it in 2000. Time to pass it along to a Bitossi Midcentury Italian pottery collector


It would look stunning on a Midcentury modern coffee table or end table.

Cabernet Sauvignon? Riesling? Pinot Noir? Time for some wine ...or....juice...or maybe a small cocktail then in vintage barware!  Collectors of vintage American Midcentury barware most often refer to this pattern as Capri Dots. In reality, the pattern name is "Capri Skol", made by the Hazel Atlas Glass Company in the 1960s. It exists in 9 different shapes. This is a set of the 3 3/8" tall old fashioned glasses.  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.

Yes, folks, this footed shape was often advertised with a dual purpose of serving a dessert or champagne.


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.  


So, get your tray ready to carry these filled with your favorite dessert out to the patio or veranda or just end your meal with a fine example of American made glass:  Lido!  Forest green and chartreuse bands with two sets of black ovals as decoration. 5 1/2 inches tall. Fifties colors, yessiree! Made by Libbey Glass, these tumblers would complement many of the Midcentury dinnerware lines such as Fiesta, Harlequin, Rhythm, and many more! I love the bold black ovals which are in two groups on the funky and pop art glasses. A Freda Diamond design for Libbey i am certain. Be it a cocktail or lemonade or an iced coffee, what would YOU serve in them?  Here are the 12 ounce size from the 1973 Libbey Accent Line in tawny brown color with the Brown Camelia design on them. Very hard to find. One of Freda Diamond's best designs for Libbey. Bigger taller glasses? More cocktails fit!!
