List of Items
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.  


Add it to your Art Deco or Noritake Art Deco collection today.  This style glass was in the Culver line as early as the 1950s and is still shown in the 1966 catalog which is included in Monograph 82 published by the West Virginia Museum of American Glass in 2008. The monograph has 80 pages of information on Culver. It is one of their most popular patterns!


In the 1965 catalog a set of eight of these footed cocktail glasses in the Prado pattern cost $6.00. $6.00! Try to buy a single glass today for that amount. Culver is one of the most collected Midcentury vintage barware producers. 


Here is some info: The Culver Glass company began in Brooklyn, New York in 1939, founded by Irving Rothenberg. Culver Glass features real 22-karat gold decoration, used effusively and magnificently especially from the late 1950s on through the 1960s. The super-heated, roll-on process of gold remains a secret today. This secret perished with Mark Rosenberg, Irving's son, who was one of the passengers on the hijacked Newark-to-San-Francisco flight that crashed in Pennsylvania.


Found online at classyconcotions.wordpress.com: "The patterns of Culver are extensive from gilded mushrooms, owls, cats, wildlife, Egyptian or Asian inspired design themes, scrolling leaf patterns, holiday designs, sports motifs and many others. The gilded Moroccan-style trellis and raised emerald-green diamonds of the ‘Valencia‘ pattern become their most popular pattern in cocktailware."  Lucite was considered a "space age" material after WWII although it was invented in the 1930s by DuPont. It found its way into all sorts of decorative giftware for the home, culminating perhaps in the 1970-1980 time period when it was used for wild very high end furniture. 

This 7 inch wide molded lucite trivet stand 1 inch tall and has three molded feet, here covered with protective felt pads by the original owner. I love the juxtaposition of the natural pressed flowers and ferns with the hard clear space age lucite! Two daises and two violets decorated this useful practical form, a trivet.


Given the "flower power" motif, this was most likely produced in the 1968-1978 period when the design world followed the lead of pop culture back to nature. In were the earth tones, mushroom motifs, and flowers aplenty.  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. 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 3/4 inch tall vase is signed simply with her MM initials. The background is a off white which really makes the design pop. The hearts are a purple color with a blue above them. 

This shape was also sold with a matching ceramic ball attached to a wick to use it as an oil lamp.

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.  Made by Hazel Atlas in the 1950s, this pattern can be found on a cocktail shaker cocktail tray and both highball tumblers and these whiskey glasses  as well as these more general "beverage" glasses (shown in next separate listing). 


The red and black band around the top part of each glass are like a stage curtain highlighting the black slat wooden bar behind which a mustachioed bartender is mixing drinks. To his right is a dapper gentleman customer holding a drink and standing next to a brass spittoon. To the left of the bartender is a lady raising her glass. She is wearing a bustle and carrying a parasol. A dog is near her feet. Hey, wait a minute, what is a lady doing in a saloon? 


These glasses are signed with the Hazel Atlas logo thus identifying the maker.

Get your craft or classic cocktail recipes ready!  What a great looking set of cocktail glasses. This shape was marketed by many companies in the 1950-1975 time period as both a "low champagne" glass and a "sherbet" glass. Why not? Works for me!


I know they are American but have not yet succeeded in identifying the company which made them. As they say, research continues.... They stand 3" tall x 3 1/2 inches wide and feature a 3/8 inch silver rim. All are etched with a very classic "M" in a Gothic font I think. Know someone whose first or last name starts with the letter M? Well, of course you do!

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! 


The set is now for sale for $32 for the set of four, that's only $8 each!  Effanbee 2016 10 inch hard plastic and vinyl Patsy's A Vision in Velvet doll, No. E16PTDD02  has pale blonde rooted hair styled in bob with bangs and a red bow, brownish hazel  inset eyes with applied lashes, bisque skin-tone, and a bend knee child's body with bending elbows and wrists. Her body is the same size as the Ann Estelle dolls. Her ensemble includes a red ve;vet dress trimmed with red ribbon and red cloth roses, an attached white slip with white lace,  white lace tights, white cotton panties, and deep red imitation leather mary jane shoes.  Limited edition of 500. New,  mint-in-the-box. Expand listing to view all 4 photographs.  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.


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.  From 1937-1954 the Fostoria Glass Company used this cutting known as Lido to add decoration to items in their Baroque (shape) Line. This is a footed comport but would be probably also considered as footed candy dish. The cutting looks like fronds of a palm tree or exploding fireworks. It stands a little over 5 inches tall. An American Art Deco shape and decoration. 


This is a sweet little gem! How about using it on Valentine's Day to present "a little something". Many a bride in the that time period received the Baroque pattern as a wedding gift. It is a huge line with a huge variety of shapes available. It is in excellent condition.

Viking Glass Company 7 inch tall avocado green Epic Line (1957-1970) Six Petal #1436 vase with original paper label:


This striking and elegant example of American Art Glass was produced by the Viking Glass Company as part of their "Epic" line. This Viking Epic vase was shown in the 1957-1960 Viking catalogs. It measures 7 1/2 inches tall. 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.


This line was full of biomorphic shapes most likely inspired by what was being produced in Scandanavia and Denmark at the time. It is a striking color and it's a modern shape and would blend in well with many Midcentury Modern decors as an accent piece.  Ever need four identical shot glasses? Well, of course you do for the next time you want to do "shots" at one of your cocktail parties for four!


A heavy band of high quality silver is found on these glasses. I suspect with their slightly recessed bases and the quality of the silver that they may be by Dorothy Thorpe from her line of barware. Excellent condition.  "Fit for a king." We have all heard that expression I am sure. How about "fit for an Emperor" for this set of clear glass with golden Roman coins on each 3 1/8 inch tall glass. This shape is called a Roly Poly. I am not sure which American glass company made them. How about crafting a fitting classic Italian inspired cocktail for these? Seal of the city of Rome, Augustus, Coliseum, all await you as you raise your glass. This set of four will soon be for sale at Barge Canal Market in Burlington Vermont. Add them to your vintage Midcentury inspired home bar and get ready to celebrate in style.  Know someone who loves ducks? This etched pattern is known as "Ducks in Flight". It was used extensively on barware and both hand-hammered and stamped aluminum giftware in the 1945-1970 time period. It certainly adds elegance to this set. 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. The bottom of each glass has a molded textured grid pattern. I am not sure which company produced the glasses but I feel they are made in the USA.


Each glass holds 8 ounces. 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 "Ducks in Flight" glasses? Manhattan maybe?

This set of 4 vintage stamped aluminum 3 1/8 inch bar coasters features a very popular motif of a spray of flowers which was often used on all sorts of decorative articles or housewares in the 1945-1970 time period. 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. 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. Buy them now.  This lot consists of 4 Thermo-Temp Insulated Ware hiball or zombie glasses, all standing 6 inches tall x 3 inches wide. All are in great vintage condition. One is in Aqua, one  in Carnation Pink, one in salmon, one in lemon yellow.


These were part of a line called Thermo-Temp, made by the Mallory Randall Corp, Brooklyn New York. Mallory Randall started in business in 1947 and primarily engaged in the design, manufacture, and sale of food and drink accessories. Mallory Randall also made lines called Malloware and Mallo Belle melmac dinnerware!


This line is funky and would fit right in with a tiki bar or retro bar. They would also go well with Russel Wright dinnerware colors! A clear plastic outside layer permits one to see the raffia or burlap fabric in the middle layer. The inside is colored plastic. I have now seen 13 colors in this line: Mint green, Pink, Dark Pink (hot pink), Peach, Light Blue / Turquoise, 

Avocado green, Lemon Yellow, Lime Green, Purple (on brownish side), Pumpkin Orange/ Salmon, Mocha. Beige, and Chartreuse


What made these great and still makes them useful for picnic or camping or just plain yee-haw retro fun is that these cups are for either hot or cold drinks. Whether iced tea, lemonade, java, or hot chocolate with mini marshmallows floating on top, this is a fun way to serve them.


At an antique show where I set up to sell here in Vermont, I learned from a few boomers that this pattern was distributed through gas stations in the late 1950s and 1960s here in New England.

This is a sweet little gem!  Though it was marketed as a "cheese stand", This footed pedestal stand is ready for some bonbons or perhaps one perfectly iced and decorated cupcake. How about using it on Valentine's Day to present "a little something". 


The etching on this is one of the most popular etchings ever done by the Cambridge Glass Company, made between 1934-1958. It is called Rose point. Many a bride in the that time period received this as a wedding gift. It is a huge line with hundreds of shapes available.  It is in excellent condition. Replacements has it listed as $59.95. Since I found it very reasonably, I would like to pass it on to a collector or someone who will treasure it for a reasonable price.  Imagine these on the middle of your table setting.  The mold was done by the New Martinsville Company which became the Viking Glass Company. This color however, this light blue, was made in these molds later by Viking.  Excellent condition and ready for your decorating needs.  This classic vintage stainless steel cocktail shaker stands 10 inches tall and is unsigned. The shape of this vintage cocktail shaker is a classic Art Deco shape but since it is made out of stainless steel it is most likely from the 1960s. The cap doubles as a jigger. The metal top has the strainer at the top for easy pouring. This is no new reproduction. It is patinated in black to contrast with the stainless steel top and bands at the bottom. 


So, with all the great vintage cocktail recipes out there, which one would you choose to make for this sleek beauty?  Info from the fabulous corningware411.com:


"Centura (1966-1977) is kind of like the older brother, or sister, of Corelle. It's similar to Corningware, in that it is a type of Pyroceram, but unlike Corningware, it is glazed. Corningware is self glazing, in that it forms it's own smooth shiny surface during the crystallization process that changes it from a glass to a glass-ceramic. Unlike Corningware, and Corelle for that matter, Centura suffers from microwave incompatibility and could not be used on the stovetop. I believe that was ultimately the cause of its downfall. Evidently, like some Pfaltzgraff (i.e. mom's grape pattern), it absorbs Microwave energy and gets really hot, while the food stays cold." 


It comes in about 30 different patterns. This pattern is called April Tulip. It was produced from1972-77 thus the pattern is harder to find than many others in Centura. This one features abstract small tulips and leaves separated by vertical green dots in t he bottom row. The tulips are harvest gold, orange, and pink while the leaves are green. Elegant and cute. The style of this 5 1/2 inch wide x 1 3/4 inch tall bowl is known as a "coupe" style which was so popular in the Midcentury period. This was advertised as a cereal bowl but its size makes it perfect for all sorts of serving uses.

Well now, if you started on one of the 7 recipes and made it around the shaker, who knows what type of outfit you would be wearing!! This shaker stands 7 inches tall to the top of the black plastic lid. What is interesting is that the lid has an offset top which covers the built in strainer. Most often, when one finds these cocktail shakers they are missing the original plastic lid. Here is what a complete one looks like. I suspect Hazel-Atlas as the maker of this shaker but I am not sure. I do believe it is American made in the 1950-1970 Midcentury time period.


Cheers! Now where did I put that kilt!!  set of 4 Midcentury smoke gray 3 1/4 inch rocks glasses with T Monogram:


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?  LIBBEY Glass Company of Toledo Ohio first introduced this exquisite pattern (Golden & Silver Foliage) in their 1957 - 1958 catalog It was very popular than and some 50 years later, it is still very popular. The gold used in the decorations is 22K - the silver is Palladium.


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.


There is a silver band at the top of each wine. Each wine holds exactly 5 ounces! So, break out the Cab or Pinot Grigio and toast your family and friends.

Sturdy, dependable, dishwasher-friendly, it is ready for your dining table today.  These Libbey Accent line 9 ounce Rocks glasses were #374 in their 1970-1979 catalogs. 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.


Add it to your American Studio pottery collection today.  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.

Libbey glass set 4 golf Country Garden 1

Libbey set 4 1980s Golf tee and Golf Ball 14 oz. double old fashioned rocks glasses:


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. Introduced in the 1960s by the Morgantown Glass Company as line #9935, part of their Midcentury Decor Line. They are about 3 13/16 inches high and 2 3/8 inches diameter.  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.

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.

Katherine Nelson.


From 1937-1939 he was a classmate of Glidden Parker. He had his studio in Burlington Vermont from 1946 -1960 until his untimely tragic death in February 1960. 



Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard who worked in the Burlington area, this 4 1/4 inch high vase has a nice early green glaze on it. Excellent condtion.


It carries a #20 shape number. Add it to your American Art Pottery collection or Stanley Ballard collection today.  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?

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. Add it to your Mid-century Eames era enamel collection today.

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.

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>The Barrel Shack’s Mandy helps you display your own unique sense of style through reclaimed and repurposed materials like canvas from military tents and old goat leather sofas.
