The family was selling many items from their mom, who had passed away about 3 years ago. She must have been a lover of mid-century or just a lady who couldn't throw anything away, because they had some very nice stuff.
|Odds & ends -- Melmac, chartreuse china, bakelite handled pickle forks|
|Some cool 1960s ivy painted glasses and a tiny pitcher|
|A covered casserole with great decoration|
|A very unusual tall triangle lucite pitcher -- with a handle at the bottom and turquoise & yellow plaid side.|
|A kitty cookie jar -- no maker's mark or identifier|
Here are the day's best mid-century finds -- a Metlox Poppytrail Swordfish vase (art pottery designed and signed by Romanelli) and 2 Poppytrail spiral candleholders. They're so fine! The only flaw is a VERY tiny flea bite on the end of the swordfish's nose (bill? sword? -- whatever it's called). I just love these!
Another great find was this glass ceiling light cover with cowboys on bucking broncos. It's also in near-mint condition with no color loss. It had hung in the seller's brother's bedroom the whole time they were growing up, was taken down and immediately packed away. Lucky for me!
