We bought these items this week – most of them from one local contact actually. It’s quite a mid century modern collection!
Two lovely bits of German pottery for starters – they’re both by Dumler & Breiden. We love the colour contrast and striking repeat pattern of the bowl. The vase has a very distinctive form similar to another piece we’ve got. The combination of thick, textured glaze to the sides and smooth vibrant orange glaze highlighting the holes & vase rim is very effective. We’re trying to be quite strict with ourselves these days, but that’s probably a keeper!
And yet more flashes of orange with the desk lamp & cased glass vase. The lamp, dating from the 60s/70s, is adjustable and has a label for ‘1001 Lamps Ltd’ of London. The vase is unmarked, but dates from the same period.
There’s another nice table lamp in view, this one being teak with a fibreglass shade. The base looks very Danish.
And, staying with the Scandinavian theme, we have some interesting stainless steel pieces. The snack tray is Danish and quite an unusual shape; the pair of matching vases were made in Sweden. There’s some lovely Tupperware spice pots too – both colourful & practical.
…and then there’s the classic 1950s atomic zig-zag coat rack. We’ve had lots of these and grab them whenever we see them – they’re always really popular with our customers.
And last but not least, the teak drinks trolley that the items are sitting on.
This is a lovely piece of furniture dating from the 1960s. It has the ‘Remploy’ label to the base.
It’s got a great look, it’s useful and is in excellent condition. Did we say we were trying to be strict with ourselves?!
