Here’s a selection of vintage homewares that we added to the H is for Home webshop this weekend.
Some lovely Scandinavian pieces for kitchen/dining including the cow milk jug produced by Arabia and the Daisy cup & saucer by Figgjo Flint.
Also, this red enamel coffee pot designed by Anti Nurmesniemi for Finel – such a classic piece of Scandinavian mid century modern!
Moving a short distance across Europe to Germany – this trio of vases were designed by Cari Zalloni for Altenkunstadt Pottery. They’re from his ‘Cirkel’ range and the Op Art pattern is really striking. We’ve listed them separately, but they do look great grouped together. If you’d like to re-home them as a family, then we can do a special price on the three together!
These Babycham glasses were a good find. You quite often come across them looking a bit tired (well, they have been partying!). The logos & gold rims are often well rubbed, but these are absolutely mint in their original display box.
A bit more advertising ware. These milk bottles were popular in the 1970s & 80s – much more exciting that a drab Tetrapak carton! You could decant your milk into them to brighten up your morning cereal – or they’re perfect for cut flowers too.
We’ve been picking up a lot of industrial vintage items recently. These staplers fit in very well with that theme adding a vintage touch to a desk or shelf whilst remaining completely functional.
We often write posts that feature a certain week’s vintage homewares purchases – mini hauls. There’s only one way to describe this lot of items – a super haul!
We can’t actually take any credit for finding all these wonderful pieces. They were all hunted down by Emma Gladding, aka Wooden Donkey.
She has recently decided to call it a day in terms of trading and we said that we’d buy her remaining stock. Having agreed a price (a very fair price), seven boxes of vintage goodies duly arrived. Emma was very glad to get the space back in her house and we were very happy to get the booty – perfect outcome all round!
We definitely have similar tastes and it felt just like Christmas unwrapping all the wonderful things.
We might allow ourselves the odd treat, but we’ll be putting the majority of items into our web shop & antiques centre pitch over the coming weeks & months. Watch this space!
