Dessert and Coffee in these Lovely Dishes - Set of 8 like new for $10
Unusual combination of pressed/etched glass - Bowl 4.5 diameter 3 inches deep
Coffee Cup 2.5 inches diameter and 6.5 inches high (holds a full cup). Imagine finishing off a great meal with bread pudding or ice cream and coffee served up in these pretty dishes! The bowls are a perfect serving size.
Two Lovely Cardinal plates and one cardinal trivet $10
You may have to wrestle with me over these. They are so beautiful. The plates look like a gentle, yet vivid watercolor. These St. Nicholas Square plates are 9 inches in diameter. To assess the value and arrive at a fair price, I researched and found one of them for sale on EBay for $12.50. The 8 inch diameter trivet is from Sonoma and we all know how expensive they are. Imagine a quiche or a winter sandwich eaten with that special someone off this cardinal plate. You could pair the two of them together and use them as lovely serving dishes for some special holiday cookies. All three pieces in like new condition.
Matryoshka Doll plates (Russian nesting dolls) –
Brand new never used $10 – Four plates 8.5 inches diameter
Great gift—all you have to do is put a bow on the box!
The first Russian nested doll set was made in 1890 by Vasily Zvyozdochkin from a design by Sergey Malyutin, who was a folk crafts painter at Abramtsevo. Traditionally the outer layer is a woman, dressed in a sarafan, a long and shapeless traditional Russian peasant jumper dress. The figures inside may be of either gender; the smallest, innermost doll is typically a baby turned from a single piece of wood. This set of Russian Doll plates is from World Market and still has the price tag of $24.99 on the bottom of the box.
Leave the price tag on it (but you didn't hear that from me). My mother used to do that. She was a great bargain hunter. I remember one Christmas she sent me and my boys a giant box (about four feet high and five feet long). We could smell it even before we brought it into the house. She had been to a real fire sale and purchased a lot of stuff. You know there is always that dilemma surrounding gift-giving: Do I ask them what they want or do I get them what I think they need?
Still more to come . . .
Later today I’ll post more. For now I’ll leave you with information on one more item just to show you we have more than dinnerware and linens for sale.
Sunbeam Mixmaster 12 Speed Mixer 2 Bowls Beaters 1970 Harvest Gold $50
Yes we have one of these vintage mixmasters for sale. Charlie and I just tried it out this morning and it works great! In fact I need sometone to buy this fast before he does.
Here is what you get:
1. the Sunbeam Mixmaster with12 speeds you can select depending upon what you are mixing
2. Two sets of beaters (one for regular mixing and one for blending and mixing doughs)
3. Two vintage Fire King bowls made in the USA (one is 9.5 inches in diameter and 5 inches deep and the other bowl is 6.5 inches in diameter and 5 inches deep)
Note: These two bowls have value in and of themselves. Fire-King was originally produced in the 1940s for everyday use, rather than display. It was often sold in bags of flour as a promotional item or was given away at gas stations. Fire-King could also be purchased at local grocery and hardware stores. Several varieties of Fire King dishes were made; nesting bowls, dessert bowls, glass beverage containers, casserole dishes, mugs and more. The vintage nesting bowls, produced by the Anchor Hocking Company, are one of the most sought after collectible dishes of this type.
4. Electrical cord.
We don’t have the instruction booklet that came with this mixer about 48 years ago (mice food perhaps) but if you don’t know how to operate it, you have no business in the kitchen.
If you are thinking that $50 is steep, go to “Bonanza everything but the ordinary”. You can purchase one of these from them for $140.24. A new electic mixer of this quality would cost even more.
