I realized I hadn't done a 'Finds" post in awhile. So here you go.
Ran out this morning to get some groceries and of course mapped out a few yard sales before I left.
Managed to score a bit of vintage...and at great prices!
The picture above shows a Portland, OR bottle crate, some crystal and silver S&P shakers, a 1965 Syroco mirror, an unsigned sweater guard (my first!!), Tragedy/Comedy clip earrings, a large Deco style botle with cork, vintage Mother/Father mugs and some divided stainless serving trays. Here's a better picture:
They are by Lundtofte Denmark. So Danish Modern. Love it. Most of these I see are from Japan..so it was cool to find a couple Danish ones. If I see something vintage and from Denmark..I always pick it up. More about that later.
Also in the top picture is an AMAZING gooseneck lamp. It has a cast iron base which is very Art Deco. Check it out.
See the little grooves for pencils? And for paper clips? Cool beans. Someone painted it red along the way..but I think that just makes it cool-er!!
Last night we went to Goodwill and I found these 2 items. The shoes are Made In Italy. I always double check Italian shoes on the Internet from my phone. These are Thierry Rabotin. Nice. Some of their shoes new are over $300. While I won't get anything near that on Ebay, it'll still be a sweet flip.
I also found this bowl. Looks like nothing much. But I saw 'Denmark". Remember my rule? I bought it without checking. And I'm glad I did. It's a Krenit Denmark bowl from the 1950s with a red enamel interior. The designer was Herbert Krenchel if I'm not mistaken. Look at what this huge lot went for at an auction earlier this year.
What about you? Have you found anything that gets your pulse racing lately?
