Vintage Fascination No. 97

Welcome to this week’s edition of Vintage Fascination.  It is a little cooler here in Georgia but I know the cool weather isn’t going to last.  We usually have relativity hot weather on into September.

VF No. 97 title

I made it to a few sales this week and here’s what I found.

Alum Colander Bowl

Love this vintage aluminum colander or strainer with a star pattern that I found last week.  I’ve sold several star colanders in my booth but they all had legs but this one just has little feet  thus  it is more like a bowl.   It has that great farmhouse look so it’s a keeper.

Fire King Relish DIsh

I have a few pieces of Fire King dishes including this relish dish.  It is a beautiful white milk glass dish trimmed in gold.  The gold edge has a raised dot border.   It is from the 1950’s and in good condition.  Since I already have one like it this one is on the way to the booth.

E. Ingraham Skyline Alarm Clock

You know I have a clock collection but I haven’t added to it lately.  Well that all changed last week when I found this vintage Art Deco styled alarm clock.  It is a Skyline alarm clock made by the  E. Ingraham Company of Bristol Connecticut, USA.   The E. Ingraham Company formed in 1860 remained in business until 1967 when purchased by McGraw Edison  Their clock and watch-making production ceased during World War II.  Pendulum clock production did not resume after the war and their major product line became electric  clocks, watches, alarm clocks, fuses, and timers.  This clock is probably from the 1940’s.

Fire King Peach Luster Casserole

I almost missed a Fire King Peach Luster casserole at the thrift store last week.  It was not with the house wares but on a shelf with light fixtures.  It is a one quart casserole.  It has a few scratches but it is booth bound.

Tobacco Tins

Tins are a special interest of mine and I couldn’t pass up these three tobacco tins.  The tins are Velvet Pipe and Cigarette Tobacco – America’s Smoothest Smoke – Burns Cool and Sweet in Pipe or Cigarette; Half and Half – Burley and Bright – A Cargo of Contentment in the Bowl of a Pipe; and Prince Albert – Crimp Cut – Long Burning Pipe and Cigarette Tobacco.  Keepers!

Dresser Tray

Another mirrored dresser tray was one of my finds this week.  I styled it with a milk glass vase and perfume bottle found a few years ago at a thrift store before I started blogging.  It is in desperate need of a makeover like my daughter gave the last one I found here.   She painted it a lovely coral but this one is getting a chalk spray paint makeover.  Since I already have a dresser tray this one is off to the booth after it gets a makeover.
