I tried! I did not go to the fabulous Mid Century estate sale in Long Beach and I did not stop at my usual thrift stores, yet I managed to find some fabulous items. Let's take a look.
Lot of iittala Solaris dishes. 4 dinner plates, 3 bread plates, and 5 fruit bowls. Lovely pattern designed by Tapio Wirkkala. Soon to be listed in the store.
Fabulous brutalist pendant found the same day as the birds. I hardly ever look at jewelry, but I love to wear it and appreciate a good design. I am delighted with my first jewelry pick. I might keep it for a while.
It was an iittala week! I found this beautiful and large Paddar bowl at the Salvation Army. This is another Wirkkala design. This picture doesn't do it justice as the bowl has a great pebble like pattern on the bottom. Just gorgeous.
What do you know? I had never found any of Lisa Larson's work before last week's turtle find, and that same day while researching a ceramic vase made in Denmark, my second Lisa Larson happened to show up in my search results. It was NOT identified as a LL figurine, so I bid with confidence and got my sweet Victoria for a good price. Isn't she lovely? She is part of the Sekelskifte (Turn of the century) series designed in 1973. At 8" tall, I believe she is the largest version produced.
I recently read on Esoteric Survey that this phenomenon of finding things after being aware of them is known as "contact magic." I will like to believe this is true.
What did you find this week? Any magic in your finds? Sharing with A Living Space, Remnant, Sir Thrift a Lot and Young Heart.
