I haven't forgotten you, it is just that I have been having fun and I haven't had any time to blog. I am back from my LONG vacation, and I have been busy making up for all the time I spent away from the thrifts! Some good finds for the store and a keeper for one of my collections. Let's see them!
A gorgeous set of Takahashi salt and pepper shakers. These are lacquered in gold and they are larger than other sets I've found. I would keep them if I already didn't have a salt/pepper mill collection. *Ahem*
I love finding Eva Zeisel's designs in the wild. These cups and saucers belong to Hallcraft's Tomorrow's Classic and are decorated with the Caprice motif. Lovely, aren't they?
This large fiberglass bowl is already listed in the shop. I love the colors on it. So MOD! Lightweight, dishwasher safe, stain free, and beautiful! Move over Cathrineholm...
My second etruscan horse! If my first one was extra-large, this one is tiny. Love it! It will be listed in the shop soon.
Now for this week's keeper (see a large resolution image of this print in another color HERE).
A color viscosity etching by Dick Swift. A SoCal native, Swift received his BA from Los Angeles State College and his MFA from Claremont College. He also studied printmaking at Chouinard, the Art Students' League in New York and Atelier 17 in Paris. In the 1960's Swift built the Printmaking program at CSULB, under his direction the program achieved national prominence. I got my MFA at CSULB with emphasis on printmaking, I never met Swift but I can clearly see his influence in the school. I am so happy to have found this print.
If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you have already seen this snapshot of my on-line finds. What is a picker to do if there are no thrift stores around? From left to right: Bitossi seating cat, George Briards' enamel plate (so similar to Kaj Franck's design for Finel), another mill for my collection, a Laurids Lonborg brush viking, a Wiinblad design LP cover (pardon the quality of the picture), and a Chelsea Pottery plate designed by Joyce Morgan.
Sharing this week with A Living Space, Remnant, Apron Thrift Girl and Sir Thrift a Lot.
