Estate & Thrift: Solaris Platter & Trifari Chocker

Iittala "Solaris" Platter
Dansk Teak Server & "Marimekko" Placemats
All found at a new thrift store next to my doctors office. Red "i" sticker still on "Solaris" platter designed by Tapio Wirkkala in 1974 for Iittala of Finland. Prod: 1975-1995. Dansk Teak Server, 1970-80's, made in Thailand. Proof that Marimekko makes ugly things but I felt a duty to rescue. Lordy, she's roll over in her grave if she saw this design! "Marimekko" of Finland, four plastic "Socks" Christmas place mats. Circa past 10 years.

After the appointment, I stopped by two estate sales and found 1970's wide red leather & suede belt. Late 70-80's Purple suede and gold belt, 1940-60 mirrored Krementz jewellery box. Post war, perfect condition pearl collar. Label "Handmade. A 'Top Hit' Fashion. Barr & Beards, Inc. Japan," 1960's Trifari chocker in excellent condition, it's huge & heavy. Aqua stones & plastic flowers pin with open back. Back looks modern. Only mark is a Texas Star in a circle. Brillants "Burst" pin (no mark), my fave a horse stick pin with no marks. Scotty dog "Swank" tie clip. 60-70's and black fabric gloves with cuff detail. "Shalimar-the finest fabric gloves, 6.5." Made in USA, 1940-60's, all for my sister.
