|Doctor's Office Thrift & New GoodWill Finds|
|Dansk Peppermill by Jens Quistgaard|
Went into the thrift store next to the doctors & instantly saw a rare first issue Dansk peppermill. Wasn't positive because there is no Dansk mark (I was worried that it didn't work but Mom solved that when she discovered it was overfilled with peppercorns.) I have a feeling it was donated & marked cheap because it didn't grind. It just sold on Ebay for $325! It's made with an all metal early Peugeot Freres mechanism. Designed by Jens Quistgaard. Prod. 1960-62. Made in Denmark. In 1962 cost $11 in today's money that's $77. SOLD
Also, picked up a pair of gold & white ash trays from the 1960's. Foil label "OMC Japan" Red lotus bowl made in Japan.
At the new GoodWill found "Miffy" childrens plate & bowl. Illustrated by Dick Bruna. 1953-97. From Holland. Made by Mepal-Rosti. Plate still has Euro price tag 9,95. "Girl with Sunflower" glass.
1960's Dansk teak board, stamped "Made in Denmark." SOLD
"Wizard of Oz" book, I have a few of these. Last week, I passed up a "The Yellow Knight of Oz" 1930 first copy with color plates for $6 (which I remember color plates being somewhat rare?) It had water stains and the cover was damaged but, I think, I made a mistake passing it up.
|Altenkunstadt Porcelein of Germany|
|Bergdala Glass Troll|
Four stunning green stem glasses & four matching cordials. They still retain the 1950's "Made in Sweden" paper labels. Tiny Bergdala glass troll. Made in Sweden. Looks like an Afgan hound to me. (Funny thing is, I saw two ceramic ones in separate shops earlier in the week & a large glass one with a chip in another shop the next day.)
Plus, a strawberry jam pot by Waechtersbach of West Germany. Pre 1990. SOLD
