Estate Score! Arne Jacobsen Cylinda Fondue
On the way to the Post Office I happened to pass an estate sale with the worlds small signs. But boy, was it it worth it! Saw this baby from across the room! It's Arne Jacobsen's stainless steel 1964-67 "Cylinda Line" fondue pot for Stelton Denmark.
Originally designed in 1952 by world-renowned designer Eva Zeisel, is the "Classic Century" teapot this is a current version marked Crate & Barrel, made in England. SOLD A small matte white "Van Briggle" of Colorado Springs pot I picked up super cheap! Guess, it pays to watch "Antiques Roadshow" on occasion. SOLD
A silk scarf made in Italy for the sister. And the Richard Scarry book for myself. I hope to one day find some of his Big Books because they were a favorite as a child.
