Estate - Kaj Franck

Went to a MCM house owned by a Japanese-American who was one of President Nixons staffers. He had excellent taste and the house was neat as a pin. The couple that picked the last two mcm estates were just leaving with everything! There were very few people around as well maybe because of the summer months plus the sale was a drive from the city.

Did manage to find a few things left and the seller bargained too, a real treat! My first white Arabia planter by Richard Lindh dated 1970 SOLD (have 5 dark ones too) Pair a gunmetal trigger mugs by Bennington Potters of Vermont SOLD. Older smoked decanter by Kaj Franck for Nuutajarvi, Finland and 5 super thin smoke "Rhapsody"? glasses plus a shot by Orrefors, Sweden SOLD. And a little grey German Darda mechanical flocked mouse from 1984.

Couple of glass jars SOLD, blue Turkish pot SOLD, 4 teak trays (one left), 4 adorable animals mugs just found that the doggy has a repaired handle, sadness SOLD. An 80s rainbow joy mug.

Had to pass on this huge basket cause the leather straps were broken and dry rotted. A lovely mod floral dress for my sister, the colors are much brighter than the photo. The pink flower print was cute but not $65 cute. If anyone has any info on the signature let me know. And a large blue glazed planter (not pictured) for the front yard (the pickers got all the gorgeous huge incised planters) One the way home stopped by a yard sale and found myself a puzzle for $2.

At the bottom you see two unflattering photos of the house that I promise was very cool.
