Thrift - Makio Hasuike for Gedy

Nothing from the old Biddy shop, passed on a glass plate that I thought was ugly. At my fave thrift, a blue cat Taylor & Ng mug with a chip though I was tempted to keep it for myself, passed.  Gone the next time I went.

Really like the Gedy, Italy ABS plastic bin from the early 70's by Japanese designer Makio Hasuike. Had found a larger one in white a while ago but the thrift had managed to crush it. Passed on this Ernest Sohn chafing dish/fondue several times until I realized the heating element was in the pot.


  1. Ahem, as for the "ugly" plate...


    1. Thanks for the info! Figured it was something from the weight and design complexity but didn't want to gamble $5. If it had been anything but brown I would have picked it. Now I know for next time!
