As you all know I've been recovering from my dental surgery this past week and a half, so I've had plenty of time (although little inclination!) to do some online browsing.
Here are a few lovelies I've had my eyes on this week.
a girl can never have too many pairs of vintage sunnies, and I definitely need more!
50s snack tray which is also a lazy susan
50s/60s chest of drawers, more often we see the sideboards and wall units, less so the bedroom furniture in this style
Yellow, grey and pink were huge in 50s kitchens, and this ceramic biscuit barrell must have been right on-trend
As were the ever-popular Nally Ware canisters
But if you're more for the 60s, how could you go past this super psychedelic tray? 'Specially if you knew it's made from fabric-covered fibreglass
Anyone who admires Vix's wall of misery will love these big-eyed child prints, I have 2 similar but am always on the lookout for more.
For those who know that green is a neutral colour (come on, hands up now!), how's this bakelite bracelet? It's been made recently from vintage pieces but if you didn't know you wouldn't know...if you know what I mean.
Aah, beautiful bakelite, what more can I say, you know what I'm like with this stuff, this has to be one of the nicest trinket boxes I've yet seen.
I've wanted one of these bakelite musical cigarette dispensers for ages-one day I'll get one. Twist one of the knobs on the front and out pops a drawer with cigs inside-awesome!
Original old garden swan (?), looking pretty crusty and rustic but it could be fixed up, nice to see an original one amongst all the plastic repro.
German lava vase, such a classic collectable, this one stands out amongst the orange crowd for me with the stripey effect.
Anodised cup set in it's own small table, a must for any serious retro collector.
60s carousel wig box, you can't tell from the pic but this one had 2 original wigs inside, how cool is that!
And last but not least, this 50s Italian cup and kidney-shaped saucer set. I'm quite tempted by this myself as it would fit well with my black stuff...but no, I'll let you all have a go :)
