Gorgeous Blue Ombre Stoneware Pottery Set

8 Mar

This vintage tea set is such a stunning find! Initially, we were drawn to the absolutely gorgeous hues of blue – definitely an eye-catcher. But to touch, hold, and feel the true weight and beauty of this handmade stoneware pottery in all its glory really takes it to the next level! Such a fabulous, unique collection. One of our all-time shop favorites, for sure!

Stoneware Pottery Tea Set, Signed Raquel Pérez, Venezuela

Gorgeous shades of periwinkle and pastel blues accent this natural stoneware vintage pottery with a brilliant ombre effect. Natural, charming, and perfect for cottage chic kitchen styling!

This listing includes a large tea set signed by studio pottery artist Raquel Pérez of Taller Artesanal, Venezuela. All pieces are included as shown: six teacups, a creamer pitcher, a lidded sugar bowl, and the perfectly-sized serving tray to complete the collection.

Excellent vintage condition. No chips, cracks, or structural damage found. Extremely light shelf wear is apparent on the bottom of the tray; otherwise, there are no signs of past use or wear.

Each piece in this lovely collection is stamped on the bottom by “Taller Artesanal” pottery studio.

The creamer pitcher bears an original hang tag, secured with soft rope, stamped with “Raquel Pérez, hecho a mano (handmade), Venezuela” as well.

This unique serving ware was crafted for utilitarian use and offered for sale at local markets. The overall beauty and charm made them exquisite tourist souvenirs and gifts, which is likely how this brilliant find made its way back to the USA, circa 1970’s.

Old Hollywood Cinema Tripod by Craig Thalhammer

1 Mar

The never-ending search for vintage treasures leads us to some incredible finds! We were excited when we stumbled on this interesting antique – a real treat for home decorators, upcyclers, collectors, and movie buffs alike!

Craig Thalhammer Cinema Tripod by Craig Movie Supply Co. 

Lights, camera, action! Add a hint of Old Hollywood to your home or upcycle projects with this authentic antique Craig Thalhammer cinema tripod by Craig Movie Supply Company of Los Angeles, California.

This unit is complete with all original parts and equipment, including “rigidized” two-section legs of hardwood and chromium-plated steel, Craig’s “Sure Foot” points that pivot from rubber tread to spur for a steady grip on any surface, and patented Kino Pano tilt head (model T-98) with secure camera-mounting point.

The tilt head offers a full 360 degree pan and 125 degree tilt, with numbered dial on the base. Handle extends out with an easy-grip black hard-plastic bulb tip.

This tripod is in good used vintage condition. As far as we can tell, this unit is totally complete with all parts in good working order. All knobs and adjusters turn smoothly and are functional. Legs extend and retract fully, without hesitation.

The tilt head itself secures perfectly to the tripod, with only a tiny bit of loose “wiggle” which should not affect its functionality whatsoever. The legs swing open and closed very loosely, very easily.

There is wear overall, showing great character of age, including scuffs, scratches, and surface blemishes to all wood areas. Plenty of gorgeous patina and surface wear apparent to all metal components, too – heaviest in the foot areas.

An iconic piece of history by one of the most well-known names in movie supplies – an interesting accent for any home space and a unique gift idea for the movie buff in your life!

Juicy

1 Jul

Treasury time! I’m loving these funky retro shades. Limes and avocados, orange with a hint of coral… super retro funky! That’s why our vintage cage candle holder fits in perfectly! The handcrafted drip glaze is superb – just like all these amazing Etsy finds!
