1950′s Vintage ORIGINAL ARTMARK Made in Japan CHIMNEY Lighter

via 1950′s Vintage ORIGINAL ARTMARK Made in Japan CHIMNEY Lighter.

 

Another great item from ORIGINAL ARTMARK MADE IN JAPAN lighter…not just any lighter but a chimney cigarette lighter. This is too adorable. As a non-smoker, I really admire the beauty as well as the artisan shape of this lighter. I haven’t tested the lighter. I assume it will work…it does move up and down as if lighting a cigarette. 

There is a small chip on the rim of the lighter. Defer to image 2. It appears the original owner attempted to glue the chipped part. It is attached. However, it definitely doesn’t detract from the craftsmanship.

Measurements:

5 1/4 inches in height

3 1/2 inches in width

Doesn’t fit into priority mail small box. Medium box for United States 11.95, everywhere else 47.95, and Canada 32.95.

via 1980s Extremely Unique Shape and Very Sharp Double Point Serrated Knife with Wooden Handle Made in Taiwan.

 

Very interesting vintage knife. The shape is quite unique and gives a lot of character to this vintage functional knife. Perhaps a great knife to take fishing. Can definitely pin a fish to the deck :). This vintage Stainless Steel knife will be a great addition to both fisherman as well as chef/cook. The wood is very smooth to the touch. There are no splinters. Perhaps some mineral oil can add some shine and protection to the wooden handle. 

Measurements:
A little over 6 1/4 inches in length
The blade is approximately 1/2 inch in width 

Great gift to yourself or to a love one.

Vintage 1960s True China RED WING USA hand painted 145 Single Guitar Saucer

Vintage 1960s True China RED WING USA hand painted 145 Single Guitar Saucer

via Vintage 1960s True China RED WING USA hand painted 145 Single Guitar Saucer.

 

Beautiful glazed saucer with a lot of American History. The corporation which manufactured/produced this lovely plate began to have difficulty in the 1950′s making plates as well as competing against Japan for comparable pricing and craftsmanship.Amazing, many of the issues some present American Corporations are experiencing. Is it cost effective to make in the USA or offshore? Same question which was prose to Red Wing. However, they never faltered and continued to offer jobs here in the USA. Due to some extenuating circumstances…the corporation closed in 1967 

The true china red wing was developed as a new line in the very early 1960′s which consist of china clay instead of pottery clay.

Defer to this link for more information about True China Red wing. I acquired my information from this wonderful website: http://www.schleichredwing.org/rwhistory.htm

The glaze on the plate is impeccable and have a great stoneware look to it…this collectible plate can be placed in an etagere, as shadow box art, or onto a wall.

Definitely would be a great addition to your collection.

Measurements:

The saucer is 6 inches all around.

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.


Aren’t those lovely lyrics from my Northern Neighbor, Canada…which is a very beautiful country. This vintage souvenir plate is representative of the beauty Canada has to offer. From provinces like Alberta to my french favorite of Quebec to one of my dearest collegiate friend home province, Ontario. The plate has the identifying image of each province arranged in a beautiful presentation. The gold along the edge only emphasizes the true beauty of this collectible souvenir plate. 

The plate is in mint condition. There aren’t any chips. I cannot ascertain the exact date for this colectible souvenir plate. I assessed it to be from the 1980′s due to the Japan backstamp. It could be earlier. The plate can be hung onto a wall as a wall plaque or wall art. 

Great gift for yourself or a collector of world countries.

The following is the write up in the Atlanta Journal Constitution Newspaper Legacy section about the deceased artist from her family: 

{ “Flo” as she was known during early childhood, was the proud daughter of James & Juanita Reed. She grew up in Harlem and attended New York public schools. Flora recently completed coursework for a Master of Education degree from Kennesaw State University of Georgia on July 28, 2010. Flora Hammond is a self-taught artist whose style has captured the hearts of Folk Art Lovers nationwide. Her works have been featured in many exhibits throughout the United States, as well as local and national publications, Ms. Hammond’s works, were highlighted as a montage during “Between the line” aired on Turner Broadcasting System. She has also worked on several mural projects in the City of Atlanta and her works in the private collections of several institutions in the Southeast. Her debut series entitled “The We Be Children Collector’s Series” depicts experiences from the artist’s childhood. “The children in this series are dear to me. They are extracts from my childhood memories. The time I spent with my big brother who, in my eyes, could capture rays of sun and carry the world in his wagon; girlfriends, with whom I was “tighter than tight”, and still am; the secrets that were told and never revealed. “These are my children… I am they…they are me.”}

Measurements:

9 1/4 inches all around
