Totally green 70s

Totally green 70s!Harrods glass plate, made in London c1970s
Anchor Hocking ‘Aztec’ design bowl, made in USA c1970s
Green ceramic cat figurine, made in Japan c1970s

All from the 70s and all a lovely green colour….yet all from different countries of origin. I have used the ‘Helvetica Medium’ reprographics board behind to provide a context for the pieces.

A few of my last posts have used this ‘reprographic’ device. I love graphics, and when I found a whole stack of old font boards from a reprographics place going out of business, I snapped them up. The font boards are various coloured perspex backgrounds with a variety of coloured fonts – here we have black and white, Helvetica Medium. Because they are perspex, the boards would make fantastic light boxes or light displays.

That is my intention, should I find the time/where-with-all to do so. My collection is bourgeoning with so many ideas, projects and could-possibilities. But the could-possibilities are what keep me working at the day job- their time will come [and by god what antiques will they be by then?]

In the meantime, this collection is for sale; $AUD95 – the dish, the bowl, the cat.
