50s anodised aluminium

50s anodised aluminium beakersAnodised beakers
made in Hong Kong, c.1950s

I found another set of anodised aluminium cups- they are unused and were still wrapped individually in 1950s tissue paper! This set from Hong Kong hasn’t a maker’s mark, just the place of origin…but they do come with a handy bottle-opener concealed in the vinyl case lid. Perfect for the retro picnic!

Aren’t those 50s colours adorable? This is a harlequin set- so called because there’s one of each colour. Anodised aluminium beakers are highly collectible- and I have sold a few sets. So many people have fond memories of the picnics of yesteryear. Perhaps it’s because picnics are such fun as children? No admonitions to get your elbows off the table, or not to speak with your mouth full.

All the beakers are in good condition, ~ still shiny and having no dings ~ I suspect they have never been near a picnic.     For sale: $AUD75
