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.
