A mixed bag of oranges and lemons: a hand painted lemon tray, glass jug and small ceramic plate- but all hailing from Japan and made in the 60s.
This collection is by theme rather than media- with the colours and abstract representations of fruit being the uniting factors. This set would be fabulous for a [teetotaller’s] retro bar. Or a complete lush’s retro bar…sometimes you do have to use fruit in a cocktail [or so I am lead to believe.]
Skyline kitchen utensils
made in England c.1930-1940s
These kitchen utensils are all timber handled [with the exception of the chip cutter in the middle.] Skyline utensils were imported to Australia post war, with the selling point that the handles were colour-coded to describe their function. From L to R : knife sharpener, potato masher, crinkle-cut chip cutter, pizza cutter, egg whisk, pastry blender.
The utensils are still going strong, the stainless steel blades and whisks equal to modern utensils- and so could be used in today’s kitchens. They are also highly collectible. Some of the timber handles show a little wear – these babies have had a life in a busy kitchen.
