60s green collection

60s green collectionGrizelle spice containers, made in Japan
Ideal placemats & napkins, made in Japan
Luminarc wine glasses, made in France

I am drawn to green- and especially 60s greens- and so collect them where I find them. This is a selection- a tableau if you will- of some recent finds.

The spice containers- Ginger and Allspice- are part of a set of five, and the cork lids are somewhat worse for wear. However that funky flower and font totally got me, and the containers could be upcycled to hold other kitchen stuffs.

The Ideal napkins, placemats and cheese knife are ‘as new’- never been out of their packaging. How Ideal. Team them with those funky wine glasses- Luminarc, from France. All 60s goodness!

The set is for sale: $AUD80

Gayware spice containers & tea dispenser [sold]

gayware spice & tea canistersGayware spice containers, and tea dispenser
made by Gay Plastics, Sydney, Australia 1950-1965

This collected set consists for five multi-coloured spice containers and a tea dispenser. The green ‘Nutmeg’ container has lost its ‘N’, but all the rest of the crew have their funky 50s fonts.

The dispenser is hung on the wall and the white protruding section at its base is pushed in to collect a precise teaspoonful of tea. It’s ingenious!

Both sets complement the nested Gayware kitchen canisters, in red, posted below. One could have a completely gay kitchen!
