What Do Antique Dolls Have in Common with Catherine Holm?
Published on November 18, 2008 :: No Comments
And the answer is…(you guessed it) not much, beyond the fact that these two types of items are in my ebay-listing sights this week. I put some dolls up on tandemkids today, two especially that are about 100 years old and really lovely. I am not in any way a doll person – I don’t know a whole lot about them and I don’t feel a whole lot for them. But when I handle high quality ones like these (both made in Germany, by Florodora and Kestner) I can appreciate their details and their beauty. Here are a couple of pictures of today’s girls:
And then there is Catherine Holm. Are you familiar with it? Wonderful, colorful mid-century enamelled cookware and kitchenware from Denmark. We love mid-century, and no one did it like the Scandinavians! We have managed to put together quite a lot, along with a little complimentary Dansk. It is finally all washed and waiting to be photographed for ebay. It will be a tedious process to photograph each piece, but it was fun to pile it all up together for this group shot:
Next on my to-do list is deciding what new items to bring into our shop in Hudson on Friday. We have had a couple of good weekends there (despite the economic doom-and-gloomers) and we are looking forward to another. Those wonderful white glass vases from my last post will definitely go, as well as a fabulous big carved African planter looking thing and a gorgeous amber glass 1950s Mexican hanging light fixture. Will have some pictures for you here in the next couple of days.
