Occasionally, I hit a little pocket of vintage in the midst of suburbia and this particular Saturday I got lucky enough to do it again, and in spectacular fashion!
When I hopped out of the car, this was the first thing I saw on the table and I about started to hyperventilate:
According to my glassware identification book, Anchor Hocking made Fire-King Turquoise Blue dinnerware from 1957 to 1958. There were two types of mixing bowls that went with the dishes--a Splash Proof set (the same shape used in the popular dot and tulip sets) and this unusual teardrop-shaped set, which is also known as Swedish Modern. Originally there were four bowls to this set: 1 pint, 1 quart, 2 quart and 3 quart. I believe I am missing the 1 quart bowl, and the 2 quart is pretty severely chipped on the spout and the back. The other two bowls are in great shape and for that price, I don't even care that it's not perfect!
On the same table as the bowls was this cute set of vintage glasses and caddy. Price? Also $1. The glasses have a somewhat random rural theme of images of chickens, trees, brick schoolhouses(?) and windmills. There are four of this set and I'll try to find another set of glasses to fill the other four spots in the caddy. Additionally there are two glasses on which the gold printing is nearly gone. I think maybe I can get rid of it completely with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, leaving two solid-colored glasses.
