My finds this week veered towards the modern...
Loving this folding brass candle holder! I've seen them before on Etsy and always coveted them. Now that I have one, I'll probably sell it. Because that's how I roll. But in the meantime, isn't she pretty?
I've been finding lots of Kosta Boda snowball candle holders lately. Each of these came from a different place, but all were under $2. The one on the right is a bit different - smoother and more clear; more like crystal, and minus the seam marks on the others. Maybe an earlier production, or a knock-off? (Did anyone knock off Kosta snowballs?)
I'm not sure the photos quite do this lamp justice...the pottery base is the most beautiful blend of blues and greens. My favorite part, though, is the elegant teak neck. This was a garage sale find for a few dollars, though I spent significantly more having it rewired!
These two chic vases are marked "Norsk Tinn Pewter" on the bottoms. The stripes look like tree bark. Can't you see these adorning a bookshelf?
I've actually been hoarding this two-headed desk lamp for a while, but I finally got it out this weekend to contemplate listing it. I got it at a thrift store a couple of months ago for a few dollars, and I think it's so cool. It works, but it definitely needs a spit shine (or, more specifically, a rendez-vous with a bottle of Brasso) before I list it in the shop. Because I WILL list it in the shop. Really. I swear.
I was so excited to find all six of these glasses together in one Goodwill store - instead of having to track them down, piecemeal, all over the city. I haven't been able to figure out the pattern/maker. At first I thought they were Ultima Thule by iittala, but after examining them closely I'm pretty sure they're not. I've held Ultima Thule before, and these just feel different. Plus I don't think iittala made this shape in that pattern. Anyone have any ideas what they are?
And last but not least...
Not one, but TWO Cathrineholm saucepans! This find was a minor miracle, as I NEVER find cathrineholm in the midwest. I know lots of west coast bloggers who seem to find it periodically, but it seems to be such a rarity here. These are the first pieces I've ever seen "in the wild" (aka in a thrift). They're not perfect...the insides have some discoloration that I'm working on removing, and they tragically are missing their lids, but still...they were (brace yourselves) $2 each at GW. Yep. You can see why they quickly came home with me!
