Home, sweet home.

Every now and then we get an update from one of our customers about the piece they’ve purchased. Such is the case with this atomic-fabulous Mirro Medallion candy bowl. Mirro is well known for its vintage aluminum homewares, but the Medallion line was very short lived (1958-1960). Touted as high-end serving ware, it was largely cost prohibitive for most customers, with pieces ranging $8-$22 (think 1950’s dollars!) Due to this short production span, these amazing pieces are highly sought after, and very collectible. 

Absolutely appropriate that this sweet bowl ended up in a classic Mid Century Eichler designed home – and how incredible are those wood paneled walls?! Modernist architecture at its absolute finest. Swoon!

Holy Toledo!

How fun is the bright orange retro-ness of this design? Absolutely love this platter in the “Toledo” pattern. And boy, has it had a journey through time and across the globe.

JAJ (now Crown) is England’s version of Pyrex and is hard to find anywhere outside of the Commonwealth. This little 1960’s gem was Made in England, snapped up in Australia and ended up in America. Kinda reminds us of another little orange traveler…42 Wallaby Way, Sydney anyone?

Both practical and collectible, this vintage platter is a gem.
