New vintage finds

A week and a half since my last post... Not good. Sorry, folks! Hopefully I will be a bit more active posting as my work schedule is significantly reduced at the moment.

Fleamarket high season has just been, and I purchased these bits (and then some):

Arabia or Finel coffee pot (not stamped). I've been looking for this for a looong time...


Small ceramic dishes (ashtrays, probably) by Norwegian ceramist Konrad Galaaen
for Porsgrund.

I've featured this ashtray/dish before, but now it has a big and wonderful vase to accompany it. Both by Norwegian ceramist Finn Hald.

Now, this hanging disc decoration is signed, but I can't make out the name. I'm not sure I love it, but I think it might grow on me...

The red Finel´s coffee pan is decorated by Esteri Tomula. You can Google her, she´s "touch" is really nice.

Janne,
Ble nostalgisk av de askebegrene. Legger merke til at du og mamma har lik smak. Mye av det du samler på, vokste jeg opp med uten egentlig å sette pris på det. Frykter at Kine har kvittet seg med mye :(

Ellen (sorry - Anonymous): Ja, de røde keramikkflisene, for eksempel...
