Any serious vintage thrift store thrifter that looks through kitsch has undoubtedly seen their share of mid century plastic decorative wall plaques!!! In one of my previous posts I showed a set that I purchased for my husband (and then painted them). I have finally found a pair just perfect for my laundry room and I am so excited! They are made by Syroco dated 1968. The laundry room color scheme is yellow/orange/green and I really wanted something in the orange family and I found it! Here they are in my 1950s ranch laundry room. Oh and, if you haven't seen my previous post on my West Bend bean pots--they have turned out to be the best containers for my oxygen bleach and baking soda!
My other finds include a Harmony House plate marked 4512 Wheat H.H. Parchment Beige. This picture doesn't do it justice--it is very warm tan color on cream. I have to go read about the process of manufacture of this pottery. I have a plate with an ivy leaf pattern by Harkerware in a robin's egg blue and beige that is made the same way. It appears as if the color glaze is applied omitting glaze where the pattern is leaving a relief on the surface. Really cool! My other nifty item of the day is a wood planter that appears homemade--love the tapered legs! It was a whole $2.70!
