Hi Chrissy---Thanks to the vintage ad to the right for Anchor Hocking a.k.a. Anchorglass, this is the name of the glass pattern and the year it was produced: 1954! How fortunate you are to have inherited a complete set for 12! The pattern will look fantastic on your Christmas table this year.
Next up, by special request, an oldie but goodie--a fab 1946 ad for your very own Frank Sinatra bracelet...That's followed by a special request for a certain "pagoda house"--and one of the best we have ever seen is modeled after an oldie but goodie and comes from JCASS. And finally a vintage Dennison gift wrap display from the National Christmas Center, soon to re-open in another Pennsylvania location. Your editor hopes to replicate this Dennison display in 2019! Again, click on the photos and enjoy.
p.p.s. You can find the pattern for the JCASS pagoda house at https://bit.ly/2W40CpX
Moving along....An oldie but goodie worth revisiting and so much putzing inspiration for our reader thinking about crafting her own "vintage-inspired" circus---the Marx Super Circus...A while back, Toys & Stuff started a new mini-series based on one of the best playsets ever produced by Marx - Super Circus. Based on a popular television show of the 1950s this playset was BIG. It had action, it had gorgeous tin-litho pieces, and it had charm aplenty. Part 1 of the series, Aug 20, 2012 (Super Circus Pt 1), featured photos of the Big Top Tent.
Then in August 2012--more (Super Circus Pt 2) Click on the link to see additional stuff! Simply fantastic: http://bit.ly/1RGt7Wu
