Preserving The Integrity Of An Old Glass Preserves Bottle

Preserving The Integrity Of An Old Glass Preserves Bottle | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

I knew that whatever was in this old glass jar was not a “good thing,” but somehow the metallic silver tone still sparkled and beckoned from behind the decorative molded glass. Look how the caramel-colored whatever-it-is seemed to flow along the inside of the smooth art deco lines! And who doesn’t love the dear Old Manse paper label on the front?! So I snapped it up.


But, oh, the work!

Meet Me Down by Schuster’s (Vintage Department Store Memories & Collectibles) | Inherited Values | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Like many people, my first jobs were in retail. It was work I actually loved; but retail doesn’t pay enough to support a family, so I left it & got a college degree. Years later, I still consider myself to be a “retail brat” — and so I collect vintage retail store items. Like most collectors, I tend to focus on the names that mean something to me. For me, these are the department stores of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Antique Campbell’s Soup advertisng tin sign expected to reach $40,000-$60,000

Antique Campbell’s Soup advertisng tin sign expected to reach $40,000-$60,000 | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

The lifetime collection of Don and Diane Sayrizi – advanced collectors in many categories, but especially antique advertising – plus consignments from over 100 other advanced collectors from all over the country will be offered Oct. 4-6 by Showtime Auction Services, at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds in Ann Arbor, located at 5055 Ann Arbor/Saline Road.


“By far this is the best collection of antique advertising we have ever had the privilege of selling,” said Mike Eckles of Showtime Auction Services, based in Woodhaven, Mich. “We’ve held big auctions in the past, many of which featured advertising items, but never like this. The antique signs, in particular, are highly desirable and would be fine additions to any collection.”

Fashioning standards for industry conduct (Art & Antiques)

Fashioning standards for industry conduct (Art & Antiques) | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Doctors have the American Medical Association; lawyers are represented by the American Bar Association, car dealers, teachers, religions, and even countries have organized representation to promote their best interests to the public and government. Art and antiques dealers, one can categorically say, do not have any form of an umbrella organization that can advocate for its interests.

The many organizations that do attempt to be representatives of the industry are narrow in focus and small in membership. Whether it is the Art and Antiques Dealer’s League of America (AADLA), Antiques Dealers’ Association of American (ADA), National Antiques & Art Dealers Association of American (NAADAA), or the various state and local associations, they all have limited membership, finances, and interests. Individually they are just groups that attempt to create their own exclusivity of membership and can’t look at industry issues, be it a simple standard form of invoice or other business documents that have dealer and customer interests in mind; how about the larger purpose of the public’s image of dealers?

Treasure Hunting for Michigan-themed Antiques

Treasure Hunting for Michigan-themed Antiques | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Despite repeated requests from family and friends to join in the adventure, it’s something I (selfishly) prefer to do solo. I like going at my own pace, without worrying about a guest who is bored 10 minutes into the day, and getting lost in the nostalgia of it all.

 

While I rarely have something specific I’m looking for, I always seem to find “just the right thing” to add to my collection. Items featuring Michigan receive top attention of course – especially travel brochures and magazines, food and agriculture focused pieces, unique license plates and slightly-rusted signs. I’m also drawn to cottage- and beach-themed décor, garden art and things that are red (the primary accent color in my home).

 

This past April, a couple treasures found their way into my heart (and ultimately into my bag). A wooden dachshund with “Frankenmuth Beer” in faded paint was a steal at just $5 (even with its chipped tail – which to me, adds to its character). I also scored 5 juice-size glasses adorned with red roosters – perfect for sampling my favorite made-in-Michigan spirits – for $7.

Antiques as Souvenirs

Antiques as Souvenirs | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Tourists have collected travel kitsch since the Crusaders plundered their way through the Holy Land.  Postcards, pennants, shot glasses, spoons, as well as,  a plethora of other items have topped the list of must haves from exotic and pastoral locales. These items are readily available at estate sales as they lose their meaning once their purchaser has passed. I have a different take on souvenir purchases; I try to find an antique or vintage piece that I can use and enjoy in my home decor.

Pin Ups | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

[F]rom the 1920s to the 1970s, certain artists—including Alberto Vargas, George Petty, Gil Elvgren, Earl Moran, and Zoë Mozert—made their careers painting “pin-up” girls exclusively. This Golden Age of the pin-up art lasted until color photography took its place.

DIY Tea Tin Herbs

DIY Tea Tin Herbs | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

I love cooking for family and friends, and as all the pros will tell you, food always tastes more flavourful when it's made with fresh herbs. This quick, kid-friendly project lets you get a head start growing an herb garden before summer comes and will afford the luxury of fresh ingredients year-round. And after a long winter, I'm starved for spring greenery, and these pretty tea tins, brimming with plant life, add welcome colour to a windowsill or kitchen shelf.

Deanna Dahlsad's curator insight, March 6, 2013 8:56 AM

A great idea of recycling tins; even vintage rusted ones (in condidtions too bad to be desireable collectibles) can be used to add good taste and charm to your home.

Bek Atkins's curator insight, March 7, 2013 6:52 AM

This is an easy project that students of all abilities can achieve. This activity would develop skills in line with statements in the Australian National Curriculum: science - biological science for years F- 2. [(ACSSU002), (ACSSU017), (ACSSU211) and (ACSSU030).] These statements call for students to observe the biological processes of a variety of different organisms. The positive point for using plants is that if they are roughly treated or neglected the consequences are less traumatic then if it was a guinea pig. 

 

This activity would also translate to Home Economics where students could use their herbs to create nutritional meals. Special needs students (and in fact all young children) can be very picky about their food, especially if it is green! By growing, nurturing and then using their own produce, students have ownership and this may make students more likely to try and like the foods. 

 

Through the teaching of Home Economics skills students can begin to acquire the necessary life skills to become independent.

Vintage Brown Stoneware Bowls

Vintage Brown Stoneware Bowls | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Perhaps even more exciting for collectors is the fact that while these bowls are not marked “Red Wing”, they were in fact made by Minnesota’s own Red Wing Stoneware Company. (Red Wing collectors will note that these bowls are specifically mentioned in collectors’ guides.) As such, they are very fine examples of pottery and the rich brown yet imperfect glaze with exposed stoneware on the thick shoulders of the rims makes them quite popular with today’s trend in primitive or rustic country home decor looks.

Collecting Print Blocks

Collecting Print Blocks | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

The use of printing blocks in newspapers and other printed advertising resulted in vast quantities of these blocks being produced. Examples of the same logo were often replicated in several sizes depending on the usage. Larger sizes for newspaper or magazine ads, with full, half or quarter page ads requiring different size print blocks. Even smaller versions were needed for letterheads, business cards or company envelopes.  These are now a relic of the very recent past, and quite collectible.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Recognize any of the old logos -- even backwards? ;)
