More Great vintage Knitting! Stangl Pottery and a peek at "Parents Magazine" 1961

Columbia – Minerva Hand Knits for Men Pattern Book Vintage 50’sOPEN LINK!

I think this full color collection of wonderful Men’s Sweaters and other hand knits was previously owned by someone who didn’t knit much, as the copy is in very good condition! Each colorful page of handsome men is clean and easy to read. Some minor fraying to the corners and slightly on the edge is all I see with the exception of 4 pages that have pulled (maybe intentionally) away from the stapled binding, but all in very nice condition. If you are wanting to create a retro sweater for him for the holidays, this would be the book to get! 56 9 x 12” pages and a back page that has Gauge, Abbreviatios, Washing & Drying Instructions, and some stitch instructions. This is a collection of “bright new looks for men” and a “complete collection of Classics”!Fashion: Martha Ann HoffmanPhotography: Myron Mill – Conant Studios

Stangl Pottery Grecian-Style Ashtray or
Candy Dish-Antique Gold open link!
No you are not looking at a flying saucer! This “Atomic Age” 50’s era pale turquoise with brushed gold antique ashtray or candy dish is a beautiful piece, with only 1 small chip on the underside of the rim (seen in the picture). The top is in mint condition! It has a wonderful matte finish that glows somehow. The feel of it is very smooth and tactile.The gold brush work shows off the embossed design in the ceramic. The inner ring visible in the photo has what appears to be cigarette braces, and I was convinced at first glance that this was an ashtray. But then after studying it further I realized it could very well be a serving dish for candy or nuts or mints, etc. In fact since the center well is shallow it would make a wonderful floating dish for short stemmed flowers such as Gardenias or Camilla’s! The bottom mark is the Stangl Logo Trenton NJ, 3972, Pat No 3,060,610. One of the bottom green felt circles has fallen off, which is easily replaceable. It measures 10” in diameter.

Parents’ Magazine September 1961 open link!

Very good condition! Just minor wear. Some color photos other on vintage standard newsprint. While some corners are bent or dog eared a bit, all pages are intact & in firm binding and no markings. Articles include: The American Revolution in Teaching Beginners; Do Interfaith Marriages Work?; First Twelve Months…Life’s Fastest Growing Year; The Trouble With Early Dating; All Children are Born Talented.The ads are wonderfully representative of the time!

Holloween and Trickery! Have a fun one!

Stay tuned for my Christmas/Holiday Catalog post!
