A Little Something(s) I Picked Up This Past Week

Recommended Posts

Very cool Edna, thank you for the id. I really had know idea other than the tell tale Akro symbol on the bottoms. The cornicopia glows like a gem under black light. They have a sugar, creamer and a larger container of some sort at the store there too. I just didn't have the knowledge to know what to pay for them. The prices on these were actually quite low. I also found a set of pinkish colored dishes at a different place, but they couldn't find the key to the display case as the owner was out of town for the weekend. I am not even sure what they wanted for them or just what was behind the tea cups, although I could see they had more than a few pieces in there.

God Bless!

Yeah Felicia, I don't get out very often but when I do, I try to capitalize on the affair! hehe! I posted the pic of the little orange mib just because it looks so neat, but I have no idea what or who made it. I think it was a good haul, and cheap too, thank the good Lord! lol I am a novice but I think I have lots of different types, from Kokomo's to Pelts and Vacor to Alley, a couple German handmades and maybe even one or two Christiansens?

Another favorite that came in that box is a really neat light green with some translucent spots with a swipe or patch of yellow. It looks like another in the box but the other one is a deeper green and more translucent with a yellow patch. Maybe peerless? There are a few mibs that have some hits on them but most are excellent in condition with no visible damage at all! I was so stoked when my buddy called and went over some of the pictures I took, he is so cool and took time out of his day to help out a rookie.

I can't wait to head over there again and make my rounds. Hopefully this time they will have found the key to the box with the pink dishes in it. *It also had some straight razor boxes in the case but I have no idea if they were full or not :( Since I also collect pocket knives and straight razors that place is on the top of my list for next time. God Bless


Here is a cool one too, no damage that I can see, maybe a Master? You can also see the light green mib with the yellow patch just above my hand in the box, straight down from the large *Vacor?* Frit mib. The marble bag was a bonus. The bottom is leather and the top is cloth although a bit worn. You can clearly read the markings on the leather part of the bag. It was a give away from the Cadillac Bank here in Michigan! :) And no, I didn't buy it in Cadillac. That bank probably doesn't exist anymore but I am going to do some checking on it and see what I can find out. The same place that had this bag had a straight razor from Buhl and Sons in Detriot with a matching box. Both items from my home state just makes it that much sweeter! :) lol God Bless!
