Hunted:: Gathered: 07/22/12

It's a mod mod world

I know that last week I said I would try to not thrift but I failed. I couldn't resist the temptation of stopping by one or two places while out running errands. I did restrain myself from buying a lot of things so that's a positive right?

I found this lovely set of glasses by Culver. They are from the Devon line and the gold detailing may actually be 22K gold! There is a set of 8 and they are in great condition. I am so tempted to keep these because they are a great size.They aren't too big nor too small and are super stylish.

This will be in the shop soon.

I actually found this El Palomar piece last week and I'm not quite sure what to call it. It's quite large. Is it a bowl? A planter?

This is a find from this week. I've seen these cool bubble mirrors around and I've always thought they were fun. I carried this around with me at the thrift but decided to leave it behind at the last minute. I started regretting it and when I got home I decided to do a bit of research on it. It has a Turner label on it and is from the 70's. Needless to say I went back the following day to get it and luckily it was still there! This one is about 18"X18". It's also a rare occasion for the boy to think one of my finds is cool and this one made the cut.

These are currently in the shop here, here and here.

No you're not seeing double. I found one of the small ones some time ago but the rest are from one thrift store last week. I hinted at them in last week's thrift post. My eyes nearly popped out of their sockets when I saw them on the shelf! While there is much debate about whether or not these are Jacob Bang pieces, I think they are. They are well made and do not have seaming. Later on in the week I went to another thrift with the boy. THAT is a rare occasion. As we were walking around he noticed one of these canisters and pointed it out to me. I said to him "Good eye!" and he replied, " I saw it from a mile away". So humble. It did make me chuckle though. Last night as we were watching a movie he noticed all of the MCM furniture and then commented in disbelief that I've rubbed off on him. Ha!

These will be in the shop soon!

Lastly, my favorite find of the week is this lovely vintage set of Dansk teak salad servers. They appear to be unused and still have the original bag, price and care instructions! They are marked Dansk Designs, Denmark JHQ meaning these were designed by Jens Quistgaard. I was hoping to find the salad bowl that goes with these because it's a looker but we can't have it all right?

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my finds. Have a great week and be safe!

I'll be linking up with Sophie and Selena.
