VTT: Assorted Barware

First of all, I want to thank everyone who visit my blog and if you leave a comment it's an added bonus! I really appreciate your input,your humour, your opinions.

I had a not so nice morning and I need to re-focus and think nice thoughts....Kittens with bows....Bacon....Sunshine....Pyrex....Aaaahhh the Pyrex did the trick! LOL

So after your visit please stop by Suzanne's blog HERE  for your thrusday dose of vintage!

Today I offer you pieces from Dan's barware collection. Dan doesn't drink so it feels funny that if I look around I see shot glasses and cocktail shakers...Oh well! You don't choose your addictions....Did I mention that Dan is afflicted with Lampitis? (The love of vintage lamps).or is it Lampalia? I forget....

The cocktail shaker was Dan's Valentines gift. I had never seen one like that. My guess is mid-century but I can't find who designed it. It has a Georges Briard feel to it. I love the turquoise....HUM turquoise!
The glass was in Dan's Xmas stocking. I had no idea who Fred Press was...Now I dream of finding Fred Press glassware in every flea I visit....Both were Etsy finds.


The Numerology cocktail shaker was made in the 60's by Hazel Hatlas (Hazelware). It came with the original box. Another Etsy find. The seltzer bottle comes from France and was brought back by my Dad in the 60's. It is much older than that. My guess is early 1900's. I had been in love with the color since I was a wee girl.

Thanks for visiting! See you soon! :)

Such cool barware. I have an old bar that was my parents and I have a few pieces of older barware, they are a fun collectible.

I love those martini shakers. It doesn't hurt that I love martinis too. : ) I wish I could find something like that around here.

I hope you have a good day.

Great barware...I see Dan suffers from Barfia as well as Lampia...sure glad to hear he doesn't have the Ism that leads to the consumtion of the stuff that goes into those very cool shakers and glasses!

I always enjoy your VTT posts. The incredible stuff you find! The bar ware is divine. I agree...mm, turquoise. You know, as a kid, I wondered why everything was "aqua" as my mother called it. Even the beauty salons had aqua hairdryers. I thought it was very strange, but now I absolutely love it!

That shaker does look like Briard. The pattern looks like the Forbidden Fruit pattern I had on my white glasses.

P.S. I really NEED that seltzer bottle!

That blue bottle is beautiful! I luv that color. And the vintage glass reminds me of a set my mom had when I was a kid. Thanks for shareing. Julian

It would be a bad thing if we all liked and wanted the same thing. I think your husband's collection is nice for a man. The blue one is very pretty.

Stacey said...
