This is the “Electro-Match” made by Korex. This is such an atomic piece and looks great on the coffee table.

Mel and I have been soo busy keeping our booths stocked at Midway Antique Mall.  I thought I would post some pics of some cool items we picked up recently.

The great thing is that this actually works!  Usually they don’t work, but we lucked out.

You might recognize these.  They are Cosmo De Salvo and are beautiful.  We found these at the Second Sunday Antique F air.  The frames need some oil and that is it.

I already have these, but will sell my old set and replace them with these.  I never noticed it before, but these were painted a couple of years apart.  The top one was painted in 1947 and the other was painted in 1943.

These are desert Bunnell’s and I love them!  Desert art isn’t very common from that era.  We have two of his other desert scenes already.

We acquired this rather large comedy and tragedy wall plaque from our friend Stephen and love them.  These will look great above one of our vintage televisions.  If you want to check out a really cool shop on eBay check out Stephen’s shop (halcyonline).

This restaurant menu was too cool to pass up.  I love the imagery.  It is soo cool to see the prices.  I am assuming this is from sometime in the 40’s.

We also picked up a couple more Carlos to add to our collection.   This is a cool bullfighter that will look great in our bedroom.

We ended up buying two of these. It looks like Cuban bongos with a dancer.

This is a cool jungle cat lamp. There is no makers mark on it but I love it. To me it looks like a Carlo painting.

This is a Continental Art Company lamp of a dancer holding bananas. I have the original shade. It needs to be cleaned and needs a few touch ups.
