Here Are A Few New Things

IMG_3813Mel and I have been so busy trying to keep our store stocked.  We have driven all over northern California looking for things we think are cool.  Of course, not everything we buy is for the store.  After all, we are collectors before we are dealers.  The above piece is a new James Bunnell jungle cat we acquired.  We have a few of his jungle cats now (jungle cat 1, Jungle cat 2, jungle cat 3)

IMG_3811Here we have a fantastic 1959 Lane swan and ballerina tv lamp.  This will look great near a ballerina Carlo of Hollywood.  We picked this up from Rusty Relics and Funky Finds in Midway Mall.

IMG_3781We have been lucky as far as Tiki goes.  Here are some pieces we picked up to add to our collection.

IMG_3785While at Midway Mall, we also picked up these killer lamps.  We already have one, so this will make a set of three.  We also acquired another set of six band rattan that I will pick up this Saturday.  It will need upholstery and some restoring but it will be well worth it. I will have pictures soon.

IMG_3809This is a really cool bowl made by Trader Dick’s.

IMG_3787This set is so vibrant we could not pass it up.  The hibiscus flowers look so cool.

IMG_3790This is a menu cover used on the Matson Lines cruise ships and was painted by Eugene Savage (1883-1978).  I plan to get this framed with a bamboo frame.

IMG_3800This book is a trip.  It is bound in leather and has that fantastic image on the front.  This book was released in 1960 and covers the history of Hawaii.

IMG_3780Here is one of the most atomic looking televisions ever made.  This is a 1971 Panasonic Orbital television.

TheOrbital-Ad-blogHere is what the original ad looked like and here is also the television commercial.

IMG_3778This one works but has a few cosmetic issues, nothing major.

IMG_3773This unit just screams Mad Men.  I love the styling and the sleekness of it.  This would look great sitting on a shelf on a wall unit.  This was given to us by our new friend Jenn.  She’s proof that there are still good people out there :).  Thanks Jenn, this will stay in our collection.

IMG_3774This Panasonic will need a little work on the veneer, but overall it is in fantastic shape.  I still need to check the functionality of the unit.

IMG_3801This is an unmarked/un-engraved trophy that we came across.  I plan to clean it up and see what unique inscription we could add to it.

IMG_3806This set is so fun.  We love the colors and think it will dress up any bar top.

IMG_3808Each piece has wear, but I like them the way they are.

downloadWe also received this popcorn ceramic figurine set in the mail from one of our blog readers Dena (JuicyLucyVintage).  She gave this to us as a gift and we are soo thankful.  Click here to check out her Etsy store.

IMG_3815This is a fantastic mid-century Detecto scale.  We love the color combination.

IMG_3817This Jeco Electric clock is rather large and has a great Mid Century feel to it.  Picking has been going well for us lately and we hope the momentum keeps up!

Awesome Econolite Bunnell Silk Screen Score

IMG_3456

Mel and I picked this up recently from a gentleman who is trying to settle his mother’s estate.

IMG_3453

This appears to be the original frame!

This piece is a large size and is in great shape for its age.  It has some character to it, but nothing major.

IMG_3455

I have always been a fan of Bunnell and we have many of his works.  There is something about his work that always pleases me when I see it.

IMG_3454

I have only ever seen Carlo of Hollywood have an image like this.  Maybe Bunnell liked Carlo’s painting so much that he decided to make his own rendition.  I love both of their examples.

Here is the elusive Carlo of Hollywood Jungle Cats fight scene.

IMG_3464

This is the makers sticker on the back of the Bunnell.  This piece needs new backing on it, but I can knock that out later.  This piece will be added to our other loved Bunnell’s.

Some items we recently acquired…

IMG_2625

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.

IMG_2627

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

IMG_2628

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.

IMG_2615

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.

IMG_2577

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).

IMG_2604

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.

IMG_2606

IMG_2602

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.

IMG_2630

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

IMG_2633

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.

IMG_2600

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.
