Well I haven't been on the hunt for a couple of weeks now. I had the shakes...well you all know. Anyway I hit up two of my favorite thrifts on my way home yesterday...SCORE!
I have seen the Dansk Spiral Chrome Candle holder designed by Bertil Vallien on various sites I like to look at. I am sure I have walked right by these before without a glance. This time however, although it was tangled and knotted in all the "metals" area, I knew right away.
Does anyone have a good handle on the various Dansk productions? I see Dansk Japan, Taiwan, Sweden and who knows how many more. This one is Dansk Japan.
I also found this super cool...I love it so much...Nybro Candle holder. Almost looks like an Olympic Torch. I did find it's twin but it was broken in half. (Ok am I the only one who gets a little sad at that? Broken up family)
I haven't been able to find this yet but did find another mystery piece of mine while on the hunt. Will update that post.
Finally my 90 cent Kosta Boda Songbird vase. She was very dirty when I picked her up and I did a double take on the signature. I do not like this piece (friends speak now and she is yours) but as you know I can't leave anything to the mercy of the thrift.
Woo, long post for me. Stay cool in the heat everyone! Hit 108 on my car yesterday!
