Last week I went to the Blue Mountains with my daughter and ably guided by recommendations from our own IronLace we visited some op shops there. Many op shops around my area remain closed and it was nice to visit some, we were both in withdrawal.
My daughter as usual looked for work clothes. I am always found in bric-a-brac, and these are a few things I found.
Vintage Japanese glass! Of course! A nice water or cocktail pitcher by Sasaki, a covered bowl by Ishizuka, and a cool textured bowl I know is Japanese and think is maybe Sasaki too.
I also found the penguin clothes brush, unused, with tag, and still in it's fab original box. Made in Hong Kong and I'm thinking late 50s/early 60s.
The two animals are Australian made. The koala is probably also 50s/60s and maybe Vetraio, fount of great knowledge, will have an idea who by. The kangaroo and joey are newer, unmarked, and nicely modeled.
Thanks to Marin a good day was had!
