Sorry I've had another look at the golden oak finish underneath which is puzzling as it wouldn't be fashionable in 50/60s?
Thanks for the love and comments ,I did recently buy them at the local Flea Market as they were priced at $10 Canadian each in as shown condition . The last thing I needed was 2 more chairs but the q...
A quarter of a penny , there were 240 pennies to an English Pound at that time , I remember using them till they were withdrawn in 1950s? Small change !
Glad you both appreciated it and that I finally got round to sharing this unusual image.
Thanks Malkey I'll certainly take a look at your Greener pieces . Glad I decided to post this. After TallCakes id'd this C.W. reclassified it as American pressed Glass! Still a great resource !
Many thanks TallCakes, amazing response time! I'm old and English myself ,probably why it spoke to me.
Thanks and back to you vetraio50 !
