This one is from my grandmothers kitchen. Interesting thing they did with the logo, moving the capital “H” below the baseline and fitting “and gardens“ in that space. Don’t most makes it look a little wonky, but hey it was simpler times back then. The table cloth background and the type in The pot and pan shapes is classic. #betterhomesandgardens
These five 5 3/4 inch tall tumblers were part of a line called Thermo-Temp, made by the Mallory Randall Corp, Brooklyn New York. Mallory Randall started in business in 1947 and primarily engaged in the design, manufacture, and sale of food and drink accessories. Mallory Randall also made lines called Malloware and Mallo Belle melmac dinnerware!
This line is funky and would fit right in with a tiki bar or retro bar. They would also go well with Russel Wright dinnerware colors! A clear plastic outside layer permits one to see the raffia or burlap fabric in the middle layer. The inside is colored plastic. I have now seen 13 colors in this line: Mint green, Pink, Dark Pink (hot pink), Peach, Light Blue / Turquoise, Avocado green, Lemon Yellow, Lime Green, Purple (on brownish side), Pumpkin Orange/ Salmon, Mocha. Beige, and Chartreuse
What made these great and still makes them useful for picnic or camping or just plain yee-haw retro fun is that these cups are for either hot or cold drinks. Whether iced tea, lemonade, java, or hot chocolate with mini marshmallows floating on top, this is a fun way to serve them.
At an antique show where I used to set up to sell here in Vermont a few years ago, I learned from a few boomer fellow baby boomer customers that this pattern was distributed through gas stations in the late 1950s and 1960s here in New England. #thermotemp#thermotemptumblers#malloryrandy#tikibar#mixologist#mixology#vintagebarware#retrobarware#midcenturymodern#midcenturydesign#midcenturydecor#midcenturystyle#brooklyn#graphicdesign#yesteryearhere#bargecanalmarket#fivecornersantiques#retrostyle#vintagestyle#interiordecorating#midcenturybar#retrodesign#retrokitchen#kitsch#craftcider
We are off to see the Stones on their No Filter tour @twickenham_stadium tonight, still rocking it 56 years after their first concert at the Marquee Club in July 1962! Their biggest selling studio album “Some Girls” was released 40 years ago this month, it’s fabulously kitsch album artwork famously withdrawn and reissued after a number of famous beauties along with the estates of Marilyn Monroe and Judy Garland threatened to sue for the use of their image. This rare fluoro poster would have been torn down from a telephone pole in Los Angeles when the original album artwork was withdrawn
