Between Dropping Off Peter Protzman Chairs At The Antique Mall And Picking Up And Delivering A Full Danish Dining Set At The Shop In Frenchtown I Managed To Find A Beautiful Pair Of Manhattan Glass Platters! Status: Tagged / Available!
The Manhattan pattern by Anchor Hocking seems to have only been produced between 1938 and 1943. They must have very very large amount of these pieces...because I seem to see find it alot! Case in point...I picked up a pair of platters just this weekend. Looking for some fabulous art deco style depression era glass? Stop by Frenchtown in St. Charles and check these out!
I've got a few other pieces of Manhattan glass here at home. I dig the simplicity of the pattern. It's
classically Art Deco. No frills or flourishes. And being less than delicate, it's a collectible pattern that
can be used daily. We've got a set of green glass Manhattan dinner plates that we use every day.
After poking around and delivering the Peter Protzman chairs (which all got bought up, by the way!) to
The Green Shag Market on Saturday we killed a little time before dining at Mangia Italiano (on South
Grand) by hitting a few thrifts. There wasn't much to be had but I was happy to find these. Seems like
I'm not having great luck lately but for real, I'm just not being as vigilant as normal. I just gotta start getting
outa' bed a little earlier on the weekends!
Oh, and in case you ain't looking for some pretty glass serving pieces...I've brought in a really pretty
chair to take over where the Protzmans left off! Yeah, I'm letting go of the Eames style lounger. With
having the Falcon chair in the living room there's just not enough room for it in the casa too. I'm sure
it'll find a new and loving home soon. Until then, it makes for a great place to relax at the shop!
