Coolest Mug Ever And Other Pickings From Junque Shop Last Weekend. Status: Smalls-n-Stuff.
I wasn't sure if this was a genuine Herman Miller mug when the Girlfriend pointed it out at the Junque shop last weekend but I've spotted a few others on the web since. Neat, huh?! And since it doesn't say Herman Miller anywhere on it I can pretend it's a Broyhill Brasilia coffee mug too! I picked up a bag full of other smalls too. Wanna take a quick look?
More coffee mugs! Can you ever have too many cool vintage coffee mugs? These are like super
heavy duty too and have a beautiful glaze. They kinda remind me of Frankoma but are just
labeled "Oven Proof USA" on the bottom. Oven Proof? What would posses someone to put a
coffee cup in the oven? Maybe I'm just not old enough to understand. Speaking of Frankoma...
Again, the Girlfriend sussed this out and showed it to me. It's a warming base for a bean pot or
soup tureen. I think I've got a bean pot that will look great sitting atop this baby! In any event, I
think it's one of the coolest shapes in the Frankoma line. Note that there is a little place in the
middle for a votive or tealight candle.
I managed to find another Tikitty Cat too! I love these wooden cats. I've got either three or four
in various sizes now. I'm still looking to get some of those porcelain danish cats though.
Found a pair of small vintage modern lamps too. Finding matched shades is gonna be a challenge.
I might forgo the matched shades and just find what I can find. We'll see. I did actually find one
cool small barrel shade at the shop as well but forgot to take a picture of it. Oops. Sorry. No
matter, it was too big for these lamps and I'm not even sure if I have a lamp for it...yet. Did I
mention I got a cool coffee mug?
