The Last Thing That You Acquired #41.
Those are lovely jesgord! As much as I like the wooden handles, I sometimes start my cooking stove-top, then I sling the pan into a hot oven. I wonder if the wood handles on those would get angry? Maybe not. Regardless, hug your dad.,,,those are sweet. I like em quite well.

Jesgord your Waterford Colorcast cookware from Ireland are goodlooking and functional like the other makes. I have them in white and the one in the center back with the coordinated lid (see attached image) for me is the best looking.
It all depends on the type of cooking one does and access to washing cookware (I don't have a cleaning staff but the little ones pitches in once in a while), any of those beautiful cookware can sometimes can get messy when left unattended to overheat/burn or used for the wrong type of cooking. Designate them for light simple low heat cooking like soups, stews and pasta and leave the greasy frying to the more utilitarian versions or use them for serving only to extend its lifespan.
I appreciate that the likes of Jens Quistgaard, Dansk and othermakers elevated enamelware from its humble utilitarian and low brow origins (remember those speckeled camping utensils) to an elegant beautiful functional objects.
I think Timo Sarpeneva's cast iron pot with teak handle is the most refined of them all.
Another weekend find!
Six model 225 chairs, designed by Henning Kjaernulf and manufactured by Bruno Hansen.
All the chairs are marked and in excellent original condition. Ca. 1960s

Another weekend find!
Tom Greene designed torch-cut brass and copper lighting fixture for The Feldman Company.
The Feldman Company was a lighting manufacturer and importer in Los Angeles.
Auntie Mark, this is the brutalist piece that I thought you might appreciate.....
A Johannes Aasbjerg solid teak dovetail edge dresser (currently missing legs) and a custom solid teak side table.
I noticed something new about Aasbjerg's construction as well: he aligned all his screw heads.
The poor dresser was very poorly cared for and needs work. I will document that in a separate thread.
