Certain Wright fans are fond of kicking Michael Graves around, I'm sorry to say. I love that square clock.
The 1936 pages, perhaps by a budding clothing designer/illustrator, are priceless. And the iron casserole is lovely.
But Spanky's new print takes the cake. Magnifico !

Mathieu Matgeot. 47" x 96".
Swallows up the wall nicely. Number 2 of 6, "Moment Supreme". Thank goodness the previous owners kept it in a dark room since they purchased it, the colors are vibrant.

What is the medium ? Not oil or acrylic, if it is subject to fading . . . ?

A stray plate found in the free pile of a church sale designed in 1957 by Enid Seeney and part of the Homemaker line by Ridgway Potteries Staffordshire England and features a 2-seater by Sigvard Bernadotte, the other plates features an armchair by Robin and Lucienne Day.  To this day, I still don't know who designed the kidney shaped ash veneer wood and knife edge top on prouve style metal legs that I found discarded ages ago.

Mmm -- sweet. I'd love a close-up shot of that tapestry, to see the texture(s) . . .

Thank you the kind words. The clock's order of display is also the level of satisfaction. A strange coincidence.

Nice plate. I would support the church and purchase that plate. Free is better. I am now aware of Enid Seeney and will remain alert for Homemaker line by Ridgway Potteries Staffordshire.

Niceguy, there are also versions produced in the USA by Homer Laughlin but not sure if those were legit or unlicensed look alike. The Homemaker pattern is also included in the Victoria & Albert Museum permanent collection.
Also that church had tried other non profit shops to pick up the leftover afterwards but most never show up or if they do, looks at the stuff like they had Ebola or something.

I went out and returned immediately with these Massimo Vignelli Max bowls, mugs and dinner plates for Heller. The pastels are somewhat difficult to find. The average price was 60¢ each. This is good

I will search for original. The V&A is a good standard to set in collecting. One man's trash is another man's treasure is true for you.

My first Quistgaard peppermill and a neat little beehive lamp. Can't believe they were left until the second day of the estate sale...

This one is from the trash pile, not valuable but just cool graphics by Olivetti from the 1960s. This one is the 5 year warranty card that came with a mid 1960s Olivetti typewriter. It will need a slightly bigger frame and white background but this will do for now.
