Vintage Kitchen Metalware

Farberware stainless steel colander

If you’re tired of fighting with wimpy little plastic colanders that tip over or are too small to handle your big jobs, here’s the perfect colander for you! It’s a huge 11-1/2" diameter x 5-1/2" tall vintage Farberware stainless steel colander with a 5-7/8" diameter x 1" tall pedestal base. Perfect for draining boiled shrimp or pasta for a dinner party or large family gathering. Plenty of drainage holes on the sides and bottom, and nice large attached handles. Measures 14-1/4" across at the handles. Stamped “Farberware Stainless Steel, 786 Korea, 08811” on the bottom. By the way, did you know that Farberware began in 1900 when S. W. Farber opened his workshop on Manhattan’s Lower East Side? A master metal smith and inventor, Farber’s company has always produced exceptional cookware, percolators, kitchen appliances, etc., and is still in business today. This marvelous vintage colander is in great condition with no dings or dents. Interior shows normal light usage scratching consistent with its age. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Woodpecker toothpick holder

Here is a unique mechanical toothpick holder that dates to at least the late 1930's or early 1940's. I know because it sat in my mother’s china closet from my earliest memory and we kids always loved to play with it and make the woodpecker pick up a toothpick with his sharp double-pronged bill by pushing down on his brilliant red comb. They were flat wooden toothpicks, a number of which are still in the log holder, and he still picks them up perfectly! This great piece of nostalgia is 3-3/4" long x 1-1/2" wide x 2-7/8" high. Makes a wonderful display piece and who knows, it might still fascinate your kids or grandkids even in this age of TV and video games! (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Polar stainless steel meat platter

This vintage 9-3/4" x 17-1/4" x 3/4" deep stainless steel tray is the perfect size for carving roasts, hams, or even turkeys! Bottom is marked “Polar Stainless Steel, Type 16-8, Made in U.S.A.” and carries the numbers 1710 and 4-66. Founded in 1907, the company is still in business today and advertises that: “Polar Ware is a USA manufacturer of quality deep drawn products and custom components in stainless steel and other metals. Serving the Manufacturing, Professional Food Service, Health Care and Micro-Brewing Industries since 1907.” Our tray is in gently used condition with light spotting and usage scratching normal to these vintage stainless steel pieces. Could do with a good polishing, but perfectly usable as is and a very practical addition to any kitchen. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Permite cast aluminum meat platter

This waaay vintage heavy cast aluminum meat platter measures 11" x 16-1/4" x 1-5/8" tall. Large center design is reminiscent of a saguaro cactus, at the bottom of which is a deep well for juice containment that runs the full width of the tray. Stands on four knob feet, the two at the well end being shorter than the two at the top for stability on a countertop or table. Bottom is marked “Permite” and carries the number 423. This meat platter has already lived a long useful life and is thoroughly spotted, but has no damage whatsoever. It’s ready to go on working for a new owner for at least the next 50 years!

Aluminum roasting pan

This vintage aluminum roasting pan measures 11" wide x 17" across at the handles x 2-1/2" tall, making it the perfect size for roasts, hams, or even turkeys! Unmarked as to maker, this pan is in gently used condition with light spotting and usage scratching normal to these vintage aluminum pieces. Could do with a good polishing, but perfectly usable as is and a very practical addition to any kitchen. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Tiara Desserts pan

Will someone please tell me when Tiara Desserts were all the rage? Evidently I managed to miss a major baking craze somewhere along the line. When I found three of these pans packed away in a box of vintage kitchen things that had belonged to Ol’ Swaphos’ mama, I didn’t have a clue what they were. But lo and behold, there are plenty of Tiara Dessert recipes online, if not the pans to make them in. Our three pans are the real deal, marked “Ekco Baker’s Secret Duncan Hines Tiara Desserts” on their non-stick interiors. They measure 10-1/2" in diameter at their scalloped tops x 1-1/2" high and have indented bottoms and tapered fluted sides. None of them looks like it’s ever been used, but they have a few minor scratches from being stacked together for so long. As stated, we have three of these pans and price is for each.

Vintage toothpick caddy

No mere toothpick holder, this vintage silver plated beauty is a unique 2-piece lidded toothpick caddy and storage container. Standing 4-1/2" tall with a 2" diameter base, you raise the finial-topped 1-1/2" diameter lid to pull up the concave toothpick holder. Not only are the toothpicks kept clean and dust free, but they can’t spill out because the holder rises only as far as the carved band encircling the caddy. Decorative, clever, and downright practical! No maker’s marks on the bottom, just an outline where a paper label was originally affixed. I’ve never seen another piece like this, except for its mate. Yes, we have two of these great old caddies and, except for the tarnish, both are in excellent condition with no dents or dings. Price is for each. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Sheffield condiment caddy

This vintage nickel silver condiment caddy stands 4-1/2" tall with a 3-1/4" diameter base featuring three sets of floral piercings surrounded by a band of small pierced circles around its perimeter. Center post appears to be brass and the top carrying ring has the appearance of pewter. Made to hold a 3-piece condiment set, possibly salt and pepper shakers and a toothpick holder, each of 7/8" diameter. Bottom is marked Apollo Sheffield Made in U.S.A., BRS Nickel Silver, and a number that may be S648. Reasonably good condition for its age, with no dents or dings. (Click on picture for more images.)

Set of vintage copper finished seashell dishes

This is a set of one large and four small copper finished metal seashell dishes. The large one is 5" x 5-1/4" and stands about 3/4" tall. Each of the four smaller ones is 3" x 3-1/4" and stands about 1/2" tall. They are in various states of patination, and there’s no consistency from piece to piece, as you can see from the photos. Other than that, they’re all in perfect condition, with no dents or scratches. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Armetale “Daily Bread” tray

This vintage 9-1/4" x 6-1/2" cast aluminum bread tray was created by Wilton Armetale, a family-owned and family-run business founded in 1892 by Ralph P. Wilton, Sr. in Lancaster County, PA. The tray’s gently flared sides sweep outward and upward to 1-1/4" on the short sides, curving downward to 3/4" in the middle of the long sides. Interior has a deeply etched figure of a farmer with his scythe working in a wheat field, surrounded by “Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread” in Olde English script. The bottom has some extremely faint writing and several equally faint maker’s marks.

All Wilton patented metals retain cold and heat, keeping everything cooler or warm longer. They are oven safe, but require hand washing since putting them in the dishwasher ruins the finish. Wilton products are hand made in the USA from sand molds with a food-safe aluminum alloy.

Still in business today, Armetale products are sold in department stores and specialty stores throughout the United States and internationally. The Armetale folks list their newer version of this tray (shiny mirror finish) on their web site for $26.50, but I think these old ones with the matte finish are far more beautiful. This one is in superb vintage condition with no dings or any damage whatsoever. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.
