My latest vintage finds

vintage chippy telephone seatvintage chippy telephone seat

1960’s Chippy telephone seat – a bargain Ebay purchase. The seat tucks away when not in use and I really like the pull-out wipe-clean telephone number notepad.  It needs abit of work and I will recover the seat with bright vintage fabric, but what a cool item. It will look great in the hallway.

(The telephone was my mum and dads, we had it in the house when I was little. It still has the card in it with our old 4 digit telephone number on!)

1960’s Danish String Light made by lighting company Quality System, designed by artist Flemming Brylle and industrial designer Preben Jacobsen. Another exciting Ebay find. I don’t think it has ever been put together, all the little pieces are still in the box along with the instructions.

vintage TC4 picquotware teapot

1962 TC4 PicquotWare Teapot. I found this in a charity shop the other day for £4. I collect vintage teapots and coffee pots, and this cute one has made a nice addition to my collection – I love the wood teamed with aluminium.

A bit of mid-week mid-century loveliness!
