Found another vintage Jere. About 52" wide. Couldn't pass it up for $7.




Hey Unca T,
How do you I D a Jere? Is there a makers mark on the piece’s or is it the knowledge that you have of their work or style?
Mahalo


The vintage C. Jere pieces are all hand signed in black pen and are usually very small. It can be a hide and seek game trying to find the mark on many of the vintage pieces. Many folks think C. Jere was a single artist but the company employed many many artist. The name is a compound of the founders names, Curtis Freiler and Jerry Fels. After hunting for this stuff awhile you can get a feel for the style. I tend to like the pieces from the late 60s through the 70s. My favorite is called the Labyrinth and is dated 1970 and is nearly 5' tall. The fan is from the early 80s but the signature is a bit shaky.







The signature on the Labyrinth is less than an inch long and a quarter inch tall.

Found a pair of sterling silver candlesticks at a local thrift store. Made by the Mueck-Carey Co. In the 1930s. Not a bad find for $6 and they are going to clean up beautifully.

My wife and I were killing time in Huntington Beach yesterday and checked out an estate sale. Saw this table that had some cool lines. wife had to have it-I was not sure I liked it when I saw what I thought was a Chinese Junk carved in relief on the top surface. On closer inspection here at home I think that it is a Junk although the rigging is different than any I’ve seen. Here’s some pix with the glass on and off.











Edited to add: Table in our living room with lamp found a couple of months ago

Jon, I have those two also. Found in the wild. Finding bar cocktail books is almost as much fun as finding a mug.
Cheers

I'm a music fanatic and went to an auction of a music production college that went under. I scored a pair of Klipsch La Scala Industrial speakers for a song. These were used in concert halls and sound fantastic.

My wife was thrilled to snag this mid century dinnerware at a thrift store.
