A recurring thread about all those wonderful advertisements of homes and products from a bygone era. Home design, landscaping, interior design, products such as flooring, furniture, kitchen cabinets, fixtures, cleaning/maintenance products, non electric kitchenware, etc. Basically everything else that is not covered in the Vintage Appliance or Cruise-O-Matic series. 

 

If you wish to contribute, please be mindful that your post does not contain watermarks or names of other individuals or sites. I'll try to keep posts at 100 or so before I start a new part.

 

Please note, some images are no longer viewable in the earlier parts. They were erased by the image storage site being used then. Sorry about that.

You're right Louie. The only way we saw these full color ads were in a magazine, as newspapers could not print that type of full color. Now, wherever you go, its ads about crap that is irrelevant to you. Like which pill gives you the dual bathtubs.

I have a Flint-Ware double boiler with lid that was one of my grandmothers.  Although the insert doesn't, the pan itself has some magnetic properties to it.  I'll be curious to see if it will work on induction.  It's a favorite pan of mine.  I wish I could have gotten the complete set of pans when it was being sold on the market.  I'm not sure it was still being sold in 1978 when I got my initial Revere Ware as a Christmas present.

If I remember correctly, Fire-King was a brand manufactured by Anchor Hocking Glass.

My mom still has a few pieces of Flint-Ware somewhere in the cabinets. She hasn't used them in years.

Ekco Flint

was the cookware my neighbor Thelma had. She and her husband had probably received it as a wedding gift when they married in '54.

Our church has a couple Flint pots, but unfortunately the bottoms on both are warped due to overheating.

I think these are tri-ply, which has a magnetic steel core for better heat transfer. They should work with induction.


Post# 933010 , Reply# 53   4/17/2017 at 20:05 by jamiel (Detroit, Michigan)        

I think Ekco Flint was the "alternative" to Revere Ware or Farberware during the 50s--not as good as the other two for heat conduction but easier to clean.

These are fascinating.  I love the style/design of the concrete home.   The Dishmaster is a tool that I have loved for years.  I am surprised it is not more popular than it became.   They are still in business.   Such a simple, practical and useful invention.

concrete homes

are great for hurricane prone areas. there are some near where I grew up, but they were not that attractive because they didn't style the blocks.
The Dishmaster is a nice faucet for those who don't use an electric dishwasher, but the ones I've seen wall mounted, and that's become passť for the kitchen.
