Red, Green, Yellow Kitchen Collectibles Warm Up Today's Kitchen

1930s And 1940s Kitchen-wares You Will Adore

I melt over red, yellow, green kitchen collectibles and generally buy these items quicker than other color combination. To me they represent visiting my "Grandma Sophie" who I have talked about often. (See Hot Kitchen And Home Collectibles of the 30s, 40s, 50s).

Grandma's Red And Yellow Kitchen

While I grew up in the 1950's, grandma's kitchen was a combination of 1930s and 1940's decor. As I have mentioned previously, red and yellow remind me of the times I sat at grandma's kitchen table watching her make chicken soup or cheese blintzes.

You'll Find These Vintage Kitchen Housewares At Kitsch n Stuff

These precious collectibles shown in this post are now in my shop Kitsch n Stuff which is part of the Collinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford, Connecticut.

I just added the hand painted goose today. Isn't his (or her) polka dot bow tie adorable? And the canister set...have you ever seen a set like this before? It is stamped "Maid Of Honor". The set has four tin canisters with different floral designs.

Last, but not least is the wonderful tulip beverage set. I'm guessing this red, green and white pitcher and glasses is from the 1940's. It was in surprisingly great shape. The printed tulips are
nice and clear and intact.
