This charming 3.5 inch diameter and .5 inch high ceramic small tray/dish has an Art Deco - Retro style Scandinavian blue design of seagulls and 2 sailboats surrounded by a border of waves and the words: SOLSTRAND FJORD HOTEL, and a small lifesaver bearing the word, STAVANGERFLINT. Except for very light crazing from its over half a century of age, and a light blank line (occurred in the application of the design itself) that reaches from the sailboats to the lifesaver (see photo), its condition is excellent. Built in 1896 by Christian Michelsen, Norway’s first prime minister, the lovely and historic 4 star Solstrand Fjord Hotel in Bergen, Norway still operates today. Feel free to combine shipping.

Ingeniously carved horn bird peers quizzically at you. He’s 11.25 inches long but stands about 8 inches high.I have no idea as to his nationality, but I know he has some age, because he has a small age split on one leg. Even though he’s also missing the outside toe/claw on each foot, it doesn’t seem to affect his ability to stand. Probably 1940 -1960. See photos.

6 inch tall by 3 inch wide water goblet with mold lines along both sides. In excellent condition. Probably a "Big Top" peanut butter glass produced by Hazel Atlas company in the 1950's, because I remember being a kid and scooping the peanut butter out of it. Creamy, not chunk. We had all sorts of freebie glasses and towels then. I gave the others away, but saved this one because of the more unusual tapered shape and thumb print pattern.
