I found Fire King Copper-Tint Ovenware under my basement stepsPosted: November 16, 2013 Filed under: Fun Finds, Placesettings | Tags: Copper-Tint Ovenware, Fire King, new old stock, vintage 6 Comments
How long have I had this box of new old stock Fire King Ovenware? I’m embarrassed to say I don’t even remember where or when I found these. I’ve been cleaning out our overstuffed basement storage area and finding all sorts of forgotten goodies.
The box isn’t looking too hot after 50+ years.
Ah, but inside the box is a whole nother story! There are twelve pristine pieces of Copper-Tint with their original Guaranteed by Good Housekeeping stickers.
What’s most interesting to me is how modest these pieces seem in comparison to my super-sized contemporary Fire King 2000 pieces. Hum. People in the 60s didn’t have gym memberships. We might need to rethink what’s a “normal” serving size.
I couldn’t bear to peel the stickers off and use these. Copper-Tint never was one of my collecting passions, anyway. They’ll get to go to a new home. Imagine how great they’d look in a 1960s copper-accented kitchen in a split-level time capsule home.
I hope someone is going to love these when I finally get around to opening a Dish Sisters Etsy shop!
one of the nicest things about being a hoarder is discovering long forgotten treasures
Yes, you get the thrill of a Find without any expense! My kids probably hope I become a downsizer, though. 🙂
omg…those are so awesome!
I went to our town dump this week and found a Fire King swirl bowl in White. Not a chip or mark on it….
Love treasured finds!
Wow, I would be over the moon to find a Fire-King bowl like that!
Love the settings! Would you ever consider selling these?
Yes, actually I’m working on opening an Etsy shop. Hope to have it open before the end of the month!
