Antiques and Collecting: Edison lamp shed light on phonographs

Phonographs were invented in 1877.

The early versions had one needle for recording and another needle for playing.

The music was recorded on tinfoil-coated cylinders using a needle to make tiny lines that, when played with the other needle, made sounds.

Thomas Edison, the inventor, founded his own company to make phonographs. He also invented movies, the light bulb and many other things, but failed to create a cement that could be used to make a case for the phonograph.

His phonograph company was successful for a while, and he even designed a combination phonograph-lamp in about 1920. The lamp was made to be kept on a table in the living room so the whole family could listen.

Many versions were made in the popular styles of the day. A design called a Phonolamp was made about 1920. It had an electric motor, metal case and an embroidered lampshade. These combination lamps soon went out of style but are treasured by phonograph collectors. A rare, working Phonolamp recently was sold in a German auction for $1,967.

Q: I have a print by Maude Goodman and I’m wondering about its age and value.

A: Maude Goodman (1860-1938) was born in Manchester, England, and moved to London. She did sentimental paintings of women and children in Victorian settings. Her work was relatively unknown until the 1880s.

Several of her paintings were exhibited in the Royal Academy of Arts in London in the late 1800s. Artwork has to be seen by an expert to determine the value. An original lithograph of one of her works sold at auction for $177, but many online sites sell reproductions of original works of art for $10 or less.

Q: I have a set of dishes marked “Stetson China Rio.” The dinner plates all have the stamped mark, but the platters, bowls and cups and saucer are not marked. Are these knockoffs?

A: Stetson started as a decorating and distributing company in 1919 in Illinois.

By 1946, Stetson China Co. was making ceramic and Melmac (plastic) dinnerware. The company closed in 1966. Pieces often were not marked. The word “Rio” is the shape name.

Your set probably was made about 1950. Many patterns were hand-painted on this shape. Stetson dinner plates sell for about $20 from matching services.

Outdoor entertaining with indoor style

Hosting an outdoor party on the balcony or in the backyard has often involved a run to the big-box store for utilitarian paper goods and plastic plates, and setting the table with a mishmash of random bowls and tea lights.

But this summer there’s a range of decor and serveware with the more sophisticated look and feel of indoor-quality goods — part of a growing trend toward blurring indoor/outdoor decor lines.

“Outdoor spaces should really be thought of as an extension of your living room, and that definitely applies to entertaining,” says Kara Smith of SFA Design, a bicoastal luxury design firm. “The furnishings should be as approachable as the interior, so that guests feel comfortable.”

A look at some of what designers and retailers are offering:

Article.com has a teak and powder-coated-steel dining table with midcentury modern/industrial style that could live indoors as well as out. The Bali pendant light looks like rattan, but is really hardy, woven synthetic fiber; a weatherproof rubber insulates the power cord.

This undated photo provided by Anthropologie shows a rattan bar cart with French bistro style elements, which adds flair to the backyard or city terrace outdoor space.

Anthropologie’s new outdoor collection includes a woven, natural, blue-and-white rattan bar cart, table and chairs that evoke a chic French outdoor café. Here too, British designer Tracey Boyd’s Twill and Atlas ceramic side tables, with interesting geometric patterns.

Digital printing and improved materials and manufacturing are giving us wonderful new indoor/outdoor rugs that are a far cry from the slippy, cheap-looking plastic mats of a few years back.

This undated photo provided by Frontgate shows a rug that looks like a slice of agate and is an unexpected and interesting option that can be used both outdoors and in. 


Frontgate via AP

Frontgate has the hip, geometric color-block Halia rug that’s colorfast and stain-resistant. Yet the hand-tufted, looped pile makes for a soft, plush feeling underfoot. Also here, a sea green and blue abstract design rug inspired by a slice of agate. Extending the mineral theme: a Palm Springs-style dining table crafted of Brazilian blue quartz on a sleek steel base. Or evoke the British West Indies with the Montserrat dining chair, inspired by traditional wing chairs but built of cast aluminum and outdoor-worthy woven materials and finishes.

One of the biggest trends in outdoor decor, and a boon to al fresco home entertaining, is deep, comfortable seating. We’re seeing roomy sofas and chairs with all the style and finish chops of indoor furniture.

RH Modern has the Balmain collection, designed by Australian brothers Harrison and Nicholas Condos. Inspired by the lines of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the modern, minimalist pieces include sofas, swivel chairs and ottomans, with either teak or aluminum frames, and can be custom-covered in hundreds of performance-grade fabrics.

Another chic option at RH Modern: the Positano chair. Milan-based Toan Nguyen created a contemporary twist on basket-weave with an oversize, woven teak frame that makes a comfy lounger for an entertaining-oriented outdoor space.

This undated photo provided by Article shows the Bali pendant light fixture. The fixture looks like rattan but is actually woven of weather-resistant poly material. Available in black or white in a couple of sizes, it’s a stylish lighting option for an outdoor patio or terrace. 


Article via AP

Anchoring the outdoor entertainment zone with furniture and a rug is important, but don’t forget lighting.

Lamps Plus has a chandelier with a weathered-zinc finish and a trio of seeded-glass shades for a soft illumination.

At Uttermost, find a collection of hand-carved slate and hammered copper indoor/outdoor table lamps by designer Carolyn Kinder of St. Petersburg, Florida.


+3 

This undated photo shows Merritt’s melamine dinnerware which combines design elements of fine tableware with weather resistance, making it a good option for those looking to enhance their outdoor entertaining game using goods with a more elevated style and substance. A realistic marble pattern reflects the current trend in tabletop accessories toward stoneware. 


Dennis Skinner, Merritt via AP

Tableware is another area where manufacturing advancements have led to higher quality outdoor products.

Los Angeles-based Merritt has a collection of marble-printed dinnerware that closely resembles the real thing, with heft and pattern depth we haven’t associated with melamine before. A botanical print edged with a bamboo motif has the look and feel of fine china.

World Market has acrylic highball glasses that look like cut crystal, and there are elegant champagne and wine glasses here too.

“One of the best parts of summer is the chance to do some outdoor entertaining,” says Todd Childs, assistant homes editor at Southern Living magazine. “Give your dining room the summer off. Invite some friends over and take the fun outside.”

Annual pottery luncheon celebrates weddings

A Red Wing Collectors Society Foundation event, the luncheon was inspired by a newspaper clipping from 1953. Museum Manager Robin Wipperling said the story described a luncheon put on by Red Wing Potteries to celebrate that year’s anniversary.

Ladies of the community were invited to come and see the new dinnerware designs. Guest speaker was William Ware, who designed patterns including the popular Capistrano.

Wipperling decided to recreate the event, but with some changes.

As people gather at noon at the St. James, they will have an opportunity to visit with Jane Struss, who was among women pottery workers who painted plates. Other former painters may also be on hand, Wipperling said.

There will be music and beverages, and people can bid on silent auction items including themed baskets and original Red Wing pottery that has been donated for fundraising purposes.

At 12:30 p.m. a California salad with chicken and fruit will be served on Red Wing dinnerware. Hanisch Bakery is donating cupcakes for dessert.

Wipperling decided to have a style show again this year partly because last year’s parade of fashions linked to dinnerware patterns through the decades was a success.

Beyond that, she said, “I have heard more couples say, ‘I got that Red Wing dinnerware pattern for my wedding.'” Seeing those patterns again and matching them with wedding gowns from the different eras should be entertaining for all.

At least one of the vintage gowns will be displayed rather than worn by a model. Wipperling has the original dress, veil and underslip from the Ruth and Lawrence Horstmann wedding that took place Oct. 27, 1945.

Family and friends will model several other gowns from the 1950s to the 1980s, plus a few bridesmaid dresses. The models will be head-to-toe in lace and pearls, velvet and organza, with headpieces and veils and trains, plus they will be carrying flowers donated by Hallstrom Florist.

Emcee will be Nancy Barth, who will make sure the event is interactive, Wipperling said.

Affair for Dinnerware is open to everyone — men and women. Seating is limited to 72; tickets are $40. There will be door prizes, and people will have an opportunity to purchase the table decorations ‑ Red Wing vases filled with fresh flowers.

Proceeds benefit the museum, but the event does more than raise money, Wipperling said. It also educates people about dinnerware and its history and enhances awareness of the museum and its mission.

Tickets can be purchased at the museum gift store or by calling 651-327-2220.
