dansk-ing it up

 Hello Everyone!

I wanted to stop by and share a few of my recent goodies.

Eyeball Lamp



I happened across this awesome "Eyeball" Lamp from Underwriters' Laboratories at a yard sale. I don't know anything about it, except it's pretty sweet.



  Eyeball Lamp Lit



 



My lidless and stained Dansk Kobenstyle aren't food safe anymore, but will still look great sitting on my shelf.

 


I found this piece of boomerang Formica at the same yard sale. I think it was the piece that was cut out for the placement of the sink. It was turned into a coffee table at one point, but has since lost its legs. I hope to turn it back into a coffee table at some point.


  My Favoritest Find - Ever. 


This is the best handmade vintage skirt, hands down.


  Dansk Spider Candleholder 


Lastly, I scored a Dansk Spider Candle Holder.

Sa-Wheet!

Please visit my blog froog and doog to see what else I've been up to.

Thanks!

  1. I've never seen that version of the lamp before, I own 3 similar ones that don't have the red insert. The pots would make excellent planters too! I love the skirt, I'm definitely a sucker for a novelty print, especially as one as Americana as your covered wagon scene.

    1. I think the red might just be a lightbulb that was purchased afterwards. I'm not sure, though:) Thank you for loving the skirt!!

  2. How bad are the insides of the Kobenstyle? Dishwashing detergent left in one of those overnight does wonders.

    1. Two of mine have rust in them, and one has big chips out of the enamel so the black is showing. I'm sure the one with the chips will be okay to use, but I'm iffy about the rusty ones. Please go to my blog to see photos of the insides, I didn't post them here. Please let me know what you think!

  3. What makes your Dansk pots no longer food safe? I have a couple with chips and scratches in them. Please tell me that is not dangerous! I use them all the time!

    1. Mine are rusted, so I think they're not usable anymore. Chips and scratches should be fine, I think, unless someone else has a different idea. I'm new to enamelware:)

  4. Lesley, yours look fine to use, if there are chips I can't see them. Try the dishwashing detergent trick, I use 'Finish' it does the trick. soak the pan in water pour in a good amount of the detergent let it sit overnight and use a nylon scrubbie and a lot of that should come up. To prevent rust on those chips dry them as soon as you get them wet.

    I've always thought the chips were not to be used as it exposed the enamel coating and steel. If you go over the chipped area with a fingernail and the paint comes off DANGER do not use! but if it doesn't you'd probably be safe. That's just the area that's touching food, if it's on a handle or the outside it doesn't matter.

    The 'pallea' pan, which is actually just a chaffing dish, people just call it that. Though I have no idea why as pallea wasn't a popular dish when these pans came out. Should not be used for cooking. It's not made for that only warming food. Use it for display or serving don't ever put it in the oven.

    1. Thanks, Ana, that definitely helps a lot! I like to use my vintage kitchenware. I will try the soaking method. And thanks for the heads up about the chaffing dish. I just love the shape of it and will happily use it for display.

  5. Hi-

    I love the lamp and have a little info on it. My dad worked at UL for over 30 years, and they actually don't make products, they simply test them for home use and safety. All home electrical items- appliances, electronics, etc. are usually tested by UL and then receive a UL sticker or tag as evidence they have undergone safety testing. It is so cool- congrats and enjoy!!

    1. Oh, that is awesome! Thank you for the information. I wonder who made it, then? That was the only thing on the lamp telling me any information. Thank you again for your insight.
