We’ve combined these nine items for a fun black plastic mid century mod collection for your entertaining or display. First piece is a handsome Genie server carafe which was designed and produced in 1966 by David Douglas for his company David Douglas & Co., Inc. in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. Douglas was a prolific designer of kitchenware and dinnerware. This carafe is made of Accalac, which was made to look and feel like wood but wear like iron. It was made at the time, circa 1966, of the iconic I Dream of Jeannie show and takes it shape from Jeannie’s Genie bottle from the opening of some episodes. Its tag portrayed it being used not only as a coffee carafe but as a vase and a wine carafe. These were sold under the name of Therm Ware and came in many colors; but, I’m partial to the black myself.
The next item in this collection is a black plastic salad set, or popcorn set in our house, by Styson Art Products Co. This is a seven-piece set comprised of one large boat-shaped serving bowl and six small boat-shaped portion bowls. This set is marked on the bottom dated 1956.
The third piece in this collection is an unsigned but unusual shaped serving bowl that we know you will find useful again and again. We know you will love having all these fun vintage mid century modern plastic collectibles. Make them yours.
