Today we are happy to offer for sale a rare vintage set of mid century 1950’s Descoware enamel teapot and butter warmer! The Descoware brand of porcelain-coated cast iron cookware was created by David E. Sanford of the D.E. Sanford Company, later known as Desco Corporation. Sanford purchased the manufacturing rights to the Bruxelles Ware process from General Housewares Corporation in the 1940s, giving him the right to sell the products in the United States. Sanford was Knighted in the name of Belgium’s King Baudouin I in 1958 for his role in trade relations. This fabulous set features a bright and vivid yellow enameled ground with a Mod and Retro kitchen-themed patterned by designer Markley. Both pieces are wonderfully enameled and both are made in Belgium. The teapot features a copper and wood handle. The pieces are marked “Descoware” and “Made In Belgium”. Both teapot and butter warmer present very well and are in very good vintage condition, with very minor surface wear/scuffing/patina commensurate with age and light use. Add wonderful Mid Century style to your kitchen with this lovely set. Fresh to the market!
Dimensions of teapot: 9″ L x 7-3/8″ Diameter x 9-1/2″ H (w/ handle) Dimensions of butter warmer: 5-5/8″ L x 4″ Diameter x 2-3/4″ H
