1950's LINCOLN BEAUTYWARE KITCHEN CANISTERS

Today is two cool 50's kitchen canisters I found.

1950's Lincoln Beautyware...
I just found the Sugar and Flour ones.   
Both chromed Steel and very well made.
Awesome graphics on these.   

Can hold a pound of flour without any trouble.
I store rice in the sugar one...
The bottom.
They look great next to my stove.   These aren't so uncommon that you can't find them.  Now you know what to look for.  I'd like to find the others that go with the set....  It's Vintage Gear for Guys!

NOS PILGRIM PIGSKIN DRIVING GLOVES

Today it's a cool pair of NOS vintage driving gloves.

From Pilgrim.  In unlined pigskin.
My dad had a similar pair back in the 60's that were lined and almost falling apart they were worn so much.
This pair doesn't look used at all.   Sized medium.
I like the three lines they always put on fancy gloves.
It's getting harder and harder to find NOS vintage wear.   But if you keep looking you might get lucky.  It's Vintage Gear for Guys!

LATE 50'S PANASONIC RC-1091 CLOCK RADIO

today it's a cool old alarm radio clock I picked up...

It's a vintage late 50's Panasonic clock radio.
Very Space Age looking.
Has clock, AM radio and alarm.
Very cool for a swinging pad... or if you like Ames style stuff.
Still works.  Probably needs a tune up after all these years, but still in great shape.
Check out the "atomic" dials...
Cool old clocks are a must for a Vintage Gear Guy....

VINTAGE THERMOS BOTTLE 2280

Today it's my new Thermos!

Actually an old Thermos to be exact...
It matches my lunchbox (previous post) and fits inside it perfectly...
Red plastic lid/cup.
So old it still takes a cork!   Can you imagine using corks today on a thermos?   It's even the original cork as it's stamped Thermos Brand!
Glass lined.  I bet these are much cleaner after a year or two of coffee then the new stainless models... 
Still made in the USA...  
Model 2280 to be exact.
All the pieces...  What a beautiful little item this is.  Don't you wish they still made them like this?   It's Vintage Gear for Guys!
