Meeting Highlights & Program

 

October 2015

 

Dolores provided an excellent program of some of her Scotty-inspired pieces.  Who knew that the captivating dog inspired so many objects?  Dolores's highlights showed a great variety of Scotty options, including the following treasures:

  • Carnival chalkware figures, which were given out at carnivals as prizes (prior to stuffed animals) in the first half of the 20th century

  • Lamps from unknown manufactures with begging Scotties or a basket of Scotties, made in the 1930s in fired on pink, fired on blue, frosted crystal, and panted

  • Roosevelt creamers, named due to Fala (FDR's popular Scotty), manufactured by LE Smith and given away in Grape Nuts Cereal

  • Lightbulb (!) made in the 1930s by Aerolux

  • Powder jars with three Scotty dogs, made in the 1930s by the Diamond Glass Company in pink, green, cobalt, crystal, and frosted crystal

  • Powder jars with one Scotty (called Bowser), made from 1930 to 1950 by the Jeanette Glass Company in pink, crystal, and marigold iridescent

  • Powder jars with one Scotty made by Akro Agate from 1939 to 1942 for dime stores in opaque blue shades from light powder blue to turquoise to cobalt, opaque white, opaque pink, lime green, dark green, transparent ice blue, and amber

  • Bookends made by Mosser from Cambridge molds for the National Cambridge Collectors to fund the rebuilding of the NCC museum, in red, cobalt, moonlight blue, crystal, black, frosted crystal, and frosted blue
