Salem Hopscotch Pink Teacup and Creamer

I wish I could find more of this set in Pink or Turquoise. The shapes were designed by Viktor Schreckengost for Salem China in the late 50s. They differ from North Star mostly in shape. They also have less of a glaze and if you look close enough there's a speckled appearance to the white. They tend to be really hard to come by and usually the cost is pretty high. The designs are amazing and I love the feet on the teacup!

Around The Country With David Klein

Throughout the 1950s and 60s David Klein created some of the most timeless and award winning advertising posters for Trans World Airlines (TWA). His Mid Century Modern images immediately come to mind when one thinks of the Jet set life of the 1960s. What I find amazing is that there doesn't seem to be a collection of his work in book form. Hopefully with Pan Am hitting the airwaves next month, there might be some interest in putting a collection together.... it's long overdue. Here is a sampling of work for North American locations, soon to be followed abroad....
