Houseware Department: Mallo-tone Ware

Fantastic plastic!

This post is part of a long series I am doing that showcases ads and products from old pharmacies and 5 and Dime stores.  All of the ads are scans from the publication Chain Store Age September 1955.  The products photographed are from my personal collection.  I am running this series on auto-post so I can work on some projects around my real house.  I will return at the end of this series (April or May) back to "normal".

I bet they are melamine. I have been looking for a set of these forever...an *affordable* set that is.

Yeah, I looked it up after I read about it here and boy, those things are pricey!

I did find a set once on ebay but forgot to bid (I think we were out of town and without internet access). It went for only 7 bucks (the opening bid)!!!! I was so mad with myself. It had the original box and all the pieces too.
