They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Decor plastic servers Japanese tray

Sadly not 1956 iconic Danish designed Herbert Krenchel Krenit salad servers. They’re 1970s Decor plastic made in Australia. Replica but vintage.

So what’s vintage? 20+ years is the general consensus. Being old isn’t enough to make something valuable, but it does help. Observe the Zoo Line Kay Bojensen ‘inspired’ AKA knock-off teak monkeys circa 1950s, now selling for almost the same price.

I doubt these cute orange plastiques will ever appreciate that much in value but until I feel comfortable paying in the vicinity of $75 for a pair of the original salad servers [which is probably never] I do appreciate their useful good looks.
I’m quite fond of old Decor, [but not as much as this guy] and the deceptively cool, genuinely retro faux bois [fake wood] Japanese tray.

Fake it til you make it? What do you think of replicas?


And to finish…for your viewing pleasure comes more classic faking. Enjoy xx

I won’t ask about that one…

A chicken and an egg are lying in bed.
The chicken leans back smoking a cigarette, satisfied.

The egg grabs the sheet and rolls over saying
Well, I guess we finally answered THAT question.
