Hart Child’s Cooking Set – SOLD

Hart child's cooking set

Hart child’s cooking set

When I first saw these Hart pots and pans I just assumed that they were for actual cooking – Hart is a South African brand that makes cooking pots, enamel bread bins, galvanised buckets – things that you actually use in a home. But after a few seconds I realised that there was no way that these pans were big enough to make anything with, so I assumed that they must be a (very cool!) children’s play set. And then my good friends, Bridget & Helen, popped round for a visit and it turns out that they have the exact same set at home that Bridget played with as a child, but not in nearly as good a nick as these (their words, not mine), so it’s definitely meant for playing with. That’s pretty cool isn’t it? The set is in great nick , with most of the pots still having their original Hart stickers, but there are some scratches here and there, although nothing too serious.

A great bit of fun that would make a wonderful gift for the next baby shower you attend – it’ll beat a Woolies baby grow hands down!

Dimensions: Pot – 8cm tall x 10cm in diameter; Tall pot – 10cm tall x 7.5cm in diameter; Saucepan 5cm tall x 7.5cm in diameter; Frying pan 2.5cm tall x 13cm in diameter

Price: R130 for the set

Hart and Hart Enamel Coffee Pot – SOLD

Looking at how the enamel has dulled on the inside of this H&H enamel coffee pot I think it’s safe to assume that it was well loved (and well used) in its time! But it’s still in reasonably good nick – definitely good enough to carry on using as a tea or coffee pot.

A nice piece of solid enamelware with the sweetest floral pattern – this would make a fine addition to any enamel collection.

Dimensions: 19cm tall x 11cm in diameter

Price: R120

How lucky was I to find yet another vintage Hart water bottle?! So lucky! Even Happiness knows how excited I get when I find one of these bottles – she smiled knowingly when I bought it home, and said “Your favourite”! And this one looks like it’s in perfect nick – no damage to the lid, and the glass is nice and clean. The perfect water bottle – it will fit neatly into your fridge door and look great on your verandah table when you have guests round for lunch. A real winner!

Dimensions: 23cm tall (with lid on) x 12cm wide x 7cm deep

Price: R120

Hart Water Bottle – SOLD

I don’t think that there’s much that  can say about this water bottle that I haven’t said before! I love the ridged lines and the bakelite lid. Often the lids are a bit worse for wear, but here the glass and the plastic are in pretty decent nick. The ideal water bottle – so much nicer (and healthier) than the plastic alternative.

Dimensions: 23cm tall (with lid on) x 12cm wide x 7cm deep

Ridged Hart Water Bottle – SOLD

6 Oct

I’m sure I’ve waxed lyrical about these Hart water bottles before – I love them , and buy them everytime I find them, which sadly is not that often at all. I’m lucky enough to own three myself. Two of them I use for holding bubble bath (the colours look so pretty in the ridged glass!), and the third one I use as a water bottle in my fridge. The glass is nice and thick so they’re quite hardy, and the ridges make them that much more special. I have a bit of a thing for ridged glass – my poor builder had to hunt high and low to find ridged glass for my bathrooms, and it was well worth it.

Dimensions: 23cm high x13cm wide x 7cm deep

Double Boiler – SOLD

15 Jul

Hart double boiler

Hart double boiler

This is a fairly functional piece of kitchenware, although it’s function is what is so exciting (at least to me)- melting chocolate, cooking custard – all those delicious things that are so good for us! The double boiler is made by Hart, and has definitely been put to good use over the years. The black enamel on the handles is a bit chipped and there are a few scratches and dings in the body, but nothing that’s going to affect it’s performance – and despite not being colourful and shiny, I quite like its back-to-basics aesthetic.

Dimensions: 20cm high x 17cm at its widest

Price: R150
