American Tourister

So I found these wonderfully mod looking American Tourister bags from the mid 1970s at the store this week.

One in turquoise:

One in brown, with a great gold pattern:

Oh, can't see the pattern well in the pics - that's cause I suck at taking photos!!  Oh my goodness, like 30 minutes in lightroom just trying to get the colour right and still nothing.  Grrr.  Anyhow, these will be heading right away into my Etsy shop.  I love this buckles on these things, very art deco-y.

I also found this vase.
Now that picture almost seems to have the correct colour!  It's a heavy pottery vase, the flowers on it are maybe bluebells?  It's a really nice piece with a completely (to me) unrecognizable signature at the bottom.
Anyone, anyone?  Bueller, Bueller?  I'm gonna go check out A La Modern to see if I can find out anything about pottery marks as she seems to have alot of info on it.  It may be just local, I really don't know.

Happy Thrifting guys!
