Harmony House Melmac set in used fair condition. This "Talk of the Town" square mod version of melamine is hard to find-- Some of the photos were taken outside in sunlight and make the items look brighter than they are, the 2nd photo is more accurate colorwise as they are muted tones and the dishes have been used. All show use, some dulling and imperfections such as nicks to the edges or bases. The dinner plates in green are lighter than the rest of the greens so I don't know why or if at one time there were more colors. Same with the dinner plate in beige, it is lighter than the rest of the tan accompaniments. There is some dulling and scratching, some nicks present, but overall it is the dinner plates that show the most wear. You can zoom to see scratching.

You get:

6 Cups - dulling but ironically no stains. a small nick present on bottom of cup

6 SAUCERS 6x6" dull and use marks

6 SALAD? 6.5x6.5" plates. These are in used condition light scuffing dulling and knife marks if you hold to side, some minor blemishes on edges of some but super hard to find


6 dinner plates, 10x10 these are in fair rough condition heavy scratches and 2" burn mark present on edge of one.

PRICED ON RARITY.
CONDITION OVERALL FROM 1-10, I would say 5 to 6


Cute, green and vintage!

THIS ITEM ORIGINATES FROM THE DEREK SCHULTZ COLLECTION: Derek was a dear friend who was one of the nation's largest melmac dish collectors. Derek had toured the Boontonwas factory, talked to Joan Luntz who was the designer of Brookpark, and befriended BA Wellman who was featured in Ann Kerr's Russel Wright books. Derek did much studying on melmac in his day. His hopes were to collect examples to someday write a book. He had 120,000 pieces some of which were rare and hard to find, and in 15 years of collecting I'd never seen or come across myself--most in gently used to great condition. Derek passed away last year, but his melmac lives on. I'm slowly cleaning, organizing, and selling his melmac collection box by box hoping it will find a way into your home and bring a smile on your face. I am sure Derek would have wanted it that way. Half proceeds of every sale go to his wonderful wife Renee. Melmac collecting can be a fun and inexpensive hobby. For great information on melmac resources, check out these free links:
