I have a few new items in the shop and I realized they are all made of aluminum. It started me to think about "new" materials of the 1950's that we take for granted today.
ALUMINUM made by Alcoa was an innovation, a light weight metal that could be molded and did not corrode or rust. Fantastic!
In the 50's Alcoa had a company called Kromex and they designed wonderful serving and entertainment products for the "housewives of America".
souvenir tray is made out of aluminum but not by the Kromex company.
The glorious 50's -they never die they just fade away.
All the items in the photos are currently listed or will be listed in the shop.
