Vintage Mid Century Modern Dorothy Thorpe Chip and Dip Bowl Madmen Style
Mid Century Modern Dorothy Thorpe Chip and Dip Bowl Madmen Style
Wide-banded silver trimmed glassware with large salad bowl or chip bowl and a smaller dip or topping bowl. Dorothy Thorpe was a designer in Los Angles in the mid century. She is perhaps best known for her wide silver band glassware "Allegro" that was featured on the popular TV show Madmen.
WHAT YOU GET:
The large bowl Height- 6" 10 3/4" in diameter across rim
The small bowl Height- 2.75
Rim diameter 5"
Very good condition, little wear to the silvering. Two little divots are located on the rim where the dip bowl holder rested.
This was originally a 3 piece set: A large chip bowl, a smaller dip bowl and a toothpick glass all secured with a curved lucite holder. I don't have the holder or the toothpick glass, unfortunately. The two bowls alone are really cool serving pieces, though. The large bowl can be used as a salad bowl. There are some minor surface scratches on the silver from use over the decades. The glass looks great.
