We all love that bluish-green color that adorns so many vintage items; but, I’m always torn between calling it aqua or turquoise. Perhaps one name is correct and the other is wrong or maybe they are synonymous?!? Oh, you call it robin’s egg blue? Well, whatever your preference, I found several items this weekend in “that color”!!!
This bowl took a little research because it isn’t marked. I finally discovered it in my Hazel-Atlas book. It is a 7” mixing bowl in the “Kitchen Utensils” pattern. Mine has an inverted scalloped design on the edge, others bowls in the same pattern has a rolled edge.
Federal Glass made this little 6”mixing bowl. It is marked with their “F in a shield” and is in the “Kitchen Aids” pattern.
I also found a Lustro-Ware scoop and a melamine butter dish and lid.
But my best find, by far, was this great Pantry Queen trash can. It stands 15-1/2” tall and the flip top works great. It even has its original plastic liner.

I need to tag the trash can before I take it to my booth, but I have one problem…..
Do I call it aqua or turquoise?
