The Sigma Company was not a producer of gift wares. Sigma was more into importing and/or distributing gift wares.
Sigma was started in the late 1960’s and was based in New York. Sigma was actually the gift ware division of its parent company called Rockville International which was located in Garden City, New York. After about ten years, Rockville International became a part of the Towle International Company which was the leader in Sesame Street and Star Wars products. The Towle Company also made many of the Muppet products including the Kermit Frog cookie jar. During this time period Towle produced many other Cookie jars i.e. the Dalmatian Fireman Dog that stands next to a red fire plug! Although, the Sigma Company was short lived, many of its products are highly sought after due to their whimsical and/or unique theme.
Featured here is an example of a Chinese or Bok Choy cabbage table center piece designed to be not only functional, but to help make the table a more interesting and more appealing place to eat. You could put Celery stalks inside it, possibly put bread sticks inside or you could even float veggies in it.
No matter how you utilize it this vase-like veggie glassware will always be the highlight of any table. …John
