Hot Pot Pads Mats Vintage by Ballonoff

This is a set of three matching hot mats made in the USA by Ballonoff Home Products of Cleveland, Ohio. They are metal tops affixed to insulated paper backing.

Two of these mats measure 6 x 8 inches and are decorated with tiny roses inside a pink hearts and grey motif border on a cream or ivory colored background. The third mat measures 10 x 7 inches and coordinates with the two smaller mats in the set with its solid cream or ivory color.

These vintage mats were cared for and in very good vintage condition. The smaller mats show little wear. The larger mat was used more and shows a few small dents, a few slight discoloration spots, and a few light scratches in the metal surface. There are no chips to the surfaces, nasty spills on the paper backings, nor are they warped. Overall, they are very nice for their age.

Invite a little campy into your kitchen, or use them as a fun gift for someone who likes mid-20th century vintage kitchen things -- they are that nice.
