Description 1971 King Seeley Thermos trio in avocado green, orange and yellow. Thermos has had the hottest products since 1904. Invented in 1892 by Sir James Dewar, a scientist at Oxford University, the vacuum flask was not manufactured for commercial use until 1904, when two German glass blowers formed Thermos GmbH. They held a contest to name the vacuum flask and a resident of Munich submitted 'Thermos', which came from the Greek word 'Therme' meaning 'heat'.I love vintage thermos bottles. This is my tribute to them. Design has a built in black border.Design copyright Donna Mibus. All rights reserved. No part of my artwork can be copied or used without permission.

Donna Mibus, Dallas Member Since September 2013 Artist Statement Thank you for visiting! I am a Christian, wife, mother, grandma, dog mom, and artist. The artist part came when I turned 50 and took up painting. When I was growing up in the 60s, I greatly enjoyed looking through the Sears and Montgomery Ward catalogs at all the modern furniture and accessories. I loved it all! I include all those same mid century modern items in my room scenes because I still love them. I'm blessed to have had my art work featured in numerous magazines. I've also been featured in many mid century modern blogs. I very much hope my work makes you happy! All my designs are protected by Copyright Laws. This includes my black cats.
