Gold fleck countertop

Wondering if anyone knows of a source for the gold flecked countertops that were used in the 50's?

Thanks

Ken

Ken,
The "other" list had a links page to all kinds of neat stuff from the 50's yesterday.
Maybe you can find it in the archives.

Here it is Ken -
For those vintage trailer enthusiasts looking to accessorize "true" to the
age of their trailer, check out the "hot links" page on
http://www.atomic-ranch.com/hotlink.html

Lots of mid-century modern, right up to 1970's (mainly intended for home
interior decor, but some good stuff for Airstreams, too)

I am not associated with this website, or any of the links. Just an
enthusiast and recovering pack rat.

Some really cool stuff. I've been looking for vintage lamp shade material.

Your local building center may actually be able to obtain a current product that is virtually identical. I just purchased some laminate for one of my rental properties, and the current samples from the home center had a near perfect match for the 1957 white with gold fleck counters found in my rental cottage.
