FTT Week 69 Vintage Finds

Can you believe that it is February already?  I hope your week is going well and that you have a wonderful weekend.

FTT Wk 69 Title

It’s Friday so let me show you what I found while out and about this week.

Hand Painted C. Henry

I’ve mentioned before that pretty teacups and saucers don’t stay in my booth long.  This set doesn’t have a trademark but it is beautifully hand painted.  It has an artist signature near the rim C. Henry. (see it in the title photo)

Haviland Limoges France

A second teacup is Theodore Haviland, Limoges, France.  It is lovely in pinks and greens but the saucer is not original.  

Roses by C. Henry

It was hand painted by C. Henry (see above) to match the Haviland teacup.  A very creative C. Henry took a orphaned teacup and make it into a set again.  I would love to know more of the story of C. Henry.

Van Bergh Silverplate

Even though these two pieces had different prices and not priced as a set, the two together were quite reasonable (less than $4).  Made by Van Bergh Silver Plate Company in Rochester New York this set is quadruple plate and numbered 256.  The Van Bergh Silver Plate Company founded in 1892 by brothers Fredrick W. and Maurice H. Van Bergh incorporated as the Van Bergh Silver Plate Company Inc. in 1925.  In 1926 Oneida Community Limited absorbed Van Bergh and moved the operation from Rochester to Oneida New York.  I do plan to shine them up a bit since they are so terribly tarnished.

Eagle Key Holder

Do you remember a brass eagle decorating a lot of wooden home decor in the 60’s.  This key hanger with a cork-board is a prime example.  It is due a makeover then off to the booth it goes.

Peach Lustre Bowl

This is the first time I’ve ever found a piece of Fire King Peach Lustre carnival glass at a thrift store.  Ticked pink, I strolled up to the register and paid a whole 96 cents for it.  It is a swirl pattern serving bowl with the most lovely iridescent glow. The bottom stamp is Anchor Hocking Fire-King, Oven-Proof, Made in USA which is the stamp used in mid-late 1970’s.

Le Serveur

This Gemco clear plastic condiment server with three white glass bowls has the vegetable design matching the Spice O’ Life Corning Ware collection from the 1970’s. 

Le Serveur 2

Each dish has a clear plastic lid with slot for spoon.  The bowl holder operates as a Lazy Susan and turns on the base for serving convenience.  The bowls read “Le Serveur” which means the server in French.

Tin Chinese Checkers

This set of Chinese Checkers isn’t all that old but I bought it mostly for the tin game board.    I already have several other sets and plan to use as wall art at some point in the future. Trivia: Invented in Germany in 1892 Chinese Checkers is similar to an American game named Halma.

Don’t forget that the Vintage Charm party is open until 8:00 AM EST Monday, February 8th, so come join the vintage fun.

Always

FTT Week 67 – Vintage and Thrifty Finds

FTT Wk 67 Title1

The trend of finding as many thrifty finds as vintage ones continues.  So I am sharing both again this week.
