Vintage Fascination No. 119

Hello, I’m glad you are here today.

Here are a few vintage finds from last week.

 When I first saw this bowl I thought it was a child’s art project but it had a McCoy trademark on the bottom.  It is an extremely rustic bowl.  It is a vintage Canyon Mesa serving bowl.  It is 8 inches wide and about 3 inches deep.

 McCoy produced dinnerware from 1962 until 1985.  Production of the Canyon Mesa dinnerware began in 1977.  At one time dinnerware comprised 60% of McCoy’s kitchenware line.

Who could pass up this cute little Ball Ideal jar?

 The markings include “Wire Slide” and “Pat D July 14, 1908”.  It still has the little glass jar top that fits under the wire slide.

This vintage pottery flower vase is known as a five-finger, fan or trumpet vase.  My vase has a simple dark blue design painted on grayish pottery.  It doesn’t have any markings on the bottom but it reminds me of vases I saw for sale in Williamsburg many years ago.  Popular during the 18th century, finger vases create beautiful, balanced arrangements.

Accidentally, I started a salt and pepper shaker collection.  I’m not sure when it started I just started buying cute ones.  Then I started actively looking for vintage sets like this set of adorable little English cottages.  I sold a few sets in my booth before this accidental collection started and now I wish they had been keepers.

These kissing dogs immediately come to mind.  They sold the same day I put them in the booth.

I always gravitate to blues.  So when I saw this pretty blue creamer and sugar, I just had to get it.  This set is vintage Federal Glass in the Madrid pattern.  The creamer and sugar set is from the 1930’s.

Thank you for joining me today as I get ready to head to Florida for a visit with my daughter.
