Come on and join me for some super vintage finds.
Unfortunately, this week almost everything I bought is a keeper at least for now.
I was checking out at one of my favorite thrift stores when I spied an ivory colored bracelet and asked the clerk to see it. When she handed it to me she said it was ninety-five cents. I knew at that moment it was going home with me. The question remains “Is it Bakelite?” If it is, I scored big time but if not that’s OK too because I love it.
I wore it a few days ago and received several compliments. Everyone loves the diamond pattern on the bracelet.
I found two blue and white English cups. Each side of the cup shows a different scene from 1792. One side shows Stratford-on-Avon and the opposite side shows Penhurst Kentin.
Since these two cups did not have saucers I tried one of the cups with a Blue Willow saucer. I like them together.
These two tiny Limoges plates are most likely butter pats. They are beautifully painted. The trademark reads Porcelaine Limoges Made in France. I’m keeping one the other is going to the antique mall.
All the milk glass in my collection is white at least it was until the other day when I found a Fostoria Winburn Peach/Pink handled nappy. Fostoria made this pattern between 1958 and 1962. It’s a keeper
When I started the deck redo one thing I wanted was a vintage bottle opener, one that could be attached to a deck post. Well this Starr Coca Cola bottle opener I found really fits the bill. Can’t wait to put it into use.
You don’t find a lot of pewter these days but this rustic Wilton pewter creamer and open sugar bowl caught my eye. It is from the Wilton Armetale Plough Tavern collection introduced in the 1960’s but is now discontinued. On the photo at the end of this post you can see three marks stamped on the side of the creamer – the Wilton trademark, USA, and one other mark that I cannot decipher. If anyone knows what it is, please let me know. The marks are on the side of the open sugar bowl too.
Anyone who loves milk glass as much as I do would be drawn to this vintage jar. It has a beautiful raised daisy pattern around the neck of the jar. I purchased it not knowing how old it was or what it originally held. When I found the answer the orange color of the top made perfect sense. It is a collectible jar from the 1970’s that held TANG, the instant orange drink mix.
