Welcome to a holiday edition of Vintage Fascination.
Don’t you love long holiday weekends? I think I may do some antiquing tomorrow before my Fourth of July cookout with family. Here is this weeks vintage finds.
The Coleman jug is a great 70’s blue water jug with spigot. It is metal on top with plastic opening with a lid. Originally a plastic cup was inside the top but was lost somewhere along the way. A red Coleman label is on the blue metal directly above the spigot. The bottom and part of the way up the side is white thermal plastic. Made in the USA by The Coleman Co. Inc.,9-Wichita Kansas is on the bottom of the water jug.
You know I can never pass up a nice basket and this one has a blue print liner. My thought is to pick one of the colors in the liner and dry brush that color on basket. Once the makeover is complete then its off to the booth.
I’ve been looking for some brass or metal hose nozzles for a while and I almost missed these. They were inside a metal basket that I picked up. Left the basket but bought both hose nozzles.
My favorite find of the week is a set of camping/picnicking dishes. It is twelve piece service for four. It was sitting in a beat up box almost under the counter in a favorite thrift store. The dishes were still wrapped in paper.
As I dug through the box to see if everything was there I realized there was a whole set of matching silverware with red handles. The silverware is nicely wrapped in a brown cloth cover with tie and the Coleman trademark on the front (still in their plastic sleeves).
I’m not sure these are vintage but I can’t find any like them on-line so they are not now available. Score.
This pretty embroidered piece was in a drawer I cleaned out the other day. I’ve had it for a while but don’t remember where or exactly when I found it.
The needle work on it is exquisite.
