Vintage Fascination No. 111

Welcome to another edition of Vintage Fascination.  So glad you stopped by today.

Since I’m closing my booth I’m not thrifting as much these days but…..

This charming tin is a basket style tin with handles and a Victorian scene on the top.  The graphics are beautiful in shades of pink with honeycomb covering the body of the tin.  The tin has no maker’s mark on it.

A True Value Hardware 1947 Dodge Canopy Delivery truck die-cast replica still in the original box is too good to pass up.  This ERTL 1/25 scale model truck collectible is only 18 years old issued in 1999 so not really vintage but with a lot of potential in vintage vignettes. It is a Limited Edition Metal Bank.  According to Wikipedia “The ERTL Company is an American toy company best known for its die-cast metal alloy collectible replicas (or scale models) of farm equipment and vehicles. The company based in Dyersville, Iowa, is home to the National Farm Toy Museum.”

Don’t you want to know what I plan to do with a dark blue speckled enamel ware roasting pan that is slightly rusty and crusty?  It is getting cleaned up then put to work on my deck as a planter this spring.  I can hardly wait.

This sweet little silver baby cup caught my eye.  This sweet little silver plated baby cup made by Oneida Community Silver is Tudor Plate.  This Oneida mark was in use from 1902 to 1935 (when Oneida changed its name to Oneida Ltd.).

I picked up this North Carolina souvenir tray for less than a dollar.  A few more of these state souvenir trays remain in my booth so they are coming home with me this week.  I am toying with the idea of hanging them on the wall in the stairwell to the basement.

  1. Those baby cups call out for me every time I go shopping! ♥

  2. I love that tin with the Victorian picture on top.

  3. Love those finds Sharon! Especially the old tin, the truck, & the tray. Interested to see how you use the baking pan too. Loving it so far with what you have displayed in it.

    I love planting in things like that Sharon. I have two or three vintage baby cups in the playhouse under the stairs. Like you said, they are just too cute to pass up! Love the graphics on the old tin and the truck is fun also. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  5. Sharon, I love the truck. It will do very well in a vignette. Baby cup is really nice. Sylvia D.
