Vintage Fascination No. 112

Thanks for joining me for this week’s vintage finds.

Thrifting is sooooo much fun, I just can’t help myself.

My fun find of the week is this Florida souvenir plate.  My daughter moved to Florida last summer so this is for her.  I think it is going to be adorable in her kitchen.

Cast iron receipt holders/spindles have been on my wanted list for a while.  Finding this set of two tickled me pink.  The larger spindle has a green ornate iron base.  It measures 6 1/2 inches in height with as 2 1/2 inch base marked “Made in USA”.  The smaller spindle is 5 1/4 inches tall with a bronze color base.

 I often pick up orphan creamers and sugar bowls when they are pretty and inexpensive.  My orphans are perfect receptacles for little bouquets, small house plants, pin cushions, candy dishes, etc.  All of which make adorable little gifts.  When I saw this orphan sugar bowl by Diana China Company of Germany.   Marked Registered US Pat., Rosalind with a small 20 in gold paint near the bottom rim.

This pretty creamer by Pope-Bosser China was very inexpensive so no way I could pass it up.   Marked “Made in USA” Clementine 1126 based on information I read on Ruby Lane my creamer is from the late 1920’s through the early 1930’s.

I love this vintage milk glass Jergen’s Lotion pump bottle.  It is decorated with delicate pink roses and gold stems.  It is a charming piece with a gold pump top.

Thanks for joining me today.

  1. Great finds, Sharon! I especially love that pretty creamer and the spindles!

    I’m a sucker for these, too! Just picked up a vintage creamer myself this week at Goodwill. I am attracted to the florals as well. So pretty! xoKathleen

  3. Hello! What’s the green item with the receipt holders? Is that another type of receipt holder? I received one of the milk glass Jergen’s lotion bottles as a Christmas gift back in the 60’s. I loved it and I was heartbroken when I dropped it and it broke into a thousand pieces!

  4. LOVE that floral frog! I too, also have a thing for receipt holders. I love the ones that hang on walls.

  5. Love the receipt holders, frog, & sugar bowl! Lovely finds this time Sharon! Could you put some share buttons on your posts?

  6. I just picked up an almost identical receipt holder at a thrift shop the other day. I had no idea what it was until the shop volunteer enlightened me.

    What nice finds and what a great idea to make arrangements in the china items! Blessings, Janet

  8. Very nice finds! I have a similar plate to that Florida one, but on mine the central design is in color and the gold-patterned edge is plain, not ruffly-looking. Your find is so pretty. I’m sure your daughter will love displaying it in her kitchen.

  9. Love your creamers and sugar bowls. I am always looking for these too and teapots and tea cups or other odd things to put plants in. My problem is the plants always start dying or get too wild and lay down. Could you tell me how you plant yours? I put a few pebbles in the bottom for drainage, then potting soil. I water once a week or if the container is small I check it for dryness and water more often . But they never stay pretty looking like the ones you show in your picture. Any help would be appreciated.

    • Thanks. Our methods are the same. The two in the photo both sit on my kitchen counter which gets a good bit of indirect sunlight. The fern is looking a bit skimpy to me so I;m going to start watering it a bit more.

    The plate is perfect for your daughter. Love the pretty edge! The spindles are great. Would love to run across some myself. I too pick up pretty sugar and creamers. Just can’t resist! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
