Fabulous Vintage Finds

I love textiles and I have a bit of a penchant for pitchers, bottles and boxes. On my most recent excursion in thrifting I discovered some awesome finds.

  • A china bowl marked Prussia ( one of the best China makers ever)
  • A silver ptcher from Roger's Silver Company
  • A large  milky whilte ceramic pitcher
  • A small white ceramic pitcher
  • A white porcelain cooking pot, in no chip, perfect condition
  • And a gorgeous piece of Battenburg lace 


 The silver pitcher needed some polishing, but that is an easy job, and so worth doing  to bring out the natural shine.  I didn't completely shine and polish the feet and the handle, 
because I do like a tiny bit of
the tarnished look

  
Gorgeous isn't it?

And I love the porcelain cooking pot!



And I can't begin to tell you how much fun I had with the white pitchers and the battenburg lace.









So these are the goodies I found the other day at the thrift shop! Not a bad hit.
Have you found anything good lately?

Darling finds...especially the silver pitcher...I find polishing silver soothing but people seem to want to get rid of it nowadays which is good for us! olive♥

Hope you are having a great holiday weekend! The pitcher is my favorite too.

Great finds. You can't go wrong with a silver pitcher. Lately I have been leaving tarnished. I am sort of liking the patina of it.

I love pitchers. I think three in one day is quite a haul. I particularly like the short squaty white one.

Hi Eileen, so glad you linked up with the first VIF, love that painted china bowl from Prussia, just absolutely gorgeous! You have some great finds there. I'm a big fan of silver, and you're right, just a hint of tarnish is good!
Hope to see you next week.
xo,
Debra
