My Vintage FindsUnfortunately it was a very slow day at the car boot sales and charity shops today. But at least it gave me time to photograph and blog about my finds from last weekend.
I love, Love, LOVE this cruet set and adore the gorgeous design on the salt and pepper shakers. It also has a cool swirly indentation on all the pieces, including the bottom 'plate'. It is marked with the number 2827 but no name so I'm still trying to find out more about it. Any ideas?
If you follow me on twitter, you may have heard me declare that I had also fallen in love with some little pyrex cups. They are ADORABLE. A little research and I found out they are referred to as 'custard cups'. The lady I bought them from (at an absolute BARGAIN, I must say) suggested using them for mini souffles. Now I love that idea but in reality I can't see it happening. What else can I use them for, I wonder?My last find is this tin egg. I don't think it was made in 1894 but think it may commemorate a 50th anniversary or something. I'm not really sure though, because it's in EXTREMELY good condition. The seller told me it was her sister's and at least 50 years old but regardless, I thought it was lovely. It has a fantastic pattern inside as well.
I'm off to a large car boot sale tomorrow and hope to come home laden with treasures. Stay posted.
