I was excited to find four dinner plates in the Royal China "Star Glow" pattern from the early 60s. I love the starburst design--there is nothing more retro than a good starburst!--and the simple, elegant cream and gold colors.
To go with them, I found five cool vintage tumblers with gold striped rims and a textured speckly frost around the bases, all in pristine condition:
What a pretty table setting these plates and glasses would make, especially for the holidays!
Surely you spotted the cute brass horse in the photos above; here he is up close:
Speaking of figurines, I was also excited to find this ivory colored owl made by Haeger Pottery:
In this shot, you can see a few more of my ivory and gold themed finds: a small, perfect lotus bowl; a pretty solid brass tobacco leaf dish from the 1960s; and a cool milk glass apothecary jar from Belgium, in perfect condition and sporting its original, bulbous lid. I was excited by all of these finds!
My favorite score by far, though, was this fabulous gold toned wooden peacock statue:
I hope everyone else had a successful week with lots of great finds! I keep expecting my zeal for thrifting/flea marketing/estate saling to wane as the weather turns away from summer towards fall, but it hasn't happened so far!
