I'm so in love with this week's collection of thrifted vintage finds, yet when I assembled them all to be photographed, it occured to me that it's a really quirktastic mess of stuff. Colorful and a little kitschy, to say the least!
First up, this orange ball pitcher:
I'm not sure of the maker, but I love the reddish orange color. It looks like Fiesta's original red, but I I don't think it's a Fiesta shape. Could be Hall, Bauer, etc. -- clearly I need to research it.
I also found this cheery turquoise blue decanter. The glass is super delicate.
I love these vintage cocktail shakers, and I especially liked the bright colors and fruit motifs on this one, which is by Federal Glass.
A milk glass swung vase. These just scream 60s to me. This one has the look and feel of Fenton glass, but again, I need to research it more to verify.
I FREAKED OUT over this tray. It's so weird...it's in the style of a tradtional toll tray, but it has a Chinoiserie motif that is...wait for it...paint by number!!! Seriously...so much vintage goodness in one piece. I bought it as a local antique mall for a steal, and while I need to list it in the shop, every time I get it out I just stare it it, transfixed. :)
Next, I found this elegant lacquerware jewelry box.
It's by Otagiri Japan, from the "Sand Dollar" collection. Here's a shot of the cool graphic that adorns the top:
I bought this piece thinking about the upcoming holidays. Isn't it cute? I'm sure it originally had peach lustre cups to match, but I think it would be cute with milk glass punch cups as well.
I was on my way out of a local Goodwill when I spotted these retro lamps out of the corner of my eye. I'll probably have them rewired, but otherwise they're in awesome condition.
This crock is charming in a shabby kind of way. It weighs about 10 lbs, so it would be perfect for holding kitchen utensils without tipping over. It looks like a Ransburg piece, doesn't it?
And finally, to round out the quirky finds, this white horsehead pen holder. I mean, have you ever??? It has some damage in the form of chips on its ears, so I put it back and walked away twice before I decided to bring it home with me. For $2, he'll find a new home glamming up my personal desk.
How did you do with your own thrifting this week, friends? Any finds, quirky or otherwise?
