Thrill of the Hunt #53:Vintage China Galore with Our Hopeful Home

Well, I guess the name of this post gives you a hint as to what it's about: vintage china. It truly amazes me how much lovely, vintage china is out there for the thrifting each and every week. So without further ado, here are some of my recent thrifty favorites for you to enjoy.

Lefton china gold wheat pattern creamer 1950's


First up is a lovely gold-embellished Lefton China Gold Wheat patterned creamer.

It's from the 1950's. I love the detail, especially around the fluted top.

And the gold embellishment is oh-so-pretty!

"Lefton China Hand Painted 20183" is its maker's mark. These pieces were made in Japan in the 1940's, I think through 1952. While I don't have the sugar bowl, I do think this piece will be of value to someone looking to round out their collection.

This ironstone fluted platter is one of those special finds for me.  I collect ironstone, and I hope to be able to use some of the pieces I've collected for a plate wall once our dining room renovation is completed.

I wish I could read what was on the back of it. I'm ok with not knowing since I'm keeping it for myself. I'd be more concerned with the history if I were trying to sell it. I paid $1.99 for it at Goodwill.

Platter number two is just a simple, small, hotelware platter.

It does, however, have a very clear maker's mark on the bottom of it. "Buffalo China USA 205."

Oh yes, and it cost me 99 cents at my local Goodwill. And it's exactly what I want to add to that plate wall I told you about. Keeper!

vintage Made in England white china creamer

This one's the real mystery.

It's an incredibly lovely white porcelain creamer with beautiful detail. Just look at that handle.

But all it says on the bottom is "Made In England." I'm happy it was made in England, but wish I knew more about it. Anyone have any ideas about the origins of this one? I'd love to hear your ideas!

Well, that's it for today, friends!

I hope you enjoyed reading Thrill of the Hunt #53!

I have a set of ironstone probably from the 50s or 60s and my creamer looks similar to yours - its Johnson Brothers

Love the creamer and I have a platter just like the first one you shared ;)

With the swirl design on the Lefton piece, I wonder why it was necessary to add the gold design. The last one showed the elegance of the swirl without any added design, and it looks so elegant. I think the first one could have gone without the extra design, and instead of feeling a little gaudy, it could have looked elegant, too. Oh, well...
