Thrill of the Hunt #67

March 26, 2018


Welcome to Thrill of the Hunt #67. Today I have just a few vintage finds to share. It's not that I don't have a lot of finds to talk about. It's just that time has been getting away from me lately, so I figured sharing a few vintage finds is better than sharing none at all -- am I right? So let's get started!   

The first finds are the ones I'm most excited about. I snagged them up immediately upon spying the bunch at Goodwill.

Isn't this set of four porcelain napkin rings just the cutest? They're vintage AND farmhouse. For me that's a winning combination!

The bunny is the epitome of all things spring and, of course, Easter, which is right around the corner.

And no farm would be complete without a duck.

Or a pig.

rooster porcelain napkin ring farmhouse tableware

Or the all-famous rooster.

Here's one animal that's actually doing its' job -- holding a French farmhouse napkin.

Based on the box, which was unfortunately not in the greatest of  shape (why does Goodwill always have to place tape and price tags in the most inconvenient places?) these were manufactured in Japan in 1984. I am so torn between keeping them and placing them in my Etsy shop. Time will tell. If you're interested, email me directly. You can find my email address on my "Contact" page. The link to it is at the top of this blog page.

I really wasn't too sure about this one, as I've never brought home a vintage ashtray before. But there was just something about the toile pastural scene and the gilding that caught my attention.

It doesn't even really look like an ashtray in these photos.

I found the artistic detail to be quite exquisite for something that isn't actually a plate.

When I was growing up my father was a smoker (he eventually quit), but we never had any ashtrays as fancy as this one!

The only thing I have that speaks to its origin is this 33/57 printed on the bottom of it. If anyone has seen this type of maker's mark before please let me know in the comments. Vintage toile gilded porcelain ashtray is AVAILABLE.

These are a new addition to my salt and pepper shaker collection. It never ceases to amaze me as to how many different varieties of shakers are out there. I mean, who comes up with the idea for scarecrow salt and pepper shakers?

A bit creepy, some might say.

But together I guess they're kind of cute.

Unfortunately this is what the bottoms look like. At least I can see 1) they were never used 2) who the distributor was 3) that they were made in China and 4) they have plastic stoppers. I'm guessing they were made in the 1980's but I don't think I'll ever know for sure. Scarecrow salt and pepper shaker set is AVAILABLE

What do you think of scarecrow salt and pepper shakers? Are they right up your alley or too kitschy for you? I think I'm on the fence.

Well, that's it until next time, friends!

Oh those napkin rings are perfect! I would've brought home the pretty ashtray-that-doesn't-look-like-an-ashtray, too ;)
