What were my vintage finds for this week?
A vintage oval pheasant platter marked "made in England for Brooks Brother Est 1818". I think this was a premium for Brooks Brothers clothing. I thought it would work for my fall decorating with pheasants and burgundy edging. Not cheap $15 at the consignment shop.
Four dinner plates marked "American Heritage Millennium Collection" Churchill, Made in England. Great US landmarks in cobalt blue on yellow edging. $3 for four plates with no damage. They will mingle nicely with my Churchill Blue Willow!
Enesco Prayer Lady toothpick holder. What makes this extra special is that I just found the pink prayer lady napkin holder earlier this summer. $1 at the consignment shop, no damage.
If you follow my blog you know that I found two wind-up, vintage clocks this summer, and I was looking to make it a collection with three. This purchase for $11, a gold tone, Elgin, West Germany. I searched this clock on the internet and couldn't find it. Not sure if it was really rare or what. But look at the top! Is something missing?
I purchased this thermos for fall vignettes. Brown and orange. $3, vintage 1970's Thermos!
If you follow my blog regularly, you know I collect small, vintage bibles and religious books. This little book was calling out my name, and a fall colored book, "Prayers for Girls" by Elisabeth Robinson Scovil, Printed 1957 Thomas Nelson and Sons, copyright 1927. $2.
$3 for three Franklin W Dixon, Hardy Boys' mysteries. 1938 Dunlap and Grosset!
And lastly, "Kennedy" by Theodore C. Sorensen. First Edition, 1965. $1. I have a burgeoning collection of presidential collectibles! I will show you soon!
Next week, some autumn vignettes coming!
