My Gold Castle Lady Jar/Box

July 14, 2012
Yesterday I bought a beauty at the consignment shop! She wasn't especially cheap at $18, but she was in perfect condition.

You know I have a love of lady head vases, lady portraits, lady portrait plates, and lady figurines, and also a love of vanity jars and powder tins. No wonder I love her!

I love her blue dress in my bathroom with the coral tiles. Look at her little feet poking out from under her skirt!

Clasping her pearls!

A very 1940's hairdo.

What's not to love?

Making her home on my bathroom vanity.

Yup, she's a jar!

She's right beside my silver topped vanity jar that I posted about in Tabletop Treasures. Also an ornate silver plate hand mirror.

Other vanity jars in my collection.

A vintage oil lamp and curling iron (that she may have used in the 1940's), and a photo of one of my daughters complete the vignette.

Lovely Gold Castle Lady!

  2. Wow! She's something I've never seen the likes of....very pretty. I was never into ceramics or china but as I age I am gaining an appreciation for them especially the vintage ones. And I love color! She's really precious and looks great in your "vignette".

  3. She is so sweet! I just love that color of blue up against your coral tiles, too!

  4. I collect dresser jars too and I love your collection. Your little lady is stunning!

  5. Such a pretty addition! Your collection of vanity jars is fabulous.
