Friday Show and Tell – Additions for Several Collections

Show and Tell
Show and Tell Friday is hosted by Kelli at There is No Place Like Home

My visit to the Lancaster Marketplace with my three sisters and niece on Sunday September 21 was wonderful. I found things for several of my collections or sets:

Brown Transfer Ware
2 dinner plates in the Royal China Company’s "Wellesley" pattern. $1.00. I now have 8 dinner plates.


Brown Fostoria Goblets
6 Fostoria "Virginia" goblets for $5.00 the set. The four I had before were bought new for $39.99. Now I have 10.

Souvenir Spoons [of places I've visited]
3 silver plated spoons for $1.00 each – London/ England/ Canada

Salt and Pepper Shakers
A tiny individual silver plated set, $1.00 – Made in Occupied Japan

Blue and White Souvenir Plates [of places I've visited]
Six-inch plate "Venice" by Ridgway - Made in England $1.00 . I have a similar plate for Rome.

Here it is along on the wall in the guest bath with two other plates. Another wall displays eight more plates from the collection.

Teapot collection
A small white luster ware teapot with black trim. From the FREE box at one dealer. The knob of the lid is chipped, but I will fix that with some black color.

Nativity Scenes Collection
Three Wise Men and two trees from the Enesco Foundations Nativity by Karen Hahn. These are new pieces from a gift shop in the flea market. I got them at $1.00 a piece =$5.00 total.

Milk Glass Collection
Three lidded and footed vessels (the items have not been cleaned yet.)

One large oval dish, an Avon grape bottle, and a hobnail container with fluted edge.

I plan to do separate posts on the milk glass additions and on the other collections.

To see more interesting personal treasures, visit Kelli for a list of participating posts.

Hi Carrie,

Lovely lovely treasures!!! I especially like the brown transferware. I am also drawn to geometric designs! :)

Kathy said...

You found some really nice things, Carrie. I got some Fostoria goblets just like yours, only green, for a wedding gift. When I changed colors I gave them to my mother. Then she gave them to my daughter at her bridal shower. I love that we all three used and enjoyed the goblets.

What great stuff!! I think I like the milk glass best for personal reasons...reminds me of my mother.

My show n tell is Halloween, solar lights since most all my visitors have been asking for some of my halloween decorations I've been setting up...and a set of kitchen linens that match my blog's header that I found! Come on by if you can find time...Happy Friday!

Chez Nous said...

Great finds! I love how you've managed to add to your plate and glass sets this way. My favorite piece is the blue and white plates; it looks lovely with your others.

Alice said...

Such great finds! For a long time I didn't like milk glass. I think it was too recent for me to find it interesting. But now as I'm getting older, my tastes have changed and I love it.

JanMary said...

What a treasure trove of items you found!

Thanks for sharing.

Carrie said...

Kathy,
How nice that the goblets have been used by three generations.

I also have 8 of the same goblets in blue to go with my blue and white dishes.

Carla said...

SCORE! Don't you love finding things to increase what you already have?

Gosh, Carrie, you totally cleaned up! What great little collections, just as you showcase them there.

I like that you have transferware plates in a unified color palette but intentionally depicting different scenes.
