Junkin' Finds May 2016

Since our house is slowly being put back together from the new floors and the continued plans to move on to the kitchen, I have been only junkin' here and there. 
Here is a sampling of what I found in May 2016.

My steal of the month, 4 gorgeous plates I originally bought to resell because they were perfect. Set of 4 for $5.99. When I got them home they are two shades darker than the bedroom walls...so they are a keeper at this point.

I totally loved all the raised white pattern on these "Rhapsody" luncheon plates by George Jones & Sons, England. The mark on the back suggests these pieces were made sometime in-between 1891-1921. The mark, which is in black, includes "England" not "Made in England" which was a requirement in 1921. They were made in plain white, black background, yellow, and green. I really couldn't find any made in blue???

Lovely ironstone transfer ware pitcher. Medium size about 8-9" in the Aesthetic  style popular at the turn of the the 19th century.


oldnewgreenredo

There were at least three USA "Ironstone" makers using this Royal Ironstone china and Warranted marking. One was the Weheeling Pottery of West Virginia circa 1880-1886, while another was Steubenville in Ohio, around 1900 and another the East End Pottery co in East Liverpool, Ohio using the mark from 1894 to 1907. These bedroom wares were mass produced and sold through catalogs also.


Cache pot with lid, tiniest ding on the inside of the rim...but a lovely piece, no mark, but very close to the same style as the pitcher. I paid less than $5 for each piece. There was a sale at the thrift store that day.

Porcelain dish with 'moriage' applied decoration marked Japan--stylistically would figure this for the 1930-40s but post 1921 from the 'Japan' mark. This piece has design elements of Nippon but should not be confused with that. I paid a pittance for this piece in a thrift store.

This is an unusually shaped porcelain plate...with some gold application over the brown tone transfer design with gilding. The mark is half missing and is unclear...a little sleuthing and this is Victoria pattern probably by Hanley circa 1890-1900. Just was a very pretty dish I paid 99 cents for, will keep maybe.

oldnewgreenredo

Part of the mark is missing, the pattern is Victoria and England



oldnewgreenredo

 A bag of game pieces for 25 cents, a soap dish, marked Germany in starburst oval, and one of my favorites, a bowl with a chip---Indian Tree---which I will use for mosaics.

Funky chrome tray---going to be used for a bird feeder, 99cents on top of a rattan storage/picnic basket, I plan to use in the craft room for $3.99.


oldnewgreenredo

This is a magazine rack for on the wall, elaborately cutout and engraved wood and the original finish. Probably circa 1880-90. I think it will look adorable painted and used for towels. This piece was $6.00

oldnewgreenredo

More storage pieces---I'm planning a redo of the craft room (hellhole) in the basement and have been collecting vintage storage anything to utilize. Basket was $6.00 and in primo condition, tins are always under $1.00.

oldnewgreenredo

Grandma's pretend stash continues to grow---a cute purse for the grand with a bamboo handle, 99cents. She loves purses and is getting quite a collection at Grandma's house for dress-up. The little bird dish I have had for awhile, has a ding in it, but the Grand thinks it's special.

oldnewgreenredo

Can't help but pick up vintage Barbie anything in good condition. The grand used this to pack up Grandmas' Barbie and Ken for a trip to see Great-grandma in Wisconsin. It worked like a charm and the new picture on the front was  a hit.

oldnewgreenredo

Circa 2002 Barbie case...inside needed nothing to be functional, held three dolls and their entire weekends wardrobe. Perfect for a 4 hour car ride.

oldnewgreenredo

Not my style---but in such good condition I couldn't pass it up---a master jewelry box circa 1950-60's for $5.00 with some jewelry in it. I see a redo in it's future---and will probably use this for storage and for a show---if I every do one again.


oldnewgreenredo

I know this isn't vintage...but the hysterical photo on both sides is a STITCH, fully dressed/suits English sunbathers from the 1940-50's. And it is such a great purse with leather handles,  its labeled inside and out Anya Hindmarch, London. I paid $3.00, similar bags on secondary markets are listed for $150-$450 dollars...who knew? Apparently Anya is hot stuff in the 'Label' market. I may have to consider a resell on this item.



oldnewgreenredo

Two sweet pins, the enameled bird $4.00 and the black white cloisonné at $1.00


oldnewgreenredo

Not the right I picked up two lengths of unused rayon/barkcloth lightweight in this charming Oriental print on a natural background. I can't help but think of Anna and the King of Siam first a book, play and then the musical, King and I.  the two pieces are perfect---$3.00 each.



oldnewgreenredo

The lace piece is the finest of linen with such beautiful work done in open cutouts. This is a squared piece perfect for a tea table. It will have to be ironed, but I think I can find my board. $2.00.


I really love the corners.

oldnewgreenredo

And last 5 assorted larger than placemat sized crocheted pieces, in the rayon silky thread---in ivory, white and ecru. These were all perfect and unstained, an $.25 cents each.

So tucked away for projects-- these are my finds for May---Happy hunting! And as always, I appreciate your comments and questions.

  1. What a haul! My personal favorite is the bag with fully clothed couple on the beach. The jewelry box is fabulous also. I want to see the magazine rack reborn with new paint and towels in it.

  2. This is such an excellent post. I like the way you give details about each piece you found. I've learned a lot. Love the blue plates. You should definitely keep those! And the bag - what a hoot! If you can sell it on the market for a great price, then I would say you should. Great finds!

    1. My mom had me reading her antique magazines at 14, and attending auctions. Now, with the internet, if You have any inkling of what you had and do a good description---you can find it on the internet. Thanks for the comments, and yes the bag---dang is a kitchen cupboard for our remodel. We will see, I used it once and it caused so much 'happiness' and laughter, I won't be sorry if it doesn't sell. Thanks, sandi

  3. You know, that jewelry box isn't my style either but I would have snatched it up in a minute and collaged all over it because I really need a jewelry box big enough to hold the jewelry. Oh, that it were diamonds and pearls but mostly it is just little things I like -- but a lot of little!

    I just wanted to thank you for stopping by The Marmelade Gypsy and leaving such a kind comment on my blog. It is a pleasure to meet you!
