Junkin' Finds May 2017



Hi, I hope everyone had a great weekend. We finally had some decent weather. 
In the spirit of OLD,NEW,GREEN, REDO..I thought I would share May's finds.

May-the month- was crappy weather-wise to do anything in Chicagoland this spring. I did go out at least once a week for retail/thrift therapy. I found a few things to share.

This Royal Kent salad plate the design is  ROK32, 
not a very picturesque pattern description for such a lovely plate.
It is heavy porcelain and has a rich gold banding.

I couldn't find a specific date on this, but, I will say within the last 25 years. Replacements had none available, so I'm guessing collectors that have these are holding on, lol. And these may have been companion pieces for gold rimmed dinnerware.

My heart went pity-pat, when i saw this gorgeous tile. 
Most often you find these tiles chipped. This one was perfect so I snagged it. 
Two windmills, I thought I hit the jackpot.

The mark is very faint on this---stamped Delft Blauw hand-painted, probably the artist, then something in Holland. I really don't care I just love these when they are in perfect condition --cheap. 
Like 99 cents.

Cute little mini tin, looks like a dollhouse.

Wonder where this will go---? Maybe to the DIY Barbie House?

A couple of unusual hand painted porcelain desert plates.

The colors a rich on these and the design is very fluid.

The center mark is known as "Cherry Blossom" made from the shape of five "M"'s and was subcontracted by the Nippon Toki Kasha Company (Noritake) to many (hundreds) of independent porcelain manufacturers who designed and made porcelain exports for the USA market. Many variations of this mark make it hard to pin down.  Style wise I date this from the early 1920's to the 1930's. They are in beautiful condition.

Very cool creamer---this is the perfect size for a half pint of cream.

DIY Vintage Chic

The lid has that mid century vibe.  I was anxious to find out more and the mark style is from 1935-40's. The gold edging is a bit worn, and there is a faint crack on the handle of the lid, and a chip on the bottom. None of this will really effect the use.

The mark is for TST Latona made by Taylor, Smith & Taylor. A division of Noritake, this was made by TST located in Chester, West Virginia. In operation from the early 1900's until 1982, TST produced all types of china for sale in five and dimes to fine department stores. 

You can see the tan/buff clay---typical of the Ohio valley coming through the white glaze dip. The design was then applied after the first/second firing. This is why an unusually shaped item might be available in multiple patterns.
It's a cute piece and I picked it up for a gift for a friend.

I had to pick up this child's porcelain teacup. Almost reminiscent of Moriage---it has gold outlining with the painting within the gold.

http://oldnewgreenredoblog.blogspot.com

It's perfect condition and is so dainty. Perfect for the grand's tea parties and only 50 cents.

Marked simply MADE IN JAPAN. You can go down the research 'Rabbit Hole' looking for this. 
I will go out on a limb and say this was pre WWII. Maybe it could be quite older.

This platter was an inexpensive buy---honestly $1.99 and it's perfect. I bought this platter for daily use. When we have impromptu family meals, sorta formal, but not, I use my mix and match blue and white-anything goes---dishes. And this platter was perfect.

Transferware has intricate designs and has been produced since the mid 1850's. 
This is the "Countryside" pattern. I love the detail and designs on this pattern, and have quite a few pieces over the years.

http://oldnewgreenredoblog.blogspot.com

While not antique this definitely qualifies as vintage. This pattern, "Countryside" was made between the years of 1966-68. I remember hemming and hawing on picking my everyday dishes for our wedding and this pattern was in the running. 

Enoch Wedgwood was a cousin of Josiah Wedgwood and they ran two separate companies. Originally in 1835 Enoch ---had Wedgwood & Co and then it  was renamed Enoch Wedgwood (Tunstall) Ltd in 1965. In 1980 it was taken over by Josiah Wedgwood & Sons, who renamed it Unicorn Pottery. So what was ---two separate Wedgwood companies actually did become one, sort of. 




Because these Spode transferware plates are reproductions, I never have a problem using them for everyday and they can be picked up for very little cost now.


All the information is on the back. I'm just glad, 
I haven't spent a small fortune
 on the Spode originals over the years.


This sweet little child's plate was so cheap---and it's perfect done in heavy weight ironstone.


A fun and informative article on the Salem China Co., is available on 

These divided plates go for very little, under $10.00, but I can remember using one at my parent's cottage for my boys and heated up---they were perfect for serving little ones and too heavy for them to pick up and throw. Plastic kid's ware used today aren't  my favorites.

Not a lot to show for a whole month---
I know I picked up lots of odd things that ended up in the Barbie posts too. 
Hope your picking and junkin' has been great.

    1. I spent a summer in Denmark when I was young. My dear maiden great aunts served every meal with linens and silver---in a lovely 400 year old cottage. The walls were filled with paintings and old photos--the stairs were dipping in the middle from worn away age, and the sidewalks were scrubbed every morning. I wore out three pairs of heels walking on cobblestones that summer, and caused lace curtains to move aside as I road a bicycle in bermuda shorts. I love the old world, art, and literature, and I so love your posts---thank you for visiting. I never throw anything away, but try and pass it to another loving home. Grins, Sandi

  5. hi, I loved your treasures; I love blue and white dishes, too. As a young married in the 70's, I shopped at JM Fields, a grocery store, all summer to get the stamps to collect my blue and white Staffordshire (Royal Mail). I still love it. I tried to subscribe to your post and got a page of words. Would you please add me: Kathy A., lastrose51@aol.com. I am an amatuer dealer with spaces at an antique multi-dealer shop and an antique place that just changed hands to flea market/crafters/antiques. I love inexpensive treasures and have done a few upcycling projects. Thanx.

  6. Great finds Sandi--love the English plate with the thatched roof cottage. Makes me think of Stratford-on-Avon and many of the houses there. I'm also partial to the sweet child's plate, too! Thanks for linking up your posts with us at Vintage Charm--
