I love the old glass flower beads. And that orange! It certainly would have made a statement years ago. Still looks good, even today.
Does this remind you of anything familiar? If you said the Red Rose Tea figures by Wade, that's what I thought too. It is about three times the size though. No markings and just a number on the back. I really like the glaze and how it pooled in the deeper places.
More swans. Not sure what the appeal is but they are lovely. The little copper lustre jug is actually broken and held together inside with electrical tape. I'm sure I can find the right adhesive to fix it up right.
Besides the worn red paint on the ribbon this sweetie is in great condition. I wonder why the ribbon was painted afterward and not fired like the rest of the piece. Perhaps such a deep red was hard to achieve back then. Who wouldn't like kittens in a basket?
These great socks and little antique doll shoe were an on-line purchase. With the cost of antique doll shoes, one good shoe on a doll is better than none.
These were from a yard sale a couple weeks ago. They are Limoges from France and were just too lovely to leave behind. One serving bowl and two plates. Stunning.
I don't go to yard sales much anymore. I certainly do not need anything, although it is fun to go poking about and see what treasures you can unearth. Only one per weekend, if that, so I choose very carefully.
So, what fun things have you found lately?
