I have a small collection and it is very eclectic. In general, I'll pick up a piece if the pattern appeals to me, and it costs less than $10. And really, under $5 is preferable. I don't look for any particular pattern or maker, however, as you can see, florals really appeal to me. (Actually, that is not entirely true. I have a small collection of mixed vintage Bauer pottery and Fiestaware, but I'll save those for another post on another day.)
Yesterday I decided to stop by the local thrift shop to see if anything new had come in, and I found the beautiful plate above. It is a gorgeous lusterware. The plate is about 13" wide. And, it was a steal at $2.99! It was marked "Germany, Lena Jensen" so I figured it would be easy to get online and learn a little more about the piece.
Here are a few more favorites of mine:
Two beautiful platters which are in my china hutch.
Finally, I thought I would share a tiny little ceramic lidded container that I adore. I especially like the gold handle.
Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday, and Time Travel Thursday!
