Yesterday morning I was determined to stay home from Estate sales and get caught up on my listings for my Etsy stores. That didn’t last too long. I found a killer sale in Murfreesboro, Tennessee just down the road from us in Antioch. It sounded wonderful. So off we went. I was a little disappointed in their prices even at 30% off. But that didn’t stop me from bringing home some goodies.
This is a black Amethyst trophy vase. The front is embossed with an Art Deco design of dancing ladies. When you hold Black Amethyst up to the light it shows purple through the glass. It’s a really pretty piece of Depression Glass.
This is a delicate open lace scalloped bowl. It measures 11 inches across. It has an open design around the rim. The base of the bowl has a diamond design. This would be so pretty on your dining room table with Christmas ornaments stacked in it. It looks really delicate but is stronger than it looks. I actually found three of these bowls in different designs and different sizes but all with the open lace edging. How lucky is that.
Wouldn’t this be pretty on your buffet table serving punch? It’s made of aluminum. Quite ornate for what it is. I haven’t seen one quite like this before.
Who doesn’t like cobalt blue and white. This has a pretty windmill design on the front. It has a German makers mark. I usually think of these being Delft but it isn’t marked with the Delft name. This is C.A.W. Germany.
If coffee isn’t your choice, how about tea? I thought this was a brass teapot until I picked it up. It’s totally pottery. It is marked “Made in England”. I haven’t measured it yet, but it looks like it might hold two cups. It is such a pretty little teapot.
We never know what we’ll find. I have a lot of research ahead of me. I like to find out more about the things I bring home. I am excited to go back this next weekend. The same estate sale is having another sale. The things that didn’t sell at half price will be marked down even farther. The only thing I like better than a good sale, is good prices. Check back and see what our new finds are. Till then, Happy Holidays.
