A Little Thrifting

Gentle Friends, here are some things I found over the weekend....

 ... a transferware plate, a cream soup, and liner from Minton c. 1940 and a little hand colored transferware plate showing the Washington Memorial at Valley Forge....

... here's a better snap of the Napoleon Battle plate....

There you go sports fans, thanks again for stopping by!!

Take care,


  1. Great finds (aw usual), the Valley Forge plate is gorgeous!

  2. I so enjoy your thrifting posts—not the least of which because they are an excellent education in classic and antique tablewares. I love it!

    Your ta-da moment silver polishing posts are also so satisfying! Would you consider making a tutorial post? I bought a children's bowl and plate set a couple of years ago, and though not black, it is on its way, for I am still hesitating to polish it for fear of damaging it/losing detail on the engraving (etching?).

  3. I love any trasferware! I have nere seen one like that.

  4. Wow.. lovely finds!! Love your thrifty posts :)
