A Little Thrifting

Gentle Friends, over the weekend I found a couple of super things..... here are some snaps...

... the first up would have to be this late 19th-century Japanese porcelain vase covered in birds and flowers with gilded highlights.. and a little blue vase made in the US I think in the late 40's...

... another view if the vase...

... and what I am calling the back side with the two little birds...  I also found this great sterling bowl...

 ... made here in SF and marked Shreeve & Co., it was filthy and still had the residue of silver polish left in the decorative band about the lip...

 ... after about 5 minutes of polishing, I had most of the dried polish removed and the silver looking silvery again!!  I think this is a waste bowl from a larger tea service.

There you go sports fans another week of treasure hunting.... thanks for stopping by do stop again!!

Take care,


  1. You always find such beautiful things!

  2. The Japanese vase is quite lovely. It always amazes me how you find such nice silver. I have never spotted silver while thrifting.

  3. Your vase is just beautiful! What a find!

  4. Amazing finds.. love all of them! The vases go along well together

  5. That vase with the birds is absolutely stunning!! Love the intricate designs on it. You really find beautiful treasures on your hunts!
