Our treasures mean a lot to us and we really enjoy sharing them. Join Suzanne @http://coloradolady.blogspot.com/ for todays post.
Last week I discovered an estate sale. I almost missed it, the signs were not very well posted. The sale was put on by the owner and not an estate group. She had 60 years of collectibles, a basement full and then around 5 rooms on the main floor. As I walked through one of the sitting rooms I noticed a stack of dishes, as I walked closer my heart started racing, could it be---a large set of Brown Transferware. How beautiful the pieces were, there was not a price listed. I found the owner and she said $39.00. FOR THE WHOLE SET. It is a set for 6 including the platter, cream and sugar and gravy boat. The only piece missing is one plate. I've seen this pattern and love it however the price was always too steep for me.
I absolutely love the dark red, greens and yellows that complement this beautiful brown color.
I have ofcourse looked up the pattern on the internet and discovered my purchase was quite good. I will be on the lookout for other pieces to match. I've caught the Brown Transferware Bug!!!!!!
I purchased other items at this sale too, I will share them later on. Have a wonderful Vintage Thingie Thursday.
