My Latest Vintage Keepers

 You know I'm always out and about buying vintage, don't you?

Here are the latest few pieces I've kept in the past couple of months.

Above and below, an enormous polka dot bowl, perhaps a fruit bowl, which matches the polka dot set I showed you here.


Love that atomic shape on the feet!




I also got the ashtray...and you know how I am with ashtrays. Thanks to Sue and here reference-book-buying habit, I now know that this set dates to 1957 and was made by H.G.Woods in England, although most pieces are unmarked.



Another Dallas Simpson print, I'm slowly getting together a few of these and will hang them all on a 'kitsch wall' when I have enough.
I wasn't really looking for more ashtrays, but when old advertising ones come my way for free it'd have been rude to say no, right??






Lovely Art Nouveau coin silver trinket set, another freebie :)



50s gooseneck standard lamp, I've wanted one of these for ages and it's the best thing ever, in fact it's due to go to the shop at some point but I hope that day doesn't come too soon.
This one's not my fault either, Mum found it for me at a local flea market.



Very-completely-fabulous lucite cigarette or trinket box



Echoes of Deco in this sleek ashtray


I love the way all these 50s ceramics are shaped and have such high raised sides.



Last but not least, another miserable child print, purchased from the WAC just 2 weeks ago.

Err, I'm sorry about this, Kitty, but there seems to be some mistake. I think that silver set and the lucite cigarette box are actually meant to be mine. And the lamp. So if you can just rectify that by sending them over. Thanks!
Beautiful treasures, as always my dear! xxxxx

Oh delicious goodies galore:)). I love all the ashtrays so much, especially the gorgeously kitsch pink one - shame I don't smoke anymore but I find them very handy for my dressing table clutter and small change. Would love to catch up soon love, but prob won't be for a while - health stuff. Hope you and your gorgeous wee lassie are doing well xoxoxo
