Well, we did it again . . .
~ ~ as I said previously, I am going to name our antiquing adventures . . .
~ ~ ~ ~ or create a handbook, “How to Find Great Antiques if You Love to Drive”
Yes, the driving guide, as the prerequisite is that you have to love to travel 2 hours or more. 🙂
On this day, Mary Alice and I set out to Carlisle, PA and visited a few shops there.
It was at one of the three shops we visited that I found this beauty!
A petite ironstone tureen with it’s under plate and ladle!!!
It has a beautiful “crown motif” on the lid and handles . . .
And also on the under plate . . .isn’t it just beautiful??? I am so thrilled with it. Can you tell???
In addition the to the “crown motif” . . . there is another pretty detail on the lid and plate.
I added some vintage leather/marbled covered books that I also found on our shopping excursion . . .
~ ~ for $5.00 each . . . to create a little vignette on the top of my Antique French Commode.
Placed my ironstone mortar and pestle on top of the vintage books of Shakespeare Works . . .
~ ~ I purchased the mortar and pestle from the antique mall, Melville Trading, Mebane, NC . .
~ ~ ~ ~ where I have a booth.
By far, this is my favorite piece of ironstone . . . which was made by Adams and Sons (England) . . .
~ ~ it is in near perfect condition with only one teeny chip at the bottom of the tureen . . teeny!
And are you curious as to what I paid for it?….Ready???….$38.00 LESS 30%….
~ ~ the entire booth was 30% off!!!
So a grand total of $26.60 !!! Happy Dance!!
I cannot stop admiring it…just puts a smile on my face!…
I do have more to share from “our adventures”…
Have a great day . . . and hope you come across something amazing today that will also make you dance…
~ ~ it doesn’t have to be a material thing . . .
~ ~ ~ ~ as the sight of my granddaughter makes me really “dance” !!!
Loved ones….the true treasures of life !!!
