When I was in Maine antiquing with the lovely Linda (Lulu’s Musings),
I came across this sweet treasure.
Everything about it attracted me to it . . . the color, the pattern and the shape.
When we completed our rounds of the shop
I headed back to take a second look, it truly called my name
and I had to take it home with me!
This very old sugar bowl certainly has been well loved.
This piece was pretty much intact, with a little chip here and there
mainly around the rim of the bowl. However, for its age, it was in great condition.
I found the little antique book on the Maine trip too.
It is titled, “French Guide”
I found another treasure in the same store as the book
and will save that for another day.
I have learned from my friend Mary Alice
that things always look better when it sits upon a stack of vintage ironstone plates.
I am so happy that I did not pass up on this piece as I so love it.
I did pass up on one piece of ironstone that was in an antique mall
in Maine and I am feeling a little remorse. I am sure many of you know the feeling!
