Recent Finds....

Over the holiday weekend, I managed to get some antiquing and flea market shopping done...here are my finds.....

Two large plates and two large soup bowls in the Melbourne pattern by Gildea and Walker, dated 1881-1885.....in perfect condition with only mild utensil marks......!!!
I love anything in the brown, sepia and taupe family, can't wait to do a tablescape this Fall!!!

Next, I found 2 plates, 2 soup bowls, 2 little berry bowls and 1 oval vegetable bowl in Purple transferware by Clarice Cliff........
Is that berry bowl tooooooo cute???

These are also in perfect condition, am on the look out for cups and saucers now.......

I also found 2 cups and saucers in brown, called Wild Turkeys, Windsor Ware by Johnson Bros. to go with the brown transferware pieces.....inside the cup is a turkey with purple on its wings and body, forgot to take a pic of those!!!!  They will go with both sets.....the brown is so close to the purple color, no one will notice!!!

I've been busy with gardens, lawn care and general stuff so have not visited in here as often, but will be back soon!!!  Thanks for stopping by..........

You had even better luck than I did!! I see the Clarice Cliff in the purple occasionally - am tempted to pick it up, but trying to just do the brown. Your aesthetic era pieces are wonderful. Sally

Wow, what great finds! Love it all. The purple transferware is amazing! I have a few pieces of red and I love them. I also have a couple of Johnson Bros. plates with a turkey on them that I found thrifting. Love them for Fall and Thanksgiving.

Hi Cleo! So nice to hear from you! Absolutely marvelous pieces! I just love that color and it seems hard to find! We sound a little crazy, don't we? But those little grandbabies are growing up so fast and I want to really be a part of their lives. Thanks always for being such a sweet blog friend.
be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
