Vintage Finds

I made it to a couple of estate sales and antique shops this weekend.  I found some good stuff!

This is an old Victorian shoe box.  Much nicer than the shoe boxes of today.  It is very sturdy and has brass details, great for storage.

A cute little enamel pitcher.

And a handful of silver.

The pitcher will be used outside to water the plants on the back porch. 

The silver includes forks, spoons, a bon bon spoon and sugar tongs.

This group is all Scandinavian.

All very ornate, art nouveau details.

  4. I am agreeing with everybody above - love the shoebox!

  5. I have never seen a Victorian shoe box! That is fantastic! I'm also enamored with the enameled pitcher!
