I hope you're enjoying the long weekend if you're getting one! We took a little getaway to visit my daughter for her birthday, and got in a bit of shopping as well.
A fleamarket in her neighborhood turned up a few Euro treasures including this old English transferware pot. Her small town in New Mexico might be a surprising spot for something like this, but you never know where you will find things! That's the thrill of junking!
My strategy when I am not under pressure in a quiet market is to survey everything, and then quickly do a second round making a decision on what to pick up. Did I have any doubt about this little gem, even with a good sized chip missing? Nawww!
There are so many ways to display a stocky piece of ironstone like this. And fall is the perfect time for brown transferware! (Do I say that every season?)
Already quite at home, this piece will be front and center on the table top for a few days. I love the romantic ship and leaf motifs. Both sides are the same.
It's so nice that you stopped by for a peek!
Have a wonderful week!
Ciao! for now!
