that I found this summer
while treasure hunting.
Sometimes it is hard to determine
what things I will send to the shop,
and what things I would like to keep!
Here are a few keepers
I just couldn't part with.
This is called a refrigerator basket
and is dated 1902. It was made by the
Burlington Basket Company
of Burlington, Iowa.
It is very heavy and has the greatest patina.
|It is lined with galvanized metal and can hold ice.|
|The top pops off and it can be used as a cooler.|
|Here is the metal tag on the top/|
|This advertisement from 1908, so I guess I found an older model.This newer model was lined with asbestos and hair felt?|
Then I found this old photograph.
It's two feet wide.
|The dealer said it is a famous jockey and his horse..... anyone have any info on this?!!|
Then I found these random,
but very sentimental finds.
Below are two little German
wooden napkin rings that are mine.
When I was little and I was sick,
my mother would bring me a tray table with
food to my bed and that was the only time
she ever used these.
Even though I was sick....
they would always make me smile.
My two kids have grown up with them
on their tray table when they have been sick....
the tradition lives on.
I have forever looked to find more
so each of my children would have their own set
to care for their sick babies.
Look what I recently found at a flea market!
|They still have their little faces! BONUS!|
|Three more little get well smile messengers. :)|
What fun vintage treasures
have you found lately?
