Let me show you the rest of my finds while you are thinking. You know I love blue and white and I’m always on the hunt for cups, which for some reason, seem hard to find. So I was thrilled to find this lovely little group of vintage Blue Willow cups…sans saucers, but I don’t mind!
I also found about a dozen little vintage tartlet tins of several shapes. I have some…but they are new and don’t have this wonderful patina! I have big plans for these during the holidays, so stay tuned!
One of them is the perfect fit for this tiny pumpkin…
…and another is filled with more finds…a nice little collection of vintage buttons of all shapes and sizes, but all in lovely shades of ivory! Some of them are mother of pearl…beautiful!
But my favorite find is this one…a Victorian quadruple silverplate demi-tasse master sugar spooner! It’s over 100 years old and still looks lovely! It has lost some of its shine, but the little bird finial and the handles are still in great shape, as you will soon see!
Its name already tells you what is was used for and these little hooks show you where the spoons were hung.
Here’s a closer peek at the little bird finial…in great condition! Love the details in the feathers!
And here’s a peek at the little bunny-squirrel creature in the handle…fascinating!
If it looks familiar, it’s because I found this one three years ago. The finish of the body seems to be in better shape, but the handle and the little finial had blackened. You can see how the demi-tassse spoons would hang, waiting for the ladies to have their tea.
Her it is in the foreground of this tea party where Baby Kitty served as a handsome but distracted host!
And my very first master sugar spooner was this one, found five years ago, sadly without its lid. However, this one is a traditional spooner, not the smaller demi-tasse size. You will also find some history of the sugar spooner on the same post.
So now I have three! I guess that means I now have a collection, doesn’t it? :-)
