Wow Find.

Goodwill and an estate sale and then a visit to Cupcake Heaven made it a marvelous Saturday for finding treasure.  One of those days when really good finds just appeared.  Right out the gate, I came across this marvelous set of vintage Wedgwood dinner and dessert plates and saucers.

The pattern is Patrician and one of the most popular of the elegant pieces they offer.

Lovely Art Deco hand mirror and brush “buttercream” Guilloche enamel and silverplate.  Known as buttercream as it is the color of buttercream frosting.  Circa 1930s.  This is a pretty little set.

Beautiful cut glass cordial glasses.   These have that marvelous sound of a bell when flicked by a finger and have a heavy cut base.  Having to do a little homework on these as they have the look of feel of 19th century glass.  Will follow up with what I learn.

Charming, Italian, hand carved animated wine stopper.    What fun to pop this little guy in when serving wine.

From a Weeki Wachee estate, this stunning Persian Rug looks like it has never been walked on.
Gorgeous, Persian rug by Crown Collection Dynamic Rugs. The elegance of the Crown collection is unmatched, reminiscent of classic Persian designs, placed against the strong red viscose background creates a royal ambiance for the aptly named Crown collection. 

Rug is 100% viscose, machine-made in Turkey and measures 5 feet 3 inches by 7 feet 7 inches.  Brilliant reds on a field of black with white details. 

Charming little Italian inlay music box is a small size and perfect for a young girl to keep her favorite pieces of jewelry.

And now, the piece de resistance, I came across these taped together at Goodwill. A stunning pair of English Victorian, silverplate epergne candlesticks.  In amazing condition, I knew these were special but did notknow they were Victorian age.  

A short walk to the next aisle and...

I nearly did a cartwheel to where this was "thrown" in the corner of the shelf.  The matching centerpiece, a seven tier epergene vases.  All, like the candlesticks can be removed from the bases for cleaning.  This is also in amazing condition and marked.  A quick google when I got home and I learned that I really found a treasure.   

Now the struggle, do I keep or do I sell?  We shall see.

Summer is coming to an end and the days will begin to get shorter. I have begun to bring fall into my spaces at the Lyon's Head Antique Mall.  

Handsome pair of turkey platters, everyone needs one for the holidays.

Mid century glass is hot, hot, hot and this pretty orange gradient, ruffled footed bowl would look marvelous when filled with your best dinner rolls or crescents for your holiday dinner.

Rewired this pair of Hollywood Regency lamps and added a pair of new, silk shades.  Heavy with black marble bases, cast spelter with original gold paint and with crystal prisms.  Circa 1930s.  

Finally, when August rolls around it is time to begin drying the hydrangea mops.  I have trays drying them all over the house and these are sacked in glass chimneys as I ran out of trays.  They are drying a gorgeous shade of green and will be ready for decorative fills in quad plate and vintage glassware.

Wishing everyone a joyful Labor Day and blessings to you and those you love. SeaWitch
