A weekend of treasure

It was one of those weekends where good stuff just jumped into my arms.  It was everywhere.  It was eclectic and at prices I couldn't walk away from.

Vintage Chinese Checkers board with charming illustrations. Perfect as a decorative element in a game room.

This wire camp griller went right into my wire collection.

Pair of silverplated candlesticks where marked down and then half price. I'll polish them up and in my space they go next weekend.

 This thrift store had a pair of antique, marigold carnival glass bowls and with a price of a typical happy meal. 

 The both came home with me.

I adore cut glass and this pretty little cruet will sparkle once I clean it.

A marvelous find, lovely American Brilliant Cut Glass carafe by Hawkes.  Early Hawkes hallmark etched on bottom.  Now the real struggle, do I sell or keep?

Marvelous photo of two women on a carved wooden frame.  
But the real jewel is on the reverse.

I will post this information a genealogy board as I would love to see it return to family.

Marvelous first edition with and tooled leather cover about the Great Outdoors. 

Pretty little pair of late Victorian transferware butter pats.

Charming vintage, pocket book of Dogs.
Love this vintage aluminum basket for a hanging scale.  So many great kitchen uses or fill with your favorite knitting/crochet yarns in a sewing room.

A lovely, elegant Depression glass needle etched design.  This is one of those large ones that is used under a punch bowl service to keep the the ladle from the tablecloth.

Mad love for these group of antique and vintage book covers.  Not sure why they were removed but thrilled that they were saved.  These will be fun to frame and display as decorative elements.

In the 1960s, 3D religious art was wildly popular.  
This is a large piece of the Immaculate Conception,

Not one but two 3D art pieces and this one is The Garden of Gethsemane.  Religious pieces always sell very well for me.

A series of marvelous Victorian hand colored print.s

It doesn't get more 1970s than this.  Needlework bell pulls were the high of decoration for the home that had a Colonial flair.  This pretty petite and needlepoint bell pull is charming.

And last but never least, a 1980s board game by Donald Trump. 

What a group of interesting items found and most will be in my spaces at the Lyon's Head Antique mall this weekend.  I'm finishing up this blog on the last day of January 2020...another month that has flown by with February here tomorrow.  Did you know that this is a Leap Year?  Lucky us, we gain an additional day this year so my wish is extra blessings to you and those you love.  Sea Witch
