I found this 3.5 qt. soup tureen with the most beautiful details on ebay. It came with the huge platter and the spoon for fifteen dollars. I thought that was an extremely good deal for something old and huge. It is made by Elios pottery in Italy, which I know nothing about. I just love the size and details of it.
I love the patina of these and some are monogrammed.
These are the monogrammed butter knives
Old ironstone platter from flea market for seven dollars.
My best find was this silver champagne bucket for thirteen dollars. It is big and heavy.
Others I have found were $75 and up. I think I may have squealed when I found this one.
I am trying to decide whether to leave it tarnished or to shine her up.
Right now it is in my hunt room with some boxwood branches in it.
I am linking to the following parties for all this thrifty goodness.
Debbiedoos for Garage Salen Sundays
Southern Hospitality for Thrifty Treasures Mondays
Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays
Little Red House for Mosaic Monday
Please be sure and check out these parties and see what has been found to reuse.
Y'all come back now,
