Vintage French House Number Sign and More

7.08.2012

When it was 108 last weekend I decided to hit the antique mall and I was glad I did. Here is what came home with me from that visit.



My favorite find is this vintage French enamel house number. I started not to get it, but knew if I didn't I would regret it. It was marked $35 and by paying cash I got a 10% discount.

Six vintage Myott ironstone plates for $18.

They have the most wonderful crazing.



Unmarked good size ironstone pitcher.

My second favorite find is this old chippy French blue enamel colander. Only $20.




Mr. Savvy noticed the colander hanging from the pot rack and said that it matches my vintage bread box that I just got a few weeks ago. He is so observant, that man of mine. 
No, I take that back he still hasn't noticed the repainted mantel. I guess he notices the little things.


Thanks so much for your kind comments on my home tour post.
Have a super duper week!

  2. Love your new finds! Lucky you to find that wonderful house #! I thought the same thing about the blue colander matching your blue bread box. That is such a pretty shade of blue.

  9. Ohhhhh such pretties. We inherited my MIL's Myott when we married twenty years ago. I have most of the pieces left, but some didn't make our many military moves. I mostly have the cups and saucers and salad plates.
    I love the pattern. I love that colander, its a beauty.
    FYI, painting my breakfast hutch with my new ASCP. EEK! We'll see how it goes. :) xxoo, Barb

  16. Darn, I'm going to have to go to the shed and get the 12 place setting of Myott that we used when we were newlyweds. Love the comment about the repainted mantle. One day my hubby asked where the large upholstered rocking chair in our bedroom came from.......uhhhhh....over a decade ago he picked it up for me at the store. Men really are in their own world!

  36. Oh, my crackers! I want that French enamel sign! I went to France last year (compliments of hubby giving me a birthday gift) and I fell in LOVE with their blue enamel street signage. I can't wait to see where you put it....and if you can't find room for it...you know who to call!
