Unique Finds

9.02.2014

Last week I shared some photos of my antiquing adventure in Florida. Today I am sharing what came home with me.

These are French juggling batons. I think there was another name for them on the tag, but cannot remember what it was.


Of course I don't juggle, but I love the patina of these and you can see how some finish is worn off of them from the juggler's hands.

I just simply placed them on a stack of books, but I'm sure they will move around to different spots.



The other unique find is this old siphon bottle. Yes, I know siphon bottles are not that unique, but the spout on this one is different and unique and is why I bought it.

The end is a bird's head and beak. Cool, huh?

I only have one other siphon bottle and it is green with no writing on it. I love the graphics on this one.

When I got it home I didn't know where I was going to place it so I just stuck it on the chest in the foyer for now. When I make some fall changes I'm not sure where it will land.

I hope if you have anything unique to share you will come back tonight and join Wow.

Have a super day and see you tonight!

  3. I always thought those were seltzer bottles. I have a beautiful blue one that I got from Decor Steals - but I didn't want blue! LOL Thinking about taking it to my work office - I do have blue in there and it might look nice displayed there.

    2. I was looking at mine last night and it appears to have a duck head/beak on the spout - but very small. I need to google it. Too bad I can't use the blue!

  12. I have a set of wooden dumb bells as well, but wasn't sure how to display them. Thanks for the idea! I think the store may have tagged them incorrectly since juggling batons have a long, slender neck and are heavier on the bottom. Regardless, they look great in your home!

  21. Kim,

    I have some wooden thingamabobs with a little leather strap that look like bowling pins, and I think mine were used for exercise. I also have one wooden baton. I think the long ones that I have a pair of are called Indian Clubs for some reason. Neat that you found a pair of the batons. I love that antique store in Destin. I used to go there a lot when Mr. Magpie had business in that area. I adore it.

    I am going to join you tonight for Wow Us Wednesday. I just got on your mailing list. This sounds like a fun meme.

  24. The juggling batons are pretty cool - I agree, lovely patina. I laughed because your book stack looks exactly like mine - same books... lol! I'm definitely due for an antiquing jaunt. You inspired me... :-)

  27. Love it all, and I giggle to myself ''cause I have those same treasures in my collection!
    I've had two sets of the "French juggling batons" through the years, but sold one set to an old friend when I found the cOOler second set. I too was told they were dumb bells--?? They sound cooler as "French juggling batons!" I think I'll be going with that! ; D
