Galvanized with Ruffles!

linking with Mosaic Monday

how happy was i to find this unusual
galvanized tray with a handle and fluted edge?!!!
ruffles are in, right?

five dollars is what i paid at
my favorite sanford and son junque shop.

i think it is an oil change pan for a tractor.
it has Hudson written on it. 
for me it will probably hold poinsettias at 
Christmas and chrysanthemums in the fall.

i have had this crumbling map piece 
for a century...and an old frame to fit it
but no glass...
fifteen dollars later *ouch...i'm a cheapskate*
it has glass...i wish it was bubbled old glass.
now...where to hang it is the issue. 
i stink at geography and honestly need to 
study it so i'll have a clue where some of these
places are! 
the large white chippy wooden box,
i got a few weeks ago and keep picturing it
filled with pink roses as i've seen
in some magazine article (do you happen to know the one?)
it was on a dining room table under a chandelier.

below are pics of a piece of transferware
i found this week.
i'm hoping an expert will drop by and 
give me an appraisal :) and hopefully the
name of the pattern. 

Now to tell you of something fun tomorrow and all Tuesdays!
will be hosting a sales event for all of us to join called 
The Bloggers Bodega. 
Come play :)

Well hello you sweet thang! So true, moving closer to you :) How are things with you? I see you're still loving the antiques! I bet your boys are growing up!!! I hope we can find a way to meet up at least once while we're on that side of the coast!

Lovely finds!

Hi - what lovely things you found! I have some kind of memory of those roses on the table, which is confusing as I read mainly British and French magazines and I imagine you see American ones! Perhaps it was on a blog? Thanks for your comment, too - you were the only reader who seemed to identify with my slight distraction on the Keanu issue!

Love your ruffled tin! I can also picture it holding geraniums in the summer! Have a wonderful day!

see you there! said...

That ruffled tin is so interesting. I wonder if the ruffles served a purpose in it's original use.

Off to visit Bloggers Bodega.

I have some info for you.....the vase is an Aesthetic piece which you can read about here:
It was made by the Dale Hall Pottery Compnay, of Longport, Burslem, Stoke On Trent
The Dale Hall Pottery Co appeared to be in operation for a year only, appearing in two directories for 1892.
They were concurrent with Keeling & Co (1887-1936/7) and would have shared the Dale Hall Works with them, which was common for potters to do.
The pattern is Keele.

I think I'm going to do a short post about the 1790 that is on your backmark as that was pretty common even though it was not made in 1790.

It's a nice piece, probably worth anywhere from $30-50.

Hope this helps!
