Greetings fellow thrifters! It's my favorite day of the week and I am excited to share my latest fabulous find! I grabbed this gorgeous Jadeite vase from an estate sale, thinking it might be a reproduction. I assumed this for two reasons. First, although I collect Jadeite, I had not seen one like it before. Second, it was not marked on the bottom; usually Fire-King is, but not always. Guess what?! I assumed wrong! With a little research I learned that it was manufactured by Fire-King in the 40s and that I really did get a good deal! Happy dance! Of course, my newest pretty is right at home among my collection.
From the kitchen and on to my living room, I love the splash of the green vase against Vintage silver--also thrifted! As an enthusiastic gardener, I can always make use of another vase for flowers or herbs, but....
Then again, it's always fun to use a thrifted vessel other than its intended use! Which do you prefer?
Grouped with the collection, as an elegant accent against the silver, or repurposed as a Vintage office caddy? I can't wait to hear your comments!
