Friday's Find #185


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends!  Today's first fabulous feature is class vintage Fire King, in a pattern I love, Primrose. I own several pieces of the charming floral pattern, but I've never found the luncheon plates before. They are missing the cups, but were priced accordingly, plus these could also serve as small snack trays.

Here's a table setting I shared last year, featuring pretty Primrose with my jadeite.

Though I was tempted to keep all of this week's haul, I already have the sugar bowl and creamer set, so these are Available.

The last two finds from this week are a little unusual. I am keeping both this tree trunk planter...

  3. What pretty finds. I've never seen the primrose pattern before yours. Looks so pretty paired with the jadeite. I think the bird on the branch piece is a candle snuffer. At least from the photo that's what it looks like. Great finds!

  5. I love your sweet finds! I can just picture ladies at a card table having brunch on those little plates! They are so pretty, & like others have said, I don't recall having seen this pattern before, but it looks great with your jadeite. Looks like you made a nice haul this week.

  9. I have heard of courting lamps (smaller oil lamps) that once the oil was gone the courting time was over! :)

  10. That birdhouse and branch piece looks like it could be a candle snuffer. The birdhouse should be open on the bottom and hollow inside if it is. Great finds! 😊
