I have amassed quite a collection of vintage dishes and barware. Most of it was given to me by my mom. She and Dad used to go to lots of auctions and flea markets. When they winterized the cottage and retired there several years back, they ended up with far too much stuff in a smaller home.
Mom feels more inclined to get rid of stuff if somebody in the family takes it. Since my siblings don't usually want anything, that leaves me. And I'm happy to take it. For the most part. The odd time I have taken an item or two just to get it out of my their house. Like these two pieces. With apologies to my mom, I'm afraid this vintage orange vase, above, just ain't my thing.
And I think my mom really likes this platter. Me, not so much. It is marked Prov Sace E.S. Germany. I did notice just today that it is a great size for holding my cellphone. And the cellphone hides a good portion of the picture. Ha ha.
Do you have any "ugly" items in your collection(s)?
