Some interesting antique and vintage finds…

 

Where I live in Connecticut there are no shortage of places to look for antique and vintage goodies.  From super high-end, fine antique shops where I drool and then imagine the responsibility of owning an 18th century piece that I would have to cordon off and put a look but don’t touch sign on.  To super cool consignment and Goodwill shops that I have found some real treasures at.  Here are a few of my latest discoveries.

Love these gold SyrocoWood shelves

These SyrocoWood shelves were made in Syracuse, New York probably in the 60′s.  I adore these!  Anything with all that detail and gold is fabulous in my book.  I’ve seen them describes as Hollywood Regency but I always think of my mother’s friend Ida whose home was filled with gold leaf and porcelain figurines that I would love to look at when we would visit many years ago when I was a kid.

Look at these drink recipes!

Look at that Art Deco Forman Brothers cocktail shaker!  Beautiful!  It has a Bakelite handle and on the bottom are drink recipes, just the bees knees!  This piece really is a real looker, quite sculptural and I can imagine is being used in a speakeasy during prohibition ;)

Wedgwood lamp with paint on it!

Lastly is this Wedgwood lamp that I picked up.  I cannot resist anything with faces, be they human or animal.  So when I saw this lamp i just loved the face and upon taking a closer look I noticed it was covered with paint.  Who paints a Wedgwood lamp??  I got it for a very good price and am convinced with the help of Pinterest that I can find a way to get the paint off without ruining the glaze underneath.

If anyone knows how to get paint off a piece of china please let me know.  And I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Cheers,

Jayne

  1. Wow you found some great treasures! I especially like the cocktail shaker……have never seen one like this. I don’t know how to remove paint from your Wedgewood lamp though…….so no help there. :( Pinterest is a great place to start looking though!

  2. LOVE that cocktail shaker! I make a few good finds here, too. But lately, our Goodwill has been super pricy. I don’t get what that is about!

  3. That cocktail shaker is pretty sweet =) Nice finds! I love going to second hand stores…I just wish I had more space to put things, lol!
