My First Piece of Ironstone!

I didn't know what the hub-bub was all about with Ironstone until I spotted this little beauty at the thrift store.


The flower detail and the crackly finish had me at "oh-loh" (who saw Megamind this past weekend like I did?)

She's got a few chips but I think that just adds to her character.


It's official, I've started my collection and for $3!

That is a beautiful piece! I have not heard of Ironstone but I think a trip to the thrift store is on order. What year was that made in?

Uh-oh. You could get addicted to this stuff once you start. Great start though. It's just beautiful. I have a weakness for pitchers. I probably have 12-15 in all sizes.

What an adorable little pitcher!

I've never heard of Ironstone before. Is it like a type of ceramic? Either way, I think that is quite a find you have! It's beautiful and very vintage looking :)

Terra said...

I too know nothing about ironstone but I think your find is beautiful and 3 bucks...score!

I love ironstone. I had a whole set of it when I got married a century ago, and gave it away.

It would be antique now! LOL..

I need to go browse a few antique shops and see if I can find some for my pantry...

Hi Heather!

Thanks for linking this week to Alphabe-Thursday!

I can picture this adorable vase crammed full of fat pink roses!

Just lovely.

I'm glad you got bitten by such a wonderful 'bug'!

Thanks for linking. I love your treasure!

A+
