Vintage Thingies Thursday 26 - Bowls and Trays

Two posts on one day, but this is Thursday and I don't want to miss Vintage Thingies! If you feel like joining in, it is easy when you follow the instructions on Coloradolady's blog.


My thingies this week are all nickel plated metal from the early years of last century. This bowl would be perfect for all the little things you leave on the entrance hall chest of drawers: keys, coins, mobile phones, notes, business cards ...


... but then this lovely lady with her long curls and water lilies would not be seen.


This basket calls for buns or biscuits, don't you think?


The last one is a simple tray which has suffered a lot. I'm afraid we may have played with this in our playhouse, and maybe in the sandbox too. I like the perfect form of it. I should start using it for my afternoon tea on the veranda; there is just enough space for a tea mug and a sandwich for one.


This was all for this week from my cupboard, now run along to see what treasures other people have displayed this week! The link list is on Suzanne's blog.

  1. I especially like that first platter/bowl/tray thingie. You're right, it would be GREAT as a catch all.

    I also like your blog. I spent a few minutes scanning through it and decided to follow.

    My hubby is ALSO a fisherman - - - both fly fishing and bait casting.

  3. What great items. I just love the one with the lady, that is certainly an interesting piece.

    I would have a hard time using that one and covering her up! Have a great VTT.

  7. What lovely things Ulla. The art noveau lady is beautiful. I don't think I would have the heart to cover her in things.

  8. So very nice! They would be great filled with little trinkets of some kind - to be sorted through at your leisure!

  15. Happy VTT. A pretty linen napkin with lace edging would be good for the second silver basket.

  16. I just love how you group your collections in your Vintage Thingies posts.. and you always have such wonderful stories and notes about everything. I can just picture you using that tray in the playhouse. :-) Sometimes things just taste better served on metal.
