Vintage Thingies 38 - Children's Coffee Set

Time flies when you ought to be doing something and end up just thinking about doing it. It is Thursday again, and I'm participating in Suzanne's Vintage Thingies Thursaday. You will find all the links here at the end of the post.

I have shown you earlier my hand painted teacups. The next set was in the same cupboard. This again is something I have received from my mother when I was all grown up.

It is a coffee set for three. My mother has played with them when she was a child, in the 1920's.

These are the saucers, with three different children playing with kitchenware.

This little plate is not from the set, it has a different manufacturer's stamp on the back. But here also the child is in black and there is a duck, too.

I had a new doll size tea set from my grandparents when I was little, but there was nothing left of it when I was grown and wanted to take it with me. Maybe mother gave me this set to replace my loss!

Have you ever noticed that when you have found
something nice, you suddenly bump into similar
things in many places? Well, in the latest issue of
Kodin Kuvalehti, my women's magazine, was an
article about a lovingly renovated summer cottage.
The owner could participate in VTT every week for
a couple of years with her treasures! I just wanted
to show you her blue and white towel rack cover
and her butter crock, which is a little bigger than
mine and has a different flower decoration.

Don't you just love her kitchen?

Have a lovely VTT!
