I have had a few ask about my tureens...I am guessing it is the white ones that show up each week in my tablescape shots!
When I first started blogging almost 3 years ago I kept seeing white tureens on some of the blogs I was reading. Wanting one badly, I would check the thrift stores weekly without success. All of a sudden I found one, then another and another...you get the picture, I am sure. Each was different so I had to buy every one I found. I have quit buying as I have no place to put any more.
I saw a beautiful Red Cliff that Debbie of Confessions of a Plate Addict blogged about so of course I wanted one of those, too! I found one on eBay that didn't have the underplate for only $25, actually $24.99...which is far less than any of the others for sale...some up around the $300 price. I bought it hoping I would come across the underplate some day. This tureen is by far my favorite.
Most of the tureens were in the $2.98-$3.98 price range with the exception of the one I bought, which was either $5.98 or $6.98 at Salvation Army in Topeka. After that first one, it seemed like every time I walked into a thrift store there was a white tureen wanting to follow me home!
This is the one that really started my collection and the most expensive of the thrift shop tureens!
I believe this is the first white tureen I bought...from Goodwill and the plainest. Most of the tureens are by California Pottery. A couple have no markings at all.
The rest of the tureens...
I have several other colored tureens, but will save them for another time.
Thanks for stopping by today.
I will be joining a few parties this week and hope you will too.
