A Couple Great Finds this Weekend

Memorial Day weekend was a good one for us. I showed a couple of items earlier but thought I would save these two unusual ones for last. The first is this frosted bottle that held I can only guess what. From the design and construction my feeling is it was made around 1900 and held a feminine product of some sort. It may be European. I have seen reproductions of these but this is the first time I have found a real one. It is large, around eight ounces so I don't think it held perfume! It is what my wife would call a very romantic piece!

These two are California Angels. Not retired baseball players but a pair of cherubs marked Santa Anita Ware, California. They have a lovely white glaze and nice detail. I wish I had these when I did the post on Califonia Pottery last week. They were made somewhere in the middle of the 20th century, most likely in the 1960s.


  1. That frosted bottle is stunning. I'm not a huge fan of cherubs, but those are really different...not as 'cutesy' as many of them are..but I bet mom would be nuts over them.

    And nice to meet you Gary...Frogpatch IS a lovely place...

  2. The bottle is gorgeous! The cherubs are pretty too. I'm off to check out your other posts.

  3. Love the frosted bottle and cherubs, they are so beautiful!

  4. Thank you for your comments and your kind words!
