Sabi Saturday – Vintage Enamel Ware Pitcher
To find out more details, and join in, just click the above link.
Sabi Saturday is open for a whole week where we share:
- the vintage/antique items handed down or we “rescue” from garage sales and thrift stores so they don’t end up in a trash bin
- items we’ve upcycled instead of throwing them away
- items we’ve repaired in a transformative way to make them more beautiful or cooler than before
- process or tutorials on how we upcycled or repaired something to make something new, more beautiful, or cooler
- the main idea is showing how we treasure or reuse or creatively transform things that have some history to them, may be a bit worn but nevertheless are still useful/beautiful and often have character.
This is a vintage enamel ware pitcher, washbowl, and soap dish.
A friend of ours found it in an abandoned house many years ago, and gave it to me.
It is marked on the bottom with 215. D, but I don’t know what that means, even though I tried to find out.
I still use these quite often. It is pretty distressed, chipped, and rusted out a bit (the pitcher has a hole in it). I’ve used the pitcher to scoop up birdseed, and the wash basin I’ve used as a planter, and also a fairy garden at one time.
I love using old things like this, and am always on the look out for small antique/vintage pieces at yard sales.
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
