Vintage Grapes and Tulips

Welcome to the 50th History and Home Link Party, it’s good to “see” you!  Ah, September, the weather is finally starting to cool off where I am, how about you?  Hopefully it will last, I am quite ready for Autumn.  I’ve already bought two orange mums for the back porch and everything.

Here are a couple of vintage lovelies I found recently at a thrift store.  A glass with red tulips (unmarked) and a “sculpted grapes” serving bowl, also unmarked but matches the highly collectible Metlox Poppytrail dinnerware.

The glass has become my go-to for iced tea, and the bowl is looking for a new home in my antiques mall booth.  I’d love to collect that dinnerware pattern, too, but I have enough dishes sets going and don’t need to add another one!

If you’re a blogger, please share your stories on history, vintage finds, and home decor – yes, this link-up is for home decor and DIY, too!  

I’ll be back soon with this month’s Armchair Junkin, and a visit to a 43-mile yard sale, so stay tuned 🙂

    Hi Dawn! Love your vintage wares–I think I have a pitcher similar to your tulip cup. I don’t know much about Metlox, but when I saw your plate, I immediately thought, that looks like “Franciscan.” My mother-in-law passed on a set of Dessert Rose by Franciscan that had been a wedding gift to her–I love them. I think yours is called “Sculpted Blue Grape.” Thanks so much for sponsoring your great party 🙂

    I always get so excited when you have vintage dishes. I love the Metlox grape pattern. I have been collecting that pattern for a while and hope to use it for a tablescape soon. The tulip glass is a keeper too. I have a couple with sunflowers on them made the same way. I am thinking they were jelly jars at one time. Thank you for hosting Dawn, have a wonderful day….. Candy

    I don’t usually go for flowered pieces like that but that is very pretty – I bet it will sell quickly!!

    Thanks for hosting every week, Dawn!!

      Oh wow, Donna, no but that is a very flattering question for my daughter! She made me that birdhouse when she was 10. It was a Habitat for Humanity workshop for her youth group. Each kid made one for a H for H house that was being built, and one to keep. She knows Ernest Lee’s work and was really flattered when I told her you asked that!

    Love that tulip glass. Isn’t it funny how even though we may have tons of glasses, we always have a favorite go to one?

    92 degrees here today. Ugh. I am so over it. This is Oregon. It just doesn’t happen here!

      Whoa, Erica, we’re cooler here in South Carolina than you are in Oregon! What’s happening? I LOVED the pink cooler and jug you showed on your blog, I don’t know if I left a comment but WOW what an amazing find!
