Dreaming of A Pink Christmas - New Listings: Nippon, Hatpin Holders, Teapots

If you are a fan of pink then the traditional Christmas colors of red, green, blue, gold are transformed into pastels like baby pink, aqua, mint green and silver.

That's why when I picked up this pink platter at the auction I just had a vision of it being filled with vintage glass ornaments.


Now this old pink hatpin holder might not work with tree ornaments but after the holidays pass this is sure to warm your heart as a bright spot on your vanity.


Aren't these salt and pepper shakers adorable? Made by Denton China of England.


A trio of cupid Valentine postcards. I am amazed by how many postcards I find that are just gorgeous, mini works of art.


An antique celery dish...now this might just make it to your holiday table serving up something yummy. Cranberry sauce perhaps? Does anyone serve celery anymore? I have heard they do!


The next two pieces are amazing. This dresser box is larger than most. From the Czech Republic by Pirken Hammer. Handpainted...inside and out!


Each week I have a favorite piece. This one is it! A beautiful Nippon handpainted teapot.


This is the other side. Beautiful!


Another teapot with a little bit of chippy shabby wear but still oh so charming! From my personal collection.


And a sweet pink rose hatpin holder by Nippon.




All available (plus more not shown) in my latest listings on Bella Rosa Antiques.... and my theme this week "Dreaming of a Pink Christmas".




If you're a regular Pink Saturday reader then I'm sure you will be too!

Some of your wonderful pieces are bringing back Thanksgiving memories of the whole family gathering out on the farm. We had a large clan in those days. I am surprised we did not break more fancy dishes.

Happy Pink Saturday Sweetie...
What a gorgeous share today. I love the pieces that you found at the auction. Treasures galore.

That one little napkin holder, I can see with some little pink ball Christmas picks, it would be so beautiful to display that for the holidays.

Your ornaments are so pretty on the platter. Love the color. Who would have thought many years ago that one day we would be displaying so much pink for the holidays.

Thanks for sharing sweet friend. Country hugs and much love, Sherry

I wish I could remember where I was (on blogs) this week, where someone featured a photo of plastic cups with celery, carrot sticks w/the dip in the bottom of the cups. I thought about that as I read your post, I think celery is still served and munched on...although I prefer carrots to celery by a long shot. I love the dishes you have displayed, some collection. It'd be difficult to part with some of them. Makes me think of my grandmother's stuff and a few things my mom has. Vintage is wonderful - and those ornaments really took my home to my childhood. Enjoyed my visit. Hope you make some sales. Happy Pink Saturday! Jenn
