Thinking Pink #4: Madame Alexander Doll, Austrian Rose Vase, Mother Goose and More

Today I'm sharing some of my latest finds;
they all have one thing in common:
The color Pink!
(It is indeed, my favorite color so why not dedicate a weekly post to it?)
 
 
This is a beautiful Victorian era
vase with a lovely rose transfer.
 
Marked Austria.  

This demitasse cup and
saucer is just so sweet...
Fun to collect and mix and match,
to create a vintage Chocolate Pot
set of your own.
 

And these are also fun!
It just so happens we have two
weddings coming up in the family.
I think they need to go in the
 box as part of their gifts, don't you?


This iridescent teacup and saucer
 has hints of pink but the periwinkle
blue is also stunning! This
 style can be sought by
tea cup collectors because
 of the footed style.
 
 
I love Mother Goose, old fairy tales,
and poetry books. This one has
a beautiful lithograph cover.
Love the soft pinks!
 
 
And in my last post I mentioned the sale
where we found three Madame Alexander
dolls. This one is part of the "Little Women"
series. She still has her "Watt and Shand" price tag.
This was a beloved, local, department store
that closed and was turned into
 a Marriott convention center several
years ago.
 
I am guessing the dolls are
 from the late 70's /early 80's.
They were kept in the boxes
so they look beautiful
and brand new.

 
I just love these elongated dishes...
probably used for serving celery or pastries.
Made in Bavaria.
 
Thanks for reading along today...
and patiently perusing my positively pink picks!
 
Enjoy the day!

HPS, Jillian! You always have the most wonderful vintage finds!!! I love the little doll in the box and the Mother Goose book!!!

I haven't had much luck the last couple of times I went out "treasure hunting"....I think it was more my state of mind vs the goods I looked at. I hope I can change that attitude soon.....finding treasures always perks me up! haha

Have a great PS!!

Oh how lovely. I loved roses long before I moved to Roseville CA but I love them even more here. And I love seeing them on dishes, china, and other home decor items. Thanks for a lovely visit for Pink Saturday.
