Good Morning! It's Vintage Thursday.  Today I want to share a couple of small vases I bought in the past couple of months.  One I bought at a yard sale and the other at a flea market I went to with my sister Ann (tin and sparkle).  We spent two days at a wonderful flee market in Sparks, Kansas.  The second day our younger sister drove up and spent the day with us.  We had so much fun.  I live 8 hours away and don't get to get home often enough.

Here are my wonderful finds.
This cute vase does have a small paint chip on the lip of the vase but the detail work and little gold dots were just too beautiful to pass up for $3.50. Well, actually I like to barter so I paid less.

Its 5 inches tall. The vase is a Hand Painted Nippon Pitcher by Dow Sie Cot Ure 

This pitcher is marked 
Royal Crown Chantilly Rose.  Hand painted 1943
I paid $5. for it.  I love the unique handle.
Thanks to one of the readers I found out it was from Japan during war years.

I have no Idea if I got anything of monetary value but I think they are so pretty!

Have a blessed week. Debbie

The second vase is really pretty! But I also find the second vase interesting, because of it's Nippon (Japan) backstamp and the date 1943.
Those were war years and the USA was not importing anything from Japan at that time. So it makes me wonder how that little piece eventually found it's way to Kansas. If only the pieces could talk.

I would say you did very well with these finds. They are both lovely pitchers, but I like the style of the first one.

These are so pretty! I told my husband that next year I want to go to this flea sounded like so much fun, but we could not make it this year! I think you did rather well...price wise too! Have a great VTT!
