It was fun going through the first trailer load of storage locker stuff. The second trailer load was less fun. OMG. The third trailer load was exhausting and we’re only 1/4 of the way there. OMG.
Try to remind myself of the surprises in every box … and there are … like finding – a much more extensive than I recall – vintage dial telephone collection – soon to be posted for sale. Did I say, OMG!? So far, so good with my intention to list one item for sale each day on our Etsy Shop … I just posted a Sunny Sky vintage soda pop bottle with the original vintage bottle cap at the shop.
It’s the little things … I can’t care if the end of this purge takes a lot longer than I’d like it to … what really matters is that I’ve gotten to admire an empty trailer bed 3 times! Woo Hoo! Gold Star!
There are certain objects spared from the shard pile … this oversized vintage sugar bowl is one of those things. Never had the heart to break it and it’s so big – for a sugar bowl – plus it reminds me of Mackenzie-Childs meets Alice in Wonderland. Pretty sure this is a Victoria Austria sugar bowl in brilliant White and Gold Porcelain Oversized Sugar Bowl with Lid, regal Gold Trim and Scalloped Edges. Unable to find out more information about the makers mark on the bottom of the sugar bowl but I did find a sold out listing – for what looks like the same sugar bowl – on replacements.com. A bit more research lead me to believe that this piece may be Victoria Porcelain Schmidt & Co Bohemia sometime in the early to mid 1900’s. Beautiful condition with no chips or cracks, some shelf marks on footer with minimal fading gold.
After deciding to sell everything that won’t fit in 973 square feet, I had to choose one – and only one – sugar bowl for our little home, this vintage cutie didn’t make the cut … literally;) and it’s On Sale Now in the Shop.
Vintage Sugar Bowl measures approx 6 1/2″ across – from gold handle to gold handle x 5″ high to top of lid x 3 1/4″ deep.
Before attempting to empty the 2 storage lockers full of stuff, it’s probably a good idea to list the art and vintage that is already unpacked and ready to find a new home. #ourkidswillthankmeforthis 😉
#1 – Item of the Day is “Golden Girl“ a beloved mosaic tile stick incense holder that was created with gorgeous iridescent tile, gold tapestry tile, gold shimmer tile and a vintage porcelain flora figurine with ladybug. Glued on to 3/4″ MDF board and then finished off with taupe sanded grout and sealed. One of a kind. Shop.
