Vintage Thingies Thursday~ A Rose Sachet Pitcher




Happy Thursday and welcome to Vintage Thingies Thursday! VTT is hosted by Suzanne @ The Colorado Lady. Be sure to pay her a visit and see who else does it "vintage".








Taylorton-
Rose Sachet Pitcher
1959

All that's left of an entire dinner set. When the Whittier Narrows quake hit in the 80s, the pitcher took a major tumble and was the only piece damaged. When the Northridge quake hit in the early 90s, the entire set came down and all that survived was this pitcher. Since then it's been through quake after quake and yet it remains. I'd like to think it's s strong testament to what once "was".

Thanks for stopping by and saying "Hi!". I hope you have a great day!

Beautiful piece. I can't imagine losing the entire set. I think I would have everything glued down. I've never dealt with quakes before!

That pitcher must be part Timex (takes a licking and keeps on ticking...). Glad you still have once piece that hasn't met its demise.

Almost the weekend...
Warmly,

It is amazing this pitcher survived after 2 quakes. I can only imagine what a nightmare that must have been. I love the little flowers on the side, so pretty.

Thanks for participating in VTT. Have a great week.
