Very pretty spoon holder from Enesco’s Kitchen Independence line! This is Betsy Ross, measures 5 ¾” tall, and is in excellent condition with only evidence of “use” being some cold paint loss on the flag. Nice item, very collectible!
This is an unusual and difficult to find Enesco napkin holder – a variation of the Mother in the Kitchen line! She has the lace trim glued around her apron and her hat, the apron has “It seems the harder I work, the luckier I get”. She has wonderful color and her facial features are very pretty – she has large, expressive eyes. Excellent condition!
Very nice spice set with rack made by Kromex! There are 8 spice containers (all spice, cayenne, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, mustard, nutmeg, and paprika), measure 3 5/8” tall, have shaker inserts, and are silver color with light copper color lids. The silver color rack measures 8 ½” long, 4 ½” wide, and 4 ¼” tall (at tallest). It has 2 holes for hanging and is also free standing. Has the word “Spices” on front...
The detail on this kitchen towel is outstanding! It depicts the contents of an old general store in New Harmony Indiana – there’s a pickle barrel, sacks of beans and salt, a barrel of lard, etc. Towel is a Warren Boucher design and it has never been used – still has the “KayDee handprints” paper label. Made of 100% pure linen and measures 30 ½” x 17”. I purchased this towel at an estate sale and it’s a super collectible!
Cute chalkware wall figures! Although the box is a little worn, these kitties have never been removed. Per box, this is “Kitty Kat Family” and consists of mommy and 3 babies. They’re in very good condition with a couple babies having a few missing flecks of color (not from use, occurred during storage). Neat set!
Wow – this is Shawnee’s covered wagon planter and it still has the original silver foil label! Planter has typical Shawnee colors – beautiful – and attention to mold detail – excellent! Measures 4 1/8” long (at longest), 2 3/8” wide (at widest), and 3 ½” tall (at tallest). Mint condition.

Beautiful set of 4 Bascal tumblers! There’s a pumpkin color, spring green, blue, and green – all marked Bascal. Measure 4 ½” tall and are in wonderful condition. Minor interior water “spotting” on the green one and the blue one has a small indent at rim – I’m certain it occurred during storage and is not detrimental. Glasses look new!
Another beautiful aluminum listing – this one has 8 colorful bowls! They measure 2” tall, 5 ¾” diameter and are unmarked. I don’t believe these have ever been used – the very minor marks are from storage/stacking. Colors are outstanding: purple, electric blue, pumpkin, light gold, bright red, pink, spring green, and green. Super items!
Beautiful aluminum tumblers! There are 8 in this listing, measure 4 ½” tall, and are unmarked. The colors are extra nice: red, purple, light gold, spring green, teal/blue, silver, dark green, and a pumpkin color. In excellent condition – the gold one has what appears to be water/soap spotting but I’m not certain – it could be production but is not detrimental. Very nice!

Very nice set of Pyrex mixing bowls! These are white with the early American design in brown. Bowl sizes: 1 ½ pint, 1 ½ quart, and 2½ quart. Excellent condition – no chips, dings, or cracks!
Very pretty Lefton birds wall plaque still in its original box! Measures 8 ¼” long, 5 1/8” wide and is white with 2 gold finches and lots of very detailed applied rose buds. Has a bisque type finish. Doesn’t appear to have ever been used – the hang wire isn’t even unfolded – has Lefton red and gold foil/paper sticker. Nice.

Jeannette Glass Company’s iridescent Floragold items are so pretty! Made in the 1950’s, there are 4 pieces in this listing – a creamer, sugar with lid, covered butter, and a scalloped oval candy with 4 feet. All pieces are in excellent condition.
These napkins are so neat! There’s a set of 6 white with red wine glass and grapes border and centers have sayings such as “He who goes to bed and goes to bed mellow, lives as he ought to, and dies an honest fellow” – all 6 are different. In wonderful condition – a couple have a small yellow spot that should launder right out (I did not pre-soak when I laundered them). Unusual and difficult to find items.

The colorful towel shows gray poodles cooking vegetables – this is a “book” piece and can be seen in “Fun Linens & Handkerchiefs of the 20th Century” with a price range of $25-$35.

These aprons are lovely – there’s a black and white gingham and a brown and white gingham! They are decoratively embellished with what is now simply called cross stitch but when originally stitched on gingham it was called “chicken scratch” (before counted cross stitch!). Aprons are in new, never used condition. Very pretty! See all our vintage linens at our website in the FOR THE LADIES category -- www.lins-antiques.com
Absolutely eye catching colors on this metal mesh purse! The color is like carnival glass – it reflects light differently, purple, blue, green. Purse is the perfect size for an evening out (when you don’t want to be bothered with a larger purse) and it’s great for makeup or cash. Measures 4 ¼” tall, 4 ¼” long, 1” wide (at bottom). I don’t believe it has ever been used and when I purchased, it was in a Neiman-Marcus box but doesn’t have tag/label identifying it as such...
This is a beautiful beaded evening bag! It is shell shaped and is covered with navy blue and iridescent beads. Has silver color metal frame and long (shoulder style) chain – the chain can be folded inside so purse becomes a clutch. As often happens with this design, it has been closed on the chain causing a couple rough places about ½” from where it attaches to purse. Handbag is in very good condition – all beads are present. Has Marshall Fields tag and a handmade in China tag...
