Ironstone Compote

What to show today for Vintage Thingie Thursday? hhmm?
I had trouble deciding, so here is a ironstone compote I bought last fall. Love anything green, and I really like the style and faded color of this.

I realized when I turned it over the company name was the name of my ancestor! However, we were already in the good ole USA when this was probably made!

Decided to put some of my dried hydrangea's in the dish



Have a very Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!

That is a very pretty compote. It could be used for several things. It looks nice the way you are using it.

So pretty! I love old ironstone! And I'm jealous of the dried hydrangeas - it's too cold to grow them here. Thanks for sharing.

OOOOOh....Awwwwe! I love it and have never seen anything like it before- like the little pitcher too.
What did you get out of my booth?
My interenet was down for over 4 hours this morning, but I'm back on now!
Hugs- Tete

It's beautiful! I love the fine detail and color. So many things would look good displayed in it, the hydrangeas are gorgeous.

Very pretty! I love ironstone! I haven't seen a lot of it with that pretty green color. Love it!!!
I was also looking at pictures of your Victorian house and your beautiful flowers in the yard... our Victorian house is a similar color!
