Vintage Thingie Thursday: Vintage China Pieces

I love these vintage china pieces....thought I'd share them today.

I found this set of 3 atomic mid century bowls. They are small, maybe for custard or a small bowl of soup. They are wonderful vintage bowls and depict that time period fabulously.

I have learned from a little research, this type of china,or anything with an atomic feel has burst and become very popular again. I just love these bowls. But do you think I'd want to sell them....well, not really. I really like them and think they are very unusual.

You know, I don't know why I have a knack for finding 3 or 5 of things...very seldom will I find 4 or 6 of anything. I got these for $1.50 for all three, and was really happy. The bottoms of these are marked,
Syracuse China, 6-1, USA
Don't you just think they scream mid century America?

On this same day, I found this lovely cup and saucer. This is also marked Syracuse China, USA. Look at the lovely details on the saucer.

This looks like it was never used. I am thinking it is part of restaurant ware, as it has the fell of that type of china. I think it is rather charming...and as usual, only one was found. Not bad for .75 cents.

What treasures have you found lately? 

Have a great Vintage Thingie Thursday everyone, and a blessed rest of your week.


  1. Very these pieces! Thank you for hosting. Big hugs,

  2. I love the bowls! LOVE the pattern.


  3. Everything mid century is popular again. I seem to find 3's of things all the time. Just one more thing we have in common.

    Big Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  4. they are very unusual,probably custard cups or for drinking China tea,but very attractive.

  5. Love the mid century pieces but I must say score on the cup and saucer! That is from Antoine's a famous New Orleans restaurant! I have a small bread plate I might have 'borrowed' when I ate there and I'm thinking that is where your cup & saucer came from. If your ever decide not to keep it let me know! I celebrated a very special birthday at that restaurant! I have the menu also! Here is their website!

  6. Those bowls are reminding me of something or someplace that I've seen something so similar to before! I know I'll wake up in the middle of the night thinking about it :)


Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
