Tea


Ohio art...Litho...Tin...buzz words for me.  Little searches usually turn up hours of fun for my viewing research. Research often pays off.


"The Wedding" tin tea set by Ohio Art.


Pelican bride's maid. The number 105 posted on every piece. Perhaps the bottoms wasn't good enough?  Perhaps it was the length of her train?


An image so similar to one from this past Spring can be found under the cake dome.


The blonde prince and his betrothed brunette beauty.



Enough to even make the stars smile.  These are the faces of lithograph love.

Join me over at Sue's for Rednesday...

I can't get enough. I only own one piece of Ohio art litho (my sacred child's snow shovel). I've always wanted my very own tea set. The graphics are just adorable.

Happy Rednesday!

Renee, I love your tin dishes, especially the cake carrier! There is a lady with a booth at the Nashville Flea Market that is filled with these sets, and sand pails and tiny cabinets and such. The prices are so high that I consider it a museum! But I do like to look at it all. Your set is grande! Sandie

vintage grey said...

I love the tin tea sets. there is a tin tea set with kitties on etsy, that I am so eager to buy. they sure don't make vintage treasures like this anymore, such quality and a pure work of art.

Oh, Renee, those are awesome! I've always wanted to find a good-enough set at a yard sale to scoop up!
