Yes, topless tureens!
Don't want the tops - just the bottoms.
I want them crazed and spotted and brown with age.
And I want them now!
I am still in the grips of white ironstone pitchers.
But now I have fallen further into the white ironstone abyss.
The obsession came at me in a rush.
There on the front table when I entered the SPCA Thrift Shop were three perfectly distressed tureen bottoms at 50% OFF!
I immediately put them on the counter.
And my new collection began.
Love at first sight.
The volunteer had her tags and junk in this basket.
She was not going to put it out because it was so worn.
I WANT IT!
And she said yes.
I cannot even count the number of layers of paint.
Peek inside - see the rusty, crusty metal liner?
It looks quite sweet with the topless tureens.
There may be a mantel or a tablescape here.
I'll let you know.
