A couple more Halloween treasurers

First, I want to thank some of the folks who have made such kind comments. I really appreciate the time you take to view my blog. As I said before, I don't have a lot of vintage Halloween but I do love the few things that I have. Today, I decided to show a few more of my treasurers. The first is a brass chestnut warmer. I saw this in Nashville a few years ago at one of the shows that ran adjacent to the big Heart of Country show. (I think this is no longer the case).I took one look and knew it was meant for me!!!!! I had to remain very calm while the SBA negotiated a price. I don't know where it was made or how old it is. There is a number on the back but we have never been able to fine anything out about it.

The dealer we bought this from said his wife got it out every Halloween. In our house, it hangs by the fireplace all year!!

A close up of the wonderful witch. She does remind me of the Daniel Lowe witch but I can't be sure.

This is another treasure that we looked for for a few years. My good friend was on a trip and she saw it in an antique shop. After a phone call and a bit of paper work, she was on her way to Washington.

Love the cats and brooms. This photo color isn't the best. The plate is a very rich cobalt blue.

Daniel Lowe was in business in the Boston area in the late 1800's. He was a jeweler I believe. We have two spoons of his that I'll show you at a later post. Sorry for the blurry photo.

Thanks for joining me and I hope everyone has a great week-end!
