Vintage Thingie Thursday


Hi Everyone!

Today over at Suzanne's blog, "Coloradolady" she is hosting her weekly party Vintage Thingie Thursday. When you get a moment, stop by and check out all the fun vintage items being shown today.

I found this vintage Ballonoff brown enamelware cake saver at a thrift store recently. Most of the enamelware cake saver/carriers I see are really beaten up but, this one was in pretty good shape. It definitely has scrapes in the enamel, but not nearly as bad considering the age.



Does that not scream late 60's!



Check out this design.



Although the top dome fits snuggly into the base, I don't think there were ever any metal clips on the sides to hold it together if carried. There are no marks on the side where the clips would have been.

  3. Nice cake cover! Gotta love those late '60s/early '70s harvest themes and colors. I'm hungry for spice cake all of a sudden. :)

  4. Are you serious??? THe whole thing???? You are amazing!! My mom had the pretty blue china you have here years ago. I don't know what ever happened to it.

    WE had over a foot of snow dumped today on us in Colorado- spring is still a bit of the way off for us yet I guess! :( Had to cancer a new Bible study we were starting due to the road conditions- I know God has His reasons!

  5. The cake server was a great find. I remember practically everything in the 70' was either green or brown. Happy VTT

  8. I haven't seen a cake taker like that. We have a very cool aluminum one and it has the clips. Beat up but I love it!!

  9. My mother has something in a similar style and it never had clips. It sat on the counter with cake in it and we called it the humidor. Like the ones you see in diners that are clear, showing off the pies and cakes.
