An Italian Rooster

Hi everyone!

I told you about getting some wonderful free treasures from my nephews friend’s parents. Well, here is another one. I love to find odd and unusual dishes/serving pieces. And this one fits the bill!

8-11 bargains 036Isn’t that a fun rooster tureen? I love the white and faded redish pink colors and it came with the matching underplate.

8-11 bargains 037This fun serving piece was made in Italy. And it is in perfect condition!

8-11 bargains 038And, of course, I have already used it! It is such a great size. I was just setting the table for dinner and it dawned on me that I hadn’t shared this fun piece.

Another little pretty freebie from the same place is this little creamer.

8-11 bargains 039I used it to hold the gravy for the mashed potatoes.

8-11 bargains 040Lovely redish pink roses and other flowers in the design. 

8-11 bargains 041It is a Spode piece! 

Do you find pretty lone creamers while out thrifting? You don’t have to have the sugar bowl that matches. This beautiful little creamers make a perfect little pitchers for gravies, sauces and even little condiment holders. That is how I use all the lone pretty creamers I find. It is not unusual to see a couple of them on our everyday dinner table filled with pickles, sour cream or olives.

Thanks again Zack for hooking me up with all my fun free treasures!

  13. Those are just lovely pieces. I have to say the rooster tureen would be my favorite, as I have a new affinity for roos, but the little cream pitcher is so sweet.
