Vintage Pottery Floral Casserole

Usually I open my blog posts with a family story, but I’ve got nothing this week. This piece of vintage pottery isn’t even mine. Do you see the tears rolling down my sad face?

GotMyReservations Vintage CasseroleMy favorite local antique shop is special — it’s kind of cross between a thrift shop and a high-end decor shop. Janet at Lucky Junk specializes in found items and French Country decor and mixes them together in a funky design style. Her vignettes in the store are gorgeous and always thought-provoking. I’m sure you know that “I can do that!” moment.

Lucky Junk is open twice a month, usually on the second and fourth weekends. Janet posts the schedule on the shop’s web site and Facebook page. She also sells Vintage Market goods including chalk paint and wax. I took a class there this spring.

The casserole is marked Japan on the bottom but doesn’t have any manufacturer’s mark. It was quite reasonably priced if you can’t live without it.

I’m linked up this week with Dawn at We Call It Junkin’ and Christine at Rustic and Refined. Be sure to stop by and say hello — and “like” their Facebook pages as well as Lucky Junk’s page.

    • Janet, I am happy to be able to both support your business and take pleasure in the beautiful pieces in your shop. It’s a win-win!

  1. Hi, Jennie! This casserole reminds me of really great times spent in my Grandmother’s dining room, staring into her wonderful china cabinet with all its precious pieces just out of reach behind the locked doors. (Yes…her china cabinet actually had real locks on each door!) The colors are so nice. You can conjure up in your mind how they must have looked when the item was brand new, but you can still appreciate the muted state because you know the piece as lived! This is really cool!

    • I haven’t bought this piece — yet. Thankfully, Janet at Lucky Junk lets me “check out” pieces to use on my blog and I may have to go back for this casserole.

  2. What a fun shop, Jennie! I’m really envious you have such a fun, creative, and inspiring place to plunk around occasionally. I love that colorful piece, and yes, it would be awesome to create a tablescape around this beauty. 🙂

    • As my husband says, Lucky Junk is full of “my people.” It’s a blessing and I don’t use that terminology lightly.
