I never got a chance to post the rest of the photos from our junking trip last Saturday. It was quite a day. Here are a few more of the finds from that trip:
Prettily shaped silver pitcher and a beaded purse made in Japan were two of my favorites, and won't be on eBay :). The little purse is covered in fake pearls that have mostly lost their covering but it has such a nice heavy feel to it, and it's lined in satin. I'll use it for an eyeglass case.
This guy I could use some help with. I think he's just been made to look old and is probably plastic or resin. On the bottom he's marked KINA. I really like the way he looks and feels, and I would like to know a little more about him. I think he might be a Japanese figure? If you have any ideas, I'd love to hear them. I am pretty sure he's not ivory, but it would be cool if he was made of bone. I tried the hot pin test but it didn't even begin to melt a little hole like it should if he was plastic, but still I don't really think he's old. Any ideas?
Shenango china? A mustache cup that's already sold on eBay, some lovely linens, a little lusterware pitcher, a silver cake server, some books that I'll be selling in my Amazon bookstore and a few other things. It was a good day.
