Weekly Thrift Report: Worth The Wait

A wine tasting trip To Temecula Valley Sunday afternoon, some hard-to-clean finds, and then a freelance baby shower invitation assignment held up this week's thrifting report. I took more pictures than usual to make up for it!

First up, the big reveal:

Yaaayyy, look at it all!
And now, in no particular order:

I picked up three of these beautiful Denby Cotswold dinner plates in great condition save for marks from prior use.
I found these two little tumblers with the most amazing geometric design.
A nice little Marimekko by Pfaltzgraff USA mug.
Janel spotted this peanut-shaped Melmac ColorFlyte platter by Branchell
I usually pass over Mikasa stuff, but this Sandstone serving tray designed by Bob Van Allen was the right price and too nice to leave behind.

This is a great medium-sized unsigned mixed-metal dish with a nice symmetrical organic shape.. We have others that are made in Mexico. This piece tested the limits of my DIY photo studio–can someone say "hotspots"?

Here's a detail shot of a big Nambé stainless steel candlestick. Check those sexy curves!

These Pyrex milk glass teacups with gold and gray bands at the rim look so good stacked.

I love the pattern on this large heavy Rosenthal serving tray. I haven't identified it yet, but it's similar to designs for Rosenthal by Raymond Loewy. UPDATE 10/25/13: Its the Silvana pattern by Raymond Loewy for Rosenthal.

We love coupés, and had to pick up a set of four with this etching of a stag.

We received this burlwood turned bowl with some skull-like knots as a donation. Janel found the wizardy blue-tinted quartz cluster.
I almost forgot this set of seven turned brass candlesticks Janel found. Don't they look great together?
