A Few of My Favorite Things - My lusterware!

My Lusterware!

I'm not quite sure what made me start collecting lusterware. I suppose I would see just a few pieces in
antique stores, but not a lot. Then Mary Engelbreight had a very nice collection featured in one of her books about her home.
The salt and pepper shakers were pieces I blogged about recently and as I learned today from a little research were probably not made in Japan as all of my other pieces were.

In case you are wondering about the framed pieces the top one is a Buzza print titled "Friendship" and created in 1925.
I think the one in the lower picture might be as well however it is not marked on the back.
I love looking at these pieces.
These are just a few of my favorite things.

Beautiful... Karen, I just love it! Your lusterware is so pretty! Isn't it funny how we start with one of something and the next thing you know, you are collecting them! I love to go into an antique shop with something in mind to look for. It is like a game with me!

Enjoy your Saturday my friend! HUGS!

Your lusterware is gorgeous. You do have some pretty pieces and I love the color. I so agree about how we sometime start a collection by accident. Hugs, Marty

Karen, this is a beautiful collection, and I love the way you've grouped it, but still allowed each piece to stand out on its own. I'm so glad you linked this post to Favorite Things Sat. Have a great weekend. laurie

Karen, lusterware is so pretty. I don't blame you for wanting to collect it. I thought I was already following you, but I wasn't. Am now. My husband graduated in 68.
