Show and Tell Thursday

This post was inspired by questions from my dear friend, Elaine @ Pear Tree Log. She was curious about the little pitcher I had shown in my post, "Yes, I'm Still Here".

The Made in Japan, vintage clay pitcher was a surprise treasure, found inside an unopened box I purchased at an estate sale.

When I opened the box, I found everything was wrapped in newspaper dated 1935. Whatever the reason was for storing these items, I can only imagine. I'm just glad they were not willing to part with them.

This covered container was another treasure found nestled in the old papers.

When you replace the top, you can feel and hear how fragile each piece is. It would not take much for the clay to break into little pieces.

Being tucked away in a dark box is probably why the colors have remained so vibrant...lucky me !

  8. Meggie, I am so glad I asked you about the little pitcher! What fun you must have had as you unwrapped each little parcel. I love the basket-weave effect. I also like that sweet little container - just as well it found itself a safe haven with you.
