|1937 John James Audubon book plate $3.00 InkPainter|
I think this book plate is so beautiful with its deep reds and sage greens and grays. This is a large book plate at approximately 10 3/4 x 8 1/2. I love it so much that it might be gone before I publish this post. This Etsy shop has a massive selection of book plates, bottle caps, prints, etc. He also has a large selection of beautiful 3x6 flash cards from the 60's, but if you are interested in the flash cards, I must warn you that they are intermingled with old playing cards, a good many of which depict nude females. You can ignore them as I did--I just didn't want you to be surprised as I was.
|1843 Honey Drainer Fumigating Pipe Book Plate $24.95 Slinky Malinky Cat's |
Know any beekeepers? I do, and I bet they would love this or any of the other great
beekeeping 19th Century book plates which can be found in this shop.Add a simple but beautiful frame and you will have a wonderful gift!
|,Vintage Belleek of Ireland Swan Creamer $38.00 Indie City Vintage|
This graceful creamer measues 4.5" x 3.5." I like the creamy yellow
of the wings and the lovely flowing lines of the neck and eye of
this small piece. The mark on this piece dates it to 1965-1981
|Vintage Bee Skep Honey Pot $24.00 Studio StebbyLee|
What a honey of a pot! How cute is this? A sweet little 5 inch high honey pot.
Dates from the 1930's and is in good vintage condition with no cracks or chips
according to the seller. There is some crazing and mild discoloration
but I personally find that appealing, especially on a piece of this age.
|1930's Color Plate only $7.95 From Lanie's Loft|
I think this would be so beautiful, framed with a ivory mat in a silver finished bamboo frame
and maybe paired with one of the other beautiful book plates that you
will find in this great shop.
|Vintage Bee Brooch $40.00 From MyShiningLights|
I have never seen a more beautiful bee, at least in silver plate with
beautiful turquoise and Aurora Borealis blue Swarovski Crystals. I'm not usually
a huge fan of "insect" or "bug" jewelry, but I am making an exception for this lovely piece.
