Vintage Christmas

I got a few items out to display for decorations anyway. I went to get some Christmas items to use in  the kitchen I had in my storage room however after digging around I noticed a few things I had forgotten about so decided to use them in a little vignette .
I love these old Christmas tins. I think I got them both at the same estate sale. One is a Henry Clive tin.This is the lid i'm showing you.

Henry Clive
Once when I was in Portland Oregon I went to an antique show there and a lady had this same tin on display and she is the one told me who Henry Clive was etc & that the tins were from the 1920's. I got it at an estate sale of a younger gal here in town who owned Gail's Chinatown. I am sure that is why she had this tin with the little china doll on the tin


Then I have this old tin I got an same estate sale and I loved her face it reminded me of Charles Dana Gibson girls . I didn't realize for sometime that her white fluffy fur around her neck was a dog . This is the lid of the tin I bet a fruit cake came in it years ago.

Gorgeous I think

See Her fur collar with the Dog in it? 

Anyway I am getting a few things out  

Linky parties 


  1. Great vintage Christmas trays! I love all things 'vintage!'

  2. Those tins are amazing...I've never seen any like them before! Beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I love those old Trays. What wonderful old pieces of art they are. I used to have a Coca Cola Christmas one but gave it away years ago. wish I had it back- xo Diana

  4. Wow, love your tins! Such detail, I have a collection of vintage ones but nothing like that! Love your little tree to!

  5. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I did, finally, get my tree up in the living room yesterday and will "putter" at adding a few more things now.

  6. We've never seen that first tin pretty...and we didn't even notice the dog ~ lol!! We had an old santa tin and a fun stripped one that we sold this week in the store...of course after they left we were like "awwww....maybe we should have taken that one home" ~ lol!! Oh well....we'll just have to search all over ha!

  7. These are so pretty! I've never seen them before. I love that sort of thing. I think the fur is not a dog but a fox like a fox stole.

    1. I think your wright a white fox stole wrapped around her.
      These are very unusual I love them

  8. Oh goodness those tins are adorable. The faces are so sweet!

    I am loving the holidays and enjoying every bit. This year I am really taking it in and being thankful...
