Curiouser and Curiouser

This weekend, we loaded up the car and headed south, leaving the snow behind, to visit with my in-laws.  Now, in our family, my mother-in-law is the queen of the garage sale/thrift shop/antique store.  Hunting for interesting vintage goodies is always on the “to-do” list when we go for a visit, and this weekend was no different.

Well, except for one thing.  I’ve been mulling over the idea of adding some vintage items to my Etsy shop – things to put atop my tablecloths and runners.  So, this weekend, I headed out with purpose.  I’m pleased to say that I came home with a creamer and a coffee pot/creamer/sugar bowl set.  All of these pieces were made by Eschenbach.  This was a German company that started production in 1916.  It was absorbed into another company, which also now includes Winterling, Triptis, and Freiberg, back in 1995.  Unfortunately, the Eschenbach Porzellan Group, as it is now called, has no information on patterns prior to 1995, so I am still trying to find out a little more information before listing the pieces.  But keep your eyes peeled, because there are more tempting goodies on the way!
