Vintage Picnic Baskets and a Coffee Warmer

I only made it to one yard sale last weekend because my daughter was home sick for a couple of days (she’s much better now.). The yard sale was hosted by a fellow antique dealer from my store along with another antique dealer friend of hers so they had lots of good things for sale.

I got a couple of nice old picnic baskets. This one is definitely the oldest.

I also got this pretty green one. It is a Hawkeye Burlington wicker basket with a wood bottom and metal handles.

I also got this interesting looking globe. I don’t think it is very old, it is just made to look that way. It has anice thick, carved wooden pedestal/base. Globes are usually good sellers.

This mirror either came from an old mantle or sideboard. I have it propped up on its side. If it doesn’t sell soon, I will probably bring it home and hang it above one of my doorways.

Here is a close up of  the wood. It is in great condition.

I got a couple of pairs of corbel wall brackets including these white ones and a pair of stained ones I still need to bring to my booth.

This next item is Silex brand ribbed glass, candlelight coffee warmer. It was made in the 1950s. To use it, you would place a lit candle inside of the container, place the lid on it, and then place your cup of coffee on top of the lid to keep your coffee warm. It has three small glass feet to keep the heat off of your tabletop.

I also found these two crystal serving trays. They are in great condition and are a nice medium size.

Well that’s it for this week. I spent the last two days in Alabama at the U.S. 11 Antique Alley yard sale. I found so many good things on this trip. I will share photos of those things next week.
