Small Finds at the Antique Store

Back in January, Susan Branch had a post about some darling bird salt and pepper shakers she had found while antiquing.  Click on the link below to see her post.

Probably every one of her readers wished she had some cute little bird salt and peppers.  Yesterday, my daughter and I were browsing through one of our favorite shops, Covered Bridge Antiques in Mt. Healthy (a suburb of Cincinnati).  Guess what I saw on a shelf at a very reasonable price?

They are about 2-3/4 inches tall, are marked “Japan” on the bottom and have holes with cork inserts.  They are just perfect for spring.

I also found this precious glass basket which is 3-1/2 inches tall, including the handle.

This piece is going to be filled with something sweet and included in an Easter package to a special friend.

It was a good day at Covered Bridge Antiques.

  1. Oh, I love the little basket and the birds are adorable too. So sweet! Thanks for sharing…

    Will you check your link, when you comment on my blog, you are set to no reply and I can’t respond to you…thanks, Linda

  2. It’s terrific that you found such treasures when you went shopping! Hard to choose between the birds and the basket, so it’s good you didn’t have to!

      1. If they are marked “Japan” they should be pre-WW II. I’m thinking early 1940s.

        Looking forward to talking to you tonight. Lillian
