BeSt-Ever!*!*! VinTage Tole Birdies & Cage...

LAST WEEK, while selling my SHaBBies at the 
  Grayslake Antique/Flea Market, I netted
 *~* One-Of-The-BeSt-Ever *~* ViNtaGe Finds
for my personal ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Collection!!!  

The BeSt of EVERYTHING!*!*! 
ViNtaGe...
Italian Tole...
ChiPPy PaTiNa...
Birdies...
Garden Ivy Leaves...
Metal Italy Tag...



 It's not very often that I come across
 ViNtaGe Italian Tole 
with BiRdiEs!*!*!  




I've seen Tole Birdcages before...
I've seen Tole Birds on Sconces/Candle Holders...
I've seen Birds on Tole Flower Lamps...
But I have NEVER seen the combination of both
 the Birdies & Cage together!*!*!








 I LoVe when these Italian Tole Pieces
 STILL RETAIN their ORIGINAL
 Metal -Or- Paper, "Made-In-Italy" Tag... 







For now, this darling Birdie/Cage
 will adorn my hutch filled with some of
 my FaVoRite White Pottery...
**********

Have a good rest of the week...

  3. I love tole, too and birds even better! Great find! BTW, that Redwing white vase with the birds on it? My mom and dad received that exact vase as a wedding present in 1947. I was lucky enough to be given it a few years ago and it's one of my favorite pieces!

  6. I love your blog and findings! I wish I could visit you at the Grayslake flea market, but I'm from Europe. I visited my family in Grayslake twice this year, but always in a weekend without a flea market :s.
