Interesting! I am sure all have old things to show, so it may be a lot of answers on this challenge.
I liked your old doll. Funny you still have it.
Thank you for sharing, and have a nice weekend!:)

The faces on those mugs are hilarious. Great old treasures!

Jeanne said...

Wow those mugs are something. What were they thinking with those, are they someone in particular or did they just make them with various faces. Love that bread bowl too.

Sally said...

I love the photos, but my favorite probably has to be the wooden bowl and pin.

Love your choices... that breadbowl is amazing, and I love the mugs and Cupies.

A really nice collection of 'old'. I'd heard of Cupie dolls but wasn't sure what they were, so had to google them. I like the jugs and the bread bowl too. Great photos.

I'm so jealous of your Royal Doulton milk jugs! I see them all the time on Cash in the Attic on BBCA. Those things are HUGE over in England. I think they're absolutely awesome!

Those mugs are ‘Toby Jugs’. They are named after the Character Sir Toby Belch in Shakespeare’s play Twelfth Night.

There is an American Toby Jug Museum in Evanston IL.

I'm not clever I looked them up in Wikipedia. We used to have some but they were probably copies. Seeing them again has brought back a lot of memories...

Jennifer said...
