Just in case last week’s Featured Find of blue & white porcelain wasn’t enough, I have more!

Blue & White Porcelain Coasters Box Vase

To start, here is a set of eight finger or sauce bowls.  Very petite and cute!

Blue & White Porcelain Finger Sauce Bowls

This teapot seems very Delft to me.  The pattern is fantastic.  It is missing the lid, so it makes a great vase!  It is about 5.5″ tall.

Speaking of vases… this little vase would be lovely on a nightstand!  It is about 6″ tall.

Blue & White Porcelain Small Vase

This set of four coasters is adorable.  So tempted to keep these for myself!  They measure 4″x4″, and have little “nubbies” on the bottoms so they won’t scratch tables or slide around.

And, finally, there is this fabulous little trinket box!  Marked with the “double happiness” symbols, it would traditionally be a wedding gift.  There is some discoloration on the inside rim of the box, which is faintly visible with the box closed.  See the photos for details.  It measures 7″x4″.

Pricing details can be found in the SHOP.  Speaking of the SHOP, have you stopped in lately?  Sometimes I sneak things in there without “Featuring” them!

Growing up we had these caned-seat chrome cantilever chairs, that eventually got replaced by something more “country” (it was one of my mom’s decorating phases).  My family holds on to stuff for wayyyy longer than need be.  I would come across these chairs and think “eewww.. so 80’s!”.  Eventually the chairs disappeared.  And now I wish they were still laying around in storage somewhere!

The chairs are Marcel Breuer Cesca chairs.  They are making a comeback!  Here’s some inspiration:

Very minimalist.

The table legs are a surprising mix with the chairs.

Restoration Hardware has a knock-off.

So, maybe this has been a bit of a tease.  I don’t have the Breuer Chair (What??!).  I have a pair of Breuer style stools.

I haven’t seen a lot of these, but I think they’re pretty neat, and would look great at a breakfast counter.  They’re in overall very good condition.  A few light scratches to the chrome at the bottom (I can provide photos if you’re interested).  The caning is in great shape, as is the wood.  They sit 40″ tall at the top of the back and about 24.5″ at the seat.
Available in the SHOP!

I love faux bamboo. I love caning on a chair.  And I love a good barrel back chair (they’re really so comfortable!).  These chairs are spectacular!  This is a special offering out of the Chicago area (sorry DC people!  But I’m happy to provide shipping quotes!).

Bamboo Caned Chairs

These three chairs are in great condition.  They would look fabulous painted (or keep them as is).  A fun cushion would really finish these.  You can purchase them individually, or all three!  More info in the SHOP!
