Collections: Part 1

Collections... most people have a collection of some kind... books, buttons, etc. I have many {small} collections. Nothing extensive, nothing obsessive, but each one is slowly growing. I'm going to share them, one at a time. This time, it's my Peach Lusterware {mini} collection.

The first time I saw a piece of Peach Lusterware, I was in L-O-V-E. It has such a rich color, that shines and moves and catches the light. I love how an everyday dish, such as a casserole dish, can really be a show-stopper with that peach finish. It somehow makes a meal more special.

I haven't been collecting Peach Lusterware for very long, only for a few months, and it is tough to find around here... but I've had some luck. Of the Fire King Anchor Hocking Peach Lusterware, I've picked up a 1 1/2 Qt. divided casserole dish for $1.00, a small round casserole dish with lid for $0.75, two laurel tea cups for $0.20 each, and two custard dishes for $0.15 each. As well, I have a few other Peach Lusterware dishes, a teacup and saucer marked Made in Japan and a lovely sugar (?) container with floral design. I can't remember what I paid for those. Good deals!

Stay tuned for more glimpses of my {many} collections...

  3. A couple of years ago I found a peach lusterware bowl and put it on ebay. I was so happy it didn't sell as I quickly fell in love with it. You're so looks so pretty in it and the beauty is you can pick up peach lusterware for so little. Love your story! Smoochies!
