Some Nifty Finds From Recent Times As Well As Earlier This Summer. A Couple Salem Biscayne Pitchers And A Mexican Handmade Bird. Status: Mystery.
I forgot all about the mixed metal bird art. I picked up the larger Biscayne gravy pitcher a few days ago and the smaller cream pitcher has been hanging around here for a while. Time I blogged about 'em all, wouldn't you say?
The bird here is a bit of a mystery. It looks for all the world like a Los Castillo piece but the mark on
bottom is different. What gives? I saw one of these in Chicago at the Randolph Street Market flea
with a $225 tag hanging off of it. I failed to take a photo of the mark on the back of it but I assume it
looks more like this one than mine. After spotting it at the Randolph flea I remembered seeing this
one at the Wentzville flea back here at home. I went back to the Wentzville flea about 4 times before
I finally found the vendor with it again! Problem is, what's the deal with the mark on the back of
mine?! Is that Posiedon on there?
I have a soft spot for the Salem Biscayne. I've got tons of it...well, at least hundreds of pounds of it!
Any time I find it cheap it comes home with me. One day I'll start making setting of it and maybe
offer it up in the booth. The pattern kinda reminds me of something Charles Schultz might have
