Vintage Monday–Easter Decor

Welcome to Vintage Monday!  Today I’m sharing some of my Vintage Easter Décor.

Vintage Monday - Sharing Unique Vintage Things

If you missed last week, I shared my dad’s 1942 copy of The Tale of Peter Rabbit.  You can see all of my Vintage Monday posts here.

Can you believe that Easter is on Sunday?  Even though Easter is later in April this year, somehow it sneaked up on me!

 

Large Decorative Egg

The first vintage Easter item that I’m sharing is this decorative egg.  I found it long ago in an antique shop in downtown Roanoke and enjoy displaying it every Easter.

Mr. SP made the stand for this egg and it works perfectly to keep up upright and secure.

I have no idea of the age of this egg.  If I had to guess, I’d say it is between 75 and 100 years old.  If you have information about it, please share!

Roseville Child’s Bunny Plate with Cup and Saucer

These Roseville dishes were given to my grandmother when she was a child.

Granny marked many of her things so that those who inherited them would know their story.  This set is nearly 100 years old.

Oneida Melamine Peter Rabbit Dish Set

This Peter Rabbit dish set was given to my brother by my grandmother in the early to mid 1970’s.  The set also has a cup and Peter Rabbit spoon both of which I have but didn’t use in this display on my porch.

I had the same set but mine was Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  That set is in my basement and since it isn’t seasonal, I never use it for décor.

 

German Paper Egg

My brother and I both had an egg like this that we put in our Easter basket each year.  The Easter bunny would fill it with candy on Easter morning.

Mr. SP and I made the brass hook that holds this egg upright to display my P. Buckley Moss ornaments after Christmas.

This is the inside of the egg.  The text says, “Container Made in Western Germany.”

Blue Ridge Pottery Lamb Plate

This lamb child’s plate was my dad’s and most likely dates from the 1940’s.Blue Ridge Pottery Lamb Child's Plate - virginiasweetpea.com

 

It’s a Blue Ridge piece from Southern Potteries.  My grandmother had a lot of this and for a time my mother collected it.  You can see some of the plates from her collection here.

Chick Egg Cup

This egg cup belonged to my grandmother.  It’s not marked and I don’t know its age, but it sure is cute.

Mrs. Leland’s Candy Tin

Many years ago Mama found this candy tin in her basement and passed it along to me because she knows that I love Easter décor.  Based on the age of tins like this one that I found while doing a quick on-line search, I believe it to be from the early 1960’s.

In the early 1960’s my dad was in college and my mom in high school.  If I had to guess, I’d say that my grandparents ate this candy and the tin later arrived at my house bearing nails or screws or maybe candy that my grandmother made.

Fenton Art Glass Rabbits

A few years ago I shared a collection of Fenton rabbits that my friend’s grandmother collected.  You can see all of them here.

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my Vintage Easter Decor.  I love Easter and will admit that I won’t put it all away immediately after Easter.

What about you?  Do you leave your Easter décor out after Easter Sunday or do you put it away immediately?

  1. Love your Easter decorations, especially the Roseville set. My grandmother marked special things the same way – invaluable information for future generations. We have a German egg just like yours, they might still make them. I put up an Easter “tree” every year and hang hand painted eggs, mostly from Austria, on it.

    Happy Easter to you and yours!

      I’ll bet that your Easter tree is so pretty!

      I think that they still might make those German eggs. My mom and I were in an antique shop on Saturday and we saw some very large eggs with Peter Rabbit on the outside. The inside had patterned paper, like mine, and said “Made in Germany.” These eggs were definitely not antique.

  2. Wow! What an awesome collection of Easter things! I love that paper egg. So neat!

      Thank you! I have fond memories of that egg. I loved opening it on Easter morning to see what candy was inside.

  3. I love it all! I think my favorites are the paper egg and the dishes. I’ll be lucky if I put away my Easter stuff by May. lol. I just managed to get it all out last week.

    I enjoy your blog! You wanted information on the glass egg. I have one that belonged to my mother-in-law. Mine has Easter written on it and is in a handmade woven basket. She won her egg as a young child (born in 1927) in a Bible verse contest at her church. Maybe that helps you determine the age. If you here of where it was made,etc. I hope you will share with us on your blog. Thanks

  5. Oh my – my mother inherited those same eggs in your first photo. My sister has them now. I think it’s time to do a little googling to get the story.

    • Sweet Pea says:

      I do need to Google those eggs. I’m thinking they are nearly 100 years old.

      Be sure to stop by our dock if you are boating around the lake!

      • I did some googling and they are definitely 100 or older as they were popular in Victorian times. They are described as hand-blown milk glass, hand-painted. I did not find any explanation of their origin, manufacturer, use, popularity, etc. Like most things I managed to inherit, they are not particularly valuable selling on eBay And Etsy in the $9-$14 range.

        We are at the lake all week and hope to make it up your way.

        • Sweet Pea says:

          Thanks for looking up information on the eggs, Wendy. I also didn’t inherit anything of much value but I still love my old stuff!

  6. The lamb plate stole my heart! Have a wonderful Easter!

  7. I love the Roseville and the little lamb plate! Pinning! Thanks for sharing @Vintage Charm!

  8. Just wanted to let you know your lovely vintage treasures will be featured at tomorrow’s Vintage Charm party!
