HAND PAINTED ANTIQUE PORCELAIN

Thursday, July 11, 2013

Why am I drawn to these things? 
While many homes are being embellished with pretties from Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware and the like, I am drawn to those things my Granny would have loved!  Oh well, when I saw these two hand painted antique porcelain switch covers at the antique mall, I had to get them.


I’m replacing these brass switch plate covers with
Brass Switch Plate Cover


this one in the downstairs guest bedroom…
VINTAGE PORCELAIN SWITE PLATE COVER


and this one in the hallway.
PORCELAIN SWITCH PLATE COVERS 

Old fashioned, but pretty aren’t they!
Love your sweet comments, sure hope you’ll leave one!
Blessings,
Cindy
Hope you'll hop on over for AMAZE ME MONDAY!

  2. No way old-fashioned for me, I say, 'classics'. Follow your heart Cindy, you've done wonderful so far in your home choosing to put what you love! I too used to be in that 'catalog crowd' but like many, I too have gone to the 'vintage side' and scour thrift and antique stores when I can. :-)

  3. Those switch covers are so pretty, Cindy. We had some in a turn of the century house that I think might have been handpainted by the owner. They were pretty but the ones you have here are gorgeous- xo Diana

  4. Making me miss mine. When we sold our last home, those were forgotten on the walls of the master suite. I regret leaving them there....
    So delicate and beautiful.

  11. Cindy,
    We must be kindred spirits for sure. I love everything about them...and feel the same way about old stuff! I sometimes wish I would have been born in a different era. I guess if I would have, these things wouldn't seem quite so special would they?

  17. They are so pretty. In France, they changed a few electrical "norms" as they always do and so it's very difficult to install those old switch.

  19. I love details; like in our cloths, the accessories are the best. We had these pretty electrical outlets in our girls's feminine rooms in our past home. Thaks for the sweet and kind comment. Enjoy your weekend.
