I returned from LasVegas early yesterday morning and got home mid-afternoon. After two afternoon naps and a good night's sleep in my own bed I was ready for some junking this morning. My first stop was Nina & Joe's Division Street Antiques because they always have something new to see.
I picked up two beautiful pieces of barkcloth, some hangers and many bits and pieces for art-making.
The phone, wire basket and the awesome enamelware bin are from the VOA. That phone is just begging for a vintage rose in the center of the dial. I talked myself out of the wire basket and set it back on the shelf no less than three times before I finally came to my senses that it was $3.99 and, if I decided I couldn't find a place for it, I could always donate it back. Sometimes I'm too cheap for my own good.
I don't know what the blue bin was intended for but it was clearly used for flour since there is still some left in the bottom. The hinged lid is perforated for ventilation.
I have been researching the mark but so far I have come up empty. If any of you are collectors or know of a good resource, please let me know! It seems awfully big to ship so it will be staying with me for the time being.
This shows the other two marks on the bottom. I am guessing the 30 stands for quarts or liters.
