Vintage Thingies Thursday - Have a cup of coffee

I'm participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday again, hosted by Colorado Lady. Go visit and see who else is posting their vintage thingies.

I thought I would post a couple of my old coffee pots. This first one is for small gatherings. . .


but, if you are going to have a lot of people over for coffee, you might want to use this one. This enamelware coffee pot is huge and it is stamped on the bottom USN. I would say that stands for United States Navy. I really like this one.


If I'm going to have coffee, I have to have cream in mine, I don't like it black. I have some old creamers to pick from. The first one I got was the Shawnee corn creamer, I love it. I got it at a thrift store a long time ago for only 75 cents. I like the little cows, too. The blue creamer in front was my mother's.



To drink our coffee in, I have some colorful cups and mugs. I love the milk glass ones in the back, the Esso Tiger is on one of them. On the left is a stack of vintage Fiesta cups and on the right are Harlequin and Riviera cups. The little Fiesta demitasse cup in front is colored chartreuse. I really got lucky when I found it one day. I found out when I got home that the 50s colors in the demitasse cups are worth more than the older colors.


So pull up a chair and have a cup of coffee with me. Which cup do you want to use?

  1. I love that first coffee pot, because it reminds me of my grandparents' house, where it seemed there was always a pot on the stove! And your collection of creamers and cups are making this girl very jealous! I'll have my coffee in one of those milk glass ones, with cream and sugar please!
    Happy VTT!

  2. I want to use the Tony the Tiger mug. I only use cream when I am out and want to cool my coffee fast.

  12. I have a couple of old percolator pots like the aluminum one, but not with that great handle. And since I don't drink coffee, I'll have tea in the milk glass with a couple of packets of Splenda. I don't do milk in tea; the blacker the better for me. I have some old fire king restaurant cups and saucers with the green leaves around them. I love them! Thanks for sharing your vintage things with us. They're beautiful! xxoo

  14. OK, so now I'm wanting a old fashioned cup of perked coffee...the best I had was at this ladies house one time, and she served me a warm piece of coconut pie, I did not dare hurt her feelings and refuse the pie because I don't like coconut...but you know what? It tasted really good with that cup of coffee!

    I like it creamed and sweet! ;D

  19. Hi janet,
    I enjoy vintage anything, but those coffee creamer really caught my eye. I have a cow one some where stashed away. lol I remember those coffee pots too my grandmother used to brew coffee in them or should I say boil, she would just let them perk and perk away. Thank you for the memory today.

  21. I love the creamer containers! They remind me of one my great-grandma used to have in her house. Funny how just seeing something like that can remind you of family!

  22. How charming! I'll take the bell shaped green cup. Looks like it's saying, "Grab me and take a warm drink!"

  23. Love all your coffee paraphernalia. My parents still use that top coffee pot, also!

  24. I don't drink coffee often. I would probably pick the blue cup, if I was there having coffee with you. I like a more cream than coffee. Your coffee pots are neat. I wonder where you store all the neat stuff you have.

  25. Janet-I don't know which I like better your coffee pots or your creamers. You have the neatest vintage things!
