Vintage Thingies Thursday - Turkey Platter

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

First off, Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. I hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Since this is Thanksgiving day, I wanted to share with you my turkey platter. I got it at a friend's yard sale a couple of summer's ago. She was just putting it out when I pulled up. I went right to it. It was love at first sight. She said that it had been her grandmother's and that they didn't use it any more. I paid $5 for it.

Isn't it beautiful. . .


It is very large, it measures 18" x 14 1/4". I don't have anywhere to display it, it is too tall to fit on a shelf in my china cabinet, so I temporarily put it on this hanger where my rolling pin usually goes to take a picture of it. It is Royal Staffordshire.



I won't be using it today because we will be spending Thanksgiving at my son and daughter in law's house.

Again, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

  2. That is so pretty! I too posted about a turkey platter although mine is much simpler. I just love having it, but I can't find anywhere to display it either because of it's size. Have a nice Thanksgiving!

  9. Hey Janet!

    What a gorgeous turkey platter! It amazes me that some people would sell something so precious like that in their yard sales. I would never sell my great grand mother's punch bowl!

    Hope you are having a great day! Did you vote for Suzanne today? I'm trying to get the word out so she can win! hehehe

  10. Beautiful turkey platter. I have an old one but I paid a lot more than that. I have several turkey motive items. You get the best deals at yard sales.

  11. Hi Janet,
    Well just love that turkey platter. Don't you just love yard sales and thrift stores. Between family hand downs and those places, is where most of my favoite things have come from.
