At a recent Auction...
three of these sweet Rooster Cannisters went up for bid.
Two experienced antique dealers & I were the bidders.
The auction was of another antique dealer's wares.
Based upon all this -- knew they were special.
I have only seen these once before -- and drooled over them at
Barb C. @ Simply Iowa's blog (click below, see last post):
Barb C. knows her stuff -- and deals in unique, cool things...
So, again, knew they were special.
So, of course, I lifted my number up in the air -
set my chin -
determined to bring them home.
And home they came....
They were simply meant for a farm kitchen!!
I know these are old -- I know they are fairly rare.
Does anyone know anything else about these?
