Doodle Doo!

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?

I'm afraid I don't know anything about them except that I love them, and I can't help thinking of how much my Mom would have loved them, AND the ice cream parlor chair they are on!
Enjoying catching up - love the bathroom post!
