Kitchenware & Enamelware
Home cooks who love to bake and cook in a unique space with lots of personal touches know that simply by adding some vintage kitchenware and enamelware they can immediately create a wonderful and nostalgic decorative effect. For example, it is easy to find and display a few well-used and loved vintage French pewter or brass pitchers, some vintage canisters, antique rice jars, vintage French enamelware pans or casseroles and other metal or ceramic dishes. These pieces often add a great splash of color as well as that personal touch that makes a kitchen the hearth of the home. Of course they are practical too and can be used in your meal preparation and serving.
Copper is especially popular for jugs, bowls and pitchers. The warm glow, simple Country style and traditional appeal of this burnished metal is timeless. Everyone went crazy for the pots and pans hanging in the Downton Abbey TV show kitchen and that was largely due to the gleam of the copper pans!
If you love very brightly colored and patterned ceramics, then a beautiful vintage Bequet hand-painted pitcher or ginger jar will spice up your space. These festively decorative pieces can also double as a vase for flowers.
We also stock gorgeous new kitchenware from tureens and serving platters to candy dishes, bowls and centerpieces for the table. A hand-painted ceramic soup tureen by Chelsea House is the epitome of elegance with its pretty design of birds and flowers. A traditional urn centerpiece decorated with an acorn motif looks like an antique urn, but it is actually newly hand-crafted in the USA in hand-cast resin which is then hand-painted for a charming finish. Exquisitely painted porcelain canisters look so pretty as kitchenware, with their ornate designs that are timeless but also look completely fresh for today’s home.
