Ironstone Thrifted Finds

Today, we are starting our Thrift Store Challenge again hosted by Tara, Stillettos and Shiplap and Emily, Le Cultivateur

This this is a creative set of bloggers who enjoy the hunt thrifting and I hope you visit each one using the links listed below.

I’m especially excited to share a couple of Ironstone thrifted finds with you today.

Thrifted Finds

Not long after this pandemic started small businesses suffered rather quickly especially in NJ and NY. NJ has been especially hit hard so while on Instagram a shop I follow had two pieces that caught my eye immediately.

What Pieces Did I Find?

First Piece

First, I found this very old ironstone double handled sugar bowl. I have been looking for a piece like this for a while.

After receiving the sugar bowl I did a bit of research and found information about the stamp on the bottom.

J.W. Pankhurst was a manufacturer of stone china and ironstone. They were located in Staffordshire, England.

Then Pankhurst took over the pottery of William Ridgway of Ridgway Potter it’s.

After reading further their pittery was from 185o to 1882 until its bankruptcy and subsequent sale to Johnson Brothers.

This is what makes Ironstone thrifted pieces and other thrifted pieces fun to find particularly when we research abd discover fun facts.

By the way, adding freshly cut Dahlia adds a pretty touch.

Second Piece Found

Later that afternoon I spotted this floral sugar bowl and contacted the store through DM. After I received information and the price I added this to my order.

I’m truly thrilled I brought these into our home and also helped a small business during this time.

Have you ventured out thrifting yet?
