Happy New Year to all my blogging friends! Just for you, I found this wonderful old Tuck postcard this past week to wish you and your family much love and happiness in this New Year.
I hope everyone had a fantastic New Year’s holiday weekend! My husband, two youngest daughters and I spent a quiet, but fun, time together on New Year’s Eve. We had a nice dinner and then an evening of playing games while we waited to ring in the New Year.
Since “your” New Year’s postcard featured a cherub and roses, I thought I would continue that theme by showing some of the cherubs I have around my home.
My newest favorite was given to me by my mother. The little cherubs have the sweetest expressions on their faces and the applied roses are so beautiful. In researching the mark on the bottom, I found it was made by Sadek, which was founded in 1936 and is still in operation. One website I read was not very nice in their comments about Sadek wares…doesn’t bother me, I love the bowl and think it’s absolutely gorgeous!
This little bisque cherub was an antique shop find last year. The owner of the shop said she thought it was possibly made in Germany.
A pair of wall plaques made by Ucagco, probably in the 1950’s to 1960’s.
A pin tray with a transfer scene of a cherub and a butterfly and a half (one of the butterflies is missing part of his wings and body).
A cherub sitting on a shoe with more applied roses.
Almost hidden behind a vase is another one of my favorites…a Victorian figural epergne or centerpiece with a cherub.
Last, but not least, is another favorite cherub that I found on eBay several years ago. Actually, I think he might be Cupid with his bow and arrow, but that’s ok.
Well, that’s it for this post. I have a few more, but that’s for another day. Thanks bunches for visiting with me today! I hope you’ll come again soon.
