My Precious Vintage Place Card Holders

Many years ago I found a lovely set of vintage place card holders at a flea market in New York. Alas I’ve never used them. Our dinner invitations are of the more informal kind and don’t require carefully laid out seating arrangements. Of course I could employ them in alternative ways, say, to describe different dishes at a buffet table. Unfortunately I usually don’t think of this until after the party is over.

So they sit in their pretty little box wrapped in tissue paper, whence they emerge once in a blue moon to be admired by me. But today their moment of glory has come. I’ve decided to share them with the world – or anyway with those who care to read this blog.

 

I found these vintage beauties ages ago at a flea market in New York.

 

There are actually two different designs: one a winged youth holding a cornucopia, the other a bunch of grapes.

 

I just love the details!

 

Here a close up of the grapes.

 

One of them still has the manufacturer’s label on the bottom.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! Thanks for visiting.  Please sign up for e-mail notification for updates on future posts. Or follow on Instagram, facebook or bloglovin’.
