Vintage Thingies Thursdays #5

Welcome Back!

As I mentioned last Thursday, I would showcase the antique hutch, which is a part of a set with the dining room table and chairs.
My grandmother passed them down and they were the only set I remember her using.
She always kept table pads on (and a tablecloth) and I still use those pads.
In the hutch, were Snicker's bars, and every so often I would get one as a treat!
She also kept her good chinaware in there and there is a lined drawer for the silver.
(Click on any pic to enlarge)


I really love the smell of this hutch! It still smells good inside the cherry cabinets!
(note* my VTT clock from last week is sitting in top)

Here is a peek inside the lined silver drawer...

And inside the cupboards...

This table is cherry wood also, and has 2 leaf pieces.
(I took the table pads off so you could see how it looks)

Here are the original table pads. They are nearly falling apart- but I cover them with a tablecloth and just love how they have protected this table for years!

Here is the whole package...

Now head on over to Lisa at Confessions of an Apron Queen and see the others and their fabulous antiques! Thanks for stopping by!

Those are great items. I thought the dining set was Tell City, but I can not really tell. Love the hutch. What a treasure.

Isn't it amazing how well those table pads protect tables? I have one with I think the same pads. The tabletop is pristine, even after all these years.

Remember the Presto Cooker? My mom probably bought the first one on the market back in the 50's. For those who haven't seen one, it cooks everything in one pot using only steam.

Enjoyed your post. The hutch reminds me a little of ours. We bought it in about 1970. I hadn't thought about it being vintage, but guess it is. Come to think of it, a whole lot of my stuff is vintage. I'm vintage too.
Thanks for sharing and thanks for visiting my blog.

The hutch is really beautiful! Love the dark wood.

That furniture is in great shape! I love a hutch on top of a buffet, it gives both storage and serving space!

The smells...somehow I convince myself that the smells are little ghost offerings of those that used these old things before. Very nice.

My Nana used to keep gum in her hutch. I can remember my sister & I sneaking in there to get it! Gorgeous hutch. What treasures.
