COOKIE JAR MEMORIES

I have collected many things in my life, but never was a collector of cookie jars. We had two cookie jars my mother used when we were young, we loved both of them; even more we loved the homemade cookies that came out of them.

I heard about people who have 100’s of cookie jars and never quite understood it. I’m getting older now. I won’t say how old but I remember the walk on the moon, the Beatles, Elvis, and the Herman’s Hermits. I’m starting to find cookie jars very appealing and they make me feel joyful. I like the thousands of different shapes, colors and themes they come in but most of all I like all the history that comes with them. Cookie jars were a hit right from the beginning when they first appeared in the later part of the 18th century in England. Even though they were also called biscuit jars kids and grownups alike loved them because of what came out of them. Before the depression American cookie jars were plain glass jars with metal lids, but in the 1930’s stoneware became popular and the first fun designs and colors were painted floral or leaf decorations.

Childhood was a fun and special time in our lives and never did we feel so special as when mom or grandma gave us a cookie from our favorite cookie jar. We always knew that we were loved and very special.

It is amazing how a piece of pottery or glass can make such strong memories for us. Every time I see a cookie jar I have to smile. I remember all the special treats I received and think about how great my childhood was. If there are cracks, chips or missing paint, the memories are still vivid. Even if the top is broke or missing your special cookie jar can be used as a planter and will still keep your special memories.

Begin your own cookie jar collection and start your own memories for your children and grandchildren to smile about, and you will be able to smile too.

Victorian Metal Picture Frames

 

Victorian Metal Picture Frames

By Marc Washicheck

I was walking around my shop last week looking at all the new arrivals the antique merchants at Cherry Hill have added, and discovered some wonderful Victorian frames. I was fascinated at their different designs – from very plain to extra fancy.

Victorian frames were made between about 1895 – 1920 and were usually made from solid brass or other metal with brass plating. Some have very ornate designs which include flowers and leaves, figures, or even Art Nouveau. The most collectible are the ones with WWI soldiers. Sometimes you`ll be lucky to find frames where the stands have broken off and have been soldered back on. I love antiques that have been fixed in a “make do“ way. Back then people would fix broken items any way they could with whatever they had on hand. It shows the frame has been used, loved, and has some history behind it.

Victorian frames helped to enhance the splendor of a Victorian home. They could be found in every room but were especially present on mantels, pianos, and dressers grouped together to show off loved photographs at their best. These frames are becoming very popular again, even after 100 years, but are still very affordable. Today`s uses are still as photograph frames, but are also being used for paintings, mirrors, and dried flowers. These gems are not only being seen in country, cottage, shabby chic, and of course, Victorian motifs, but due to their uniqueness and the metallic-look, also in the modern and industrial eclectic-styled homes.

Finding something new in my store is so exciting to me. It feels like Christmas. I love to look in every nook and cranny and I`m thrilled to discover an old, unique, odd, or artistic treasure. When shopping antique stores make sure you shop every inch. You don`t want to miss that special item that will find a new life in your home, and will make your live complete.
