Who knew a day of vintage prowling would deliver such delightful results?
My sweetie and I were out having a weekend scouting trip through some little Portland, Oregon places that can always be counted on for unique treasures.
To my happy surprise, we stumbled across perfect condition Hall Pottery and Bauer water pitchers. Both appear to be from the late 1930's, according to their marks and my (very imperfect) understanding of pottery periods.
But - wait! What's even better than an armful of Bauer and Hall vintage pottery loot at the end of a swell Saturday shopping adventure? Discovering that those richly glazed pottery pieces are a perfect match for just about every one of our Rustica Gift Talavera pottery pieces.
I snapped a quick photo of my two new-to-me Bauer and Hall tableware additions next to our lushly-gorgeous Aguacate Collection soup and salad bowl.
Oh, the color blending happiness! I love mixing and matching across patterns, time periods and styles. Using these vintage pieces with our hand-crafted Talavera is just another way to enjoy artisan craft on the table - and in life!
So, keep YOUR eye out for color when you shop vintage; you never know when you'll find the perfect piece to accompany your eclectic tableware set.

We can't help ourselves - our tableware is beautiful, but when it's full of home-made Greek Gyros, sighhh.
Here's a delicious recipe featuring a chicken gyro complete with home-made Tzatziki sauce from amazing blog Modern Honey.
We are so happy to be able to showcase our Signature Line of Rustica Hand-Crafted soaps. Vegan bars of luscious, lathering goodness, made from all-organic ingredients. Our family-owned studio in Southern California makes each of these in small batches with all of the love in the world.
