YesterdaysMemories09    Treasures to Bring Back Memories of Days Gone By

Take a look at this lovely shop & you won't be disappointed.  Iris, known on Etsy as YesterdaysMemories09, has a wonderful collection of Vintage Milk glass, Globes, Corning Ware, Jewelry, Glassware & other vintage goodies you'll want to snap right up!  I love her gift card/tags and personalized address labels. I can't get enough.  Here are a few of my favorites from her shop:

E.O. BRODY Milk Glass Bowl / Compote / Centerpiece. Pedestal. Vintage

E.O. BRODY Milk Glass Bowl / Compote / Centerpiece.  Pedestal. Vintage 568
Milk glass matches any style of dinnerware, is especially great for weddings, and this compote will be lovely used as a wedding bowl for a piece of the wedding cake. E. O. Brody Co. made this bowl from the late 50s to the 80s. The raised pattern encircling the bowl has tulip shapes and lazy leafy branches all around, with tiny raised dots or hobnails as the background. The rim and base have scalloped edges, and the base has a smaller chain of raised leafy branches. Use as a centerpiece of fruit or candles, serve a colorful salad or dessert at formal dinners and picnics, or decorate a bookcase, mantel or desk to display flower or candle arrangements. Give it to a bride, friend, neighbor, co-worker, or that special person who is so hard to find a gift for to enjoy for a lifetime.

Large enough but not too large, measuring 5.5" tall, 6.5" across the bowl, and 3-7/8" across the base. It is in great vintage condition, with no chips or cracks.

1930s Replogle Precision World Globe. 12-Inch. Vintage

1930s Replogle Precision World Globe. 12-Inch. Vintage 405
Replogle started making globes in 1930, and I believe this 12-inch Reploble Precision Globe dates in the 1930s. Wikipedia ( indicates that in 1935 Persia became Iran, and this globe has Iran with Persia in parentheses underneath. It also shows Siam with Thailand in parentheses underneath. Its legend does not list the date of manufacture, but calls it a “REPLOGLE 12 INCH PRECISION GLOBE”. The color of the water is blue-green (more blue than the pictures show) and countries are cream, goldenrod, gray, green, lavender, orange, pink, yellow. The U.S. states are shown in different colors.

This wonderful old globe is featured in this treasury:

There is a 1.5" and a 3.5"-5.5" area where tape apparently pulled off the surface, and a few other smaller areas of lost surface. The seal around the two halves is missing on about half, the metal arm has lost a lot of the gold coating, and there is a dent in the base underneath the globe, with some of the black paint under the globe rubbed off by turning the arm. It wobbles a bit, and I believe it would benefit from a good and careful cleaning and perhaps some polish. If you treasure old globes and do not expect one from the 1930s to be in anywhere-close-to-perfect condition, this globe is for you.
