Collecting

Do you collect anything? If so, what? And what about it appeals to you?


I collect certain vintage Scandinavian enamelware bowls & pitchers. Specifically by Catherineholm, Dansk, & Finel. There are certain colours/patterns that I prefer over others.

There is something about the bowls and pitchers that really appeals to the domestic side of me. They have this beautiful, 'days gone by' feeling to them that is just fanstic. The bowls are glossy, smooth, and just the perfect weight. Painted enamel itself is not something that it typically done now a days, so it is just really special.

I also have a similar appreciation for vintage pyrex.. but pyrex is generally easier to find than vintage scandinavian enamelware, and also cheaper, so it doesn't appeal to me quiiiite as much.

Here is a photo of a collection similar to mine (photo found on pinterest)::



Personally, I do not (yet?) collect the cookware. I'm only interested in bowls & pitchers at this point.
