Pop over to Junque Art to find a list of participating blogs showcasing a favorite vintage collection today.
I have too many collections, but decided to share my vintage Ransburg with you today.
The Harper J. Ransburg Company of Indianapolis, Indiana produced hand-decorated colorful household accessories that were sold in retail outlets across America. The Ransburg Company sold hand-painted stoneware and later hand-decorated metalware from the 1930's through the 1960's.
There are many, many design motifs but you see several examples of the most popular here, Asters.
The tomato red is probably the most common color. I love the jadite green myself.
The hollyhocks design is also a personal favorite.
This design is Water Lilies. Often you will find the cookie jars without their lids as they were usually broken.
You probably guessed, this design is called Daisies. Ransburg metalware was also very popular and you might even have a Ransburg tin in your collection. Next time you are in the antique mall, keep your eyes open. There is almost always some Ransburg to be found.
