    Recent thrift-store finds.
    More Nippon (pre-1922 Japan) porcelain and some 1910s and 1930s German porcelain (pheasant plate and 'From a friend' cup). I have a set of four plates/saucers for each, along with a Nippon tray to match. There's a salt and pepper shaker set (Nippon) I got too. I thought the salt shaker had dirty salt in it, so I filled it with water and stuffed the cork back in, shaking it up periodically over a period of four days.
    Upon going to dump it out, I realised that the salt was really paper wrapped around the original cork. Someone stuffed it in there and re-corked it. LOL.
    Miraculously, the paper had survived four days of immersion, and so, too, did the writing. It was written in 1963, attributing the set to the writer's first school-teacher. That note hadn't likely been seen in 55 years!

      Nagoya Nippon, Hand-Painted Nippon, Schuman Bavaria (with sugar bowl, too!), and plain Germany.

      Probably should have opened the salt shaker before putting water in it! Lol- Really nice to find these little notes in things- I get them in old books all the time.

      I did, but it was dim and looked like a block of dirtiness. I didn't think a note wrapped around a cork would have been corked inside of it. LOL.
      I found a letter to my family in a book that had been there for almost fifty years without my mother ever having seen it until I one day found it. LOL.

      Thank you, Vintage Lamp. I might even keep them simply for the double story! LOL.
