Weekend Finds: Vintage Enamel Cup

My only find this last week was this old blue enamel tin child’s cup I bought at a consignment shop. Although it is in less than perfect condition, it had one standout feature that made it a must buy for me. Just looks like a plain old tin cup until you turn it around. Just wait for it!

On the revise side is a chick in a big hurry. So what is it running from? That’s the best part!

I may have a tiny obsession with gnomes and the older it is the better. The colors on the cup are still vivid and bright. It’s difficult to read but it is marked “Germany” on the bottom, which dates it to being pre-WWII. I’m guessing the chick got away by the looks of the gnomes large clumsy feet.

I think it was a pretty good find for $8.00.
