Vintage Ombre

Long before the current ombre trend began saturating fashion

There was this!



Hidden behind a stash of plastic ware at a thrift store I found this ombre-esque vintage pitcher, stamped "Warwick China."  I can't find much information about this piece or the Warwick China Company for that matter, other than they incorporated in 1887 and went bust in 1951.



Maybe today's designers were inspired by this minty green graduation and saturation of color!

Gorgeous color, one of those things I'd desperately want and have no room for when i got it home. I'm also glad to see someone spelling ombre correctly, LOL!

Didn't we call this the 'faded look' back in the 70's? LOL...it's kinda crazy that this look has transformed into so many areas!

I LOVE those cute little patriotic figurines. Such a good vintage item to help us remember our country's great history!

What a beautiful find! Isn't it funny how beautiful things find themselves to be 'in style' no matter what the decade?
