A "New" Vintage Treasure ~ Enamelware Pie Carrier

Have you ever walked into an antique store and a piece "spoke to you"? Something you don't usually collect or even consider buying? That's what happened to me last week at the Salamanca Antique Mall. I usually look for vintage tablecloths, powder compacts, silver, jewelry....but I walked by this vintage pie carrier sitting on an old table in a booth and did a double take.


The shape, the shade of blue, and the GORGEOUS bachelor button flowers....WOW! I had never seen another one like it. I walked past it...but only for a minute or two. I turned around and grabbed it!


I've tried to research it, but no luck. I do believe it's European. It will hold a nice large pie or a small cake.



It's vented in the back.



Has a place for a lock. If I can find I pretty old one, I may just have to use it to keep my son from eating an entire apple pie by himself!
