2nd Time Around: Cow Creamers

Welcome to 2nd Time Around. Please join us by linking a post that features something that is a 2nd Time Around to you…something from a garage sale, flea market, thrift store, estate sale, etc. Please link your post rather than your blog, and link back to this blog. Thank you for participating.

 

This picture is one of the cow creamers that I’ve found while shopping for my Etsy shop and antique booth. This one is a little large, but so cute! It is the size of a milk bottle. I usually buy cow creamers when I find them, because I’ve sold two on Etsy-in fact my first sale was a cow creamer!

Recently I passed up one at an estate sale like the one in this link:

It was priced at $12.00 and I thought that was too much! I wonder now if it was like the one in the link! Guess I’ll never know! LOL

Next time I run across one from Germany, I think I’ll take a chance on it. :)

I always look at those cow creamers because I remember my grandmother having one. As a child it always fascinated me when the cream would come out of the cow's mouth. I wonder if my grandmother's was from Germany? I wouldn't be surprised. There's no way I'd spend $85 on something the cats might knock over. Sometimes I have to be practical. :)

Hello Ms Diane :)
I had to do some research for a client who was putting a bid on one of these and the fist site I found was http://www.swanseaheritage.net/article/gat.asp?ARTICLE_ID=91

They won their bid...and thanked me for helping them get some much needed information.

My young grandson calls our cows MooMamas... lol...

I may have to look for one of these cute pitchers and see if doesn't find them as delightful!

Cool Cows!
The one in the link was nice, but the creamer in your pic is priceless. I would crack up every time I saw it.

Thanks for hosting!

How unique, Diane, and I love that picture of Drew Brees and his son from your post yesterday. It is absolutely priceless and one I know his family (and Baylen, when he grows up) will treasure forever.

Good morning Diane. Don't pass up anything made in Germany if the price is not terrible. A rule of thumb. Germany made things are a quality collectors love. I love this cow creamer. It is a treasure. I love reading about your new adventure in selling. I miss it very much.
Sell, sell, sell. Smiling big.

Hugs, Jeanne

Diane, This is a super cute cow creamer! Very unique! I have a small white cow creamer on etsy. Lots of lookers, but no buyers so far! :)

Thanks for hosting this event! I look forward to it each week. Wish I could have participated last week, I love milk glass. ~hugs, Rhonda

I believe I've seen those cow creamers at estate sales and yard sales. I didn't know they were so valuable. Hmm
