Little Vintage Pots

When I am at estate sales I keep my eyes open for small kitchen items that can be used in my daughter's play kitchen.  I have accumulated a stash of 1950's tea and coffee pots and figured it was time to clean them up and add them to her play area.  These 2 little coffee pots are aluminum percolators.  One is marked Century and the other West Bend.  They would have been used on a stovetop or over a camp fire. 
 I bet they would still brew a great cup of coffee.

They still have their baskets and stems. 
 I think my husband might grab one for his next camping trip!

And even though this little pot was probably used to store grease back in the day, it will take center stage at our next teddy bear tea party!


  1. Super sweet. You and I share the same weakness. Josie has a huge stash of metal dishes for her kitchen stove (my former wooden stove).

  2. What a great idea! I had a dress up box for the kids and grandkids but not a play kitchen. Super idea! I stopped in to tell you that you have been awarded The Liebster Award! Check out my blog for today, Friday April 13th to read all about it! :-)

  3. I love this idea! My daughter would love it too!
