C'est Magnifique!

I love the thrill of finding an item at an estate sale that I have previously admired on etsy, seen in an antique store, or come across while reading the many treasure hunting blogs of my fellow vintage lovers.  This past weekend I saw this handsome fellow at a local estate sale and snatched him up.  I had seen a similar item at the Brimfield antiques fair locked in a display case (so I figured this little guy was worth more than his $8 price tag). 
Plus, he was looking right at me-how could I resist his charms?
As it turns out, my little French friend is an American Bisque 
relish jar from the 1950's and somewhat rare.  
C'est magnifique!

Update: I just added this little guy to my etsy shop.  Stop by and say bonjour!
