Thrift store treasures- Vintage decorative pottery

This week I found an old ornament that reminds me of coloring books from the 70’s/early 80’s. It was marked .69 cents but it was a half off day so it ended up costing even less. On the back was marked Ceramica Del Convento Aracena.

I loved the little leaves and textured circles that were on the dress of this ornament. When I looked online for similar items there were a few on Etsy priced $10-$15 depending on the size and style.


This piece has a nice feel to it and is well made. The colors are so 70’s with the green and orange everywhere.

I have not been able to find out anymore history on the company but I did learn that these vintage pottery pieces come from Spain.


I haven’t decided yet if I will keep this one or not. Sometimes I tie little treats like this to my gift packages with a pretty bow I make by hand. It  kind of reminds me of a gingerbread cookie with the color and shape of it.


Has anyone else come across this pottery while hunting vintage items?. I would love to know more about the history of this piece if you have. Happy vintage hunting everyone.

  1. So cute! I never saw any vintage pottery in Singapore though 🤔


  2. Thank you. I see tons here in the states. There is even handmade pottery from Japan here but I am still learning about collectables. Lots of really beautiful hand painted plates.

    1. That’s is sweet Mel, you get it. Imagine all those little things from the past that were tossed. I have a cousin who just got married and his wife ‘s and loves anything Vintage from the 70’s and 80’s. Her favorite color is orange. If I don’t keep it, it will be going to them. She always loves the little owls I find out there.

        I like to keep old things, some because of its beauty, some because of the sentimental reason. She sounds like a great candidate to earn it 😀

  4. It’s so pretty! I would have a tough time deciding between keeping it or giving it away.
    Actually, I would be inclined to replicate it. 🙂

    1. I do that, I will see something out in the world that will inspire me to create a replica of it. I tried with my Vintage Halloween post I did. It never comes out like the original but I sure have fun trying to make it. I am much better at just free hand imaginative things I come up with out of the blue. It’s always gets a laugh though to share those nail it moments.
