Fabulous Finds Friday Giveaway: Vintage Roses Aluminum Tray Set

Welcome to February’s Fabulous Finds Friday giveaway! Yay!

I have a love for aluminum. There’s just something about the soft silver color that I find so appealing, and put that together with roses and, well, it’s pretty close to perfect.

For this month’s giveaway I went into my stashes because I have more aluminum finds like this than I could ever possibly use, and it’s time to share the treasure.

Vintage aluminum roses tiered stand, 2 trays, and 7 coasters

These vintage aluminum embossed rose pieces are so pretty. From my research they probably date back to anywhere between the 40s to the 60s.

All were found at thrift stores separately, but when put together them make a lovely set.


12 inch vintage aluminum roses tray

This 12″ tray has a great patina and some scratches, which is to be expected with vintage pieces like this.

I like to imagine who might have used these  trays back in the day.


10 inch vintage aluminun roses tray

Here’s a matching 10″ tray.

I’ve always loved the details in the roses and leaves in these trays, and the fluted edges add a nice effect.


vintage aluminum roses tiered stand 1

This fabulous tiered stand is about 12″ high, and while it has a different embossed roses pattern than the trays I think it goes beautifully.

To give you an idea of size, the bottom tier is just under 10″ across.

Here’s a better view so you can really see the embossed roses.


set of 8 vintage aluminum roses coasters

And to top it all off is a set of 8 vintage aluminum rose embossed 3″ coasters with a lovely edging detail.

As much as I love these pieces I’ll be so happy to send them to their new home. Pretty things should be used and appreciated.

    These Photos brought back some old but beautiful memories from my younger yrs. I am from a family of 11 children and my mother had a couple dishes and a 2 tier cookie dish which she cherished. With 11 children to feed & dress there wasn’t money left to spend on these type of extra items. I have no idea where or how she obtained these few pieces, as I was young but do remember how she cherished them & at all holidays and our birthdays these piece were the centre pieces of our Dinner Table! I Have no idea what ever happened to them, but I do remember birthday cakes, cookies and special desserts were placed on these special pieces and how Happy they made her!. THANK YOU FOR THE MEMORIES…..
