The holiday season is upon us, and what better time to take a trip back to yesteryear with our seasonal antiques? Christmas antiques are often treasured family heirlooms and reminders of holiday gatherings from years past. As we celebrate the season with family and friends, these antiques serve as conversation pieces, and they make the festivities even more meaningful. Today, we’ve rounded up five of our favorite reader-submitted holiday antique photos. Look out for more featured holiday antiques posts in the coming weeks, and upload your own photos to the Dusty Old Thing Facebook page for a chance to see them here!
from: Bridget Borchert: “I bought this cute set of Christmas glasses and sent them to my daughter in Philadelphia. There are 7…all different. Missing 1 to have a complete set. By Federal Glass Co.”
from: Linda Crook: “From Linda Crook: This is a photo of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer that belongs to my husband. His mother told me he has had it since he was a baby. He was born in 1949. I display it every Christmas so our grandkids can enjoy it.”
from: Nancy Kirk Starnes: “This is my favorite Christmas stocking. It is needlepoint lined in red velvet, made by an aunt years ago. I don’t see much needlepoint today, maybe someone still does it. Thought I would share it before I put it up until next year.”
from: Jim O’Hern: “A Christmas card that was sent to my Grandmother in 1921.”
