If you have been following my posts, you probably noticed that I am enjoying red and white enamelware. It reminds me so much of our farm days as we used some of these exact items on our farm and I wanted to make sure I included them in my latest red and white enamelware display!
YouTube video of this display:

January 2023 Update:
I have also added some new items recently, which you will find at the bottom of this post.
Back to my original post:
I recently went home for family events and was able to spend a day thrifting and picking some additional items for my displays. So fun and a much needed diversion 🙂
I found quite a few red and white enamelware pots and bowls such as these below. This is one of the boxes of treasures I brought back 🙂
Here is the first picture of the new display with the new red enamelware pots, including the large pot at the back with the lid. I had the double boiler and coffee creamer already.
Another new bowl in the middle of the pile, with yet another pot and lid below 🙂 I also got a free red book labelled ‘Manitoba’ as the local museum had a ‘free’ pile.
I was shocked they were selling this very white coffee pot on the lower shelf below. The one I already had above was more of an off-white color, so I was very happy to find the new red and white enamelware coffee pot. In the picture below is also a new red and white plate that I found at a local thrift shop. I think we travelled to 2 thrift stores and 3 antique shops in 4 neighboring towns and then we even visited one farm who had an ad on the local marketplace. Not bad for one day!
Here is another view of the top right side of my hutch display.
And another view from the left with more red enamelware pots:
I love combining the red enamelware with all the pretty crochet and needlepoint, such as these vintage pot holders and this recipe box of my aunt’s. These would be so lovely in a red enamelware kitchen or red farmhouse kitchen!
Again a close up with those items…
And then of course there are the other farmhouse kitchenware items in red, the rolling pins, the potato masher (slightly hidden, sorry) and spice spreader.
Red and White Enamelware Display
Here are a few more pictures of the full display of my latest vintage red and white enamelware. This one is the middle of the display.
Here is the top part of the display.
And here is the full red and white enamelware display in my white hutch 🙂
I didn’t even have room for my red vintage cannister set! Oh no! If you want to see that you might want to view my previous red and white vintage kitchenware display here: My New Farmhouse Hutch. Or go to the next post in this series: Christmas Red and White Enamelware.
2023 – January Update to Red and White Enamelware
I had fun putting together my Christmas Display link in previous paragraph. However, all good things must come to an end. So I took down all the Christmas decorations right after Christmas. Of course I had time on my hands to do a bit of thrifting since then. And oh, by the way, my son bought me this lovely red and white enamelware dipper as a Christmas gift. I was surprised he went for it because sometimes the shipping is more than the item. Well anyway I was pleasantly surprised! We used this kind of dipper on the farm with our drinking water bucket. Everyone shared drinking from the dipper. No wonder living on a farm makes your immunity is so high!
The other new item in the picture above is the matchbox holder. I mention it in my Christmas post. I found it on my trip home this summer as I have been looking for one for awhile, similar to what we had on the farm. These are so useful, I really don’t understand why they aren’t made anymore. We now have it handy when we want to light a fire and we always know where the matches are. Great for when you have a power outage too. I think I need to find another one for our cabin!
I found another red and white enamelware basin at a local 2nd hand store. It’s funny cuz it seems there aren’t as many 2nd hand stores as there used to be. This one was quite large and I found it after rooting around for awhile, the owner didn’t even know he had it. I have put it behind this large handled pot. I moved my double boiler set up to the 2nd shelf.
I have a couple of routes I take to do my thrifting every couple of weeks. It gets me out of the house and I enjoy finding some treasures if there are any to be had. On another recent trip I found another red handled rolling pin. It does seem that the pickings are getting pretty slim!
However, I did find this red and white enamelware coffee pot in the picture above. It was part of a sale of black and white enamelware on the local online market. Unfortunately it is missing the lid though. Oh well, it must be around these parts somewhere! I now have another item to look for on my hunts. It is surprising how many thrift stores carry boxes of pot lids. So if you are missing a lid for any pot you might just find one there!
These coffee pots are so sweet, I am glad folks are enjoying seeing them.
A few more pictures
Here’s a few more new pictures of the display, this time with the vintage cannister set, another red handled rolling pin, the new basin, dipper, and matchbox holder!
I added a chippy chair beside this display. I had to display my mother’s Karjalan (Finnish) tablecloth likely handed down over the years.
Here is the new full display:
I hope you enjoy these vintage displays as much as I do putting them together! If you would like to leave a comment on this red and white enamelware display, please do! Til next time!
