Syroco Wall Plaques

Last month, my sister convinced me to go with her to an antique mall about an hour south of us. I expected to find a rinky dink, kind of place, with nothing good. Wow, was I ever wrong! Good stuff abounded everywhere!

I found these two wall plaques that I thought would look great hanging in my bedroom.

They're approximately 15 inches long.

The Victorian styled plaques are molded from plastic. They're made by the company, Syroco, originally based in Syracuse, NY. I'd probably date these to the late, late 60s - mid 70s.

Another item that I found was this scrap of material. I love fabric with vintage themes and people scenes.

The colors are a perfect match for my living room, so I'll be turning this into a pillow for the couch or one of the chairs. I just need a quick trip to the fabric store for the backing and then I'll be all set!

Thanks so much for visiting today!

I'm linking up to The Colorado Lady for Vintage Thingie Thursday.

Great decorative. Hope you post what they look like in place! I love toile as well...have toile curtains in the dining room. Happy VTT!

Most of the antique malls I visit have really nice stuff. I go often and look, but try not to buy. I have more antiques laying around than I need now.

Very pretty plaques! I love the thrill of a new antique shop/mall, especially when it's a good one! Visiting from VTT.
