Garage Sale Find: Decorative Copper Turkish Plate

I found this gorgeous copper Turkish decorative plate at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago, I think I paid $2 for it. I am absolutely in love with it, which is a good thing, since it is on my nightstand table, lol. It even has aqua in it it which goes with the aqua walls in my bedroom. There are no markings on it, but the lady told me it was from Turkey and I would guess that it was also hand-painted. It's just so beautiful, at least, to me it is, and for $2, wow!



I do have a fondness for Euro decor, as you can tell by the embellished lamp sitting next to the plate. Since Turkey is both in Europe and Asia (Thanks, "Where In The World Is Matt Lauer?", for that geography lesson!), I guess that this plate can count as Euro decor, whatever you call it, I call it pretty!What goodies have you found lately?

Hi Bella,
What a great find! It's very unusual and unique.

I bought a few things this weekend...will post one day this week. Nothing as unique as your tray!

Oh, that plate is just gorgeous! I don't do garage sales because that would mean getting up early on a weekend and actually showering! LOL

That plate reminds me of those patterns they tell you to stare into when you need to relax. I forgot what they call them...but they gave me one at a childbirthing class when I was pregnant! Very pretty!

Shelia said...

That is really pretty. I never find really pretty items for a great deal. But I love yard sales so I haven't given up yet!

Maybe next weekend I'll get to go and have great luck like you. :)

Great find on that plate Bella, it looks beautiful by your lamp.

Bella, check this out for a website that sells these plates:

http://www.cafeanatolia.com/category_s/4.htm

You made out quite well by paying only $2 for it! It really is quite beautiful. In fact it's even prettier than any that this website sells.
