Using Ordinary Vintage Objects Such As Old Thermos Bottles To Create An Attractive Collection

Using Vintage Objects As Art

I like the idea of making artsy collections out of ordinary vintage objects. The Seymour Antiques Company in Seymour CT. has always provided me with plenty of inspiration and ideas.

Look how amazing these older thermos containers look when grouped together? The palette is limited to red, black and silver. The simple banded design, popular in 1930s and 1940s housewares is another organizing element making this ensemble were attractive.
