This little porcelain dog figurine holds a note in our window to remind everyone and y'all to pre-order Thanksgiving and holiday flowers. Those are pots of narcissus bulbs (paperwhites). In Greek mythology Narcissus fell in love with his reflection in a pool of water and, not able to connect with his image, pined away and died. When the nymphs went to burn his body there was none, instead a white sweet-smelling flower grew in its place.
This is a small maid of honor bouquet with peach garden roses, bouvardia and seeded eucalyptus. Below is a set of peach lusterware on ebay. My favorite way to search on ebay is by color. Peach in "antiques' yielded this sweet set (I'm looking for the creamer though) along with a terrific canning jar with an original 'Brandied Peaches' label.
