I recently went antique shopping at an incredible Antique Store.
There I found 17 high end antique finds that spoke to my vintage heart.
And I thought you would enjoy seeing them, too.
The Oscar & Co. antique store is located in Kirkland, WA.
It’s a stone’s throw away from the waterfront.
The historic building has beautiful details on the outside, as seen in the photo above.
But the best part is inside.
Let me show you what I found.
No. 1 – French Imperial Clock
I am starting with my favorite find.
This clock is similar to what I have been looking for for a while now.
It is part of a set that includes two candelabras.
The candelabras are listed below (No.11).
Look at the details.
Victorians would display a clock and candleholders on a fireplace mantle.
I noticed this trend when watching Downton Abby and other period-piece movies.
The Hollywood Regency antiques I’ve found on Etsy and eBay have rustic brass and are very similar to the one I’m showing you here.
So, if you like this style (like the clock above), check those out.
Hollywood Regency has a lot of things, including:
- Scales of Justice
This antique clock is incredible!
No. 2 – 1920’s Guild Mirror
I was surprised to learn this guild mirror is made out of wood.
It is breathtaking!
This is an example of a piece that can give a room instant style.
I love finding pieces like this when you’re looking to live minimally.
Nothing else is needed in the room.
This has a vintage style all on its own. Love it!
A great addition to my list of high end antique finds.
The price is $1258.00.
No. 3 – Wooden Tool
To be honest, this antique wasn’t anything I’d seen before.
But I love the patina.
It has that old nostalgic wood that is gorgeous!
If you know what it is, please share below.
No. 4 – Small Copper Sauce Pan
This pan is a perfect size for melting butter or making a batch of homemade caramel.
That is the appeal.
No. 5 – Antique Chandeliers
The chandeliers in this shop are the ones that have that perfect vintage look that would be a prestigious addition to any home.
There is something about true antiques that never go out of style.
The Victorian era is unrivaled (in my opinion), and to this day, those of us that appreciate the beauty of antique pieces from that time period know how valuable it is when you find treasure to own.
It is the most rewarding thing to have antiques from that era and enjoy their beauty.
No. 6 – Antique Gold Mirror
Adding a singular mirror like this to a living room, fireside room, kitchen, or dining room is how you can get the Victorian style.
I love combining Victorian and Farmhouse styles together to create a unique cozy, but elegant look in my home.
Putting an ornate mirror like in the photo above alongside some rustic farmhouse sconces, for example, is a way to combine the Victorian and Farmhouse styles.

No. 7 – Antique Wicker Basket with Handle
Finding a wicker basket like this is rare.
I was surprised to see the price of $128.00.
It’s exciting to see what to look for when thrifting and antiquing.
No. 8 – Antique Stoneware Crocks
Are you a fan of Crocks?
This is something new for me since I recently discovered them.
Their history started in the 1700s when they first came from Germany and England.
Knowing if a crock is an antique is to find out how it is made.
The old ones have a shiny glaze, while the newer ones are smooth.
And the imprint on the bottom has numbers or letters.
Something to keep in mind since antique crocks are a huge investment.
No. 9 – Antique White Ironstone Pitchers
I found the jackpot!
There is nothing like holding the real deal.
I had the privilege of holding some of these beauties.
The one on the right on top of the pedestal was the one I purchased.
My collection that I’ve acquired from thrift stores is not even close to a true ironstone pitcher like these.
They are very heavy and about a half to an inch thick.
Another example of the quality from the bygone days.
They don’t make things like they used to.
No. 10 – Heavy Ornate Antique Metal Frames
Holding these frames was an eye-opener.
They were extremely heavy, and the patina was rustic and old.
I think these are brass.
Another high end antique find that was amazing!
No. 11 – French Imperial Candelabras
This is a set of three.
There were two candelabras and a clock.
As mentioned above, these were usually displayed on a fireplace mantle.
I love the ornate look with cherubs on the side.
One of the high end antique finds that I loved discovering at this store.
No. 12 – Antique Wood Cutting Boards
There was a nice collection of cutting boards.
The one I picked up is small.
Which is perfect for quick use.
The price is $78.
Having these on display in the kitchen adds a cozy feel.
The old wood is unbelievable.
It is addicting when collecting cutting boards.
My husband doesn’t understand it.
After all, we only need one or two.
I tend to agree with him.
But when you see a good one, sometimes it’s hard to pass up.
No. 13 – Wooden Antique Juicer
This was a new discovery since I didn’t know wooden juicers existed.
This one is $128.
No. 14 – Small Antique Serving Forks
Proper etiquette many years ago was to know what fork, knife, and spoon were used when having dinner around the table.
Most of us have heard about this.
The shape of the fork, like the one in the photo above, can have different shapes for different uses.
I believe this fork is a pastry fork with three prongs, and the thicker prong is flat on one side.
Getting a few unique forks like this to use for holiday dinners or date nights would add to the experience.
No. 15 – Mini Lion Head Bowls with Spoons
After some research, I learned there are antique lion head bowls and modern ones you can purchase from William Sanoma, for example.
This set is adorable with a matching spoon.
If you like these, here is a link to a set of four lion head bowls from Amazon.
No. 16 – Antique Silver and Mother of Pearl Dinner Knife
I believe this knife is from the 1930s.
I’m linking a modern 20-PC set that is similar here.
It’s fun looking back to bygone days to get inspiration.
No. 17 – Antique White Porcelain Old Paris Vase
This is in excellent condition for being an antique.
I believe it is from the 1940s.
The price is $68.00.
These antiques were a favorite.
Out of all the high end antique finds, this set was my favorite.
What was your favorite?
It was so fun to step inside an antique store and be swept away into another era when things were made so much better.
