Vintage aluminum measuring spoons and a Brazil Cockatoo Figurine

Vintage aluminum measuring spoons and a Brazil Cockatoo Figurine

So last week I took a visit to one of my favorite thrift stores just to see what they had in stock by way of vintage clothing.  I am still on the hunt for those so-called big "E" and red lines Levi jeans. Why are they so hard to come by? And I am sure I just skipped right over some of the other vintage brand name jeans. But I digress. As usually, I make my way over to the other parts of the store and see if anything stands out at me. And that is when I found this interesting porcelain Cockatoo figurine. After searching on Google, I found some for sale and they are being dated 60's and 70's and this one looks comparable. I wish I could find the exact year and manufacturer.

These aluminum spoons remind me of the ones my mom used when I was a child. She used them when baking her famous cakes, pies and family recipes. They are in great condition with nothing broken, chipped or bent. There are some stains on them from over time naturally. On the top it reads U.S.STD. Which I am sure means United States Standard for measurements.
