I love old things. I don't know why. I love old china...
I don't know why.
REMEMBER THAT SONG: I don't know why I love you like I do!
This week I found some lovely 1950's dishes that are Rosebud Bouquet pattern produced in the USA. I got them at 2 separate antique malls in Denver, Colorado! Would you believe they are 2 different versions of pretty much the same thing. One is Harkerware and the other is Whitechapel China. Perhaps that really is the same company with just different backstamps - this I will have to research.
I put my Sadler teapot with the set above! and I also found these vintage gloves that have rosebuds too!
I did see on line where there was an ad in the Binghamton Press Newspaper dated January 28, 1959 selling these dishes at a furniture store. The advertisement talked about these wonderful CHIP RESISTANT dishes. Between the two partial sets I have 70 pieces. These are everyday kitchen dishes and very soft and fun! I plan to use them for everyday but no dishwasher!
Is your style changing or staying the same? I have been moving toward Vintage Cottage Style this year. It seems where I am at in life now. I have moved away from the Victorian Style I used to have.
I will be sharing this post with: Home and Garden Thursday
Today I also got to meet a fellow blogger, Linda Jennings from Friendship Tea who visited my store! I wish I was skinny for this
picture so I apologize for the fact that I have become the "big girl".
You know, I think we look alike -
what do you think - sisters?
