Last Sunday afternoon I found some neat dishes at a local antique mall. I have found quite a few things at this mall over the years and a few times I have passed something by and later had reqrets.
So these plates were a must have even though I already have 2 sets of "Thanksgiving type" plates for fall. A girl can never
have too many though!
Today is Tuesday so I am joining two other ladies for their blog parties:
I enjoy visiting these blogs all the time!
Last night, I put the plates out. I see scratches on them from use so I really don't know how old this "Windsor Ware Harvest Fruit and Roses" Johnson Brothers Pattern is and haven't had time to do any research yet. I'm sure they are just old and not antique. It used to be that the rule of thumb was an antique was 100 years old. Now, I believe we often use the term vintage for something old but not antique.
I love everything on these plates: pomegranates, grapes, roses, chrysanthemums, pears and plums!
