SHOW and TELL FRIDAY


Today is Show and Tell Friday and I am going to show some china pieces that I found in a Thrift shop last week.I am not usually a person who buys dishes,but I thought these would fit in to my kitchen decor since it is vintage and old kitchen gadgets and pictures.Now I need to find a older plate holder for them. I just loved the blue color of this one and the design of it.It has markings on the back that is a lion and says Churchill England.I got it for$.50

These I choose because they looked odd,I like the White gold on them.They have a marking that is an MCP intertwined with the no.735H.It is posted with a 22 karat white gold also.Made in the U.S.A. This was $3.00 for all 4 pieces.


I love the little flower design and gold rim on this little saucer,it is marked HomerLaughlin,no.E 47N 6 made in the U.S.A. This one was $1.00



This one has an oreintal look to it,The mark on it is Harmony House,it is called Sunny Glade.is says HH Fedral Gold and Japan.This one was $1.00




Last but not least this cute little bowl with what looks like a peony in the center.Mark on back is a bow and arrow The Harkes Pottery Co. No.1 made in the U.S.A. since 1840.22 karat gold trim around the outside edge.This one was also $1.00

I guess I could become a china collector if I had the space or room in my home for it,but I already have so many collection I really do not need to start another collection.

Great finds. The best deal I got was a 3o-35 piece collection of Norktaki china for $35.00.
I favor the little bowl with the peony in the middle.

Those white and gold plates are really unusual, they look like 1950's or early 60's style - so cool!

Susan B said...

Yes! You have room! The room that connect to your kitchen and dining you could build a shelf, or hang on the wall! Or you can send me the Church Hill one, and the pink rose ones! lol I have a birthday next month! lol I have two Church Hill plates, going up on the wall, but its a rod iron and has three places for plates. I still looking for one of them, hope no one broke while I was traveling. I going to use a blue willow, for the third or something. Guess what, I want to find some yellow desert or bread plates and yellow bowls. I got a bubble bee emboridery screen round and size of a bowl. It so great! I saw some yellow bowls at Marshall, I loved, but no small plate. I got to redo my china cabinets! I thinking of making a large self, over my buffet table, you know the one I am looking for! Someday I will find the perfect one! Love your collection, OK go crazy like me and start collecting! lol
