Old Ivory China








Finding a pile of cast off ivory china in a thrift store is a good enough occasion for a white celebration! I've never seen this particular pattern before, and it isn't as sturdy or dear as my Wedgewood or even my Rose Point dishes by Steubenville. But all the better! I can use these more freely.





With the exception of a large platter, all the pieces in the set are smaller. Not a dinner plate in the bunch. But there are seven soup bowls, and eight of these alluring square salad plates to mix and match with the other patterns. Four berry bowls and a smattering of butter plates and a cereal bowl round it all out. I never gave it a second thought before grabbing it all up!











White roses and monogrammed linen dress it all up.


























I couldn't resist including my flea market ivory serving knife and fork to go with the theme!











An old wire dish drainer brings it all back down to earth. . . .






I even love the little maker's mark on the back.






Berry bowl, and bread and butter plate.
















































Wouldn't those plates look sweet with some pretty little sandwiches on them? Anyway, thanks for popping in for a look! So nice that you stopped by for a visit. I can't believe we're already looking to the weekend again! Hope it's good!

What a beautiful little set of Homer Laughlin dishes. I would say you made quite a find. I would definitely have scooped them up, too. xo Laura

The dishes are so pretty. We had some similar to those years ago and I miss them. I think everyone should have a set of white dishes and I need to put that on my to buy list.

Lucky you on finding those lovely plates, Jacqueline! I hope you enjoy them. Those square plates are perfect for tea sandwiches or cakes. (Thanks to you I'm now addicted to Little Debbie tea cakes and use my little visitors as an excuse to buy them!)
