This is our "good" china. A Homer Laughin pattern. It is the same as my mother got when she married in 1941. My sister has the original set. We found this at an auction about 10 years ago. I think we have 12 settings + serving pieces.

Not formal, not floral and not too vintage. It is from the 50s.

I started collection of Moroccan amethyst dinnerware in the late 60s. I have always had a passion for purple...

Good idea on the ice cream. Would look beautiful and make ice cream taste better besides!

I have several sets of china. I just love dishes. We'll use these this year, although for years I've thought we shouldn't really use them anymore. No flowers, but I'm sure I'll make someone jealous. Ha!

Cool dishes, I should be able to tell who made them but I am rusty at that stuff now.
I have a couple pieces of the Moroccan amethyst. The color is more intense than your picture captured.
Amazing all the different dishes that were made over the years. Tons of companies & tons of patterns.

You should know that one Bernie! Mine's a Red Wing pattern. It's the biggest set I have, but I also have a couple of others. I love Red Wing dinnerware. I'm trying to collect a plate in every pattern - think I'm up to 18 now.

Yes, I agree ~ the purple is far more intense than that photo. I find it a difficult color to capture.
[quote] My wife collects cats. [/quote] Us too if you mean real ones! LOL

Jadajoy ~ not sure how rare they are. Just people like me that have them stuffed in the cabinets. I had initially hoped they were depression vintage. When I learned otherwise, I said oh well ~ they'll be old before long! LOL

I do like the colored glass and told DH if I hadn't collected purple, I would have liked pink. He said he was glad I collected purple ~ didn't like pink. I also said I should sell mine and he said he would have to buy it then...

McGlory ~ the western dinnerware is all the rage right now as well as all things western. Very cool! I grew up in MN but Red Wing pottery wasn't as common locally in later years. They marketed it far and wide. During the early days, it was crocks, bowls and churns to be used locally as tools.

Vintage ? Maybe... This is my Polish china. Bought new in the 70s and I selected a variety of primary colors. We have used it daily all these years. The kids remember it fondly and each had their favorite color. Not so elegant but cheerful...

Podster--that would display well with some Fiesta, also would go well in a southwestern themed Kitchen.

McGlory, Yes I am Jealous! Lovely! The only Red Wing I own are the ashtray shown and the platter. They made some interesting pieces. Would like to see more.

This ash tray sits on a little table and makes a bold statement just by its shape.

My mother had the entire set of Metlox rooster dinnerware. She used it for everyday. It chipped up badly and all that's left is the coffee server and a big serving bowl. The pattern is painted under the glaze, but the dots on the edge can be quite thick and sometimes stick up, if I recall correctly.

I love Hall's poppy line. Joyce, I'll try to remember to look up your Red Wing pattern this weekend. It's not a pattern I have, but I recognize it as one of the dinnerware lines.

I collect Depression glass. Have over a dozen sets. Used to have more but have been selling it off. My wife collects the hand made Elegant glass by Fostoria, and she has several sets. We use a Blue Ridge China pattern for every day. Also have several other sets of Blue Ridge. LOL. But have sold off a lot of my Blue Ridge. Just sold a Franciscan set on ebay. Oh my.
Will probably use the green Cameo pattern Depression glass for Thanksgiving. Set on a yellow cloth, really is stunning. That set has a lot of serving pieces which you need for a Thanksgiving dinner. Harold

Boy, and I thought I was a dish collector! I have 3 sets and a lot of odd pieces. You guys make me look like a piker. I really like the Moroccan purple, no matter what the date is. I like lots of the others as well. My MIL has a set of Franciscan she got from her aunt. My mil is 87. She has lots of lovely old stuff from her family.
My parents families were very poor and had very little to leave to anyone, but my husband's family, while not rich, collected lots of dishes and furniture. Nice stuff.

Certain pieces of dinnerware "speak" to me. This old bowl and platter were picked up separately and the bowl has been with me almost 40 years now. The platter was found later. I use them both and am always looking for a match to these pieces. Love them...

The rooster is indeedpainted unde the galze and the dots around th edges do stick up prominently. I only have this one piece. I would love to see some of the other pieces.
I'm not familiar with Hall's poppy but I like their cookie jars.

Harold--Blue Ridge is a flower lovers delight. All different kinds on each peice. Saw a stack of plates just yesterday in a thrift but they were all chipped so i left them. But they were very pretty. Depression glass table setting sounds elegant! Do show pics.

pajaritomt- My mom was a thrift store shopper and I think thats where I get my habit of like you, picking up odd pieces. I 'm not organized enough to try to collect whole sets. I just love the individual pieces I find and try to use them for different things like in the bathroom or bedrooms.

Pod- Those would have spoke to me too. Love them! Who made them? Have you tried Replacements.com,? They have just about anything in dishes you can imagine. It'd be nice to have more of those. They are gorgoeus.

Jadajoy ~ they are Porcelaine Royale Pitcairns Limited ~ Tunstall, England Mostyn. Thanks for appreciating them too. I haven't looked there but will peruse their site when I have some time. After all, the search is part of the fun!

This is the Halls red poppy pattern. I am sure you have seen it around. This casserole was a Christmas present from my MIL. In her later years she would gift me her antique pieces saying she knew I was the only one that cared about them. Her 3 DDs had no interest in "old". I was thoroughly appreciative! In the Halls pattern around here the only one I see is the Autumn leaves ~ but not sure if that is the correct name. This piece can be used as a casserole, a serving dish and the lid can be inverted for a pie plate. Seems she told me these were a grocery store premium...

Pod--Those two pieces look so delicate, figures they are fine china from England. Lovely.

Red Poppy is nice. Yes, the Autumn pattern is pretty common, that one is quite different. What a versatile piece. I agree "old" stuff is the best! I like multi use functional kitchen items. Do you use it? It looks to be in perfect condition. Someone told me they were Jewel Tea. Was that a store?

The only casserole bowl I have is this one by Universal. The good thing about these is they go from oven to frig and serving also.

I think Jewel Tea was a company that gave out Hall's Autumn Leaf pattern. It was a wildly popular pattern, available in stores, but you could get free pieces by sending in boxtops or some such similar thing into the Jewel Tea company. Pieces that came from Jewel Tea are marked as such along with the Hall mark. Pieces purchased individually don't have the Jewel Tea mark.

I think... It's been a long time since I had anyone to talk dishes with. :-) That's a cutie of a teapot, jada. Don't you just love the great Good Will finds?

What a nice slice of history. You should do a story on them :-)

You are so right! I used to have a little booth in an antique mall and it was pretty large. There was always some knowledgeable person in there to talk to about this stuff. But that seems like ages ago and I have probably forgotten more stuff than I remember. I just have the few pieces I couldn't part with ( a closet full) and i still thrift shop but try not to accumulate more stuff than I can keep because I dont sell anymore. ( I've learned to say no :-)

Every now and then I'll splurge if I think its worth it but my collecting days are behind me
except for books. ( A girls gotta have some fun :-)

I know you must have some wonderful items...come on... show us that McCoy collection...

You and podster keep starting the threads, Joyce, and we can talk dishes and pottery for a long time!

The McCoy is sort of spread out including some in boxes. I'll keep taking pictures along and put them on the other thread.

Maybe this weekend I can take pictures of each of my Red Wing dinner plates. I can identify all the patterns, and I can try to identify yours too. If you all are interested, stay tuned...

This is DH collection. Haven't purchased anything in years because we over 200 pieces. Every specialized piece you can imagine. It took two very large tubs to pack it away. Tired of dusting. Cat Tail decal. In the very early 50's Sears even had a table and all kitchen linens with this pattern on it.

Jewel Tea Company was a door to door sales type business. I remember my mother used to buy from the salesman that came around. They offered among other premiums, the Autumn Leaf pattern made by Hall China. But she must not have bought much because all I remember her having was the set of Autumn Leaf mixing bowls. Harold

LouC... What a beautiful set. Please show a close up of the tumblers. I have never seen those.
In Jo Cunninghams "American Dinnewear" there are several ads that show the line but theses are not in those ads, they must be very rare. I wish I could scan the pic but dont have a flat top scanner, anyway one of them features a 46 piece matching set for $23.89. Thats the one you mentioned with the table and 4 chairs made out of solid oak and a 32 piece dinner set . The table and chairs alone were 18.98 so the dinnerware set must have been under $5.00. This was in 1941 from the Sears Catalogue. I'm sure you already know all this owning over 200 pieces You must have the definitive collection! I think what appeals to me is the chinese red coloring. I dont think see this color too much anymore. Do you use any of the peices?

HaroldS-- I think thats the story I was told, that they came door to door. Thanks for the info. I guess they were like the Fuller Brush Company. Lots of door-to-door salesman back then.

I'm as old as the dishes. hhahah. was born in 1941, six weeks before Pearl Harbor. No embedded media in those days. My dad was gone 4 years. We didn't know where he was for 28 months. Everthing was highly coded and secret.

I distintcly remember the Jewel Tea man, as it was called. He had what was called a step-van in those days. One car in a family was rare. Two didn't happen at all. No autos were made during the war. Every piece of metal went to the war effort. Women even took their extra pots and pans to a collection area to be donated to be melted down. Jewel Tea's main thrust was the non-perishable side of the grocery isles. Also something that was pretty new, prepared mixes such as cornbread, biscuit (about the same time bisquick came on the scene), cake mix, spices in little tins, of course, coffee and tea. The Hall's dishes were a special item. Because of no personal transportation we also had "Manor Bakers" the bread man, carried all kinds of sweets as well. Most exotic offering of bread was *wheat*. Choice of white or wheat. Only one style of slice. Then there was the "Borden Co." , the milkman, milk, orange juice, eggs, cottage cheese. Lots of woolen clothes that had to be dry cleaned and the cleaners picked up and delivered. "Watkins Man" with all kinds of spices and still the best vanilla in the world. And when I first married in 1961 all of these services were still available. We even bought fresh eggs from someone that delivered from his own chickens once a month. Didn't have to worry about the food chain then.

Joyce,

We are going to MIL today for our Thanks-Giving feast. One of those trade-offs yesterday allowing other members of the family to participate with their family. Lots of things you will love. Maybe tomorrow I can get my camera to going. I have another set of Mexican design that I have never been able to find in 30 years of collecting. Also have a couple of pieces of your pattern.

This is sooo much fun.

McGlory-I know what you mean. Its like that game where you get in a circle and whisper something to the person next to you and they whisper it to someone else and by the time it gets around the circle its turned into something else entirely! I think thats what happens to our memories over time.

I dont know the name of that Mexican Pattern its just marked "Cavitt-Shaw" with a number. Maybe when LouC comes back she'll know.

LouC--How I Love all that history! I was born in 1957 and remember the ice man and the fruit wagon that came in the summers. There was a man my mother bought clothes and kitchen stuff from but I dont know what company he was with. There was also the coal truck that hitched a chute to the basement of the building and ran black coal to the furnace.We were always glad to see those people when they came and looked forward to it. Except, for some reason the insurance man. I guess paying on that policy was an extra bill my mother sometimes avoided.

Have fun today. I forgot to ask about your visit with Shari. Are pics posted somewhere? I'm excited to see more of your collections!

Cavitt-Shaw was a division of W. S. George Pottery Company. Lois Lehner says in her book U.S. Marks on Pottery that that mark was used in the late 1930's and possibly 1940's. And Jo Cunningham in her American Dinnerware says Cavitt-Shaw Division did not prove to be successful. The "S" in W. S. George is Shaw, and it is believed Cavitt was another family name. I don't think I've ever come across a Cavitt-Shaw mark. Looking on ebay shows some interesting patterns. Looking on ebay also shows pottery double marked Royal China and Cavitt-Shaw. I believe I read somewhere that Royal used a W.S. George factory at one time. I don't know why W.S. George has never become a major collectible while Hall and Homer Laughlin are. Mexican theme pottery is very desirable. Yours is very nice Jada. Harold (
p.s. Royal China's Currier & Ives pattern is another big set of mine. It was made for so long that there are many interesting and difficult pieces to look for. They are also very sturdy dishes and we use them when we eat outside. They were given away by A & P at one time. I'm looking for an A & P brochure on this pattern if anyone runs across one. Anyone else collect Currier & Ives? There is a National club that puts out a wonderful newsletter and has a yearly convention. )

Wow Harold! Thanks for identifying the company. I had wondered about them for some time now. You just renewed my interest in finding some more of their pottery. I have come across a few pieces of Currier and Ives but only the teacup saucers and the small bowls.That must make for interesting searching as there are so many patterns. It would display beautifully. I'll be on the lookout for a brochure or ad. Do you have pics?

It true Homer Laughlin and others have become collectible and some, with just as nice work, hasnt. Like the Edwin Knowles Co. which has a lovely Mexican line and also Paden City which made a solid color dinnerware just as nice as Fiesta. I'll try to get pics of some of these other collectibles but for now I have this one plate by Homer Laughlin that I really like. Its marked "Genesee"

I'm so excited to see all this.
First. I have a platter from your first set.
Of your second set I have 5 or 6 dinner plates. Heres a close up of the decal. Dont you just love them :-0
I havent been looking for more pieces in years and think I might just start again. There are so many Mexican decals it would be fun to get some of each. I think Homer Laughlin had about 4 0r 5 alone. Edwin Knowles are equally pretty to me.

Joy, this is only the beginning. Happens to be all of the Mexican motif that I could take pictures of pretty quickly tonight. I have 6 berry bowls, not 4. Purchased this at an estate sale here in our little town at least 20 years ago for all of $2.00. Have never seen another piece exactly like it. I, too, had a booth in a junktique mall about 12-13 years ago. Lasted 4 years. It was intended to cull my collections. HA! Just added to. We literally had a truck load of granite and Polish metalwear. Our son lives in Tulsa and wanted to know if he could have it. He had a new house so we filled the motorhome and took off. Filled one entire side of his 3 car garage and didn't even take it all. He was astounded. Had no idea what he had asked for and was hollering "uncle". hahaha

I have a book that lists the top 500 dinnerware patterns of the 20th century. The only ones of the ones you people have talked about in there is the single rooster, called "California Provincial" & "Red Rooster" (variation in edge color.), Desert Rose, Currier & Ives, & of course Fiesta.

There are a number of Christmas patterns. Does anyone have any ?

I have lots of dinnerware, but don't have a clue as to patterns. I know I have Fiesta & a number of Haviland pieces. Also lots of Homer Laughin.

This is my booth at an antique show in March of 2006.

I stumbled into this thread and am enjoying the plate collections. I wanted crown molding in my dining room, and when DH procrastinated, I nailed painted plates all around the ceiling. He was less than thrilled...but I still haven't gotten that molding , so plates are staying till I do! I'd photog 'em, but then I'd have to dust...

Great photos Bernie! Thanks for sharing. You have a wonderful collection, as do the rest of you all.

Bigbubbles, having a trim carpenter for a husband was the only way I managed to get the trim up in my house. It's an ongoing project around here. He scavenges it from jobs that he's worked on. Was able to "collect" enough here and there to do 3 rooms and our hallway with both crown and base. That updates a home so much and increases the value. Of course, that doesn't have a thing to do with vintage dinnerware. :-)

Show us your plates. We don't mind a little dust.

Oh, I have it in the other rooms, but it took a lot of whining. The dining room has a vent at the ceiling and it's supposedly the problem. I think he could just go around it...or move it. I'll see if I can snap a couple pics...plates and cobwebs...

Here is a picture of hand tinted under glaze Royal China Currier & Ives pattern. No records when these were made, and not very many sets have surfaced. They are normal blue & white Currier & Ives but some color added by hand before being glazed and fired. Probably the hand work required was too costly. No one knows how many pieces were done this way but I have quite a few, but no teapot, casserole, those kind of pieces.

She had (and now you have) a wonderful collection. You are very lucky to have them. I wonder if perhaps she knew who the artist was. They are all so well done. Your displays of glass is really pretty too.

About this time last year, we'd gone out to my neighbor's new home so hubby could put some trim in it. I just went along to help Kathy unpack some of her things. She has a wonderful antique place in one of the malls. I hadn't been inside of her living room in the old house so didn't know what I was in for. All I saw when we got there were rubbermaid tubs full of bubblewrap. Each waybigo tub had gorgeous glass pieces, much like you have there, in every color of the rainbow. She had really pretty cabinets that were lit up like yours to show them off. I wish it had been night time when we loft so I could have seen it at night. We finished putting away all of those tubs of glass about the time hubby finished up his job. It was so much fun, seeing her cabinets come to life with colors all in the space of a few hours. I wish I'd had my camera with me. They've moved way out in the country, quite a distance from us now.

Great Pics folks! Love depression glass.
Harold --that certainly is different. I've never seen it with the coloring, just blue and white and maybe green and white if I remember correctly. Those must be the originals.Very nice! Must be very, very hard to find.

Pepper--I'd be interested in seeing those lamps also.

LouC--- heres something I know you will like. I got these in the 80's. They had these two and I bought one and went back the next day to get the other! They are made in Japan but I havent seen many others. They have five different parts--- sugar, creamer, pot, underplate and lid. And of course they have the chinese red!

Guess I'm done...won't accept anymore pics... Was trying to get to the vent pic! Maybe tomorrow...
We had boxes of Depression glass my aunt had collected...all colors and nearly full sets. Decided to have a garage sale and pare down few yrs ago. I checked out some antique pricing books at the library and whatever the book said a piece was worth, I marked each piece half of that. Day of the sale, we were swamped...and no one wanted it by the piece. They wanted the whole sets. We were such novices...
This is the same aunt that suggested I start collecting something when I married. Okay...I decided to collect pewter...until I learned how expensive it was. Just to annoy her, I told her I had decided to collect egg beaters! Showed her one I bought for 25 cents, and forgot about it. She started picking them up at sales and antique shops. I have a box of egg beaters...all kinds...probably over 50 in the attic...

Those are awesome plates bubbles! Are any of them marked? They look like some I've seen on the Antiques Roadshow. Made to be decorative. So, so pretty! I particularly like the Felix plate. Thats an early rendition of him for sure. Egg beaters, huh. I think you should dust them off, they are going for a pretty penny these days.

Janet, we posted at same time again! My aunt planned to have an antique shop when she retired so she kept buying things. We were living in Hawaii and she came to visit. We took her to the other islands and she got bitten by the travel bug. Went home and started selling off her really good pieces. Took trips to the Orient, Mid East, Greece, etc. She really enjoyed herself...and those pieces paid for her trips.

This was the first pattern, that isn't really a pattern. It was Red Wing's intoduction into dinnerware, and they called it Provencial Oomph. Provencial Oomph is frequently confused with Village Green or Village Brown which were later patterns featuring the same color of green. Village Green and Village Brown were ribbed on the bottom. Provencial Oomph is not, and the shape is different.

This is the back side of the Provencial Oomph shown above. See how it's smooth, and there is no mark? Village Brown will be ribbed. Village Green is green on the back.

Tampico is the same shape. The Tampico pattern was more expensive to produce, having the most brushstrokes (over 60) of any of the lines. The more brushstrokes in the handpainting, the more expensive to produce.

I think I missed Lute Song. I have a service for four of this pattern, only missing a few serving pieces.

And thus ends today's lesson on Red Wing dinnerware. :-)

I must go through some boxes in the basement. I know a few patterns are missing. I am collecting a dinner plate in all patterns, and hopefully someday I'll make it. I used to have Iris, a pattern in the square shape, but I gave it to my sister who loves Iris. Another will come along.

Got a RedWing salad bowl for wedding present in 1961. Very odd shape, sort of oval and very deep. Makes it easy to toss a salad. It is at my DD where she uses it frequently. I have a blue RedWing tea pitcher that I bought at Tues. Morning just last year for $4.99. They had them in 3 colors. Have no idea what the deal is. Someone has apparently purchased the label and is reproducing which would make them much less valuable. This is a darker grey blue. Doubtful it was one of the original colors.

My bowl has the same finish as your last plate, as did a lot of the dishes. Probably made it without a pattern so it would match the majority of the sets.

Oh
That was such a treat! Thanks for showing those. Its a wonderful collection.
I am trying to grow some Chinese lantern plants and particularly liked the lantern plate. I never saw it on a plate before. I am going to have to find one of those. And the Montmarc is gorgeous! I did not know Red Wing made such beautiful dinnerware. Mostly what I see around here is the Bob White and it was great seeing other stuff especially with the info you provided.

A lot of older dinnerware is being reproduced like the Franciscan and the Fiesta of course. Hopefully it makes the originals more valuable if the differences are noted.

This old platter has seen better days, but I loved that I could identify it from an article/ with pic that was taped to the back of it! Said the pattern was Melbourne, made by Gildea and Walker on Aug.27, 1881...the first yr the co. was in business. The Eng. manuf. was only in business for 5 yrs...Depicts the journey of Columbus...

I've seen pictures of your platter, bubbles, but never seen one live and in person. Everything on your bookshelf looks interesting.

LouC, does your big bowl have a wavy rim rather than just being flat? If it's flat, it's part of the line that Lute Song comes from. If it's higher on two ends and dips down between, it's part of the line that Roundup and Bob White came from. Yes, a few of those larger pieces were made to go with either pattern. You can find that big bowl with a Bob White painted on it, but it's pretty rare.

I'm going to keep on until I find your tea set. circa 1890. Just look at the kilns. Marvelous to think you have pieces that were fired there.

Thought I'd share a small (very small, teeny weeny) part of my Coors Rosebud collection. They made many different pieces and each one in each color (there are 6 colors). Of course I had to have one of each. I was in the antique business and at one point sold off a whole bunch, but still have boxes and boxes full that I don't have room to display in this house. I mix it with Mexicana. I see several of the Mexicana patterns on this thread. If anyone can't identify a pattern show me and I'll probably have the info somewhere. I dealt in 20-50s stuff and since I love the Mexican things but couldn't keep everything I at least could handle them for a while through the store. Great fun this thread. I have a few collections of dinnerware but the others are ones I actually use, mostly Wallace Dahlia pattern, restaurant ware, which is pretty much indestructible. I saw a Tepco Shadowleaf saucer up there in one post, I have some of that too. OK, here's a wee part of my collection.

There are two more, yellow (which is a pale yellow, same color as the garlands on the green and blue plates) and ivory, the most difficult to find. There's been a controversy over which company actually came out with colored dinnerware first. Some say Homer Laughlin with Fiesta, others say Bauer but Coors also likes to take the claim. Anyway, when you could finally buy colored dishes why would you want white? So the ivory wasn't ordered much, therefore not much was produced, therefore it's really scarce and 'spensive. The story is this: Coors has always had a pottery, from forever, making industrial ware (mortar & pestle, etc). When prohibition shut down the brewery they converted everything to a pottery, hired some really good potters out of Ohio and produced several lines of dinnerware. These were sold through Montgomery Ward catalog and you could get a serving for six for something like $3.00. Don't quote me on that but I know it was a ridiculous price by today's standards. Rosebud was only produced for a few years. Once WWII started all nonessential pottery production was stopped. They went a little crazy with all the different pieces in this line. I mean there are five different types of casseroles and a couple of those come in four sizes! Then there are things like oatmeal bowls, shirred egg bowls...the list is endless of unusual pieces. At one point I had them all (or all I could get my hands on). Now I just take out a few pieces and make vignettes here and there. Here's a pretty bad pic of one display I have going right now. The glass on the cabinet reflected , but you get the idea.

Also, Harold, I meant to ask, you're not dealing anymore? Was your shop in Glendale and when? I was most active dealing between 1988 and, what, about five years ago? eBay put a huge crimp in my buying abilities. I used to love driving around the country buying goodies and shipping them home for the shop. Can you believe that? UPS was so cheap it was worth it to ship from wherever I happened to be. And I shopped Glendale quite a few times. I wonder if I bought from you?

Sorry Stella - I should have said actively dealing. I did quit buying a couple years ago because we have so much stashed in boxes, and this "dishes" business is so slow now. We still do a couple of glass shows, but never had a booth in Glendale. It has really gone down hill, very few "vintage" shops any more. Most have closed or gone "country" and/or new stuff. I knew several California dealers who used to do a "Glendale run", but it's not been worthwhile the past several years. You wouldn't pay for your gas.
We used to go frequently to the Long Beach Flea Market, and could make several trips out to the car with goodies. Never did get to the Rose Bowl tho. But the last few times at Long Beach, all I came home with was some cactus plants. Everyone is selling - er giving away - their stuff on ebay.
Did you ever attend the Cameo glass & pottery shows in Buena Park? We did sell there for years, but it closed a couple years ago. Someone is now trying to get it going again.

I believe this will all come around again. Our economy of simply having the money for gasoline to get to work and back has put a dent in our pleasures. I am 66 and don't know if I will live to see the time when this is again a thrill for those who enjoy the "hunt:". Have packed away a lot of our collections. Tired of dusting. Maybe our great-grandchildren will recognize either a pleasure of having or selling. Who knows? Main rule: Never collect anything that doesn't give pleasure for you...not for resale.

Harold, I was in Laguna Beach at the time so Long Beach was my favorite, because it was so close. And that's nice when you need to be there before dawn. Actually the best one for buying was always Pasadena City College on the 1st Sunday. The Rose Bowl had turned into a retail store (mostly dealers just moving their stuff from their booths into a parking space with same pricing). I miss those trips around the country. I would take off all of May and all of September, fly to somewhere (St Louis, Cincinnati, Detroit, Chicago), rent a car and drive all over. My sister had a barn in No Ohio where I'd stash everything, then take the last couple of days of my trip, pack it all and ship it home. So much fun. I remember exactly the place, if not the time, when I knew it was all going to change and I'd probably want nothing to do with it. I was in Tecumseh Michigan at their spring flea when from every other space I'd hear the word "eBay." Changed everything. I have boxes and boxes of stuff that I need to sell on eBay because they're actually worth something but I sure have never gotten the inspiration to do so. Never did do the Cameo show, which seemed to focus more on glass and I never got the glass bug.

Jadajoy, I gotcha. Those aren't teapots, no, they're not even pottery, lol. They are wooden and were used as laundry flake dispensers. They are very much not easy to find. Well, I really shouldn't say that. I guess I haven't looked too hard since eBay started. Maybe if you do a search for mexicana, or sleeping mexican or siesta, those seem to be the words everyone uses for description. Good luck!

LouC, we cross-posted. And you brought up a point I meant to make also. When the last collecting craze started we were in a recession. And I think it'll happen again. Right now probably not because of the cost of fuel but some day. I'm also too old to maybe be active in the hunt when it comes again, and I'm also getting less interested in collecting more "stuff," but still have plenty of friends still in the game. One of them with '70s stuff for petes sake. I help him buy stuff all the time. We have great church sales here and that particular era hasn't hit big up this way yet, so he gets it for cheap and sells in his booth in Long Beach. So it's still happening on a different level. OK, got off track, what I really meant to say was that I believe that when times are bad and finances are tight that folks take comfort in the old stuff and want to surround themselves with nostalgia. This is what I saw happen in the early 90s and I believe it was that feeling that started the last collecting craze. Martha Stewart can thank that sentiment for her popularity too, I believe. She stepped right in there at the perfect time; people wanted to focus more on making their homes more lovely and comfortable and she inspired them and gave them the tools. I myself find more comfort in my garden these days and get to apply all the very same color/decorating rules I learned dealing with home furnishings. Especially color, I loves my color.

Having sold a little bit on ebay, I agree with Harolds' comment [quote] Everyone is selling - er giving away - their stuff on ebay [/quote] In my experience you end up giving it away. There are very few successful selling stories of glassware on ebay. I don't see the charm in buying or selling there. I think the dealers are using that as a marketing ploy. Saying this would draw far more on ebay... Many local antique mall dealers get their pricing structure off of ebay but they neglect to actually look at what it is selling for, only the asking price.

My best ebay merchandise market was "guy" stuff. Guys will bid on anything ~ LOL

When I was at the height of collecting my DH went with me and had his own realm of interest. We really had a good time in "The Hunt". e-bay can't offer any of that. Hadn't really thought about it but that is about the time we gave it up as well. It was fun to spot something for our collection of whatever and casually pick it up, walk away as though we were not interested and then come back to barter. Having been a dealer myself, of course, the person usually knew the game...except the naive person running their garage sale. After the Gene Florence books came out everyone seemed to think they were an expert and priced everything to high heaven. An item is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, not an artificial price. The GF books are good for history but not pricing. Since we are retired we sometimes talk of going "garage saling" some Friday for entertainment but never seem to get the want to bad enough. Where would we put it is our main lament now. One more comment about ebay. There are many very good reproductions on the market now. Unless the dealer on the other end is very savy, you could be getting a copy. After years of collecting certain items, I can tell the minute I pick it up whether it is real or not. e-bay denies that little opportunity. my 2 cents.

The garden has more than filled my time with immeasurable pleasure. Still like to look at your collections. Fun to see another aspect of our lives.

CountryGardens, I saw the Smiley Pigs in your china cabinet. I have the same ones in mine. They were a wedding gift to my great-grandmother in 1900 or 1901. They always were a favorite of mine as a child. Can you tell me more about them?

I didn't realize they have been around that long. They are made by Shawnee company. There are cookie jars & other items as well. Most of the time quite valuable. Cookie jars can bring over $200.00. There are many different color schemes.

They are priceless to me but I've never seen any like them before. She had so many pretty things in her home. I used to prowl through her things but I always asked if it was alright first. She said it was a good thing she didn't have anything to hide or I'd be sure to find it!

I'm fortunate to have a clover Smiley cookie jar. He came to me for $.25 at the white elephant sale at the Episcopal Church in La Jolla in 1973 and I love him dearly.

I hope I don't have that story confused with something else she had. It's been such a long time ago. Now this will drive me crazy trying to remember if it was something else.

Well, now, what a coincidence. I, too, had noticed the Smiley Pigs. My little blue boy has been without his mate for years, and he misses her. The fact that I have TWO of the cookie jars doesn't quell the pang. I was going to suggest someone start a cookie jar thread. Now that would be fun, although more limited, perhaps, than the dinnerware.

Jadajoy. . .your dish reminded me of the ones they gave away on "Free Dish Night" at the movies a long time ago. I remember it from the '40's! Every time you went to the show, you got a free dish and if you kept going regularly pretty soon you had the whole set. There was another little girl who lived next to me and her mother MADE her go to the movies so she could get the dishes. I got to go along with her as she hated going alone especially when she didn't even want to see the particular movie that was showing. I chuckle every time I remember that.

The Gildea & Walker Transferware platter you can figure out the Year, Month, Day and Batch number when it was made. Took me quite a while to figure it out but I did it as I sold lots of it. Its used for a lot of English Pottery.

Big Bubbles this one is colored like your platter. Cartouche moon & star is what I have. Platters are a big seller on ebay. Even if they have chips.

Here is the back with the numbers and letters. Its stamped Gildea & Walker IVORY. I think the red is the actual artist. Again Platters, teapots and pitchers are the money makers.

I sold about 100 pieces on ebay. Even a 10" plate with a chip on the edge will sell. Of course quality always brings more dollars.

Do any of you know the pattern glass Roses in Snow CIRCA 1940's? Would love to have a link to any intellegent forum dealing with this pattern. My mother left me a service for eight perhaps a complete set. Fifty years ago my wife and I bought two or three pieces to fill in the set. I have seen none locally...ever.

Thanks for update on the platter, schickenlady. I was just about to look at some photos I downloaded when I saw the thread had updated. I'll post a pic or two here and you can guess where I am.

Give up? Our entire subdivision has a garage sale the last Sat. of March each year. I've been unpacking boxes that have been stored in the garage...where my car should be. This year I'm going to get rid of some "stuff."

This is the BEST and most delicious and informative thread yet! I have never, that I recall, seen Coors Rosebud. However, I am pretty focused when I'm out on the prowl. Can't be collectin' EVERYTHING! How fascinating that Coors was a pottery. Wow! Maybe next time in Colorado I'll find some. Is that logical?

Does anyone have a website for restaurant ware? Some of it is so gorgeous for what it was, you'd never know it was restaurant ware. Is anyone familiar with a company or pattern called Mohawk? I picked up one lonesome tea cup with that single word underneath. It was so intriguing, and had a hand painted look. A black sailing ship on an ivory background. More, more, more is what I'm after!

BTW, does anyone besides me collect Fostoria American? I know it's common as can be, and I let all of my mom's set go to a niece. Then I accidentally started collecting it myself. Can't stop if I find a really good deal or something more unusual. Since I never, ever entertain, this is certainly aberrant behavior...

Talk about late responses, here is one. The picture at the very top of this thread is Desert Rose. It was made in California along with another similar that featured apples, at the beginning of WWII.
My grandmother had a large "tourist home" on Wrightsville Beach, NC, near Wilmington. Because there was not enough housing for WACs (Women's Army Corps), she have room for a lot of WACS as she had 4 bedrooms upstairs and 2 apartments downstairs. She bought a large amount of Desert Rose to feed them and did all the cooking herself. I have part of the set. Plenty of regular plates, dessert plates, small bowls etc. But I also have a lot of serving pieces and haven't seen them on eBay. I have a large turkey platter and a smaller platter, 1 bowl and 1 covered bowl, covered butter dish, salt and pepper (shaped like little rose buds on little dishes), a gravy boat and tumblers.
I did see the large turkey platter once on eBay and it sold about $100. These are only earthenware and some of the plates have chips on the underside but and I use and love them. I wrote up a history of them including makers and keep it in the small pitcher. I understand a cousin has a lot of these pieces, too. What a huge set Grandma must have bought.
