A new thrift store opened in our little town recently. I usually don't do thrift stores, I don't have the time or creative juices that many of you showcase every week. But, I decided to give it a try. Of course, I saw this set of dishes right off and snagged them up! I have learned that lesson-see it, buy it or lose it!
According to the back of the dish, this is a Homer Laughlin pattern. It's called "Theme-eggshell", I think. I've looked all over the internet to find anything about this pattern. The closest I came to was on Replacements' website. They show this dish without the floral pattern.
( Sorry this picture is blurry) I tried to enter both the number on the back of the plate and the name, but no luck.
Anyway-these plates reminded me of my Grandmother's everyday dishes. I especially loved the square salad plates.
The entire set consisted of six salad plates, six rimmed soup bowls, six fruit bowls, six cup and saucers, and a gravy boat. The cost-$35.00 for everything. Replacements showed the cup and saucer for $13.99 each. I think that I did pretty well!
I know my table isn't set very well yet, but I'm working on that. It took me awhile to find a cloth that would show the plates off. I know that I need to find a set of silverware that is less modern than the ones I have now. Stemware too!
So-if any of you know about this pattern, I would really appreciate the information. I would also like to find some dinner plates to complete the set. Susan-I love coming to see you every week. I have a great time at your party! Thanks for hosting all of us plate fanatics! Now let's get back to the party!!!
