Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

This week for Show and Tell I'm sharing some dishes I found at the flea market last weekend for $2 each.

I bought 2 of this pattern below. They were made in Bavaria. I love the roses on these, they remind me of my absolute favorite rose "Pierre de Ronsard", also known as "Eden."

From the same vendor and also $2 I found this Limoges Haviland & Co. plate below. It has a few little chips around the edge but for $2 I couldn't pass it up!
I just love old dishes! I have to say one of the best things about blogging is finding out that so many of you feel the same way!

For all of you who are in the San Francisco Bay Area, Vintage & Vogue (downtown Campbell) is having a Holiday Celebration Friday, November 13th 10:00 am-9:00 pm and a 15% discount will be offered all day! I drove by the other night and all their Christmas decor in the window looked so beautiful!

Wow, what a great find at two dollars each!

Have fun at Vintage and Vogue. I am going to an antiques fair this weekend. Hopefully the predicted rainstorm won't prevent us from attending.

Cindy, thank you again for hosting this party. It's always one of my favorites. I try to get here early so that I can get a headstart on looking at everything. Your blog is looking as lovely as ever, and I truly enjoy my visits here.

I do so love pretty plates even if they do have a chip or 2! I am always saying that if someone where to break into our home they might think they hit the jackpot till they go to sell all those pretty , look like a million, but definitely chippy and imperfect dishes!!

Beautiful plates that would probably be $20 a piece in a shop.
Great find!

Karin said...

Gorgeous plates! I spent many summer vacations in Bavaria with my grandmother as a child. If I'd known then that I'd have such a passion for dainty rose plates, I would have asked her for all of her floral dishes.

Cindy,
Beautiful plates and a great price.

Sorry for not having joined you yet, but I just cannot bear the pressure! Life's too hectic for me at the moment!
Oh, I meant to say the most incredible thing happened- I found another bottle identical to the one I gave you!!!! Isn't this incredible?? I had NEVER seen one with a blue rose on the top, and I found TWO just alike!:)))))

Hi Cindy~ ~

Great buy on the plates they are beautiful! This summer I bought a pretty pink rose dinner plate and decided right then to begin collecting dinner plates with pink roses on them. So far I have just the 1. My plans are to collect at least 12 so that I can set a table with all the different plates and let each person at the dinner choose the setting with their favorite plate. Hows that for choosing placement for a dinnerparty? If you ever want to sell please keep me in mind.
