vintage floral china

I started collecting china plates hoping to one day do one of those large cluster displays on a wall somewhere. Maybe over my bed or loved the idea of putting them in a bathroom. Well, I just unpacked the boxes they were in from when I moved into this house FIVE years ago!
We recently remodeled our bathroom and I was hoping to find some that would match well in there. Well, I don't think so. They are all just a little to pink for what I had in mind. But aren't they pretty!
These pink dishes were my moms. She had a HUGE lustre ware collection.



I love these old trivets too!




Thanks for letting me share some of my old china with you. Now it's time to pack it all back up again until I can find some wall space somewhere else!

thank you for sharing your pics of plates. I often think of the get togethers of days gone by and if plates could talk what they would have to say... O.K.. that may be crazy thinking but they say if wall could talk and my thoughts are "if plates could talk"..

I say wash those dishes off, put them in the cupboard and use them!! I started gathering floral dishes at the flea market a few years ago, after seeing a photo in one of Rachel Ashwell's books. It was of an opened dishwasher full of dishes... shabby, old, floral dishes loaded up all clean and shiny.

I think I'd leave them out and use them too! You have some really stunning pieces!
My Mom has a weakness for old floral china and collects it all the time. She collects whole sets though, and has more sets than I can remember. LOL

How sad you can't use them right now, but how much fun was it to unpack them and gaze at them and handle them? I'm sure it was like Christmas morning. I know I certainly enjoyed seeing them.

Beautiful! I love a pretty plate myself! Feel better.

Stack them up on a table at the very least! I hung a plate rack in my dining room to hold some of my favorite plates and also hung many of them on the wall of my studio where I can enjoy them.
