Vintage dishes

I love dishes - old or new. These are my Cattail Dishes - they were made by Sears in the 1940s.   For a long time I only had dessert plates - but  now I have more wonderful additions.

They are all in perfect condition, after almost 70 years

Fresh baked cranberry orange scones are perfect for a tea party

Vintage spoons too - and a pretty butterfly

There are four cups - two with this base

And two with this base

Oh dear - polite ladies don't put their scone in the teacup, do they?

A vintage napkins, scone and teacup, ready for tea

This was such a delight to view! The tablecloth is the pattern my mom crocheted back in the early 1950s. To my chagrin, I lost it when moving back in 1975. I mourn that loss. When I first sighted the dishes, I thought they were the pattern that was available in Duz boxes many years. But seeing them up close, I realized they weren't because the Duz premiums had a wheat pattern.

Really pretty, JoAnn! Especially gorgeous against that beautifully crocheted tablecloth. Wish I could come and drink tea and eat scones with you.

Oh these are beautiful dishes and to be in such incredible shape after that many years I could only wish to look that good. I love your table setting and scones and would love to drop in for tea. B

I covet these dishes! I have the covered bowls in three different sizes [refrigerator dishes?] and a mixing bowl. Love them! Wonderful photos...

What a sweet pattern on these dishes! I love them and the fact that they are vintage makes them even more special. Thanks for joining Diann and I at TTF!

Joann, I've always loved this pattern - it's so lovely. Lucky you to have some beautiful pieces! And the scones look especially yummy.

Thanks so much for joining in this week!

These are really lovely dishes...and they brought back memories to me. I haven't seen this set since the 60s. One of my neighbors had it. It is such a pretty pattern, and now so perfectly vintage! It looks fabulous on that crocheted tablecloth.
