Dishes from the Auction

We went to the auction Saturday...it was the estate of an older woman that had not thrown anything away...EVER!   I've already shown you some of the things that came home with me, and now I want to show you these beautiful  rose dishes.  I bought the box of dishes for $10.....it had 8 dinner plates, 8 soup bowls, 8 dessert plates, 8 saucers and 0 tea cups!  That's right...no tea cups!  In the box was also a  sugar bowl, a tiered tid bit server and 12 assorted bone plates.

I found tea cups and pots in my stash that have a very similar pattern.
I decided to do a tablescape in the formal dining room with my new treasures...I forgot to take a picture of the back of the dishes but they are marked Wawel Poland....and they are the pompadour rose pattern

I thought it would be fun to cover two of the plates with silver lids. (to keep the food warm..,,,lol)

I gathered up lots of vintage silverware to make the place settings interesting... 

I decorated the buffet in a rose theme to match the new dishes...

Here are some of the bone plates that were in the box... 

The scales are balancing tea cups and saucers...

My mother left me lots of beautiful rose serving bowls...

Remember the box of tea cups and saucer that I showed you in an earlier post that came from the same auction?   I displayed some of  them on a french drying rack...


On the left is the spring tablescape ....and on the right is the new one.


I bought fresh roses for the tablescape...

There must be a spoon here for any and everything you might want to eat....

An assortment of forks....

I had lots of fun putting this tablescape together....I hope you enjoyed it!

Til next time..

  6. Penny,
    The pattern on the dishes is called moss Rose and I have my Dining Room hutch full of it. The ones that I have collected have the "Made in Japan" on the bottom. This pattern was quite popular in the 40's and 50's and was produced by many countries and many companies. The ones I have tend more toward burgundy rather than pink. $10 for the box was , indeed, a steal!!
    Your tablescape is beautiful. Love all your silverware and all the other tea pots and other pieces!!
    I am convinced that you have far more collections that I would ever have room for!!

    LOL!

    Congrats on such a fantastic purchase!!

    Hugs,
    Deb

  18. Sheer delight! I often use bone dishes for bread plates, they conserve space, and they are always a hit with guests. Love the teacups on the French drying rack and on the scales...so charming. You've created a beautiful canvas with your wonderful auction treasures. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

  20. Unbelievable, how soon can I get to an auction?! You have a beautiful dining room, too, and those pink roses dishes are perfect. You should send those photos in to that magazine that is all about tea and tablesettings, I think it's called Tea Time - seriously - they need to feature you! So glad I saw this. Take care
