Auction Dishes

I am always on the  "look out"  for dishes and Saturday the auction had this pretty set.   There weren't a lot of pieces but I decided to bid on it anyway.  
I have the table set for lunch in the sun room where we can eat and enjoy the yard.   The yard is still lush and green, but there is a feel of fall in the air.

There was a large serving platter that I thought made a fun dinner plate....for a hearty eater!

There were 3 soup/salad bowls, 4 dinner plates, 5 dessert plates, and 1 saucer....no cups.

The floral pattern is by Homer Laughlin...soft pinks, blues, and lavender.  Since there weren't any cups, I am using some vintage coffee cups that belonged to my mother.  Back in the late 60's she kept the books for a local restaurant.  These were the coffee cups they used....I also have some of the dinner plates and saucers to match. 

One pretty serving bowl ....

and I thought this teapot that I already had was a pretty good match to the dishes.

The auction had a whole table of mismatched dishes and I chose these for $7.50.

Thank you so much for stopping by.....

  6. Sp lovely. Pretty dishes remind me of another time, when life was slower and pretty mattered. We've reverted to ever-functional Fiesta, but I do miss the elegance of china.

  28. Lovely dishes! You did well. The mark means that they were made in March of 1945 in the Newell plant #6 (Newell, West Virginia). I am pretty sure this is the Republic shape. The patternes were usually given a number, not a name, although there are exceptions. Also many of the same decals were used on different shapes. Wonderful dishes at a great price! I know you will enjoy them.
