These salad plates were a recent thrift store find and I think they're so pretty! I'm not sure of their maker, as there are no marks of any kind on the back. Each one shows a different wild fowl. One of our 'dreams' when Wonderful Hubby retires is to build a smaller and more 'old person-friendly' home. WH would like a rustic looking room in the basement and I thought these might be great on a wall or even to eat a slice of pizza.
For now, though, I'm using them in a little more elegant setting.
Each plate is different. This one has Pheasants.
Are these Partridges? WH says they look like a Western Quail.
Guess he'd know.
And Wild Turkeys.
If anyone knows anything about this set,
I'd love to find out more. They have a very aged look about them including a bit of crazing and are lighter in weight than modern plates.
To complete the setting, I used a lace table cloth, dark blue placemats, Pier 1 napkins, white plates, vintage flatware and my lusterware glasses. These are from my dear MIL and were featured last summer in this post.
Here's a close up of them.
The sun came out today and our temperatures warmed to nearly 60 degrees!
I guess this is our January Thaw. Last year we endured a long,
frigid winter but so far, this winter hasn't been that bad.
I've really enjoyed these last several days!
I hope you're enjoying your January! I'll be joining these parties to
see what great ideas and inspiration you're sharing.
