This week, I want to show you some of my new vintage platters. My husband gave me these for Christmas. I hope you enjoy them.
This is so pretty. I have several platters similar in design to this one, no markings on the back. But oh, so me!
This one is very unusual. It is very pretty with its navy and gold rim and crown marking. It does have a small crack at the bottom but that just adds to the charm. My husband said that the lady at the antique mall told him that this was very old. I really like it. It is so different from any I have in my collection.
Here is a close-up of the marking on the platter. Does anyone recognise this marking?
This platter was also a gift from my husband. He knows I love platters with flowers. This one is not as old as some of the others, but I have a perfect place for this one. I am going to do a little remodeling around here after the first of the year, and I know where this cutie is going to go.
This platter is most special. My niece and her husband gave this to me. I could not believe it when I opened my box from her on Christmas. My husband had something to do with this! The colors are really nice, I love the flowers and it does have lots of crazing which I tend to like very much. I am going to hang this one in my kitchen. This platter quickly has become one of my favorites.
This is a platter that I purchased myself at the estate sale before Christmas I told you about. I have never seen one with a flat bottom and top. This was sitting in a china cabinet at the sale and I got it for half price at $4.00. I felt like that was a good deal. I like the flowers in this plate as well.
Here is the marking on the back of the platter. I have not tried to research the age of this yet, but after the holidays slow down, I plan on trying to find out a little more information on these new additions to my home.
I hope everyone had a great holiday. Truthfully, I am glad they are behind us and maybe we can get back on our regular routine. Thanks for letting me share with you some of my new platters. Have a great Thursday Everyone and a Happy New Year!
