Vintage Thingie Thursday: Small Vintage Plates and Platters


Hello Everyone! Welcome to this weeks segment of Vintage Thingies Thursday. Thursday is the day to showcase your vintage treasures and to share your special things with everyone.

If you are visiting and would like to join us, please do. It is very easy! All you have to do is (1) do a post about something vintage. (2) Visit all the participates and leave a comment. (3) Link in with the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post. (4) Be sure to refer back to my blog so everyone can see who is participating today, and if you like include the VTT button in your post. Please be sure to have your post up before linking in. Thanks so much. Sorry, I really don't like complicated rules for these memes, so I have tried to simplify this down to the minimum. Don't be shy, we have fun every week. Join us if you can.

This week, I want to show you a few of my smaller vintage platters. These are really smaller than my normally large platters I collect. I hope you enjoy looking at these today.

This one is in the USA and is stamped Upico Ivory on the back side. This measures 9 in. wide and is about 3/4 in. deep. I love the orange rim and the floral design in the middle.

I really like the design on this little plate. I know it is not a platter, but it is one of my favorite. I picked this up at a tag sale for 5 cents. This is a Homer Laughlin plate, measures 6" X 6" and has the same orange rim as the smaller platter above.
Here is a close up of the design in the middle of the plate. Very hacienda looking.

This platter is marked STERLING VITRIFIED CHINA D-5, East Liverpool, Ohio. It has a burgundy rim that looks like leaves. I really like the look of this platter. I purchased this at an antique store in Walnut Springs, Texas for $2.00. I think that was a great find.

I hope you enjoyed looking at a few of the plates and platters in my collection. Have a great week everyone and happy treasure hunting.

    like one I have.... a very similar
    pattern...I will have to compare
    my dish with yours. It will be fun

  14. Yes lovely platters on show today, I must say I am very fond of the last one with the red leaf trim!! Very nice!!

  15. I'll be back for Mr. Linky also but I just had to chime in; I love the red bordered one also.
    $2.00 ; heh. funny. One of the wonderful things about vintage is that we can sometimes find them inexpensive and yet, it's something that you can't find anywhere else.

    I'm in the mood to go antiquing now...

  16. The dark red border is my favourite, too!
    I'm participating with some handicraft books here: http://kotkarankki.blogspot.com/2009/01/vintage-thingies-13-old-handicraft.html

  20. Lovely Platters! I love all things red and white.

  21. I like the one with the red leaves border but the other one would be appropriate if I ever do move to Arizona.

    Oh and I had to refresh the page to get Mr. Linky to show up, but he did.

  22. Suzanne, love the platters! In looking at your previous VTT posts, I had to LOL at the one telling about your mom with the red hair - my mom (Agnes) did also!!!

    I miss Mr. Linky, also - don't know who else is involved except for the ones who leave messages.

Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
