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.
