Dish Auction Lot

The above dishes, minus a couple we gave niece, were in two boxes.
Some old ironstone. I will hang them up on wall.
Glasses are Glas Snap II by Corning.
Bottoms are like coasters that snap off.
My DH is calling them Jetson glasses. ;-)
Milk glass tooth pick holder, a small covered dish from France.
Also not pictured is a Bennington Pottery trigger mug...yes it is now my coffee mug!

I had to buy all 3 boxes to get these!
They look black I know but they are brown!
Staffordshire Royal Mail.
Not a whole set but enough to do four place settings.
I love them!

These are by Booths Blue Mist Tulip Made in England.
Only 3 plates with cups and saucers.
We did have Sunday lunch on these when niece was here...;-)
Feel delicate in the hand.

Pretty set of soup bowls and bread/salad/ dessert plates.
We looked and looked online for a pattern name for these to no avail.
Will have to send a scan or pic to Replacements too see if they can identify.

This is my DH's 1825 family church.
I wanted it for the old red color on cream of course..;-)
It is a 1951 plate.
Will share the third box contents tomorrow!
Still need to take some pics of them!

  3. lovely...we have my husband's grandmother's china from when she got married. we want to display it so bad, but right now, no room...it's packed away safely....it's plain white with a silver ring around the plate and a single pine needle and cone on it......love it
