Dishes, the Good China, Plates & Bowls, Table Settings…
By whatever name you call them, and from whatever material— china, porcelain, ironstone, corelle, plastic, metal, wood, etc.— these items are a household necessity. Since the caveman laid his dinner on a large leaf or flat rock, people have been using some sort of dish to serve their food. Sets of dishes may be referred to as a table service, dinner service or service set. Tableware may include plates, bowls, saucers and serving pieces, as well as cutlery and glassware, but for the present I am featuring some lovely dishes (plates, bowls, saucers, etc.) that I have found on my appointed junking rounds. Most of the pieces I am hi-lighting today were made in the first half of the 20th Century, and all at least four decades ago.

These are 9 1/8 inches in diameter and considered a luncheon or salad plate. Overall quite nice. some crazing and faded or scrapped spots on the gold trim.

Exquisite Eggshell Nautilus 10 inch dinner plates. This listing is for one plate. At present, I have six of them. Contact me if you would like a price on multiple plates. these 1944 plates made by Homer Laughlin China are a pretty off-white or cream on the outer portion– more white in the center. Dainty floral groupings are spaced around the outer edge, as are flourishes of 22k gold trim. The Aristocrat Pattern was popular as a Wedding China.

Saucers and Small Plates

No cups but I have four beautiful floral chintz saucers in Taylor Smith Taylor pattern #TST 407 . These are as pretty as Springtime! In great vintage condition for their age. A few tiny fleabites, slight amount of crazing and a bit of wear on the gold (or platinum?) trim. 6 inch Diameter. See photos for more information. I am selling these together.
This 5 1/2 inch diameter saucer made in Bavaria by Bauer, Rosenthal & Co. is clearly marked on the back and signed with what looks like the initials M.C. (I am not sure of this, see photos). It is in near perfect vintage condition. The hand painted design is a watercolor style floral in shades of blue with some pink, green and pale yellow.

Pretty 1950s Lustreware serving bowl made by Yamatsu of Japan. Fluted golden yellow rim with a floral design in shades of deep pink and green inside.
Bowl is 7 inches in diameter and about 2 1/4 inches deep.

Turquoise blue atomic starburst pattern bowls made in the 1950s. Six Royal China’s Celeste Pattern salad bowls. Distinctively shaped mid century design.
These bowls are mostly in great vintage condition. There is no crazing, cracks or discoloration, but two bowls have very small chips in rims (one so slight I only found because I slid my finger along edge), and one has some imperfections in the finish which appear to have been from the factory. Bowls measure 6 1/2 inches (7 inches on edge with lip) in diameter, and 1 1/2 inches deep.
