The Closest I Will Get to My Christmas Dishes This Year

 

Do you ever just stop and do a double-take when you are looking at a magazine because you see something familiar?

I do.  And I would bet you do too. 

Recently, I was casually looking at a Country Living and suddenly came to a halt when I saw this:

red-plates-country living like my currier and ives hl (2)

Yep.  Homer Laughlin Currier and Ives red transferware.

Just like mine.   Well, actually I do not have the teapot.

But I do have 3 sets of double-handled cream soup bowls that are not included in those shown above.  Sweet!

Here is an old poor quality photo of mine mixed in with a few other things.  They are not REALLY Christmas dishes but I always thought they looked especially pretty at Christmas.  I guess someone else thought so too!   Seeing the magazine photo makes me happy I did not sell mine.  At least not yet.  Which reminds me….I need to sell more dishes.

Mine are packed away for now, so I won’t use them this Christmas.  Sometimes life just gets a little hectic.

your collection is gorgeous! Don't keep it stowed away. Since my customer sent me one piece as a gift and finding two more recently and now seeing yours.....I think I definitely will start collecting. Should I collect only the Currier & Ives or a mix and match group of red transfer ware?
