Vintage China

I am hopefully linking up to Vintage Love Saturday with Southern Lady's Vintage. This week is Vintage China!

My grandparents received this set from their church for their 25th wedding anniversary. It is from Lynmore and is the Golden Rose pattern. The date would be circa 1956. I have plates, cups, saucers, small bowls, and serving dishes. I never saw them use it, but it has a few chips, so I know they must have when I wasn't looking!



I found this set at an estate sale and I just love the colors - plum and turquoise! I haven't been brave enough to use them for eating, but I get to see them every day in my china cabinet. They are an American-made Knowles pattern called Chalet. I think from the 60s, but not positive.

Annette, I am thrilled that you were able to join in this week! I love it that you have your grandparent's old china. The Golden Rose pattern is very pretty! I think that is precious that you have held on to it! I also love the Knowles that you found! The turquoise and plum look so pretty together! Thanks for joining in this week!

Yay, we both finally made it to the party!

Love the rose dishes. The bit of yellow in the roses makes them so much richer, very nice.

Great Knowles pattern too. They are quickly becoming one of my favorite companies.

Thanks for sharing!
