Vintage Thingy Thursday

Another Vintage Thingy Thursday, hosted by Suzanne at Coloradolady.
I have a new item. It is new to me. But is old and probably vintage. I got it at a flea market/antique store on a recent mad rush lunch hour visit. It is a four piece cup and dessert plate set.If you look closer you can see the little rim inset for the cup to sit in the dessert plate. And see the slight handle on one side of the plate?It is a pink dogwood blossom design. The bottom is stamped UCAG CO CHINA. (Not made in China, but stating it is china.) The dessert plate is in the shape of a shell with a scallop edge. This will be the first of this kind to add to my dish collection.

Go here to check out other Vintage Thingy Thursday posts. And thank you fitty's pinky rose cottage for commenting that these are a cherry blossom pattern. I didn't know what it was really. It's nice to get info on VTT.

  12. Yes, these were really popular in the 50's and 60's. Ladies would host some kind of selling party and these were good to serve refreshments on. Your's are extra pretty.
