My windmill dishes are by Universal Cambridge. This windmill design was one in their Camwood Ivory line. Some are trimmed in blue, others in 22 carat gold. I love the design. The colors can vary just a bit due to use and/or fading, but on the best examples the clouds are a lovely aqua and the water a deep, rich blue. This is from the center of a small dinner plate:
My very first piece, and the beginning of my windmill collecting madness, was a large serving platter I found in 1975 at a rummage sale in the basement of the Lutheran Church in Placerville. It was sitting there on a table with 3 fabulous huge garden-fresh Beefsteak tomatoes on top. There was a sticker that said 50c. I would have paid that for just the tomatoes! So, I timidly asked if that was for the tomatoes or the platter. And the nice lady said - "Both". Sold! I've never tired of this pattern since that day. This is the lid from a covered bowl:
These next two pictures are from a desperation style I like to call FitEverySingleDishYouPossiblyCanIntoYourHutch. The left side:
and the right side:
And , when I couldn't possibly fit another piece in, what did I do? Why, I bought more, of course, and they went in various places I like to call WhereverTheHeckElseYouCanFitThemIn. Yep, that's how we roll.
