I have been collecting restaurant china for years. Today, I am just showing you some of the pieces that I was able to gather together fairly easily to photograph. I seem unable to pass up a platter at a thrift store. They are handy! Sturdy, pretty, useful - I could go on and on in my attempt to justify the practicality of these dishes.
But I really don't have to, do I?
These pink and green platters or grill plates, below, are perfect for serving up steak or fish. I have four of the pink and white bread plates, also:
The yellow platter in the next photo is one of my more recent acquisitions. I love the small yellow dinner plates, too. And I rounded up some of my yellow creamers for this photo. You remember my creamers, don't you? I will devote another post to them one of these days:
Black and green creamers on parade here. ( Two of those small creamers on the left are dark green.) See that stack of bowls? I bought those in Jackson, California at Dandelion Days years ago. They are one of my favorite sets. We use them every day. I happen to have a lone butter pat that matches that striped individual creamer I use as a toothpick holder. You might not even want to get me started on the butter pats. I went a little crazy on them, like I did the creamers.
Maybe one of these days I will devote a post to the butter pats, too.
Oh - and I have a collection of restaurant china teapots, too.
