My hubby usually doesn’t miss a thing when it comes to the house.
He knows exactly what is new and what has been moved.
He is very observant when it comes to the house and actually, in all aspects of life.
He recently spied something new and said,
“oh that’s nice . . . and a lot of green!”
Yes, they are my new found treasures!
Can you guess where I found these pretty Majolica plates?
I think most of you know by now. Yes, I found them at my fav consignment shop,
Always Home in Durham, NC.
Actually I was at the counter checking out and saw a collection
of Majolica plates that just came in and the shop owner was just preparing to price them.
I have never collected Majolica as the prices were a bit steep
when I would see them in the various antique shops.
However, I can tell you that these were very reasonably priced.
The first plate that caught my eye was the one with the pineapple design.
That plate needed to come home with me.
Then I thought, after looking through the collection of the Majolica,
I really should get two more plates. To create a collection.
There were so many to choose from; however, I chose to go with two small platters
as they would look great on the wall as a small grouping.
Other than the plate with the pineapple design, I think the platter displayed
in the center is my favorite. I love the intricate design.
I am not sure of the name of the design/manufacturer, but from what I can gather,
these plates are most likely English. There are no hallmarks/stamps on the plates.
I have not been able to find these patterns on the internet but will keep searching
or consult my antique extraordinaire friend.
Such a pretty grape vine design in a deep emerald green.
In the days of me trying to downsize my collections, I start another one!
Well just a little collection of three!
It was great to be able to bring these beauties home and not break the bank.
Oh, I mentioned that I was at the check out counter
when I spied the collection of Majolica . . . I was paying for a pair of things
that I have visited in the shop on a few occasions and finally decided to get them.
They could be a new addition in a room, OR, a gift to a sister that would love them.
I wish you all a most beautiful day!!!
And . . . if you know the names of these patterns of Majolica, please let me know!
