American Chintz...





Funny things happen when you snoop around in your own garage...
you say things like:
"Ohhhhhh, that 's where I put that!"

"Where did that come from?"

"For the love of MIKE! That spider could carry a Buick on it's back!"

Anyway...I literally kicked some dishes and while taking a closer look to
see if I had broken anything, I came across these lovely pieces! I call
them "American Chintz" by Homer Laughlin.


I use the the dinner plate all the time, but I didn't remember that I had the
other pieces!



Isn't it a cute pattern!




All that cheery blue...
It makes me think of happy dishes that KORALEE would use!




I love the details on the edges too!





Search for it if you dare...this is the only information that each piece reveals!
{Coronet is the shape, not the pattern name...but it does narrow it down a bit}
I bought mine from THE MISSING PIECE a million years ago...maybe I'll go hunting for a bit more... :}

  10. What a cute pattern. If I find out what it's real name is when I'm out and about, I will be sure and let you know. And if I see some, I will let you know as well. I saw something very, very similar recently, and now I'm trying to remember where? If I see it again, I will take a picture of it for you.

    Happy Blue Monday...

  13. Very pretty dishes!!
    I did the same thing recently when I opened boxes from the attic that I had put away for the boys when they moved out. But the dishes inside were not the dishes that I thought I put in there. In fact, I couldn't even remember ever having the dishes that were packed away!!
    I senior moment , I guess!!

  24. Hi :) These are really sweet dishes; love the delicate flowers :) Isn't it amazing what one finds when you're not really looking for anything in particular. Perhaps that's how we should always look for things, lol :)

  33. What lovely dishes! It makes me want to go tackle my storage and see if I have anything interesting out there. More likely, though, I'd just find a lot of cobwebs. :)
