Yesterday I showed you the dinning set that I picked up at an auction in my home town; today I'll show you the smalls (that's what she said).
Noritake Mardi Gras china set. This set is an almost complete (isn't that always the way-sigh) setting for eight plus some serving pieces (bonus!). There are 8 dinner plates, 7 shallow salad bowls, 7 bread plates, 7 saucers, 8 coffee cups, 4 berry bowls (what's up with mid mod dishes and berry bowls- they must have had a real "thing" for berries), 2 soup/ cereal bowls, a plater plus the creamer & sugar. I have to admit, this set makes me think of Howard Johnson's; maybe it's the colours, orange, yellow and brown.
By the way, the dining set sitting in my father's condo garage until I can (1) get a truck to bring it to Columbus and (2) make some space in my house, get a storage unit or maybe set up at an antique mall.
