About 9 years ago I stumbled upon a pattern of restaurant ware dishes that I fell in love with.
It is made by Wellsville and is a pattern from 1959.
I have learned from searching for the pattern that it came in 4 colors, black, red, blue and green. I have never seen it in blue or green. I have red and black.
The cool thing about restaurant ware is that it came in a huge assortment of sizes and shapes. Think about any diner meal you have had and what a load of plates the waitress would bring to the table. The picture above shows diner plates, 2 sizes of bread or side plates and the red & black version of the vegetable sides. I love using the vegetable sides.
The top piece is a big serving platter, the bottom is like the oval plates that meals are served on, can't you picture a BLT on it with chips on the side.
A big serving bowl and a smaller serving bowl. The box that I received this week had 4 of the smaller bowls in it. I can just picture using them as pasta bowls or for when we have large salads for dinner.
I have 2 of these long celery dishes. We use then in the summer for corn on the cob and sometimes for side of fries.
I don't drink tea or coffee or entertain so I don't really use these. Look at the different shapes. I have seen a picture of a mug but have yet to find any of my own.
The large red gravy boat was in the box too. It is much bigger than the black one.
I have a sugar and creamer too. And the small soup cups.
Are you with me still? Can you tell I love using these?
So what other pieces are out there? I have seen pics of a couple of different bowl styles a round rimmed soup bowl and cereal bowls. Anyway the hunt continues and they bring me joy every time I have a meal.
Here's a little progress...
Yes, I couldn't just work on the border.
I hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend! I have to go get ready for a wedding :)
