Fancy Schmancy China

I'm so excited because this week I came across some beautiful China that pairs 
PERFECTLY with my current China Set!
Isn't that a pretty setting?
The patterned piece is from my original China collection.
It's by Gorham and is called Lorenzo Di'Medici.
I guess I should explain that "I LOVE MY CHINA".
Ok I know that sounds cooky & I never thought I'd even own a set of china, but I lusted over an 8 piece place setting at a thrift shop for about 6 months before finally biting the bullet and bringing it home.
The store wanted an outrageous amount for it, so it sat in a case forever.  I stopped in one day when they were having a huge sale & BAM, it was mine!!!  We actually use China more than I thought we would, and I'm happy to add a few contrasting pieces in the mix.  These are the new additions.
When I spotted these Beautiful Teal Plates this week I knew they would match perfectly!  The China is by Flintridge of California and I believe the pattern is called Platinum Teal.  There was a set of 6 plates and 4 salad plates, but unfortunately 1 of the salad plates was broken.
I purchased all 10 pieces for under $5!  SCORE!
So, now I have this!  I love it and will keep my eyes peeled for additional pieces of either of the sets...
and I hope you will too!
Cheers ~ Lara

  1. I just love your teal plates--gorgeous! I didn't know about the Oneida reissue of Russel Wright (just googled it after seeing your post). Interesting!
