Howdy! I am so excited this is my first tablescape! I still haven't found my nice camera's charger yet so I am still using my iphone. I know, tisk, tisk on me!
Tablescapes - What a fun way for everyone to get out our treasures and USE them! I am a big believer in using the silver everyday! It creates memories!
During college (about 2000) I fell in love with collecting dishes! I started trying to fill out a set of crystal dinnerware that I was given when my grand mother Meme passed away. THEN I discovered that there were several western patterns of china made in the 1940's through 1960's.
So I started collecting antique western china! Whoo - hoo! It has been loads of fun! I have several patterns to share with you in the future!
This pattern was made by Fred Roberts China Co. in the 1950's. I was told that they were rewards for buying clothes soap. Yes, you bought a box of soap and inside was a western plate! Can you believe it? It is like cereal toys for moms!
The glassware is by Bamco. It is not antique. But they are great because you can throw them in the dishwasher! There is a bucking horse on the tea glass if you can't quite tell.
The sterling is Francis the First by Reed and Barton. It was my great-Granmother's. I cherish it!
Oh, and the linens are from Pottery Barn too. I think this color was available in 2008.
The bread and butter plates are vintage fiesta.
This is the condiment set in the Fred Roberts Western pattern. There are tops and spoons for the little containers which are to be used for ketchup, mustard, salt and pepper. The tray is wooden. Although, this condiment tray was designed for a western BarBQ I though some Don Juan roses from the garden would look nice for a center piece! Lots of fun!
Love the aqua wagons and campfire scenes.
A steer head.
The water pitcher is from Pottery Barn (circa 2008). The sugar and creamer set is a treasure I found somewhere. These cuties were made sometime in the 1950's in Japan.
The cowboy and cowgirl are waiting at the stagecoach stop.
Although there are not a ton of pieces in this pattern, there is a salad bowl that is a wonderful size (10 inch diameter).
This cutting board I found at Round Top. It is very rare.
The tray is probably the most amazing piece. Although the photo doesn't do it justice (I will improve!) it is lovely!
I have few more pieces somewhere that I will show another time.
You can see how big the tray is in this photo! I thought some of the mothers out there might appreciate this photo. I was trying to take photos and Klacey was helping! Hope everyone has a great day!
