Today, let’s take a look at some dishes from one of my favorite Pottery companies…Blue Ridge Pottery. Blue Ridge pottery is handpainted pottery from the (insert year here). There is a pattern or two or MANY for everyone. Florals, fruits, peasants and farm scenes are just a few of the patterns you can find. You can tell we love Blue Ridge:
Today, I’m using a rare pattern with the Ham and Egg design. Since we have a farm near the house, this is a pattern near and dear.
The table is set for a “Farmhouse” breakfast. I’m using:
Metal white lacy chargers (eBay)
Bordello Green cabbage plates (eBay)
Placemats (Old Farmer Almanac Store)
Flatware – First Love International (1937-73)
Franciscan Yellow Goblet and Sherbet (.50 each at Garage Sale)
The chickens are made by Royal Copley. Pottery was sold in the “Five and Dime” stores in the 40’s and 50’s. The planters were used by florist for small arrangements.
Here’s another Royal Copley chick along with an egg scale. I love “General Store” type items. You can see this egg is a Large…and is exactly what the carton said. It really works!
The pottery bowl with the eggs is made by McCoy. It is called “Girl Watering Flowers”.
Every proper table needs a crumber! We found this set in a small shop in Leslie, Arkansas on one of our trips. It does have a monogram which happens to be my maiden name letter…SOLD! Gently scrape the crumbs off your table with the knife into the tray. Love it!
I folded a tea stained doily inside the pocket of a napkin. Placed the fork inside and used little metal chicks around the fork.
Thanks for visiting today. Come back and I may have actually cooked some “Ham and Eggs”!
