One of my first collections was lusterware- mainly the colors from the 50's.


These purple cups with orange on the inside are little snack plates. They are marked from Czechoslovakia. Most of the colors I collect are either from Czechoslovakia or Japan. I love the sheen of lusterware and how delicate they are.



These three cups and saucers have a very interesting and unusual pattern.




The only teapot I have. In great condition really.


Amazingly, it has it's sugar pot too.


And these are a few mismatched tea cups and a creamer. They are wonderful to hold bobbins of thread.


They have a pearlized inside.

I find it at flea markets- mainly church rummages and yard sales really.

Meg said...

What beautiful pieces. I had a question about flicr, how do you add more than one photo to a post?

Karyn said...

So pretty! Do you use these or just display them?

I don't really use them, but think I should! They have kind of taken a back corner lately as I don't have many good display areas. I think I will put my collection up on my soon to open etsy shop

They are lovely. I never knew that those dishes were called that. My mom has a few pieces tucked away.
