In addition to the three things my husband found, I got all this for $28!!!!! Jackpot!
Aside from all that creamy white goodness, it's the details and the imperfections I love about ironstone.
The chips and discoloration
Add so much character
Check out the gorgeous scalloped edges!
Any one know what these dishes are meant to be used for? Bread? Butter? *Update: These are bone plates. Thanks Oniwolda, Kelley, and Jan for answering my question!!
There's something about old graters I love too!
And check out this cutie I picked up at an antique store also on Friday
And here's two more grain scoops I found to add to my growing collection. I have six now!
I know there were lots of pictures so if you made it to the end thanks for sticking around and letting me share with you life through my lens. I am having so much fun playing and learning how to use my new camera! Now, if only my two year would sit still long enough to get some great shots of him. :)

I recently went to a thrift store with my great aunt and we saw some dishes like the ones you are wondering about. She told me these dishes snug up to the plates and you put your bones in them.ReplyDelete

Oh... I'm so jealous! I did find a great Ironstone plater with a transferware pattern this weekend, complete with crazing! My hubby looks at it and say's is it supposed to look like that? Yes, it's called crazing. Gravy he says, why does it have gravy on it. lolReplyDelete
