Yesterday I had a few spare minutes and stopped at my local Salvation Army thrift store and there they were. Five plates that I knew were going to be an exact color match to the set of vintage creamy white, gold edged dishes I bought about a month ago. Different pattern, different company, but so similar. They were only 45 cents apiece. But the real clincher was the monogram... an "M".
Sometimes you just hafta.
The plate at the top is from the set I bought earlier, the bottom stack is the new set of 5 plates. Perfect match.
Stacked. Sorry about the camera strap, great photographer that I am.
monogrammed plate...The Salem China Company; Salem, Ohio; pattern #9053, wreath monogram.
bottom plate...Triumph, American Limoges; Sebring, Ohio; Hollywood pattern; 22-K gold.
