Rose Dishes

We're on vacation but I couldn't resist going back into my files and posting...I didn't want to miss out on the parties this week.

I apologize for not getting back to any of your helpful comments last week. With packing and trying to get ready to go, I just couldn't...I thought I would but it just didn't happen.

I found this large set of dishes at my favorite thrift store a few months ago. It could stand a few more cups but there are a dozen dinner plates and saucers. There are about 6 salad plates and 6 soup bowls.

I love the sugar bowl but the little creamer was missing. I just happened upon one for sale on Etsy so I grabbed it but I didn't take a picture to add to these.
I just love the pattern with the sweet pink roses and the blue and gold border. I wouldn't mind adding to this set.
The pattern is Mt. Vernon and it was made by Hall for Sears. I found them in an old Sears catalog...I need to ask Mr. Wild what year but they were featured as the top of the line dishes at that time in that catalog.

Thanks for visiting and I'll try to do better on returning comments.

We're out in wild and wonderful Wyoming working on our retirement place.

Gosh! These plates are just gorgeous. No wonder you snapped up a creamer to go with that sugar bowl.

Hi Faye...

Ohhh...what beautiful dishes! You scored BIG time...what a wonderful treasure find! Glad that you were able to find the creamer on ebay! This is the first time that I have seen this dish pattern. It really is lovely with the pretty pink roses and the beautiful blue and gold pattern! It will set a beautiful table for sure!

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful dishes with us for the Sunday Favorites party this week! It was a real pleasure to have you join in with the fun!

I just found your post a couple of years later...and see your china find. My grandmother had this as her wedding china...Married in the 1940's. I love it! I did not know it was from Sears. Interesting fact. -aimee
