As I mentioned yesterday, I'm visiting thrift stores in search of colorful china. I'm mainly interested in solid colors to make a mismatched set of dishes to serve our meals on but I'm also planning to hang some colorful dishes on the dining area wall.
This is a shallow bowl. It was priced at $3.99 which is more than I'm usually willing to pay. However, it is unusual and colorful so it went home with me.
Here you see that back of the piece and get a better feel for the bowl shape. Notice there at the top of the base rim there are two holes. Clearly this was meant to hang somewhere.
I found this plate for $1. It is larger than a saucer but smaller than a dinner plate. It is marked "World Market" on the back so it isn't old or particularly collectable. I bought it for the color and design.
Are you seeing a theme here? I hope so.
