The first thing that caught my eye was the box of W S George, Blushing Rose box of china.
The gold scalloped edge on the white background with a scattering of the tiny flowers caused my heart to skip a beat. I do believe it was love at first sight.
The W S George company produced this pattern between 1930 and 1945. The company went out of business in the late 50's.
Inside the box was a large oval serving platter, two smaller platters, three vegetable bowls, four different sizes of bowls, three various sizes of plates, cups and saucers, and a creamer that had the lid to the sugar bowl on top of it.
I believe this was a service of eight, but most pieces had six and seven pieces remaining. I just love these dishes.
When I look at these sweet dishes it evokes happiness and thoughts of warm summer days on the patio eating lunch watching the children play in the backyard. Please note it evokes this feeling, in reality I use paper plates and plastic cups when we eat on the deck, not a patio, and I usually am yelling stop throwing sand it will get into someone's eyes.
Several times Darlene said to me, "if you like them take them, no one will want to buy them at the rummage sale." I know different someone will happily scoop them up.
I certainly don't need this set of dishes, but I really, really WANT them.
Here a a few more iPhone photos that I snapped of items for sale.
The smalls will be brought over for the sale sometime this week, I am looking forward to seeing those items.
