Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; and good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts. James Beard
We have a few pieces of Crown Pottery china in the shop. We like them imparticular for their feminine colors and pretty transferware designs. Made in Evansville, IN Crown Potteries produced china between the years 1882-1956. This set of pink and grey floral bread and butter plates was made in May 1948 and is a hard to find pattern.

In addition to traditional bread and butter plate usage, these ladies also work great for small plate dinners, tapas sharing and even drink coasters for big cups of coffee. If you live in a small space you'll appreciate the fact that their petite size also packs a mighty big punch in the pretty department.
