1940s Pink and Grey Floral Bread & Butter Plates - Crown Potteries USA 5 48- Made in Indiana - Set of 4
Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; and good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts. James Beard
This set of pink and grey floral bread and butter plates was made in May 1948 and is now a hard-to-find pattern. Always a favorite maker in the shop, we like Crown Pottery pieces in particular for their feminine colors and pretty transferware designs. They produced dishware between the years 1882 and 1956, signifying that early 20th-century aesthetic that immediately adds vintage charm to the table and the kitchen no matter how you incorporate it.

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.
