The Pink Lady Collection - 1940s Mismatched Vintage Plates and Bowls - Set of 4 Pieces
My parents told me I'd point to a bed of flowers and say "Pink. Pretty," before I knew any other words. Joni Mitchell
Full of femininity, this collection of soup bowls and dinner plates combines lovely shades of pink and floral transferware with embossed edging for a completely delicate and complimentary serving set. Comprised of two dinner plates and two large soup bowls, these pieces were made between the 1930's-1960's and each is marked on the back with makers marks. One has traveled international waters, another has seen service at a restaurant, and all are rarities in the land of vintage dish collections. Hand-selected for their similar color palates and style, these four bring a pretty sense of style to all spaces and offer a bevy of unique styling options when it comes to setting a stunning table.
- This set features the following colors: ballet pink, salmon, cranberry, ice pink, grey, white, celery green, sea green, butter yellow, ivory, charcoal, and gold.
- The collection includes the following pieces:
----- One 10" inch Crocksville China Co. dinner plate featuring the rare James California Poppy pattern in pastel shades of pink, green and yellow. Made in the USA circa 1949
----- One 9.75" inch Royal Wessex White Ironstone dinner plate made by Swinnertons featuring an embossed swirl style edge. Bright white. Made in England sometime between the 1930's and 1940's.

Each piece is in lovely vintage condition. The Norway Rose bowl bears some rub marks around the gold rim and has a small quarter inch chip on the bottom underside of the rim (this cannot be seen from the front). The California Poppy plate also contains rub marks around the gold rim and contains light crazing marks on both sides. The ironstone plate and the restaurant ware bowl contain no chips, cracks or crazing. Please see photos.
Eclectic, bohemian and stylishly interesting, vintage mismatched china patterns look marvelous in kitchens featuring similar colors. They also make pretty starter kits or gifts for first time-on-their-owners and housewarming gifts.
