Vintage 1940s Pink Rose Luncheon Plates - Taylor Smith Taylor circa 1948
As a background for the food you serve, your table should be as inviting as you can make it. Cooking for Company, 1968
It's fun to imagine that by the 1960s, twenty years after this trio of plates was made, the trend in table setting was mix and match - a style that avoided monotony and encouraged creativity when it came to serving up something delicious.
This trio is perfect for such inspiration. Made by Taylor Smith Taylor in West Virginia in March of 1948, these luncheon plates contain just the right amount of bright colors to create not one, not two, but a bevy of unique arrangements. Containing multiple shades of pink and green, they are especially lovely for spring and summer dining as they carry hues of the garden that can be easily coordinated with fa variety of floral centerpieces.
Made during the optimistic years of post-WWII, we like to think that these dishes partied the decade away as home cooks could finally rest, relax and revel in the fact that the war was over and joy could be celebrated once again.
Easygoing entertainment. That's what these dishes signify. Feminine without being fussy, the big blooms offer relaxed style and simple beauty - something that is always welcoming.
