Vintage 1940s Floral Bread and Butter Plates - Warwick China Company USA - Set of 4
If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden. Frances Hodgson Burnett
There are two lovely antique potteries bearing the Warwick name - one in England and one in America. The Warwick we are referring to here in this listing is located in Wheeling, West Virginia and is officially known as the Warwick China Company. In business from 1887 to 1951, they produced semi-porcelain tableware in a variety of patterns and colors. These plates, made during the 1940's, are unidentified as far as pattern name but they feature beautiful pink roses and bouquets of garden flowers inside a ruffled, embossed rim. Bright, feminine and delicate they are a pretty nod towards vibrant table settings of the past.
- Colors include spring green, pea green, pale raspberry, lemon yellow, purple, pale blue, butter yellow and cornflower.
- Embossed fluted edge with ruffle design
No cracks or crazing, but there is a small chip on the back of each of the dishes near the rim. None of these chips are evident from the front and none affect the use of the plates in any way. Please see photos.
Each plate measures 6" inches in diameter.
These bread and butter plates look especially pretty with these vintage cloth napkins.
