Vintage 1950s Multifloral Dinner Plates by Edwin Knowles - Set of Five
Mere color can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways. Oscar Wilde
Like a lush and bountiful summer garden bouquet, these pretty vintage dinner plates are bursting with color and cottage charm. Made by Edwin Knowles in the mid-20th century, this pattern although unmarked is similar to their Serenade pattern, which featured a similar bouquet but also swags of flowers around the rim as well. Designed in the Puritan shape, these plates are rimmed with gold and contain an embossed edge that mirrors the outline of a flower petal.
Based in West Virginia between 1900-1963, Edwin M. Knowles made some of the prettiest dishware in the country with patterns that were colorful, feminine, and visually striking. This set of five dinner plates is no exception. Colors include pink, lavender, blue, butter, tangerine, watermelon green, magenta, sage, periwinkle, and bluebell - a veritable rainbow of shades to create a variety of different tablescapes for continual creativity.
So pretty for spring and summer entertaining, garden parties, Mother's Day brunch, and Easter festivities, these plates are also a lovely option for wall decorations too. Each plate contains its own unique character with fine crazing marks and a few light stains adding age and depth to their overall patina. However you choose to incorporate them, these beauties will make your space bloom with beauty.
