Vintage 1970s Floral Cake Plate Chop Platter - Petite Flora Interpace Ironstone - Made in Japan for Sears
And the secret garden bloomed and bloomed and every morning revealed new miracles. Frances Hodgson Burnett
As bright and fresh as a spring day, this vintage round floral platter, with its swirling green leaves and orange and yellow flowers, was made in the late 1970's in Japan by Interpace (the International Pipe and Ceramics Corporation). Originally, it was intended to serve as a chop plate, not the most glamorous of tasks, but thanks to its accommodating size, it is also a perfect stand-in for service as a cake plate, an hors d'oeuvres tray or a serving platter.
Once part of a whole pattern line, appropriately named Petite Flora, this patten was sold through Sears department stores, alongside their popular Federalist Ironstone pattern which mixed and matched nicely with Petit Flora thanks to a similar shape and complimentary color palette.
