Life has puffed and blown itself into a summer day... Zelda Fitzgerald
Billowy and blousy like a big bouquet of blue hydrangeas, these two platters are beauties to behold. Oversized, with scalloped edges,a green stripe and a gorgeous bouquet, they are full of marvelous possibilities.
Made by Tominaga China, a pottery based in Japan, these plates most likely date to the 1970s/1980s era when pastel chintzes, Laura Ashley, and romantic florals were a big part of the decorating landscape. Unknown as to pattern name, as info on Tominaga China is quite scarce these days, these plates feature a gorgeous bouquet of peonies tucked inside clusters of blue and pink flowers.
Big and bold, they may have been originally intended as chargers to show off their colorful floral rims or possibly intended as cake plates, chop plates, or serving platters. But any way you look at them, you'll be sure to find a dozen uses. Here in the Vintage Kitchen, we just love plates like that. We styled them with a batch of complimentary solid and floral mismatched vintage plates so you'd get an idea of just how pretty they are with other dishes.
Gorgeous as decoration for your table or your wall, there are two platters available, but each is sold separately. Please note, both are exactly the same except that one platter has a small stress crack on the back which can happen when a dish is set down too hard on a surface (please see photo). This crack is insignificant and does not bleed through to the front. The other platter is flaw-free.
