White plates are best for food photography, SWMBO is doing that professionally as part of her retirement "job".

Looks delicious, we're having a beef goulash tonight made with an expensive Hungarian paprika.


Do you have any Noritake from before WW2? My grandmother had some wonderful pieces.



We don't think so. Will look.


When we closed my parents' house my sister threw away 3 soup bowls that I thought were pretty.
I retrieved them from the discard pile.
They are 1910 "Non-Vitreous, Buffalo Pottery" Blue Willow. I don't know if age turned them mustard brown & blue, or if that was an alternate design. I hadn't thought about them until your picture.
American made. https://www.thesprucecrafts.com/buffalo-pottery-and-china-149241

The steak looks very appetizing.

Thanks for posting a palate cleansing course to all the political news.
Over half of my neighbors have Biden signs in their windows.
If I displayed a Trump sign my house would be vandalized.
So I display one or another from a stash of beautiful calendar page pictures.



I hope you still have them I would treasure them.


I believe you got pieces of Blue Willow by saving certificates on the sides of Betty Crocker cake mixes, way back when. It was the rage and everyone tried to collect more pieces than their neighbors. Which paid off in a lot of cakes for us kids. Angel Food Cake was the real treat, but yellow cake with 7 minute frosting and coconut was a very good second

Blue Willow china pieces also created by own childhood image of "China", only to learn one one rarely finds China itself ever looking like that - unless visiting the enclosed Chinese Gardens in cities like Shanghai, Imperial City, or Suchow etc.; certainly not most of the Chinese country side.

Where is my "Blue Willow" China I kept wailing, as I made my way across this dusty country and often barren in the 1990's. Guide laughed, he had heard this many times before.


Fred, I have tons of grandma's Noritake china, made during the 1920s. Is there something special about its value??? I'd love to know!
