Kitchen Adventures Post 3

Serving bowl
I think these might be Indiana Diamond Point but not sure.

 NOTE: did you know that dishes like these get really dirty shut up inside a kitchen cabinet? what's up with that? they haven't been used in years, they should be clean....


The best time to plan a book is while your are doing the dishes... Agatha Christie


Above and below are the edges of the divided relish tray. All of these dishes I have been showing belonged to my grandmother. When she died my Mother brought them home, then when Mother died, I brought them here..

I Googled until I had a head ache trying to find this tray, close but no bananas... if you want to see just how many they made during the depression, CLICK HERE.

Beautiful dishes!! I remember this Indiana Diamond Point, we used to have it. But I would have to look through lots more boxes. Wonder how much lead they have?

Ginny said...

It is TRUE!!! Shut up in a cabinet, they get sticky with dirt. Also my skinny clothes in the closet have dust all over the shoulders!!!

That relish tray is absolutely beautiful. I have seen pieces like all the others, I have some of the serving bowls, but I have never seen a tray like that.

What a lovely antique glass collection.

What lovely photos of such special pieces. WalMart sells Invisible Glass that is great for spraying down into the grooves you can't reach with a cloth.

I have the same glassware as in your first and last photo. I didn't know they had a name but will check it out. They are from my grandmother (maybe even her mother) as well. I also have a small collection of pink and some green depression glass. Oh yes, I have a tale I could tell about things getting dirty in cabinets!! Later, maybe.

Best,
Bonnie

GREAT kitchen adventure!

Love those points of reflection!

Stuff still gets dirty, shut up in kitchen cabinets...??? Guess some of the cooking vapors, get into the cabinets... And dust is everywhere... And vapors allow dust, to adhere.

Beautiful old dishes. Love that they are passed down from generation to generation. I have most of my mother's depression glass and love it. It is so fun to clean and get all shiny again!!

Inger said...

I have some depression glass plates, but I don't know a thing about stuff like this.

Susannah said...

I'm so happy you kept some of your mother's dishes. How proud you must be. The relish tray is beautiful...as well as the platter.

SweetMarie said...

How special! I really like the relish dish, it's really pretty! I have stuff in my china cabinet and kitchen cabinets and they do get dusty. Happy Saturday!

Chatty Crone said...

Very pretty pieces. And I am so with you - how in the world do things get dusty like that - or in a closed glass cabinet. Where does it come from?
