Ooooh, Janeray, look what I found!Posted: November 13, 2013 Filed under: Fun Finds, Placesettings | Tags: Bakelite, RED, tablecloths 7 Comments
Bakelite flatware. RED Bakelite flatware.
(Wait, did I spell that right?)
Faye, our dealer-neighbor at The Vintage Bazaar, had a giant box of it in her shop downtown. I grabbed all the pieces that weren’t wobbly or brittle. Faye told me that somebody else had already snapped up most of the soup spoons. Darn.
It’s not a matching set. There are at least seven different patterns here. You’ll have to mix and match the place settings.
I like it better that way, anyway. Hope you do, too.
Yep, they’re for you!
So similar to the ones I have in our Shasta. You didn’t see them when you took the tour. They go with our Melmec dishes! Love them also. ….Lorretta
PS. I’m especially in LOVE with the tablecloth they’re sitting on!
Hi Lorretta! Red Bakelite and Melmac, especially green Melmac, would be a fantastic combo! Sorry I missed it in your Shasta. If you all come back to Salisbury in the spring I will catch it then. And that is a great tablecloth, isn’t it? I think it’s poppies. Fortunately I get to keep the tablecloth—only the Bakelite goes to Janeray.
It’s hibiscus, Luray! I bet it looks great with your white china.
Duh. I am a floradunce.
Either way it fabulous just the same!
Wahoo!!! What a fabulous find! And mine?!?! Even fabulouser!! You’re an awesome partner in crime. 🙂
