Treasure Chest Thursday – The Tulip Platter

This entry is part 5 of 9 in the series Treasures and Curiosities

In keeping with the spring season, here is a platter which I am lucky to have. I remember it on the evening dinner tables of my childhood days. For some reason, I see ham when I see this plate, and believe I should have ham.

I have always thought of this as the Tulip plate, but I also see other things, like the Lilly of the valley.

There is no mark of any kind on the back of the plate, and I have no idea of its origin or if anyone owned it before my parents. I have vague memories of a teapot, but I believe it just had the red flower, so it was probably not part of a set.

This platter is a great reminder of simple days, and a good ham dinner!

    Hi Pam,
    Your plate looks like one ladies hand painted. With no stamp on the back it most likely was purchased as a blank plate and someone took a class in china painting. Just a thought.

    Thank you for the comment, Marilyn. Interesting idea. Since I would never think of paining anything, that never occurred to me. I do have a metal tray that I was told an aunt made in a class, I guess it was pretty common for ladies to do crafts like that. Thanks for commenting, and thanks for reading!
