I was so excited to see Topanga Vintage Market touted as a top source for vintage china, flatware and all things tableware in this great article about vintage table settings from LA Daily News !
Apparently mixing and matching patterns and services is a new thing (my grandmother might disagree!) I have to say, it looks very beautiful in the photos and makes sense to a “pinch of this, dash of that” kind of gal like me.
I decided to bring out my own special china and create a “curated table” of my own. I had a limited amount yet very wide style range to work with. Very formal gold rimmed Phoenixware china from England, and hand thrown ceramic Vince Kitira plates from Thailand, a few Russel Wright pieces, and 1930’s bakelite flatware. The Wright pieces were all wrong, but the rest seemed to hit if off. OK, so here goes!
Not too bad! Unfortunately I only have enough pieces to do a table for three. Always an awkward number! SO, I guess I will be joining the shoppers at our fall shows hunting for more pretty pieces for larger gatherings around my table.
Here’s a preview of what you might find for your own holiday table:
See you there!
