The tall pitcher and the tea pot are newer than the old ironstone. I bought them at a Marshall's store .
See that price tag hanging on the little covered compote well it is coming off.
I just love these large platters. I did use one once for my dinner plate.
I have an old ladle sticking down in the new Marshall pitcher.
Here is some of the markings on the bottom of the ironstone. I also collect pearl handled silverware. I haven't got any forks. I always find knives so I buy them when they are reasonable priced.
call me when you can , thats my friend who is in Washington DC
