I was raised by my Grandparents, well my Mom & sibling moved in with my maternal grandparents when my parents split up. Well anyway my Grandmother 's sister Aunt Ollie ran an antique gift shop in an old hotel in Sikeston Missouri back in the 1960's and this cream , sugar and old platter was Aunt Ollie's.
I remember going to Sikeston from Mt Vernon Illinois where we lived and visiting Aunt Ollie And Uncle John ( didn't we all have an uncle John? )
My Mom and Aunt Ollie was always talking dishes and antiques, Not my Grandma, Grandma and me was was trying to find something cool to drink and a cool room in the house, no air conditioner back them. Grandpa Baker and Uncle John was always sitting in the living room talking,
Now that I made this short story long. Anyway this cream & sugar and platter was Aunt Ollie's . My Mom got them out of her house when Aunt Ollie went to a nursing home with Ovarian cancer in 1968.
Then when my Mother died I took them because I remember them from Aunt Ollie's house . And Now brown & white transferware is so in
I didn't take a picture of just the platter , same pattern on it as the big cream & sugar
I like the inside of the creamer and this is not a small creamer and sugar bowl either
I showed some of my brown transferware dishes once but didn't get these in the post . This is an old jug I bought once and gave to my Mom to match Aunt Ollie's dishes .
Here is a closet I store some of my dishes , want to see a mess? LOL, really not much to look at now I see the picture
Way in the back is a Johnson Brother brown & white long platter
I found two of these transferware plates at a thrft store last week, one I never go to and there they laid
There is a blog and she has one of these in her header if I could remember which one I would add her blog name The Charm of Home , found it ( she changed her header LOL )
I never in my wildest thoughts, back when I was a kid would I believe I would grow up and talk about dishes like my Mom and Aunt Ollie, they both loved old dishes , now I do.
