~~~Another thrilling chapter in the "Ye Olde Curiosity Shop" dish saga~~~
I was at Goodwill, the last of the 5, when I spotted these!!!
I truly wish I had a picture of them on the shelf....the rain outside had subsided and in a brief sunny clearing a dazzling beam of sunlight came in through a window and was shinning on these dishes. It was a moment to behold.
I could not believe my eyes there was the beautiful covered casserole with lid intact.
I could see the oval platter peeking out from behind.
What is that small plate with the candle sconce mirror? I don't recognize it.
Oh too funny...are those the ashtrays?
Well they were all stacked on the very top shelf and if I moved the front pieces the back would topple over. I frantically searched for a tall person to come to my aid and hand them down to me. A very sweet, taller, lady was happy to oblige.
In my last post (which I started composing in November of 2016) the covered casserole and the oval platter were on my wish list.
The $79.99 price tag went down to $72.00 (love that senior discount). And just like that I added 23, perfect pieces of Royal, Ye Old Curiosity Shop, green transfer-ware dishes to my ever expanding collection. Covered casserole, oval platter, 6 dinner plates, 2 cups, 3 saucers, 3 desert plates, 3 fruit bowls and 3 ashtrays and the one with the mirrored sconce...well that's a salad plate, my first one ever.
