Monarch China Plates "York"

Click on picture to enlarge...I found these plates at a resale store this week. I remember when I started as a dealer/seller in 1990, I had some of these but like so many things they get bought up & kept and we don't see them on the open market much anymore. This spring my friend took me to the Santa Ana Home & Garden Tour. My favorite house (shabby chic decor) had a long white washed table set in these dishes. The home owner had a full set & had inherited them from her grandmother or aunt. The colors are so rich and they look so pretty. (made in Japan).

Ohh, these dishes are a wonderful find...the pattern is very pleasing and the colors allow you to use various placemats or tablecloths and napkins!

Hello Monah,
thank you so much for visiting my blog and becoming a follower.It's lovely to find your shop and great website. I love reading about vintage finds from other parts of the world. I love some of the things that can only be found in the USA especially kitchenalia, tins and decals.Your pink cottage looks beautiful, what an amazing place to live.
