Our selection of American china painting (or porcelain painting) continues with this hand-painted 8 1/4" scalloped plate, which is signed - M. Morris but is undated. The picture is of a pair of dainty yellow roses on a delightful plate which has a very pale blue band around the border. This plate, too, is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or crazing.
Paul Revere bowl by Gorham, complete with clear plastic liner. This 8" hollowware silverplated serving bowl appears to hold about 1.5 qt. The bowl and liner are in excellent condition. The bowl has both the Gorham hallmark and the original label. The piece is marked "YC780" beneath the hallmark. Date unknown.
Franciscan "Ivy" 5.5" cereal bowl from the 1970s. No chips or crazing, but a few of the tiniest flea-bites show in the green around the rim. They do not extend down the side nor completely across the green. Nothing serious and they do not detract from the bowl.

Delightful biscuit (cookie) jar in clear glass with raised waffle design, a red-flashed rim and a clear lid. The jar stands about 6" tall (without the lid) and is approximately 5" in diameter. There are no chips or cracks, however, where the lid meets the rim, there are a few very minor wear marks in the flashing due to use, as expected. Still, this jar is shows well and will serve nicely.

Here is a HTF set. It is a silver encrusted cup and saucer in the Maria Theresia pattern by Edelstein. Made in Bavaria, the pattern was made from 1931-1974. The mark on these pieces would indicate a production date earlier rather than later. Each piece in the line was individually numbered and these are numbered 12 on the cup and 20 on the saucer. Both pieces are in marvelous shape with no chips, cracks or crazing.

10" American Whitehall 3-toed center console bowl by Indiana Glass. Made in the tradition of Fostoria's American pattern, this center bowl is 1/2" smaller than its true American cousin. This bowl was made to go with matching candle bowls, but will certainly serve well on its own. The Whitehall line was made to compliment the Fostoria line and some of the pieces shared the same mold...
This is a fantastic vintage set of boiled corn dishes. While unsure of the maker, we have reason to believe they date back to the 70s, if not earlier. Their shape is unique, and their coloring is wonderful. All are free of chips, cracks and crazing. They will make a great addition to any home.

Well known, but seldom correctly identified, this is a Daisy and Button fan tray by L.G. Wright. Sold in dime stores across the country, this was (and is) a popular item that has decorated many ladies' dressers over the years. Measuring 10.5" across by 7" top-to-bottom, this tray strongly resembles the snack plates produced by Anchor-Hocking. This tray is smaller and lacks the cup indention, but otherwise compliments the A-H sets nicely...
