Life is Like a Bowl of Peaches


We got four of these bowls at an antique store recently. Thirty minutes prior we found 3 matching saucers at a thrift store on the same street. In May we found a matching pitcher at a yard sale. Last fall we found 2 pitchers, a dinner plate, a saucer and 5 tea cups in green in the same pattern at an estate sale. So it seems we have a bit of an unusual collection developing here.


The pitcher on the right now belongs to my good friend and fellow MCM home owner. (Rê, I forgot to give you the lid!)


(Sorry, the above pic is really flashed out.) What drives me crazy is that I can’t figure out who makes these! There is no maker’s mark on the bottom and I’ve tried searching for mid-century dinnerware dishes scalloped half-circle pattern glazed gold green ceramic … and every combination of those words with no avail. Has anyone ever seen these?? Please help!

    Hi! I love searching for unique stuff online, so I couldn’t help myself. I did a google image search for vintage ceramic scalloped dishes and found about five images online from websites selling different pieces. I’ll email them to you if you are interested in buying more. Each site said the pieces were unmarked, but one said they estimated them at 1960’s and made in the US…most likely California.
