Green Stripes and A Touch of Fall In The Air

Weird weather in Northern California the last couple of days ...... from 100F to 68F and rolling black clouds with a few spits of rain and lightning/thunder.  So humid, reminds me of the midwest prior to a tornado.  So with a touch of Fall in the air here is a vintage cloth with lovely green stripes and stylized flowers , it is by Garden State Table Toppers and is called "Clematis".

Shown with Post 86 Fiesta in Ivory and Shamrock, Deauville flatware, vintage glassware, small Ivory Apple Tree bowl by HLC.  The salads are Rosenthal "Helena" handpainted in the US Zone Selb Germany and have been in my family for about 60 years. The US Zone mark clearly identifies the date of manufacture 1947 to 1953.  Helena is the shape and it was decorated in hundreds of patterns and designs.

The little green and yellow butter dish has a cork at one end, which is removed so the base can be filled with ice water to keep the butter chilled. 

The little maroon wooden pitcher is a favorite that I purchased 20 years ago from  Shaker Shops West  located in the Point Reyes National Seashore area of Marin county.
