Nasturtiums - Something Old and Something New



Vintage tablecloth from my collection.  More information on the

Both vintage and Post 86 Fiesta are represented here.  Turf green bowls and Yellow luncheon plates are vintage, while the Sunflower salad plate and Seamist dinner plate are contemporary Fiesta.  The glass chargers are Italian, the flatware is Gibson "Royal Rope."  Glassware in vintage depression glass. Napkins from battenburglace.com


Stratoware, designed by Eva Zeisel, is also represented here.  Eva Zeisel passed away recently,
for more information click HERE

Stratoware was a line of dinnerware created by Eva Zeisel 
for Sears during 1941-1942. It is a limited line and very
difficult to find, although a lot of the covered casseroles 
seem to show up.

Here are a couple of ads from vintage Sears catalogs
showing some of the pieces in the line.


Seamist prototype charger from the Fiestaware2000 line. This test piece where the verge is more pronounced than on the final design for this piece. Fiestware2000 was never glazed in Seamist, so it's a one of a kind item.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed your visit.

  10. Fun fun. We had nasturtiums growing wild where I grew up and my friends always thought it was very odd that my mom put them in the salads...to eat!

  16. The tablecloth colors are so lovely and your Fiesta china coordinates perfectly! The tag is such a find and probably the tablecloth was never used. I like your center divided dish so useful. Happy Tea Party! Pam

  17. Oh I truly enjoyed this...and especially the sound of the birds coming in...not immediately but a bit after I was reading and viewing and for just a moment it sounded like it was spring my window open just enough to hear the gentle song of birds outside...enjoying their day...and making mine even better! Thanks for such a relaxing and invigorating song!

  25. Thank you all for your sweet comments. Hoping for an early Spring with more warm weather tables to come. Pinky I bought the flatware on line, so try typing Royal Rope flatware into Google. You might also try "twisted rope" flatware. Good luck!
