Found Friday: Dish Dreaming

dishes

I love collecting vintage dishes. The engaging colors and modern shapes make an eclectic setting for any table – formal, casual, traditional or modern. A few lovelies:

Russel Wright was an American designer who, along with his wife and business partner, Mary, revolutionized the way American families approached entertaining. They imagined a life that was simple and casual, and co-authored their “Guide to Easier Living” in 1950 . This book re-imagined a practical, while still beautiful approach to home decorating.

Eva Ziesel is a Hungarian designer, ceramist and teacher who has paved the way for many women in the design area – even today. She is known for her abstract pottery that has fluid lines, irregular and perfect all at the same time.

Fiestaware was originally designed by Frederick Hurten Rhead in 1936, and is still one of the most collected dish lines in the world. These iconic dishes are known for their symmetry and saturated colors. Simple and happy…

ebay and etsy are great places to start your own collection today!
