White Dinnerware

I’m not going to kid you, when it comes to white dinnerware, I tend to get a bit obsessive. It’s just about one of my very favorite things ever, so it only makes sense for me to collect pieces to sell at our upcoming Vintage Whites Market in Utah.

And I must say, if I didn’t have a market coming up, I would totally keep all of this for myself. It must be love! 😀

I mentioned last week that I had been hitting up estate sales in our area for items to take with us to the market, and today it’s all about the white dinnerware, and a few other finds, I’ve been luck enough to stumble upon. They make my heart warm and happy, so I know I’m on the right track to giving a true representation of my style in our booth. When it pains me to sell something, I know it’s right. 😀

And this, it pulls my heart strings…

I’ve seen this pattern floating around from time to time, but this was definitely the largest collection I’ve found together, so it was an easy decision to purchase it. Anyone out there know the specific pattern/ maker? This is what’s on the bottom:

Anyways, it’s such a simple and dainty pattern. It feels delicate, and proper. And I like that!

I also scored a few pieces of this lovely blue floral pattern set. I must admit, I am majorly smitten, and I think it would be the perfect accessory dish to my white set, so I’m planning on looking around to find a bit more of it. It’s just lovely…

And it happens to be magical when it’s paired with crisp white dishes…

I also found these bowls. They’re not nearly as old, but I loved their simple pattern too…

Plus, they’re perfect for mixing and matching, which I can’t get enough of these days. 😀

Besides the dishes though, I’ve had good luck finding some lovely baskets…

I absolutely love the size of it…

And I picked up this cute copper rooster plaque. I couldn’t pass him up, so perfectly farmhouse, and such pretty detail…

And because I am a bit obsessed with it, here’s one more picture for the road… 😀

I’ve had some very successful trips, and I can’t wait to share more of my finds, like the furniture! It’s pulling on the ole’ heart strings as well. 😀

Main Signature


  1. Oh my! I love it- it’s my everyday china ~ Wedgewood Candlelight White…
    goes great with everything, any color placemat, napkin, or charger – and other patterns like you show here!
    Where did you find it?
    I need more bowls 🙁

    1. Beth and Shayna, I have Snow White by Johnson Brothers and the swirls are on the inside of the bowls so the the top edge looks scalloped so I don’t think Shayna’s are Snow White. I do believe they are made by Johnson Brothers though so you can probably find them by going on a china replacements website. Good luck.

  2. Hi Shayna ~
    I’m a blue & white girl myself and never saw this pattern.
    It’s so sweet and using it with the white dishes is perfect.
    They are in such great condition.

    Good luck with your Vintage White Market.
    Have a great day.

  3. I love white dishes too, and lots of them. Blue and white is a close second. Your photos show them off so nicely. I have a few plates in that pattern and I think they might be Johnson Bros. Swirl in Snow White. Not positive though. At any rate they are lovely and look pretty.

  4. The white dishes are beautiful! Well, so are the blue/white ones, too! Please let us know the pattern name of the white dishes if you find out. Made in England — so nice!

  5. The white dinnerware is so reminiscent of the Myott Meakin vintage white set my stepmother owned. The handles of the cups aren’t the same, but the pattern is. It is simply elegant.

  6. I’ve always heard that food looks best on a beautiful white dish! Yours are just that!!

  7. I have those same dishes. I am not sure of the name of the white ones “made in England” but I also have some that look exactly like those and they are Johnson Bros. “Regency” and they also are made in England. You can find these dishes on Replacements.com

    1. Miss. Sharon: I went to the replacement site but I still could not find the blue and white pattern there. Help! Please!

  8. Great finds!! Love the dishes for sure! I have a cupboard full of white dishes, platters and pitchers as well and never grow tired of them. Have a wonderful day!

  9. I believe both of those patterns are Johnson Bros. You can never go wrong with their patterns – always classic! Will we see you and your goodies anytime in the Denver area? Saw you up in Longmont and loved your booth!

  10. What great finds. I lucked out last fall and found a set of six salad and dinner plates that look almost identical to the white swirl you found. Mine was a score from our local Goodwill. I am right with you on the collection of white dishes. Raised hand…guilty. 🙂 Those blue floral ones are so pretty. I would have such hard time parting with them. Have fun at your next sale and please make sure to take pictures of your booth again, before the sale. Can’t wait to see what you set up for your on line sales, as I don’t reside in your area. (sad face).

  11. Vintage Whites???? whaaaaat! I am planning on going! I have been to the last two! I made up my mind I may not go this year because it is CRAZy busy but after reading your darling Blog maybe I will go afterall! Just to see your booth!
