A new collection has begun. I found a vintage lettuce & tomato plate by Carlton Ware about 6 months ago that quite caught my eye. Now I am seeing more and more of it. That is how a collection begins. I don’t even recall really ever seeing this style and now my eye goes right to it when I am on vintage buying excursions.
I just love the varying shades of green and the varying sizes of the plates. For me, a collection is best when it can be enjoyed visually, but equally important is that it can be used. These work so nicely holding a variety of things–with tomatoes, not surprising, being my favorite.
