Hand Painted Vintage California Santa Anita “Provincial Apple” dishes found @ Houston Goodwill

Hand Painted Vintage California Santa Anita “Provincial Apple” dishes found @ Houston Goodwill Store

 

Vintage Dishes found at Houston Goodwill store, 12 for $13.99!!!!!!!

These plates caught my eye for one reason ….. I LOVE YELLOW!    What a sunny, happy and fun color!!!

I loved the contrast of the yellow apple in the center and the trim against the brown hand painted background.    To quote my mother-in-law “I need another set of dishes like I need a hole in the head” but I could not resist these, especially with the price tag of 12 plates for $13.99.   Each dish has been hand painted with visible brushstrokes, so there is a great depth of color on each unique plate.     Goodwill Thrifting is awesome!

The perfect complement for these plates are these nubby textured yellow  place mats I had recently bought at Conroe Assistance League … 8 for $9.00.    I can’t wait to use these!

RESEARCH:

Beautiful Vintage California Dishes “Provincial Apple” Yellow, Signed “Vreni” .  The unique pattern, Provincial Apple, made in the 1950s by Santa Anita Pottery, a division of National Silver Co. of Los Angeles, California.  They were in business from 1939 though the early 1960’s.  The pattern was offered in brown and white with yellow and also with pink, and was created by Swiss designer Vreni Wawra.

This outfit is quite cheerful with the pop of blue and accented with sequins!   The black and white toile skirt has a layer of tulle underneath and also built-in shorts!     She chose this outfit because her nails were already painted blue.
