Shabby Chic vintage plates

I picked out these pretty vintage dishes from an estate sale to share on the "Show and Tell Friday" at MY ROMANTIC HOME blog. They are Homer Laughlin Georgian Eggshell; and they are the prettiest soft, Shabby Chic blue with a center floral bouquet, pink roses and gold trim. These were the only three pieces at the sale, and they were the perfect pieces to add to our Shabby Chic guest room. I love the blue and pink together with white. The large oval platter hangs over a redone shabbby dresser in the center with two other oval white plates hanging with ribbons on nails (and do you remember the button covers from the 80's? ~ well, I had some pearl ones that were so pretty and I used them to cover up the nails, and I love the look). The small dessert plate hangs over a desk and the beautiful little creamer sits on a shelf to hold paperclips or pushpins (button covered thumb tacks). These are just so beautiful. I hope you enjoy them too. I will post this complete room makeover in an upcoming blog.
Thanks for looking!

    Stop in when you have a minute!

  4. I so love your home. All those beautiful Homeer Laughlin dishes are to die for!

  5. I am a big collector of Homer Laughlin Eggshell Georgian. Your pattern's name is Chateau (although I can't guarantee that) and it came with a blue border or pink or green. I collect the same mold but the decals on mine are slightly different and my pattern is called Marilyn. I had no idea when I spotted my first few pieces that this collection was going to be so complicated. These were originally sold at Montgomery Wards or Sears.

    These all look fabulous. What a wonderful, charming, and welcoming guest room. The bed is just gorgeous.

  6. Thank you for checking out my blog and for the kind comments.

  7. That soft blue is so romantic! I have a complete set for 12, with all serving pieces, but mine are pink.

    The style is called "Marilyn" and you can go to to get more info for just about any dishes/china. (Just enter Homer Laughlin and then search "Marilyn" in blue or pink.) You might be surprised at how much your platter is worth!

    Talk to you soon ;)
