In an earlier post, I wrote about finding a very cool platter that was made by Hall China as Hallcraft, Shape By Eva Zeisel. If you Google Eva Zeisel, you'll learn a great deal about a very interesting lady. Would you believe that I was at the same charity thrift store where I found the first platter, and lo and behold! another instantly recognizable shape, albeit a different pattern. This one is "Bouquet" and was also created in the 50's-60's. It's more something that my mother would have had in her home rather than the now more popular "atomic" styling like my "Fantasy" platter, but it's very pretty. Three bucks.
If you're into Pyrex, see how many patterns you can recognize on another shelf in the shed. Just to make things interesting, there's also some Fire-King in the mix.
