This week, I am featuring vintage china that by chance coordinates with my happy daisies which have bloomed right on cue the first week of summer.
The set of china was an antique store purchase. I needed it like I needed a hole in my head, but I could not resist. There has been no remorse on bringing it home. The backstamp reads “N.S.P. China, made in Japan, Hand Painted.”
It reminds me of vintage Noritake. Most likely from the 1930s. Pattern name unknown. The porcelain is thin and dainty and appears to have never been used. I was drawn to the apple green color and the vintage style floral design. Love the scroll work connecting the flowers. The rims are delicately trimmed in gold.
The placemat is Madeira on white organza. Coincidentally, there are a few daisies in the pattern. 🙂
The green Fenton hobnail petite vase goes well with this china. Perfect for the few flowers that I dared to cut from my perennial.
The variety of this daisy plant is called ‘Banana Cream.” A clever and appropriate name as the petals a soft yellow. I was fortunate to come across this variety by chance at a big box store two years ago. It does well in my flower bed that receives the hot afternoon sun.
