A Little Soup Tureen

I love finding white dishes to add to my collection.



This little piece was only $3 at a garage sale this weekend so it came home with me. I didn't bother offering less because I was excited to find it.



I added it to the china cabinet in our dining room. This cabinet is full of the white caterer's plates we use for parties (instead of paper), my Mikasa French Countryside coffee set, a simple white dinnerware set for 16 and other collected pieces.


Don't you just love spotting that one special piece on a table and hoping you get to it before someone else spots it?

  3. Wow Elizabeth, you really find great deals. These dishes are beautiful. I really want to change to all white dishes, but I have the hugest collection of yellow ones. I'm really torn, but yours make me want to go white.

  9. The hunting and the finding is so much fun! That's a gorgeous little tureen, if I had been there we would have been reaching for it at the same time.

  10. Your white tureen is actually a 1-quart sauce tureen by Himark out of Japan. It was made in 1985. I have one here, in the original box and with an original price of $6.50 (in Ronald Reagan dollars). Hope that clears up the mystery of your beautiful little treasure. :)

    I also have the matching 2-quart soup tureen. It's a lovely set!

  13. So cool to see somebody else fell in love with the exact same tureen I did! I found mine at a Goodwill a few months back... it was labeled $5.99, but I waited (semi-patiently) until it went down to 99 cents :) Now it graces my sideboard here: http://www.aheartfulhome.blogspot.com/2012/07/thrifty-treasures-72-ironstone-and-old.html
