Do you believe in love at first sight? I do...especially when it comes to vintage kitchenware. I know I may seem fickle, as the lightening bolt has struck me multiple times, from colorful Fiestaware to whimsical snack plates, sturdy Fire King bowls and gorgeous Catherineholm (still looking for these by the way) and then there was the quirky Canoe Muffin obsession. But this time...there is just something special about this collection of china.
The Petalware line, also known as Georgette, was produced in the 1940s by the W.S. George Pottery Company in Ohio. The petals form a delicate scalloped edge to the bowls, cups and plates and its beauty is enhanced by the soft green, blue, rose, grey and yellow colors.
Petalware by W.S. George has officially gone to the top of my wishlist (and oh what a long wishlist it is!) Until then, these pictures gathered from designsponge, flickr and google images will have to tide me over.
