Thanksgiving dinner dishes

Amazing pumpkin decorated dishes from the 60’s

Pyrex casseroles and assorted items from my stock were pulled together to serve Thanksgiving dinner. The lovely set of  decorated dishes are made by Island Worcester in Jamaica and all hand painted with what looks like apples. I thought they were pumpkins but they have a stem and leaf like an apple.  The pattern was designed by the famous Vera Neumann.   Orange pyrex oval casserole dishes are from the Friendship pattern series.  The dark brown and caramel coloured oval divided dish is the Old Orchard pattern.  Amber glass goblets are by Indiana Glass Co. in the Mount Vernon pattern from the 60’s.  Etched amber wine glasses are also from the 60’s.  Assorted bakelite handled utensils complement the dishes and all are layed out on a vintage 60’s rooster tablecloth.

    Hi Annette, this is even more beautiful than I imagined! Shawn and I had dinner on Forbidden Fruit tonight and I even poured cider from the little jug. It made me very happy. I also love the horsey Vera napkins so much, I’m wondering if I should hang them as art.

    It was great talking to and shopping from you this weekend. Looking forward to the spring show!

      So glad you are enjoying them. I love all things Vera. I think the napkins would look amazing framed on a wall. What a fab idea. See you in the spring if not before.
