Oh, how I adore my gray and pink ringed Shenango China. I have a huge collection of this pattern. It is my daily dinnerware. I have been collecting it, for right at 20 years. So yea... I have a few pieces of it in my kitchen cabinets.
What I had not manage to find... is soup bowls. I had the small pink cups. But no legit size cereal bowl, size ones.
As I am gleefully shopping at the Savers in Duluth... I saw of all things... some gray and white Shenango! Woo hoo!
Sitting all pretty on the shelf in the home wares, was this set of Shenango breakfast dishes. Two of each... breakfast plate, bowl and coffee cup. And nothing else. I love the design on the edges of this set of dishes. And in the shopping cart they went.
As if I needed to start in with a new design of restaurant china... I am hoping that I might have a easier time finding these bowls. They are such a pretty little gray trimmed bowl. And every time I come across the solid pink bowls I need (that are this shape/size) they are outrageously priced. So I figure after finding these cute gray trimmed ones... I will attempt to find me two more of them. I could be happy with four of them. Six would be better. But I could live with four. :)
Added plus... is the new gray trimmed coffee cups... are the same size as my pinks ones! So they stack inside and did not require me finding space for them. They just sit on top of the pink cups in the cabinet.
Even the gray trimmed plates, fit smoothly on top of my gray and pink plates.
I do have cereal bowls trimmed out in the gray and pink rings. (top of picture by the Kromex canister) But I really did want the solid pink ones.... however I do love these gray trimmed bowls. Plus I got this set of Shenango breakfast dishes... for 6.00 at Savers!
