Something's Fishy (but it's a good thing)

Aren't these lovely.  The colors are really brighter than in the photos.  I usually take my photos outside but today the beautiful blue sky gave everything a blue tint.  When I tried to remove the blue, the colors became more muted.  Well at least they are no longer blue.  I stopped by my local Goodwill this morning after breakfast with a friend.  I found these treasures for less than 8 dollars.  The plates are in wonderful condition but there is a small chip on the gravy boat.   No problem because they are going to our vacation home in Ky and the gravy boat will become a centerpiece for the kitchen table .  The plates will be displayed on the kitchen wall above the table.  I purchased fly fishing fabric some time back to cover the chair seats.  They will all look great in the kitchen.

I tried to locate similar plates on the internet with no success.  The bottom marks indicates they were made in Western Germany by H & G Selb Bavaria Germany Heinrich.  Here is a copy of the mark and another of just the H& G mark from the internet.

If any of you have any info on their approximate date or other info, I'd love to get it.  For now they will be carefully packed in a box for our trip to Ky in the fall. 

I'm off the work on my coffee pillow.

What a great find those plates are. I am sure they will look lovely in your kitchen in KY. Take a photo when you put them up and cover the chairs when you go back in the fall. :)


I so love looking at old things. What a wonderful find.
