Vintage Luncheon Dishes

For many years, when I would go "hunting" with my hubby's Aunt, we would be on the look out for these vintage glass dishes.




I've collected several designs and have at least 8 to 10 servings for each design. Not as many of the cups though. And unfortunately when I was bringing these dishes down from the cabinet, one of the cups made a crash landing on my unforgiving tile floor :-(

But isn't it fun to use these pretty glass sandwich dishes for a special occasion or luncheon? We recently hosted a bridal shower and using these glass dishes added so much elegance to the occasion.

And they are also just as nice to serve a special lunch for special friends.

I also helped throw a bridal shower this past year where we used these vintage dishes. The lady who held the affair in her home had a collection, but not as large as yours! You are right that they make any occasion instantly elegant.

Happy Cottage Quilter,
Thank you for an enjoyable stroll down Memory Lane!
Years ago, in our country church, these same vintage dishes were used at my Bridal Shower!
Fondly,
