Hello everyone ~ hope you are all trying to stay cool in the excessively hot weather that most of the country is in ~ I've been spending most of my days staying inside our home with the central air! It's suppose to be a bit less warmer tomorrow, in the mid 80's (as if that is any cooler), but we'll take it.
Today I had to run to the store to pick up a couple of things, and decided to stop at that town's Goodwill store, though at first I was tempted not to, but then decided, "why not", and I am so glad that I did, as I brought home the 3 white treasures that you see in the photo below.
First up is this sweet little gravy boat and plate ~ I have a couple of other pieces in this same pattern; a mug, covered sugar, and a medium and small pitcher.
Next is this cute 7 1/4" plate ~ sweet details around the rim. There's no makers mark on the back.
Now this is the BEST find of the day! This is a platter, marked on the back: England, W. H. GRINDLEY & CO. I don't know a lot about this company other than a quick google search to find that it was founded in 1880. And the price I paid for this platter? A mere one dollar !!
love these swirls on the sides....
and these cute little "dots" around the edge...
Below is a close-up photo of the makers mark...
