Ironstone platters of various shapes and sizes, coloration and crazing, with or without patterns are just the building blocks to so many vignettes. They can be used for simple bedroom vanity trays holding lotions, jewelry, and various trinkets. They can be the background filler showcasing their shape and coloration with the more detailed items displayed in front. Or they can take center stage when dressed up as with Mary’s Gold. Frog Hollow vintage decor takes the stately T&R Boote classically shaped white platter and gives it bold color with the frayed edge bronzed velvet ribbon and lovely French marigold botanical print clipped in place. Simple yet elegant for summer through autumn styling. Details are-
- ironstone platter- 12" x 9", T&R Boote, England; great condition w/small chip on backside
- velvet ribbon
- botanical card w/mini clothespin
- plate stand
The majority of the items used for the vignettes are antiques or thrift store finds and not reproductions. Ironstone dishes and other antiques have the built in character of crazing, minor chips, browning and other signs of use through the years. This authentic look of age and wear all lends itself to the romance of french country or the comfort of farmhouse bringing character and charm to your home.
