Rescued Treasure!

Look at my latest find!!  Aren’t they beautiful!?  This vintage china set is from Contour China of Japan.  The pattern name is Picardy.  I love these gorgeous pink roses.  I wish I could have found more pieces.  I wish I new when this pattern was produced.  By the shape and style I am assuming in the 1960’s.  Does anyone know?  Or could you direct me where I could find out more information?

Retro Stacking Coffee Mugs

One of my latest finds have been these vintage stacking coffee mugs.  These were in every kitchen when I was a kid.  They are ceramic.  Each set’s glazing is so unique.  In fact, no two are glazed exactly the same.  They are one of a kind art. 🙂  I don’t know which pattern is my favorite.  I’d appreciate it if someone could share the history of when and how these were made.  I’d love to know the process.  The bottoms are all marked “Japan”.  They are all listed in my Etsy store if you’d like them for your collection. 🙂
