I am a total "dishes" addict. To me, a set of dishes for sale at a good price is like a puppy needing a good home! We were at a sale a few weeks ago and I spotted a box of dishes and thought it was a Johnson Brother's pattern. Yes indeed! I can spot Johnson Brothers a mile away.
It's called Fruit Sampler and is a part of the Old Granite line. I have another pattern marked Old Granite called Lancaster. I know Lancaster was made in the 1950's so I'm thinking this one probably was too. I got the whole box for $20 and have been able to find some more pieces on Ebay. I think I'm going to order the salad plates next. I just love all the colors and everyone knows that I love brown!
The cup and saucer have an apple in the center. The dinner plate has a pear which makes it fun. Don't you love the trim?
I do have some old tins in my kitchen that are perfect for fall too. Great colors and fun tins to own.
