With Christmas, and no computer I had not been able to show a new treasure!
The American Fostoria square cake plate.
Most hunted by my Girlfriends and I.
I took this at the auction house I was so excited!
I bid on it absentee and got it for $55.
Did you Grandmother have the pattern?
Both of my Grandmother's did.
A luxury of post WWII homes.
My maternal Grandmother used all her pieces for her Eastern Star and book lovers meetings.
Her friends gave her many pieces and I am blessed to have her collection, near 100 pieces.
But no cake plate.
the candlesticks showed up on my Grandmother's table for my parents wedding reception
One of my friends has the memory of her MIL always making a birthday cake for her 6 boys and placing it on fostoria square cake plate
on one of our antique trips she was thrilled to find the round but is still on the hunt for the square.
And oh yes, she tried to offer to buy the square one off of me...NO WAY!
For the 1515 Christmas party I always make a Peppermint Cake.
I could not wait this year.
it looked so pretty (sorry about the lighting, no computer and then I forgot my camera!)
I can never pass a piece of American Fostoria without think of my dear Grandmother.
It always reminds me of a melting ice cube.
It has been fun teaching my Girlfriends about its beauty, watching them buy their first pieces, and adds some fun to our Pyrex hunts.
I think my dear Grandmother would appreciate the fact that something she so adored
is treasured today.
Does the Fostoria pattern bring back any memories for you?
I love it when you share those memories........it is a Sentimental thing with me!
