Pink Roses and Depression Ware Table

Pat went International and mixed things up a bit this week by using Italian Capodimonte Roses, American Depression glass, and Japanese dinnerware.
Nothing too fancy - just sweet

Flatware is "20th Century Baroque" by Wallace Silversmiths (or as I refer to it: the Poor Man's "Grand Baroque")

Pat started the place setting with an "American Sweetheart" Depression glass sherbet and liner

Dinnerware is "La Rose" by Mikasa

The charger is "Rose" Color Spectrum by Mikasa - it's more like a dusty pink color but works well with the dinnerware

The Capodimonte roses were a gift from our Dad to our Mother (her name was "Rose".) Pat gave the arrangement more prominence by using a Depression glass pedestal bowl to raise it up a bit. 

Where it came from:
Lace Placemat - from Lentz Department Store in Ferndale (a really neat local store now out of business after the owners retired)
Charger - "Rose" Color Spectrum by Mikasa from eBay
Dinnerware - "La Rose" by Mikasa (1987-1998) from Pat's daughter (another set of dishes that I "borrowed" years ago and haven't returned yet.....)
Glassware - "Rosaline" by JG Durand from Replacements
Bowl and Liner - "American Sweetheart" by MacBeth-Evans from our collection
Flatware - "20th Century Baroque" by Wallace Silversmiths from Horchow's
Vintage Napkin - from our collection
Other Depression Ware - from our collection
Capodimonte Roses - from our Mother's curio years ago....
