Vintage Fascination No. 122

Welcome back to another edition of Vintage Fascination.  This find is from a couple of months ago but I am just now getting it unpacked and ready for use.

As my daughter and I walked into our local Goodwill I spotted a huge lot of milk glass in the display case.  I hustled over to check it out.  It is a luncheon service for eight with lots of extras to go with it in Imperial Glass’s  Vintage Grape pattern. The price was good and it was senior day with 25% off so how could I not take all this milk glass goodness home with me.

 Imperial Glass Corporation founded in 1901 was located in Bellaire, Ohio.  It became a subsidiary of Lenox, Inc., in 1973 and sold to Arthur R. Lorch in 1981 eventually going bankrupt in 1984.  Imperial Glass produced this pattern from 1950 until 1980.

First up are the luncheon plates with an all over grape pattern.  The plates are 8 inches wide.  The bread and butter plates are identical to the luncheon plates but only 6 3/4 inches wide.  With an all over pattern, they are simply stunning.

The saucers have an embossed grape leaf in the center

and the footed cups are so sweet.

The set includes eight Champagne/Tall Sherbet glasses.  Won’t they be perfect to serve something pretty and pink?

The set also includes eight 5 3/8 inch water goblets.

The extras include:

 Quarter Pound Covered Butter Dish

16-ounce Pitcher

Footed Creamer and  Open Sugar

 Salt and Pepper Shakers

Pickle Dish

Fruit Bowl

I wonder if originally the set included dinner plates or maybe it was always just a luncheon set.  I can’t wait to do a tablescape with these dishes so be looking for it soon.

By purchasing the set, each piece cost me less than fifty cents.   Of course, my daughters just roll their eyes at me and remind me that I already have too many dishes and it’s true.

Thank you for visiting today and come back soon!

  2. What fabulous finds, Sharon! I’m envious. 🙂 I’ll look forward to seeing your tablescape with these lovely milk glass pieces.

  3. Oh, now that;s a pretty set, Sharon! You scored big time finding all those accompanying pieces to the plates. It’s a little sad to think of the person whose home those probably came, isn’t it? I’m happy you rescued them and will be showcasing them soon!

  4. What a find Sharon! I’m proud for you. You know, you could probably sell that in your new Etsy shop!! (big grin) And I’m kidding…

    Oh, my gosh, those are beautiful! I’ve never been much of a milk glass lover but that set is really lovely.

    I know what you mean about your daughters. My youngest says the same thing: “Mom, you already have more dishes than you can store or use.” The older daughter is afflicted with my love of dishes and other vintage items, so she can’t really say much!

    I’ll be looking forward to seeing the table you set with these beauties!

    P.S . Maybe you could find some dinner plates on Ebay or at Replacemnets, Ltd.

  6. WOW! Now that’s a real score! For the price you’re right, you had to take it home! I love it all, but especially that pickle dish:) xo Kathleen

  7. Wow! I absolutely love it! I’m looking for some milk glass pieces for my kitchen china cabinet. You found a fabulous set.!

  8. A very sweet find, Sharon! Now you have me thinking about strawberry ice cream!!!! LOL
    Thank you for linking up with Let’s Talk Vintage this week!

    What a great find! I have quite a few pieces in a similar pattern that I bought from my sis years ago. I wish our thrift had a Senior day! 🙂 Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  13. Oh my heavens Sharon, I know am not supposed to envy but can’t help myself when I see such an incredible find. If you hadn’t gotten these dishes would think you were crazy .I must be pea green from envy but am so happy for you who will truly appreciate your find and enjoy them. Look forward to seeing your tablescape featuring all these lovely milk glass treasures. You hit gold girl.
    Have wonderful weekend
