Vintage Franciscan Ware and Other Goodies!

I love my hutch filled with my vintage Franciscan Ware and other vintage items.
It has taken me awhile to collect 12-5 piece place settings, tea pot, platters, gravy boat, cream and sugar,
salt and pepper shakers, 2 qt pitcher and serving bowl. 
All the pieces are
California made back stamped/made in 1940. 
I love the vibrancy of the colors they are all hand painted. Franciscan Ware was
made in Los Angeles area and true to California (my home).

Hutch was my mother's. It's a little on the small side, but
it works and has sentimental value to me.

This is a good picture to show you how vibrant the colors are. It also shows off my vintage Lefton kitties and Norcrest blue birds.

Who doesn't love Disney, I grew up with all these characters and remember seeing Lady and the Tramp and 101 Dalmatians when first released with my parents.
My Lady and the Tramp and Dalmatian collections are both retired.

This is my latest vintage acquisition my Johnson Brothers Friendly Village Teapot.
I now have two cups and saucers to match. 

Cute little Franciscan Ware Apple salt and pepper.

  1. I love Franciscan ware, and I love how you have it all displayed so you can enjoy it everyday! Your vintage teapot is stunning. I really want to start collecting teapots because it is a collection that would actually get used around our house!

    Enjoy your weekend!


  2. That certainly is one eye catching dinner service. I've never seen it before. Thanks for sharing.

  3. You have some fun collections! That Franciscan china was so popular! What would we do without our china cabinets? Have a great weekend! So nice you stopped by!

  4. I remember the 40's when Franciscan ware was the thing to buy.I was a young housewife on a tight budget. I love all cute stuff. It makes me happy to be inspired by some cute plates etc. Hope you have a great move. Love the kitties and blue birds. Love your pooches.

  5. Oh I think my Lee is going to enjoy your blog. She sees that Johnson brothers tea pot and Lefton. Our small home is full of antiques. And it was nice seeing a picture of you in a prior post.
