Having a mother that catered many gourmet meals and fantastic wedding cakes during my childhood, it was inevitable that an affable bond with dish ware would grow in her only daughter. When my mom would do large parties she was always on the hunt for something that had the right amount of presentation but still left the food as the central focal point. We were always hunting antique stores for the next platter or tea cup or pitcher. She was a master at food art. Her table settings at home still are nothing short of amazing.
The irony of it all is that among her Spode, Lennox, Dansk, Fiestaware, and Waterford Crystal – a piece of pyrex did not exist. Even more ironic is that I’ve somehow fallen in love with the domestic staple of household casseroles – the Pyrex in all its mid-century modern glory. While browsing for vintage dishes yet again on flickr and Etsy I came across this lovely collection and just had to share, from one semi-domesticated woman to another.
