This is my mother's Noritake Dinnerware,
pattern #5201 from Japan, Circa 1951 - 1961.
The dishes are white with a gray and tan border and rose swags.
This set of dinnerware was my mother's pride and joy.
She was raised on a small farm in Appalachia (southeastern Kentucky).
The youngest of six children, her father died when she was twelve years old.
I remember when she proudly collected these dishes
a few at a time from a local grocery store in the 1950s.
They are currently displayed in one of my cherry corner hutches in her memory.
A thank you to Bernideen at Bernideen's Tea Time Blog.
I love the way Bernideen displaysher glass cake stands with teapots,
so I took several of mine out of a storage closet and put them in the
corner hutch to better display my mother's dinnerware.
I enjoy learning from tea friends and bloggers!
