Name That Plate





There is nothing that tickles me more than to watch one of my girls pick up a plate at a flea market or garage sale or antique store and immediately turn it over to check its hallmark.


This instinctive action is part of their collective DNA, bequeathed to them by my mother, their grandmother, their Nonnie.


Sometimes the insignia is a mystery- as in the china plate above. I found a stack of odd china pieces in this pattern in a large junk shop in Conroe.


I just liked them- I didn't care what it said on the back.

However, if you know anything about this pattern, please let me know.


Here is what it says:


Fondeville

Ambassador Ware

Laura,
We must have been separated at birth! Today I was scouting around thrift stores searching for plates. I read you recently retired from a career in education. I have been struggling with my comma usage in this public writing forum. I will be studying your writing technique as well as decorating when I visit!
Luckily my computer skills are more advanced then my punctuation. Starting Friday I will be running a giveaway contest. The winner will receive a customized Blogger Button which will coordinate with their site. If you are interested come by to enter.

P.S. I love New Orleans, live near Motown, have a passion for toile, coached girl's basketball, drink breakfast blend, adore flea markets, and I am sitting in a room full of blue and white!
