Waterford mark and Bishop and Stonier of England

Would you have noticed the Waterford mark on the bottom of this frame.  It was sitting on a shelf at Goodwill and I noticed. I also noticed the $1.00 price tag. 

She was dirty, I bet that is a silver rimmed frame. Small chip at the very top in the back.

Yep, silver rimmed Waterford frame!  She cleaned up nicely.

Another day, another GW.   There were two plates and a large sugar creamer minus the lid in this lovely pattern.  I passed on the bowl that was small and chipped. Creamer $1.99, plates .99 cents each.

I kept the creamer on my desk at work.  Florescent lights help to take great pictures.

I have red transferware and want to mix in green for Christmas time.
The pattern mark says, Dalyrmple - Bisto England with an angel mark printed and also pressed into the plate.  Love the edging and pattern.

History lesson starts here....
I binged/googled Bisto England and found out that Bisto stands for Bishop and Stonier and their pottery was under this name from 1899 - 1939.  So I may go back for the chipped bowl and I know why the top of the sugar bowl is missing.  These are at least 70 years young or older.  It is not an angel but a wand of Caduceus.

Onto our Dillard's clearance store.  A whole store where all the clearance items end up.
Half price off the lowest price in the linen and china department was the best special I could find.  I was going to hand sew some Easter napkins, but why when these pastel beauties were marked down from $8.00 each to $2.40 and then half off to $1.20.

And these silver napkin rings for my collection, $4.00 to 1.20 to .60 cents!  They only had two, drat.

Love the embroidery look of the design.  Super soft and thick cotton.

These will work with my new white plates.  I bought 8 napkins, but I plan to mix my white linen napkins in with them.  Our guest count for Easter lunch is already over 8!
