Triangle Tidbit Plates X 5. White and Chrome Crackley Coolness. Status: Available...Times Five.
Dag, that's a pretty cool picture...if I do say so myself!
Doesn't every Mid Century pad need a place to drop the keys, another to put your
earrings in, another to uh, keep your change in, yet another to...mmmmm....let's
see...put the cat food in?, and what? ANOTHER? ::sigh:: Another to...well to....
uhm....put...your...I Don't Know, You'll Think Of Something!
I picked these up at the Salvation Army the same day I spotted the China Cabinet
that I featured a few days ago. It's a great shop to find smalls like these. I'm not
entirely sure how these plates were intended to be used originally. Probably
exactly as stated above. Keys, candy, whatnot. They definitely aren't ashtrays.
Too bad, they make great ashtrays if they had the cig. holder. Maybe you could
serve Sushi on them!
I wonder if there were originally six total. Maybe as part of a Lazy Susan. Sporting
the classic white and "chrome" web accent, they are super classy. Anybody know
what this kind of finish is actually called? Anybody take a ceramics class?
