AhaHa! I Finally Dragged Out The Box Of Blue Heaven Dishes! Wasn't Really Sure What I Had. Status: Not Too Shaby!
Plakow! That's some nice collection of Blue Heaven (by Royal China) is it not? This pattern is not the easiest to put together here in the midwest. Dunno why. Seems like I can't walk out the front door without tripping over some more Salem Biscayne, but the Blue Heaven is about as hard to find as the Salem Northstar!
This has been slowly building for about two years. I found the first couple pieces at the St.
Charles Salvation Army thrift store. The check out lady says to me, "You like this? We get this
stuff in all the time...you should check back here once in a while." Done. Never found another
piece there! That's SO OK though, found plenty of other great things there. The very first item
I blogged about was found there!
Except for the Three medium sized mixing bowls (which Mother Modtomic bought for me at the
St. Clair Antique Mall) the vast majority of this was found at the various Flea Markets around
the St. Louis area. Anybody know for sure what company made the milk glass baking dishes in
this pattern? None are marked except for their volume, i.e. 1.5 qt. I'm seeing Fireking around
the web. Anybody got some mugs to look at? Those would be marked "Fireking" on the bottom
wouldn't they? Also...what do the Tea Cups look like? I've got plenty of saucers but no tea
cups. Need to know what to look for.
