Stopped By A Salvation Army Thrift Store Out In New York. Picked Up A Pair Of McCobb / Jackson China Bowls - Got A Whole Bunch Of Mystery Jackson China For Free! Status: Related?
I grabbed up this pair of Jackson China bowls designed by Paul McCobb at one of the few thrift stores we could find in Glen Falls NY (near where we vacationed in Lake George NY). I initially just grabbed the pair of bowls and was going to GLADLY pay the marked price for them alone. The nice lady at the check out MADE me go back to the dishes with her and suss out the rest of the lot. Thanks Nice Lady!
The plates and saucers were sitting right there. Right there next to the bowls! I didn't even notice
them! I was so ga ga over finding a pair of McCobb / Jackson bowls! At A Thrift Store! But
really, the only things tying the bowls to the plates is proximity and manufacturer. What gives?
It's a nice pattern. Kinda frilly for my taste. Guess that's why I didn't notice them at the thrift
store. They have the same "Jackson China" on the back as the Paul McCobb bowls but lack the
signature. I looked on both Modish.net and Replacements Ltd. but found nothing. Anybody got
a name for this pattern? It's probably headed for the Green Shag Market booth.
These are the keepers. I recognized these right away. Score. The check out lady must have
thought I was a little nuts, bringing up just this pair of bowls...instead of the whole set. She set
me straight though. I tried to explain about Paul McCobb and that these were well worth the
couple of bucks I was ready to pay, but she was having none of it! In the end, I conceded to
packing up the whole set and stuffing it into the back of Frank. So, anybody looking for some
pretty vintage restaurant quality dinnerware?
