Not So Much A Mystery As Much As A Conundrum. I Kinda Know What They Are...But Are They Worth Picking Up? Status: Left Behind...But Not Forgotten.
While I was out running around yesterday I fell upon these fine china sandwich size plates. At first I found just four and began furiously looking for any other pieces to the set. Unfortunately I didn't find any dining plates or serving pieces...but I did find 20 more of the sandwich plates. Are you wondering why I'm even bothering with these plates yet? Look inside.
I was drawn to the plates because of the monogramming which I think has a vintage modern look
to it. When I turned one of them over to see who made them I was pleasantly surprised to find the
Dorothy Thorpe label!
But for real, with these being monogrammed, are these worth anything more than as just random
plates. What are the chances of somebody with those exact initials finding these plates...and
knowing who Dorothy Thorpe even is?! At a buck each they are still a bargain just as nice plates
but I couldn't pull the trigger. I don't have any need of more random dining pieces 'round here,
that's for sure. But it was soooo hard leaving them behind having never even seen Dorothy Thorpe
dining pieces before. And what gives? 24 monogrammed sandwich plates? Weird.
