Welcome to the 53rd History & Home Link Party! Today I’m sharing something new I’ve added to my home…well, new to me, but actually something with a few years on it. I’ve been collecting another pattern in vintage Franciscan dinnerware called Strawberry Fair. These dishes were made in the 1980s, so I suppose some would call that vintage and some would say they’re too new to be considered vintage. Either way, they sure are pretty!
The dinner plates came from an antique mall, and the rest from Etsy and eBay sellers. I still have a few pieces to find to complete service for 6.
I’m always looking for a good deal, though, so it may take time.
Here’s the backstamp Franciscan was using at the time:
There is probably a Strawberry Fair tablescape somewhere in my future, no?
