Beautiful Portuguese Pottery by Bordallo Pinheiro

With all the green of St. Patrick's Day, I thought I'd pull out my Bordallo Pinheiro plates for a tablescape.  I've been collecting these for quite a while.  Most of them are from thrift stores and yard sales but you can find them at TJ Maxx as well as eBay for vintage pieces.  My collection is made up of various patterns and hues of green.  Love mixing them together.

This is not a Pinheiro piece, that I know of.  It's unmarked but when I found four of them at the thrift store for less than $1 each, I had to have them.  

Here's the tablescape using the dishes and some fresh (and faux) herbs.  Perfect for spring and, the Lord knows, after this winter, we're all ready for spring :)

I just included this last one because I think fresh lavender blooms are beautiful!

Do you collect a certain pattern of dishes?  As a fellow dish hoarder collector, I'd like to know!

Thanks for stopping by and God bless!

  3. Love your green collection! Just looks like spring and I bet the herbs smell wonderful too. Count me as a charter member in the dish collector club. Dibs on the chrysanthemum plates if ever decide to part with them :-) Bwg ~~~
