Hazel Atlas "Ovide" table!

Today I want to show not only this beautiful
fruit tablecloth, but my Hazel Atlas glass tableware.

The style of the glass is "Ovide", and called Platonite.
Platonite uses a milk glass base glass to start,
the color is added, and it is then fired on.

The first sets of Hazel Atlas glass tableware 
were made in the 1930's in green only. 
It is my understanding that Hazel Atlas
introduced  other colors starting in the 1940's.

It's been said that these dishes were Hazel Atlas'
answer to Homer Laughlin's Fiesta Ware.

I probably wouldn't have mixed this gorgeous
blue and rust, but when I saw the colors
in this over-dyed process tablecloth,
I knew they would be perfect together!

Nice close up of the dishes and the tablecloth.

I believe the maker of the candlestick holders
is Northwood, yet they are a perfect compliment
to the Hazel Atlas.

I mixed in the 70's era by using some Vera napkins.

Thanks for visiting my new tablescape!
I'm a thrifty shopper who always uses
her finds...and loves to show them off!

Joining some parties this week!

Angie's Vintage Style Party

I plan on doing a vintage linen giveaway when I reach 100 followers. That number is chicken-feed to some of you, but
totally amazing to me!

If you enjoy my blog, please become a follower so I can reach my goal more quickly, and also you can see when I announce it!

Thanks, Pam

    1. Thanks Carlene, they're not red, but a color they call rust, which is a darkish orange really. That's why I wasn't sure, but they look great together.

  4. Gorgeous table! I think my grandmother had that same tablecloth and the rust Hazel Atlas. The handles on that sugar bowl and creamer look very familiar.

  5. It looks lovely and I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful vintage table cloths:)

  6. Oh such a lovely cheery setting. I have never heard of Hazel china before. xx

  7. I've never seen dishes like that, but I like the rust color with the blue. They are the perfect match for your tablecloth. I always love vintage ones like this! Your vintage things are always such a delight to see because you have a good eye for finding pretty things. Thanks for sharing on my party this week!

  8. I love these old pieces. They have so much more character than new tableware does. Also, it is so interesting to read about the history of all of them. Thank you for sharing - the tablecloth has so many interesting colors.

    1. Obviously I love the old pieces too, and I like to say that I'm recycling, LOL!

  9. Love the table -- what's for dinner? (And thanks for stopping by.)

  19. I am learning so much about tableware from you girl. I did not know the name of your dish collection. I love the rust and blue together. I have a few vintage dish towels that remind me of your tablecloth. It's so darn sweet! I spied with my little eyes, hee-hee; your cute S & P shakers, loved them! Thanks so much for linking up! Hey, I totally remember when I reached 100 followers and was so amazed. Never thought I would even have 50. Congrats to you. The number will just keep growing with your wonderful blog.

  20. Hi there, love the colorful vintage tablecloth and your Hazel Atlas dishes. Such pretty colors! I'll be glad when you reach 100, I'd join twice if it would hurry it along!! I'll be watching for the give-away!
    Thanks, Dorothy
