Hazel Atlas

I love my Hazel Atlas colored glass dishes!

Here is my china cabinet just full
of Moderntone and Ovide style dinnerware.
 
 
 
 
The process in called Platonite glass, fired on colors.
This was some tough process!  These dishes are 60+ years old.
 
Today I'm sharing some tabletops from previous tablescapes
showing off a mix and match of colors.
 
 
 
 My favorite thing to do is put one of my vintage tablecloths
on the dining room table and randomly grab some of my HA
 (Hazel Atlas=HA)
in different colors to see which ones look great with it.
 
 
 
This chartreuse and dark green, definitely a favorite. 
 
 
Gray and rust.
 

 
Ah, cobalt blue and rust.
 
 

 
 Turquoise, gray, red, butterscotch.
 
 
 
You can never have too many colors together!
 
 
Hope you enjoyed seeing my Hazel Atlas. 
If you read my blog, you'll be seeing lots more of it,
trust me on that!
 
 
Aw....my fav Doyle photo from when he was just 4 weeks old,
a month before we took him home.  This was almost 3 years ago!
Hard to believe he was ever that little.

  4. Hi Pam, I have a Hazel Atlas Pink Crinoline luncheon set, boy, people ate very little back then, pieces are so tiny! I need to do a post on it. You have a lovely collection. The colors are so soothing to me. xo

    1. Love the crinoline! You're right, they are smaller, at least an inch smaller around than today's dinner plates. Would love to see a post on it!

  5. Okay, Pam, the title Hazel Atlas drew me in. I love 1940's, 50's and 50's glass. Beautiful colors.

  6. I agree with you, the chartreuse and dark green tablescape is a favorite of mine, too! The tablecloth under it all is just stunning. I love the color combo of the stack of bowls on the middle shelf of your cabinet. Thanks for sharing Doyle's "baby" picture--what a cutie! :) --Fran

  10. Hi Pam! That's the cutest baby picture of Doyle! Is the one on your sidebar of him on the tablecloth a new one? (I can't remember seeing it before but then I am losing my middle aged mind ahhahhaha)

    My gosh, what a collection of glassware you have, so much fun! And I love seeing it with your fabulous table cloths. Lucky you!

    Happy VTT and happy almost weekend!

  16. This is one of my all time favorite patterns. I only collected the Moderntone in pink. Which now I kick myself for.

    When I was buying it in the early 90's it was reasonably priced and easy to find. Not so much now. :) But I love that lighter green color. I like to have a little if it to mix up with my pink.

  17. Love all the colours, pink is favourite, although I like the two shades of green. We have an auction business and use to see it all the time, but not anymore. Going to check your old posts. Oh and I love the tablecloths too

  19. What beautiful dishes. I just realized that I am sure I have a creamer and sugar in rust. I didn't know what they were I just liked them. Your vintage tablecloths are darling. They are perfect for the colorful dishes.

    1. Jeanne, that is funny because that is what I started with, a rust creamer and sugar! I also had no idea what they were and searched online until I identified them. Yup, those printed tablecloths sure are pretty with the colorful dishes.

  20. I found my very first Platonite piece at Goodwill the other day and now I'm hooked! Your collection is amazing and your table settings are gorgeous as usual.

    Happy Pink Saturday!
