A few treasures

Just wanted to share with you a few things I found while clearing out my dad's house last year
Though I am normally not a "plate" person I do love these. The first one is dated 1965 by Royal China Company. I love the red color and the heartwarming feel of the scene

This next one is handmade and was a gift to my great grandparents. They were married in the late 1800's, not quite sure of the date on the plate. Love the iridescent detail in this

I thought this little pitcher and bowl  was cute too. It was a gift to celebrate my grandparents 50th anniversary sometime in the early 70's
not the best picture

  16. Great treasures! The transferware is lovely. I think I'll have to have some someday.
    I have a 50th Anniversary cup and saucer from my grandparents' 50th. I should examine it more carefully. From about the same time as yours.
    Have a great weekend!
