These vintage holly plates are a set 4 dinner plates that are part of a unique yellow, green, and red pattern of holiday dinnerware with a gold colored edging. They are an extremely attractive variation on the usual holly and berry designs, and beacuse they are microwave and dishwasher safe they are very practical and easy to use.
The pale yellow/cream border of these dishes is definitely a variation, but an extremely attractive one, and neutral enough to allow you endless options for varying your home's unique holiday look each year for years to come. Check out Eclectica Gallery's other listings if you would like to mix in some solid red pieces (perhaps salad plates) to create your own individual look with these dinner plates.
I was unable to determine when this pattern came out or how long it was open stock, but it is discontinued now. And while you can find selected pieces of it in the resale market, there does not seem to be enough of it around compared to other patterns that you are likely to be duplicated by anyone else among your circle of holiday parties.
These plates came to me in a rather large quantity of pieces of this pattern as part of an estate, but the different kinds of pieces vary in number, so I will be offering them in a number of different listings. Order the number you need to satisfy your holiday plans. I will be offering salad/dessert plates, rimmed soup bowls, cups & saucers, and various types of accessories in separate listings.

All of the pieces are in excellent condition with no damage or visible evidence of use. Dinner plates are 10 1/2" diameter, and other pieces are sized in proportion. The rimmed soup bowls are wide, but only 1 1/2"deep. The cups are wide at the bottom so that the saucers that go with them function well as bread and butter sized side plates when you don't care to use the cups with them.
These dishes have the extra attraction of being microwave and dishwasher safe -- no ladies at the kitchen sink after Christmas dinner handwashing dishes with delicate metallic edging. Just load them in the dishwasher and get back to the fun. And with the ability to reheat food on them in the microwave you might want to start a tradition of using these as your every day dishes from Thanksgiving through New Years for a fun and easy way to let your family enjoy the warm feelings of anticipation in your everyday life leading up to the biggest days of high fun.
