Hello Everyone! Thank you for continuing to read in spite of my blogging absence. Summer has been great so far and I've been distracted by road trips, and free time in the garden. I have such a backlog of thrifty finds though, that I promise to get back on the horse!
First up is this trio of Canadian pottery dishes. I first read about Laurentian Art Pottery, or Poterie Laurentienne, from Erin's Blog Yard Sale Snoop. She shared a great find with a distinctive marking on the underside. While out thrifting one day, I came across a similar logo on these dishes.
I enjoy using these types of dishes for garlic prawns with cheese melted over them. The depth of the holes on these dishes, and their French Canadian heritage, make me think that perhaps they were intended for escargot. I'm not quite adventurous enough to taste snails anytime soon though!
At a dollar a dish for these pieces, I think these were a great value. When I first picked them up, I felt that they were really good quality and the markings underneath confirmed it. I understand the company was in business between 1939-2005, but I wonder how old these ones are!
Linking up to Sophie's Flea Market Finds!
