I have to admit that I'm still giving baby steps with my vintage knowledge. The first time I ever saw the Franciscan Starburst design I loved it but I had no idea where it was from. It was on Betty Crafter's blog background, I thought it looked like something from the Jetsons, and I LOVE them, so I kept it in mind. I know I might sound hilarious but that's what I thought :D. I really had no idea what it was until I read this blog post by Betty Crafter. Everything was clearer, the design had a name and there were items with it that were manufactured in the early 1950's. How awesome is that?
I started searching about it and found many items made with the design, it was love. I then started to tell all my friends and my partner about it and my wish came true. My partner bought this cup and saucer set for me before my birthday so I could have it as a birthday present but it didn't arrive until this week.
It came sturdily packaged and it was PERFECT in every way. When I finally had it in my hands I thought it was too perfect for a mid-century item. It was glossy and there were no chips or cracks -at all-. It looked like an item I could have picked new from the store yesterday.
What about you, have you received something you really loved recently? I'd love to hear everything about it.
