Lilly : A friend went to a London museum last month - you got any of this whacky 50's stuff at home ?
Ronnie : I very much doubt it - fixing a snack - I'll look later.
Lilly : okay . . enjoy . .

It's amazing what you can find "Just under your nose", I once found my mouth there.

@CElliottUK: Keep it quiet, Chris . . I saw an ear yesterday. (Ronnie)
This is very cleverly done ! and funny :-)
1 Oct 2012 6:26am
@Veronique: Yes, I laughed myself, at first . . but, then, thought it thru sitting at my Formica table . . closed the kitchen door, now. (Ronnie)
an other brillant composition lilly and ronnie ☺
indded, i can imagine your house as a museum too with all the things you use for your photos, isnt it ?? ;-))
have a nice monday

@☺ ► ƸɼiϾ ◄ ☼: If only that was not true, Eric . . if only . . but you can see the light here is better now I've gone over to electricity. (20th Cent. Ronnie)
OMG, I remember my mother having plates like that, I would be about 5, I can't imagine todays sushi or the likes looking tempting on the design !
1 Oct 2012 6:52am
@Christine: This was available in Woolworth's, Christine - your mom mighta met mine in there ! (Ronnie)
Home maker, from Woolworth if I'm not mistaken. You've got to stop living in the past Ronnie !
1 Oct 2012 6:54am
@Doug: Correct ! "It was available in British Woolworth stores from 1958 till 1970. A certain Homemaker soup terrine that sold for twelve shillings and sixpence can now be valued at as much as £100 at auctions." (eBay) (eRonnie)
A fantastic composition and combination.
1 Oct 2012 7:09am
An dem Design hat sich doch in letzten 50 Jahren nicht viel geändert.
Wen nützt hochwertiges Porzellan wenn er nichts zu Beißen hat.
1 Oct 2012 7:13am
This is so old? that still looks modern.
A cup of tea would be nice ....
1 Oct 2012 7:21am
@❀ Yvonne Simons ❀: Yes, according to the caption at the Museum there, it goes back to 1956. Sadly, all I have is that one plate . . (Retro-Ronnie)
Attention de ne pas la cassé, tu tiens un trésor dans ta main surtout les biscuits :) Excellent cadrage. Belle journée.
1 Oct 2012 7:23am
@Tede: Oui, je ne voudrais pas le casser après tout ce temps ! (Ronnie)
Be careful, Ronnie, don't drop it!!!!!!
The museum pieces look slightly whiter ..........
1 Oct 2012 7:55am
@Ellebelle: I took my shot under gaslight, Ellebelle . . smiles . . (Retro-Ronnie)
I'm sure I ate from those in Hank Marvin's cafe a few weeks ago Ronnie (picture to follow later). So don't worry they are still popular.
1 Oct 2012 8:05am
@Curly: Hank Marvin ? I think he's the guy left a Fender Stratocaster in my kitchen back in '56-'57 about the time I bought that plate, Curly ! Not sure where I put it, now. (Ronnie Dreaming)
Très jolie cette vaisselle ! Je te souhaite une agréable journée
1 Oct 2012 8:18am
I have especially glassware from the 50's but I like those cups and plates too.
PS. I like your plate.
1 Oct 2012 8:19am
@Marilla: Thanks, Marilla. I did eat that cheese and crackers from the plate after the shoot . . strange feeling. (Ronnie)
Trust Ronnie to miss out on life's little treasures:)
1 Oct 2012 8:42am
Poor design is not synonymous of mass market.
1 Oct 2012 9:43am
Je prendrais bien volontiers un morceau de ce délicieux pouce...
Bon début de semaine lumineuse !
1 Oct 2012 9:48am
@Benkirane Thami: ha ha . . got it !! (Ronnie)
Hihi...J'espère que tu ne t'ai pas cassé les dents dessus...!
1 Oct 2012 10:04am
After you reach your one hundredth birthday, Ronnie...you can draw a will and leave this plate to your great-grandchildren. They'll make a fortune at auctions and need no work at all! Think about it....think how grateful they all are going to be to YOU!
1 Oct 2012 10:22am
@Japanalia: Hush now, Gabriela - if the G-children get wise to my having anything valuable, I'll not be long for this world. Think of the genetic code they carry ! (Ronnie)
I must confess I don't care much for cheese, thumb and biscuits - I find the knuckle a little too chewy!!!
1 Oct 2012 12:56pm
I know how you feel! I keep finding things just like those that I own, or have owned, in antique stores....I also am hearing my favorite "new" music on the oldies station......What is going on???
1 Oct 2012 12:58pm
@Tracy: It is a warp in the fabric of Time, Tracy - same thing that made my hair and teeth fall out and makes girls run faster than me when I chase them . . a warp, a cruel warp, s'all. (Ronnie)
Very nice composition, the dishes is beautiful, I love the drawings above. Great shot.
1 Oct 2012 1:36pm
It's just as much fun reading the wisecracks of your viewers as the grin this picture gives me. I wonder what stimulated such design uh, departures. Post war exuberance? Some sort of joke run amok, like the pet rock or hula hoop? In any case, I smile at memories of Woolworths, and earlier, the dime store called Quigleys were 25 cents went a good distance for a little 5 year old girl.
1 Oct 2012 1:55pm
@Joyce: Thank you, Joyce. There is a little background on the pottery here at eBay of all places ! (Ronnie)
Very elegant 50s designs and beautifully presented - at least by Lilly. However, Ronnie surprises with more good taste than just the cheese and crackers!
1 Oct 2012 2:25pm
@Stephen: Thanks, Stephen. I thought you were about to mention my thumb - I used a lighting set-up here prepared for a series of paintings and had to hold the plate vertically to get the coverage - thus the digit ! (Ronnie Excuse 68332)
I love this tea set. very nice pattern.
1 Oct 2012 2:27pm
Well done, Ronnie, you know what really is important. Everything in its time.
1 Oct 2012 2:39pm
Charming and magnificent dialogue elements in the table ... As always make me smile ... your friendly good humor ... Best regards, Adela
1 Oct 2012 2:57pm
De bons biscuite avec la courbe de l'assiette et ce tasse quelle compo sueprbe.
1 Oct 2012 3:40pm
@Nicou: Merci pour le rappel qu'il s'agit d'un site de photographie - nous oublions facilement que là, faut l'avouer ! (Ronnie)
Thank you for the reminder that this is a photography site - we easily forget that here, must admit ! (Ronnie)
some things are timeless ... and everything comes back ... (though i hope not the crackers ... ;-))
1 Oct 2012 6:06pm
@franz: ha ha . . I wasn't ready for that . . lol . . (Ronnie Smiling)
fantastic atmosphere in this picture
B / W was very hip and the snack has remained :-))
1 Oct 2012 6:31pm
@Aly: Well, I have only a few pieces and never thought I'd hear it was in a museum ! (Ronnie)
1 Oct 2012 6:35pm
@Irene: Thank you, Irene - this image was not planned . . just kinda happened ! (Ronnie)
:)))) Another nice conversation ...very good shot
1 Oct 2012 7:16pm
@SalSa: Thank you, Sahar. (Lilly and Ronnie)
1 Oct 2012 8:14pm
I had no idea this dinnerware existed. What I find very interesting are the images on the dinnerware. I think I remember some of those goofy lamps and similar items. As always, this is such a cool and smart creation.
1 Oct 2012 8:21pm
@Steve Rice: Yes . . seems it was sold by Woolworths in the UK during the 50's and 60's . . the design captures those times so well, I think. Here is a little about it. (Ronnie)
Lilly does not like antique prefer to eat a woman ronnie list.
once told me an artist, "Prado Museum" is wonderful, but at 14.00 h. I prefer fried eggs with bacon.
fantastic edition ronnie
1 Oct 2012 8:44pm
@Melocoton: Thank you, Pablo -- love how everyone interprets our little images in different ways -- that is really nice. ( from Lilly )
Mmmmmm, cheese and biscuits
1 Oct 2012 8:57pm
@Alun: . . Barber's Farmhouse Cheddar from Shepton Mallet, Somerset, with pickled silverskin onions - stand well back, Alun. (Ronnie)
it's funny to found out that we ..
become a museum piece,
that eats, plays, works, .. with stuff, other people come to look for at the museum. :-))
1 Oct 2012 9:20pm
@curieuzeneuzemosterdpot: Agree - it is a One World feeling, yes ? (Ronnie)
When I find this stuff in antique stores, I am really feeling my age. You could sell this stuff Ronnie and get a better place to live!
2 Oct 2012 12:03am
@Elaine Hancock: lol . . with all the junk I he has there, I doubt those in 'better places' would appreciate the move, Elaine ! ( from Lilly )
Like Joyce, I also enjoy reading the comments, and remember Woolworth's here in the US as a dime store. Can't say I ever remember seeing this pattern on dishware, however.
2 Oct 2012 1:04am
@Julie L. Brown: Agree with you on the Comments which give a lovely sense of involvement - thanks to everyone for those !
As to Woolworths, yes, they are gone from here and I admit I seldom felt the need to go there until they were gone. Lost count of the number of little items I find I need and hear myself saying "I could have got that in Woolworths' . . . (Ronnie)
I love the link between the two
2 Oct 2012 1:35am
Very nice manicured thumb worth more than any antiques. Thoughtful subject how plain furniture and things we use carelessly now will become valuable antiques after a little period of time. Never thought about this now I'm looking at things under my nose with this new idea and a Wow
2 Oct 2012 4:25am
@Othersideblue: Thanks, OSB . . it is, indeed, odd to discover that others see our everyday things in a different way - I guess eBay is the living proof of that ! (Ronnie)
I can't believe as a "designer" that I haven't seen this museum quality art over here on this side of the pond. Hope you enjoyed your snack...and I'm sure you will hang onto your dish!!
2 Oct 2012 7:02am
@DULCIE: Those crackers tasted 1960 when I ate them off that plate, Dulcie ! (Retro-Ronnie)
An original and funny composition, as always :-)
2 Oct 2012 8:06am
Really creative with this framing. Nice result
2 Oct 2012 10:33am
@Calusarus: Not sure how we came to arrive at this framing, now, but it does sit well on the page for some reason. Thank you. (Ronnie)
You can have a museum at home and make money with tickets for entry .............brillant !
2 Oct 2012 10:39am
Now this is really something! Discovering some moth-eaten stuff in Ronnie's place should not surprise anybody, but this dish in such good condition is just amazing!!! I keep worrying if the crackers and cheese are still safe to eat though (I'm sure Ronnie won't pay attention to their expiration dates)!:-) Fantastic and refreshing work as always!
2 Oct 2012 11:35am
@hugo poon: Thank you, Hugo - Ronnie mentioned the crackers were good to "end 09" but, that may have been 1909 rather than this September, of course ! ( from Lilly )
Nothing like a museum oddity to bring out the "oo's" and "um's" and the "?s". Love Ronnie's bumble through it all!
2 Oct 2012 12:31pm
@Gemma Wiseman: ha ha . . bumble-bumble . . . (Ronnie)
hehe, fun story
2 Oct 2012 12:59pm
Chez moi, les biscuits de collection ne restent jamais longtemps au musée ;-)))
2 Oct 2012 1:55pm
A superb composition !
2 Oct 2012 2:18pm
2 Oct 2012 5:02pm
fantastic composition and processing
2 Oct 2012 5:22pm
Dear Lilly is always on the lookout for items of interest for you ROnnie. I would feel right at home with this set. My kitchen has not been renovated, I suspect since the 50s. The cabinets and counters are turquoise formica. The floor is red linoleum. The wall paper is covered with teapots and vines. I feel so at home there, It is so retro, it is becoming popular again. So Ronnie, be not discouraged and enjoy your snack.
2 Oct 2012 6:02pm
@Ruthiebear: ' . . turquoise, teapots and vines . . ' I must say I am getting a little dizzy already, Ruthie . . I wonder if you have the flying ducks on the wall, too . . (Ronnie)
glad it wasn't a stoneage museum. Guess what you might find to put your saber tooth tiger beef snack... Well conceived.
2 Oct 2012 7:27pm
@João Mourão: Indeed, yes . . things could have been worse ! (Ronnie)
Wow. I'm impressed with the match, and that you had a match.
2 Oct 2012 8:19pm
@Anita: Well, in fact, I had a match, lost it and recovered it only after 25 years ! By the time Lilly showed me the museum pic, I'd got my plate back ! Way it goes. (Ronnie)
This reminds me of a book I read recently "Second Hand" by Michael Zadoorian.
2 Oct 2012 8:20pm
@Anita: Ah, yes, I know the book : "For Richard, junk is a way of life, a calling, and a passion . . " . . (Ronnie)
Wow, Lilly, I kind of figured Ronnie ate off of "museum quality" paper plates, and recycled ones at that. I'm impressed that he owns this.
2 Oct 2012 11:56pm
@B. Thomas: Until now, it had last been washed in 1974, Barbara, so don't get too impressed! ( from Lilly )
belle mise en scène.. sympa la vaisselle graphique !
3 Oct 2012 5:48am
Ohhhh if we had kept old utensils !!!!
3 Oct 2012 7:02am
@Graciel.la (Vic, Catalonia): Yes, even I (!) regret throwing out some of the old stuff along the way . . even I . . (Vintage Ronnie)
3 Oct 2012 11:07am
It's okay if the cookie crumbles, but keep that plate intact ! ;)
3 Oct 2012 1:43pm
@Rick: Yes, knowing the set is in a national Museum, I'm getting to treasure my one plate ! (Ronnie)
I have just looked through every one of your photo's, I love them :-)
3 Oct 2012 7:05pm
@Kate: wow . . that is some looking, Kate ! 584 of them and each one means something special to us because of the way we 'make' them . . strange feeling. Thanks for looking and for your Comment. Welcome to O2S. ( Lilly and Ronnie )
Like the compo with this touch of color of the snack on the nice duo of B&W (color)... :-)
3 Oct 2012 7:12pm
@Evelyne Dubos: Yes, b&w was a strange choice in the run-up to the color-crazy 1960's . . but the food stood out like you say ! Thanks, Evelyne. (Ronnie)
4 Oct 2012 5:42am
un graphisme qui durera dans le temps.. mais oupsss!!! attention de ne pas le casser... !!!;-))))))et toujours des idées pleins la tête Ronnie...
4 Oct 2012 7:55am
@Manola: Oui, j'ai peur de le casser, maintenant. . ! (Ronnie)
Très appétissant pourtant !... mais attention doit être immangeable :))
4 Oct 2012 12:09pm
b&w nickel on this design...
6 Oct 2012 4:33pm
:) very nice & interesting!
Please me a cup of tea.
6 Oct 2012 9:33pm
…I hope that didn't come out of the show case :)
7 Oct 2012 2:17pm
@bluechameleon: ha ha . . I've been to the museum to check it out myself, now, and they have more on display than seen here. Sadly, I do not have any of the 'rare' items like the fruit dish and creamer jug . . . (Ronnie)
J'adore cette composition.
8 Oct 2012 6:51pm
Love the composition...especially the text in the background.
