As someone who loves dishes and enjoys doing research on various patterns, I’ve noted that certain patterns become classics and have been copied or modified by many different china manufacturers and in many different countries. I’d like to discuss one such case, dishes with a ribbed pattern.
My vintage subject for today are items similar to the Wedgwood "Edme" pattern, Made in England.
I got started collecting these when I found several pieces at a thrift shop -- 3 Dinner Plates, 1 Cream Soup Bowl and underplate, and 4 Bread and Butter Plates. I wrote about finding the cream soups here. Below is a photo showing a place setting where I used these Edme items:
This Wedgwood pattern is Queensware and is truly an elegant embossed ribbed design
The creamy porcelain has a starburst ridge pattern on plates. Cups have vertical ridges and a pedestal foot. The saucers have a starburst ridge pattern.The Edme pattern was made from 1908 until about 1997. The dinner plate for my new breakfast setting shown in today’s Tablescape Thursday.
Searching online, I’ve spotted several similar patterns with the ribbed design. The first is Mikasa "Italian Countryside" Made in Japan.
Gibson China "Claremont" Made in China, which was recently available at Big Lots in a complete set fserving 4 at a very attractive price. This set of dinner plates, cups, bowls, salad plates, saucers, napkin rings, etc. has been shown in tablescapes all around blogland.
Here are photos from Ebay listings:
The Claremont pattern is all white with embossed scrolls and columns. It was produced from 2002-2006 and is now discontinued.
Another vintage pattern is Meakin "Leeds" Made in England"Backstamp: Traditional Ironstone - Leeds Shape - (Picture of the CROWN) - Reproduced from the original Leeds Pottery of 1760 in Timeless Elegance for Dinnerware Connoissuers by English Craftsmen - Alfred Meakin Staffordshire England."
The J & G Meakin "Classic White pattern" has a ribbed rim that is distinctly scalloped
Another English maker, Johnson Brothers, produced an ironstone pattern called "Athena." It was made in England from 1955-1999.
The Danish firm Dansk, also produced a ribbed pattern made in Japan. I do not know the pattern name.
American china maker, Shenango has a ribbed pattern called "New Castle" Made in USA
This Lenox ribbed pattern,"Temple Off-White" was Made in USA.
Another American manufacturer, Libbey, but Made in China, has a new ribbed pattern
Finally, we ends our review with a vintage ribbed pattern by McCoy:
