Vintage Thingie Thursday – 50's Charm


Today’s vintage thing is green dishware by Anchor Hocking in the "Charm" pattern. I showed this dishware in my St. Patrick’s Day tea tablesetting, and wanted to share a little about this simple but brilliant pattern.



The "Charm" pattern was produced by Anchor Hocking between 1950 and 1956 and was produced in both green and a ruby red color way. The square plates also have a starburst pattern in the center.


Plates included bread and butter, dessert, luncheon and dinner sizes. There is also an oblong platter.


Bowls came in dessert, soup and serving sizes.


The square cups were tea or coffee cups while rounded ones were for the large punch bowl and served as punch cups.
