Vintage Thingies Thursday & Friday Show and Tell – Cream Soup and Liners

Show and Tell

Show and Tell Friday is hosted by the very talented Kelli at There is No Place Like Home

For a long time I’ve been looking to buy cream soup and saucers for my two best china sets. But the cost per unit is so high that even on sale I’ve not been able to get any at all.
A cream soup bowl or bouillon cup has two handles and is a bit smaller than a cereal bowl. It comes with a matching saucer, called a saucer, liner or stand.

Just last month I visited the hospital thrift shop and found a vintage cream soup and stand in the Wedgwood Queensware “Edme” pattern, with its elegant embossed ribbed design.

Also nearby were 3 dinner plates and 3 bread and butter plates. “The Edme pattern is a creamy porcelain with 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 1908-1997.

Since I’ve been gathering white and off-white plates and bowls in a variety of patterns, I decided to buy them. Total cost was just $3.25. Since then I found another dinner plate and three cream soup bowls and saucers.

I am looking forward to serving cream of broccoli, cream of potato, and asparagus soups in these special bowls.

Of course I am still hoping to stumble on bargains on fine china cream soups!

I missed Vintage Thingies Thursday yesterday since I was very busy with the return of my mother, after a month of being away. Do stop to see the posts listed by Suzanne at Coloradolady.

I, too, have been in search of cream soup bowls with liners in red transferware - any pattern will do. But, alas, they are so expensive. Love your white ones. Maybe, I'll have to go down that avenue! Hope the return of your mother is all going smoothly. Don't forget to take care of yourself. Sally
