A Day Late......

For Let's Dish, but here I am, with a quick post to share my favorite apple pie plate and dessert plates.  Kathleen, of Cuisine Kathleen, has given us an apple tablescape challenge this month.  


My 'mega' apple pie plate.  It measures 11 inches inside diameter and 12 inches to the edges of the plate.  I have never attempted to bake a pie in it.  Maybe this Thanksgiving will be the first one.



I bought six of these glass apple pie plates about fifteen years ago at a local flea market.  Probably paid too much at $2 each, but I had a thing with apples back then, still do!  If I could get a deal on Franciscan's Apple, well, I'd throw dishes out to make room.  Ha!  I thought I'd set a pretty place for myself while my coffee is brewing.  


I don't remember the name of these plates, I was told by the vendor that they were very old, but who really knows?  If anyone can identify them, please contact me.  

Used my apple place mats, an apple red mug and dessert time is done!


I do have three of these apple coffee cups, but they are packed in the nether regions of my home and I wasn't in a mood to excavate them, but I share this photo from another autumn snack post.

Please visit Kathleen's blog to see wonderfully dressed and very apple-y tablescapes this week.  I will also bring some apple pie and party with Alma for Seasonal Sundays.

  6. Love your plates and your pie plate. Pretty tablescape, Barbara. I have the Franciscan Apple dishes in storage for my son - they belonged to my m-i-l and she wanted him to have them.

  7. I love that pie plate...it would feed a small nation! Your clear apple plates are really pretty with the apple blossom in the center.
    A couple years ago I hit the jackpot at Goodwill...I found service for 4 (5-piece placesetting) of mostly the old Franciscan Apple china for $8.85! I keep forgetting I have it in one of the hutches...maybe I should haul it out and do another table.
    Have a wonderful week, Barbara...

  10. I nearly missed this! I was scrolling through my dashboard this morning and saw this. I looked for something appley to participate but couldn't find a thing that worked for me. One thing I liked on ebay was a set of little glass apple dishes like those but smaller. I was just too cheap to buy them just to participate in a table challenge. I do like them!

  11. It has been really fun to see all the tablescapes this time with all the apples and apple dishes. I have never seen your sweet dishes, but I'm pretty sure that I would be happy to pay that price for them, Do you suppose that they could have been a detergent givewaway once upon a time?

  14. I really like your plates! I have a lot of clear glass apple dishes but they are still at the other house so I missed the challenge. Durn it!

  15. Hello Barbara, Your tablescape in charming. I tend to love older more traditional dishware for tablescapes. I think your apple plate and the cups are lovely. You did a marvelous job of meeting the apple challenge.

    Before I moved to Florida years ago, my kitchen was all apple themed. I just loved it. But unfortunately I sold all of my apple stuff when I moved. Who would have thought I would be wishing for them back. I did move back to Ohio. I love this part of the country, but then again I loved Florida too.

  16. Barbara, on seeing this, I immediately fell in love with those glass plates. I live to do research and found them on eBay and at Replacements. Apparently, they were made by Hazel Atlas and Replacements lists the pattern, as "Atc9". Hope this helps!

  17. Hi Barbara, I'm late in visiting as I went on a girl's getaway weekend to Hot Springs.
    I love your giant apple pie plate and of course those clear apple plates are so pretty. They're similar to mine, but yours has the pretty raised design. Happy Fall! xo

  18. Thanks for joining, Barbara, and I love your apple plate. Sorry I can't help with the identity of the other! Happy October!

  19. Hi Barbara, I can't imagine how many apples you would have to peel and core and chop for that pie plate but it sure is a wonderful dish!! I am familiar with some Franciscan patterns but I'll have to do a search for the apple design. Now I am curious! I hope all is well with you! Linda
