A pretty little serving dish



I got this pretty little serving dish in a local thrift store. I love the flowery pattern. I can't wait to use it; it will look so nice on our Shabbat table.

Dear Anna,

Beautiful pattern.. Makes me wonder, is there a way to make a dish kosher if you are unsure how it was used before?

Oh my, what a lovely piece of chintzware! You might want to look it up and see if it is valuable. They are still making it, but older pieces can be quite expensive.

You may have just lucked onto quite a little piece there, my dear. :-) I found some sterling once at a thrift store, for $3. Nice little bon bon dish. :-) I'm certainly not going to turn it down, not for that price!

This looks like Royal Albert china, but I may be wrong. Very pretty! It is amazing the things people throw away.....

I have a pitcher and bowl set in that same pattern. :-)

Really pretty, but doubtful it's valuable. All the local department stores (here in Israel) have been selling that design these past few years.
How did you make it kosher?

Tamsen&Tammy,

Our local thrift store asks how plates, cups and dishes were used before receiving them from people. The items are then sorted into "meat", "dairy" and "parve". We got this dish from the "parve" stand. I wouldn't, of course, get something like this if I didn't know how it was used before.

Tamsen, koshering a dish depends on the material it was made of. Koshering glass, for example, is relatively simple, while porcelain is virtually impossible to kosher.

I love thrift store finds, too - this pattern is beautiful!
