Flower Floral Decorative Dish Jewelry Catchall Catch-All Tray Trinket Vintage Salem Heirloom
This dish is for the flower lover.
It is sweet, romantic, girlie, floral, and nods to simpler days and times gone by.
The center is painted with a beautiful bouquet of flowers you would find in an old fashioned garden. I see a tulip, pansy rose, and forget-me-nots. It looks like the garden your grandma might have had.
The square rimmed bowl is rounded on the bottom and flairs up to form a more square shape. The rim is painted in a pale iridescent green hand has a small dotted, texture detail.
This dish or tray would be great in a girls room, a guest room or a powder room. It also works really well with shabby chic decor.
Use it to corral jewelry, hair ties or your favorite tiny trinkets.

About Salem Heirloom:
The Salem China Company was located in Salem, Ohio in Columbian County, northwest of East Liverpool.
It was founded by Patrick and John McNicol, Daniel Cronin, and William Smith in 1898 with production beginning a year later. By 1930, the pottery was firing 25,000 pieces per day and at the height of production employed over 500 people. Salem China stopped manufacturing wares in 1967 and was reorganized into a sales and service company. Many of the distinctive shapes from the 1930s and 1940s were created by designer Vicktor Schreckengost. Some of the more collectible lines today are Tricorne — an art deco, triangle shape from the 1930s, and Free Form — a modern design from the late 1940s. Other popular lines include Symphony, New Yorker, Heirloom, and Century.
