3 or More Tuesday - Treasure Hunt - The Black Rose

Visit Tam @ The Gypsy's Corner for more wonderful Three or More Tuesday posts.

The craze for old dishes make me go hunting every corner for that stuff. We were lucky enough to find a shop which met my expectation. The owner seemed happy that I took mostly all of his old dishes. My colleague companied me and on the way back home, we stopped by a durian stall and enjoyed ourselves eating by the road side.

I have already did an entry on the bowls I purchased last week and now Im going to share the plates which most of us here in Malaysia called as 'The Black Rose'. I bought 7 pieces but looking at it carefully, the design is not the same. There are 2 designs.

3 of Black Roses plates with design 1

and another 3 Black Roses with design 2 (infact the colour of roses too is not exactly black/grey but a bit greenish).

These plates are already more than 40 years old.

Many thanks for visiting me and at the same for leaving me your sweet comments.
