|A wintry hutch from a previous year -- you can see on the bottom shelf the tureen, a tea cup, and a gravy boat.|
I then went back to my old computer and yes, there are half a dozen pictures of these dishes in iPhoto, but for whatever reason I cannot get them out of iPhoto and so I cannot post them. For now. I'm not giving up, but I'm giving up for today. So I will just show you a few photos of past decorating that included these dishes.

Tori, if you are interested in learning more about the pattern, here is one site with some information: Ashworth Brothers Aesthetic Black. The dishes are Ashworth Brothers, circa 1880. I believe they came in other colors like red, green, and blue, but I could be misinformed. Hope you've enjoyed learning a bit more about these interesting dishes. If I ever get my pictures out of iPhoto, I will be sure and post them. Or ... I could just take some new photos!
