I enjoy collecting the advertising for the vintage dishes that decorate my tabletop. Here's a look at a magazine ad for Stangl marmalade or jam jars that were produced as an accessory for the Toastmaster toaster company.
This ad uses the pottery in a traditional breakfast setting. Other marketing programs promote the toaster, tray and pottery accessories as perfect for party foods. Simply put your hors d'oeuvres in the dishes and let your guests toast their own bread for munching. Here's my 2011 interpretation of this festive concept~
See the logo on the toaster?
It also appears on the snack trays.
The little feet on the marmalades fit so perfectly in the trays.
I received this lovely Mexican-themed tablecloth from a friend. It's very similiar to a Wilendur pattern called Mexican 2. Textile firms often copied each other, so it's not uncommon to find similiar designs by different makers. This cloth has no tag.
I hope you enjoyed your Toastmaster toast! I'm sharing this tabletop for Tabletop Tuesday at A Stroll Through Life and for Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.
You can also see this tablecloth in use for a tribute to the 75th Anniversary of Fiesta dinnerware.
