German Orangey Goodness


Today I'd like to share my small collection of orange china aka my babies :P
The tall white tea pot was made by a company called Mitterteich of Germany, the tiny tea cups were made by Freiberger in the GDR and the pattern with the one big orange circle was made by Thomas also from Germany. I drove an hour and 15 mins to get 10 dishes and a tea cup of the Thomas set on Craigslist a few weekends ago. The things I do for vintage!

I would love to know more about when each set was made, but I haven't had much luck finding any info. :(

You should check out replacements.com, to find out about your dishes. You can even order more. You would be surprised at the selection. I found so many neat things that match my china set.
