It's the first PINK Saturday of 2009! I'm starting the year off with something pretty wonderful, and I know many of the participants have saved something great for today, also. Be sure to visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound and see what she and the other gals have on display.This porcelain dish has been on my mom's dresser for my entire life. It's her little catch-all dish for jewelry, change, safety pins, etc.On the bottom of the dish is this marking, so I did some research to find out more information. The Ilmenau Porcelain Factory was founded in 1777 and used a variety of markings over the centuries. The one on this dish dates from 1903-1930. On a more pop culture note, I also found out that Ava Gardner had the same dish! If you don't know who Ava was, shame on you!
