So today, F is for Fruit. I wish I could remember how I started this collection and which was my first piece.
Pineapple is a popular fruit for tableware.
So is watermelon.
There’s a special dish here to hold a sliced banana.
The one main requirement for this collection is that the dish must be IN THE SHAPE of a fruit!
Relatives have given me lovely items that have fruit painted or otherwise depicted on them. These have a special place in my heart and on my table, but they don’t qualify for the collection because they are not shaped like fruit.
Pretty, but no.
You can be honest if you think this is the ugliest tableware you've ever seen. I got 20 pieces of it at a yard sale for $5.
What is this? A napkin holder? A model for the top of Carmen Miranda’s headpiece?
When we get to letter V, I’ll show you the vegetables!
If you have tchotchke (and who doesn’t) why not join Tchotchke Queens Pam J and God Bless Ya’ll Real Good and I for letter G?
