About Kimbesa

I love dishes, and I continue to haunt thrift stores, estate sales, and other places where vintage china, dinnerware and glassware are to be found.

I talk about Dishes

Made in the USA

Even dishes are Irish



Like food, china and dinnerware can take you places, too.

Take Noritake's Keltcraft line, made in Ireland in the 1980s and 1990s. Soft, pale colors, as on this darling creamer, speak with charm about a vibrant land. Ireland in the spring is very green to us North Americans. In May and June it's so green in can make your eyes water.

The Kilkee pattern from the Keltcraft line is pale tan with butterflies and pastel blue flowers. This brings up that Kilkee is a real place, in County Clare, on the west coast of Ireland. West Clare is known as a ruggedly beautiful land with the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren, where naturalists from around the world visit to see the unique plants tucked into its rocky surface.

The Keltcraft line has other pattern names -- like Ireland, Wicklow, Shannon Spring, Misty Isle and Tranquil Glen -- that evoke a sense of place. A travelogue in dinnerware....
