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

Restaurant ware, vintage and modern



Remember the days of swivel bar stools covered in red Naugahyde, Dixie cups and burgers in a basket? That's where restaurant wares take us, whether modern or vintage. Back to Happy Days...

Syracuse China has been known for many years, for restaurant ware china in the vintage market, and for its modern cousins. Many people like these wares because they're so durable. You can use restaurant ware plates to help melt the cheese on your grilled cheese sandwich, for example, without worry about the plate's taking the heat. These heavy plates can take normal use and then some.

Buffalo China is another favorite. Vintage examples were made in the USA, and available in the secondary market. You'll see the modern versions of this ware in buffet, cafeteria and other restaurants, too. Bowls like these in the photo, in white, are great for serving chili or stew on a cool evening. There's something comforting about the weight, as well as the memories...
