My Vintage: Bowls and Platter

While I was at home at the end of July, my mom gave me a box full of vintage finds. Most of them were from my grandparents home, but a few things she found in the camps. My dad is in the process of tearing down one of the two remaining cottages from the original tourist camp (now closed, obviously), so while cleaning it out, my mom set aside a few things for me.
First up is a set of four bowls - the bottom says "Alfred Meakin England".
I love this pattern. The bouquet of wildflowers is so pretty! I especially love the orange poppy and gold rims. While they are much loved and not in the best condition, this is perfect for me since I'm going to be using them anyway.
Next is a platter - the bottom says "Myott, Son & Co. England".
Again, not in the best condition, but I don't have many platters so this one will be used on occasion. I love the orange flowers, the scrollwork details and the octagonal shape.
Last but not least (unless you count size) is this darling little bowl my sister-in-law found at a garage sale. It looks like Pyrex but says "Termocrisa Mexico 11" on the bottom.
A perfect addition to my collection of little bowls. The pattern is too cute!

Are you a vintage collector? Show me some of your favourite finds!
