Perfect for your Autumn table, here is a marvelous mid century heirloom china made in the good ol' U.S.A.! This sophisticated dinnerware set of Lifetime China by Homer Laughlin China is done gorgeously in the classic and oh-so-graceful Prairie Gold wheat pattern. It features a creamy off white backdrop accented entirely in metallic gold, with gold banding trim around the edge of each dish and an ultra shiny glaze finish that would make your dinner table truly an elegant sight to behold!

There is so much special charm to this set with its amazing wheat pattern, Prairie Gold, and hard as we've looked, we can't find a thing wrong with any of the patterns -- no wear has gotten through to the wheat pattern whatsoever! LOVE the delicate gold banding accenting the edge of each dish, and the curvy, graceful wheat design whipping in the wind makes one think of the wind rushing through the prairie, farm life, tire swings, little girl braids, dirty scabby knees, fishing, catching frogs, and doing your chores quickly just so you can go skinny dipping at the pond!

You will receive a total of thirty-seven (37) dishes (see exact inventory below - be aware that the photos show a few pieces that are NOT included so be sure to read the inventory and convo us with any questions), and, boy, are they in fabulous vintage condition! Most look like they were hardly ever used with only minor utensil marks, no chips whatsoever, and some look never to have been used whatsoever! Even better, you do have to look pretty closely at this set to see their usage marks. The wheat pattern is practically in perfect condition throughout, perhaps due to its "Semi-Vitreous" glaze (as it is marked on the bottom) and the overall apparent light usage of the set in its previous vintage life. A special bonus with this set is that you get sixteen (16) of the dinner plates! Seems like you can never have enough of those with dinner guests popping out of nowhere, now can you?

Encircled with a glorious gold wreath, the bottom of most of the dishes reads as follows:
"Lifetime China Co.
SEMI-VITREOUS
Alliance, Ohio
Prairie Gold"

Some dishes in this set exhibit more wear than others, with the dinner plates having the most apparent utensil marks and the bowls and serving pieces having the least. It's pretty hard to find even utensil marks on most of these pieces, except in very bright light. There are a few places where the gold banding has light wear and there are a few usage marks here and there, although most is not real noticeable unless you are specifically looking for it. There are some minor manufacturing imperfections such as a stray bit of extra gold on the underside of a dish here and there or very small bumps in the finish throughout the set, but that is evidently normal for this type of Homer Laughlin china. The side of the casserole dish has a noticeable light tan stain at approx. 1/2" across, but it appears to have been part of the manufacturing process as it's under the glaze.

Remember to click on each photo to enlarge it for detail and contact us with any questions prior to purchase so you can be sure that this set meets your needs; we want you to be thrilled with your finds from DollFood! Be aware that this set has been previously used and does show it somewhat, but we believe that is part of its vintage china charm and inherent history! If you feel the same way, this beautiful set could be for you.

As usual with DollFood, we will wrap this set up ever so carefully and do our very best to pack it for safe shipment (we are HUGE lovers and practitioners of bubble wrap!!). We have successfully shipped delicate vintage goods like this all over the world and use a combination of recycled and/or new packing material as needed to do our best to try to ensure the irreplaceable goods we offer arrive in the same condition they left us in. With this kind of investment, you may wish to have us add insurance to your shipping total (as our shop policies state [please be sure to read them], we do not add insurance unless the buyer specifically asks and pays for it first so it's totally your choice and risk) -- just include a note to the seller as you check out and we will invoice you for the insurance through PayPal separately to give you more peace of mind. Please note that we may choose to ship this in a few separate, smaller boxes to save you on shipping costs.

Could you be the etsyian who will love it and cherish it as much as the previous mid century owner did? Or perhaps you have a very special person or couple in mind who would enjoy it greatly? We hope you have just the perfect place for this china to charm on!
