Mid-Century Texas Ware “Plastics”

The fifties and sixties were all about plastics.  Here are the sugar bowl and a serving dish that were used in my home when I was a kid growing up in that era.  I love the colors.

    I love all the vintage plastic and Melmac dishes, serving pieces, cups, anything. The colors were always great and God knows I love the sound of the pieces touching each other.

    Are these the only pieces left from your childhood? I’m thinking the whole set is lurking around somewhere.

    I never had any Texas Ware pieces but have a ton of other brands of mixed pieces.

    I guess we load you tubes differently than we used to. Sorry about the dupe! I thought I’d taken one of the off before I hit the fail safe button.

    No this was it. I remember a yellow creamer, but it’s long gone, I think. The good news is, my cousin is buying Mom’s house as a place to (hide from the police?) hang out, so we’re just leaving a lot of stuff there for him to be able to use when he holes up in rural Nebraska. So I will have more time to rummage through cupboards sometime this winter when he’s not there because someone has to check on things periodically when he’s back in North Carolina.
