Vintage mid Century Edwin M. Knowles "Ribbon" Pattern, a perfect design for today's modern retro look. These vintage bread and butter or side dishes are from the famed Knowles China Company. Ribbon was introduced in 1954 and is a stylized pin wheel of charcoal and light gray ribbons, atop a center design of a yellow gold shade very similar to Pantone's Oil Yellow as forecast in interior color trends for 2012. Very mid century in look and feel the dishes are rounded squares in a coupe design. They are flat in the center with slightly curved upward corners.

Use these dishes mixed & matched with similar colors and style for a hip vintage look. They would look fantastic with Russell Wright or other china designers using these same color palettes. If you are collecting this pattern I also have bowls available. http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/studio/RefinedVintage/0/0/113157

These small bread and butter plates are approximately 6 in.x 5.75 inches. They are very much a mid century design from the shape of each plate to the colors used and very much right back in style again! Right at home in a Mad Men influenced home décor, also considered an Atomic Era pattern by some.
