Vintage White Enamelware
I like the look of vintage white enamelware, especially when I am propping casual outdoor and barbeque recipes. You'll find it in a large variety of kitchenalia, from cookware to tableware. The shapes are simple, and most white pieces have a contrasting edge in black, cobalt blue, or red.
These bowls and salad size plates are a great size, and in really nice condition. I love the irregularities found in the enamel coatings, little bumps and bubbles that add interest.
White pots are easy to find, and the bright interiors help light the contents with a wraparound fill light.
These are a recent find, nice to have the containers with their lids.
The roasting pan below has made its way into more than one of my sets. It is very chippy and scratched, loads of character. Also makes a great tray for serving fresh shrimp, in...what else?...enamelware cups!
