So, I started poking around, and of course there is already a ton of wonderful sites about both Vera the woman and Vera the brand:
Since I really don't need to re-write what is already written, let's get to the fun part - the stuff! I was pretty amazed to find how many different types of items have Vera prints on them - I knew about the scarves, of course, and also the linens and clothing... but I didn't know there is also dinnerware - Mikasa dinnerware, as a matter of fact!
Could it get any better? I think not!
Ok, let's have a look around... First up are the items I have up at auction this week:
Vintage Vera Blue Flower Placemats Set
Vintage Vera Mikasa Field Flowers Placemats Set
Vintage Vera Rainbow Twin Sheet Set
Vintage Vera Floral Full Sheet Set
The Field Flowers placemat set is what led me to finding out that some Mikasa dinnerware is graced with Vera designs - a quick search on Replacements returns 22 results for Vera Mikasa! Here are a couple of my favorites:
Vera Mikasa Butterfly Dinner Plate
Vera Mikasa Abstract Dinner Plate
Vera Mikasa Bamboo Dinner Plates
Apparently another company call Island Worcester also released some Vera patterns, Replacements only lists a few, and they are just as awesome as the Mikasa ones:
Vera Island Worcester Floral Cup & Saucer Set
Of course scarves, linens, and clothing are most often associated with Vera, there are hundreds of different patterns - it's a collector's paradise!
Vera Hand Rolled Silk Scarf
Set of 4 Vintage Vera Tea Towels
Set of 5 Vintage Vera Horse Napkins
Vintage Vera Butterfly Tunic Top
Vintage Vera Floral Tablecloth
Vintage Nautical Vera Dress
I could go on like this all day... I'll sum it up though, in one word - *swoon*. ;)
