Our China; My mothers pattern

Rosenthal China, "Coins" designed by Raymond Loewy (1950s)

My mother's china is the opposite of my great grandmothers - which is formal.  I never really liked mom's china until I got older and it really is my favorite.  24 carat gold in the circles, of sett by light grey circles; Replacements Ltd. calls it "Rhythm Shapes"  Its simple.  Its fun.  Its clean.  And it was designed by Raymond Loewy - the same man who designed Studebakers (and the Hoover logo, too!).  We use this for parties and special occassions.  My never had the coffeepot - found that on eBay for less than $40!
