Where can I find this plate?

Yesterday my mom and I took a trip to a local thrift shop. I fell in love with this pretty blue and white plate. It was $9, a lot I thought for the thrift store, but I had to have it. It is marked on the back, "Stangl White Grape." I know there are some plate lovers here in blogland so I thought I would ask if anyone knows of this pattern? I've been doing a ton of google searches but I'm not finding anything on this particular pattern. Even the replacement website and ebay turned up nothing. I'm curious when it was made and would love to find some more.
I also found this sweet plate. I plan on hanging these on the wall with some other plates I have stashed away. It will be a whole plate filled wall.


This came in the mail today (so that means a great mail day!) and I couldn't wait to show you. It was an ebay purchase and I am loving the colors and the rick rack. Aprons can be addictive, I'm already scouring Ebay for another one. :)

I too have seen those plates before. I will keep my eyes open.
When I did a google search the only thing I came up with was a candy dish. They have to be out there somewhere.

Love the apron.

http://www.happy-memories.com/display.aspx?inv=5433&server=www.happy-memories.com/pix&page=stangl is a bowl. I checked stangl website and there is a slot for that pattern but nothing in it. It appears it may be pretty rare and therefore not real inexpensive. Unless you can find someone that doesn't know what they have... Good luck and happy stangl hunting.

Hi I stopped by from Cherry's Jubilee and I LOVE your blog. Those plates are beautiful and good luck on finding more of the blue one. I also LOVE that kitchen shelf above your windows in your last post. What a great space to display things.

Hi there,
I came over from Cherry's place. What a charming Site and home you have. I scrolled down to see your Valentine banner. It's adorable. I just posted about making a banner myself last night.
Have a good day!

Great plates! I hopped over from Cherry's place. LOVE your apron and your home is adorable! I was just at Ross this weekend and they had fabulous aprons in really cool prints from 7.99 - 12.99! I thought it was pretty random but very cool. Just FYI - another great bargain!

Hi, I stopped by from Cherry's Jubilee. Can't wait to explore. The plate is beautiful. I was going to suggest ebay but you have already tried that. I have found that if I have a specific piece of china I want more of I post the brand/manufacturer in my favorites and when a piece is listed I get an e-mail. It may take a while but someone will eventually list a piece. Try it, then you can let ebay search for you, easy. Pam

Cherry sent me over, so hello there. I have had some different patterns in Stangl but I have never seen that one before. It is really pretty and I wish you luck in finding some more pieces. Have a great evening.
