Chintzware is always so cheerful ... in fact, though it was introduced in the late 1920's it really took off in the 1930's ... I think everyone was just feeling dragged down by the depression, and needed something to make them smile.
Of course early chintz was inexpensive and was made for every day ... it was only later in the 50's and 60's that it became very fine and expensive.
Chintz is one of those things I keep collecting, then selling and starting over again. I love it! Its so Pollyanna, don't you think?
My friend Dorothy has a lovely collection of Chintzware, some of it she purchased from me, during my waning phases ... Check out my blog post about her collection.
