The blue dishes displayed in the 4th of July post is my set of Liberty Blue ironstone dinnerware made by Staffordshire in England. It's a set that was sold in select grocery stores over the country in 1976 to commemorate our 200th anniversary of independence. Even though I have thirteen place settings (I know, I'm a dishhog) & several serving pieces, I don't (and may never) have all of the pieces that were sold originally. The rimmed soups & soup tureen evade me or rather the prices yet on eBay cause slight heart palpitations even now...
Since you had questions about them I thought I'd group my pictures in this one post for you...all. ;) Yes Ma'am, just for Y'all!

These were a gift from Eldest Brother that he bought while on military duty in Germany. They're not part of the Liberty Blue set, but I like them better than the ones that go with the set as they add that added bit of historic nostalgia to my china cabinet display.
