Item/Description: Vintage 1960s-1970s California pottery seven (7)-piece Lazy Susan hostess service set, scrumptiously-colored avocado green.
This charmingly retro entertaining set, which is decoratively ornamented with a raised relief floral motif, is comprised of seven (7) individual pieces. There are four (4) crescent half moon-shaped relish/condiments sectional side dishes, which all surround the fifth and sixth pieces - a main centerpiece covered bowl with a darling flower-shaped finial handle (oftentimes the lids to these bowls go missing over the years, so it’s extra nice that this set still retains its original lid).
The four (4) sectioned relish/condiments compartment dishes and center-most bowl all interlock beautifully with each other, while snugly resting atop the seventh piece in this marvelous set - an elevated pedestal/cake plate-style revolving wooden Lazy Susan turntable base.
Why not serve up a bit of nostalgia along with all the delicious goodies you’ll be serving your guests at your next social bash and entertain in style with this stunning mid-century modern “Mad Men-esque” divided party platter. It’s suitable for any type of festivity, ranging from informal get-togethers such as game day gatherings (especially for Super Bowl Sunday football games), bridge club parties or Mexican fiestas, to special occasions and fancier functions such as an evening of cocktails and hors d’ oeuvres, to even everyday usage during family meals - it will make you the host with the most (or hostess with the mostest). ;~) And how much more special would stay-at-home movie nights be for enjoying an assortment of different snacks and candies when served to oneself &/or family members on this delightful serving ware!
A stunning, flower-detailed tableware set such as this (which is “eye candy” in and of itself) will enticingly, as well as gorgeously and tastefully, display and enhance all sorts of mouth watering delicacies in its various divided compartments, ranging from condiments, dressings, relishes, sauces, snacks, chips and dips, cold cuts, finger foods, appetizers, cocktail tidbits, hors d’ oeuvres, fondues, soups, veggies, crudites, fruits, desserts, candies, etc. - even Chinese restaurant takeout so that everyone can sample a little bit of this, a little bit of that... :~)
Another clever and unique use for this compartmentalized set would be as a tabletop organizer to hold and store crafting supplies while working on various arts, crafts or sewing projects (e.g. beads, crystals, sequins, buttons, etc.).
