Rosalynn by International China- need information

Post by Kat » Tue, 05 Oct 2004 05:06:53



I don't think this is really "antique" but I hope someone can shed
some light on this.   I have a set of Rosalynn by International China.
  here's a cereal bowl
<http://pages.tias.com/cgi-bin/google.fcgi/itemKey=1922234671?itemKey=...>
 I have the set with the inner green band.   My dear daughter has
broken about 4 of the bowls, if not more :-(( and I want to buy more,
but it's not around much.  It's a pretty pattern, IMO, but I just
can't find it for a price I'm willing to pay since I fear she'll keep
breaking the the cereal bowls!   (my ds who is 3 doesnt' break them-
why does my 9 yo???)    There's a ton of some patterns like Marmalade
and Heartland- and Rosalynn looks like it was in the same sort of era
as those others so I'm confused....

so- if anyone knows when this pattern was made, if it was made for a
very short time or marketed only in a small part of the country or
anything, I would appreciate knowing more about it.   Or, if you have
any to sell...  :-)  I'm hoping my mom or someone buys me some for
christmas or something....  :-P

If you can't find it anywhere, Replacements Unlimited will probably have it.
(It might be Replacements limited, I cannot remember which)

thanks Kris.  I wonder if it was sold in some parts of the country and
not others?  I bought it in Colorado but haven't seen it anywhere in
any thrift stores or garage sales- since the one where I bought it,
that is.    by "discount stores", what do you mean?  Sears, target?  
 did you know this information or did you find it somewhere in
response to my query?

the cheapest I've seen the cereal bowls that I need are $10/each and I
dont' want to pay that much....  :-/  I keep wondering why it's not
around but "marmalade", which I find awful, is around all over the
place- and "heartland", which isn't nearly so bad....

    It's a brand (and type of china) commonly sold in low-level
    mass marketers.   I don't know about Sears, but Wal-Mart
    and K-Mart would be the most likely.

    I don't know where (or when) you bought it, but since it hasn't
    been made for 13 years, you're not going to find it anywhere
    except as used.  Generally, this type of china breaks quite
    easily, as you're discovering, and since replacements aren't
    worth the price, people just buy a new set.

    Your Goodwill and Salvation Army stores should be the
    best source for it.   You might also keep an eye on eBay;
    someone might put some up.

    For out-of-stock, $10 per bowl is really quite cheap.  It's
    not cost-effective to sell them for any less than that, and
    you can buy a whole new set of "something just as good"
    at a discount store for about $30-$50.

I second Kris, I had a replacement service for several years.  Dishes
from discount stores weren't worth stocking.  I'd replace the whole set
rather than individual pieces.  Wal-Mart has open stock in several
patterns that are $1.50 each for place setting pieces and $3 each for
serving pieces.  Target has dishes comperable to yours, as does Bed Bath
& Beyond.  Unless there is sentimental value, my gut feeling is that you
are going to spend nearly as much as what a new set would cost to
replace the bowls, or spend countless hours tracking them down.

Most of the dishes I use cost more than $10 a piece new.  As the
antiques dishes go when I come across my patterns for less than $15 per
piece I buy what I need to fill in and what I expect to have for
breakage within the next several years.  My serious PITA for replacing
pattern is 3 years shy of officially being antique and the harder to
find replacements for at any price than dishes I use that are 150 years
old.  Even yabe only yields 10-15 pieces a year.
