A plate, a box and a teapot set

Here are some of my latest finds. A ceramic plate trimmed in 22 karat gold, that says "I Knew You Were Coming So I Baked a Cake." Ahhh, simpler times!  Such hospitality has gone out of style, unfortunately. The plate was filthy when I got it and I had to scrub it like there was no tomorrow in order to remove some sort of glue-like gunk, which faded a bit of the gold. Such are the hazards of the junk hobby.
 A ceramic atomic design box. Reminds me of Franciscan starburst china. I survived a bidding war and emerged with this at the auction a few days ago. To the victor go the spoils!
 This is a cute reproduction teapot and mug set.
