If you love the shabby look, hunt for milk glass from the 1930s and 1940s, or porcelain pieces from the Victorian era. Swedish and Norwegian pieces from the 1950s to 1970s fit perfectly into more modern interiors.

How to Display White Ware 

When styling items on a shelf, consider adding a platter in back to add height to your display.

Use a soft-gray wall as the perfect backdrop to open shelving displays. Stack white dishes and bowls against a bright or dark background. The contrast makes the dishes look like pieces of artwork!

Add crystal and glass to your groupings to add elegance.

Try to feature one special piece, a focal point.

Don’t be afraid of utilitarian items in your display.

Throughout history, white décor has been a mainstay, so building a collection of these versatile vintage pieces is easy.
