sos !!! valencia dishes or shards needed

flagtruckSeptember 6, 2008

Hi everyone...I need help, I used these shards on the gourd and on the pot I am currently working on. I intended to do two matching pots, but now it looks doubtful that I will have enough of these to finish the first pot.

Please will everyone check your stash and see if you might have some more of them that you could part with? I will buy them from you and pay the postage to get them to me. The dinnerware is called VALENCIA and I don't know the manufacturer. I originally got mine from a lady that sells on Ebay, but she has no more. I would be happy to just get the plates or cups as I can definitely do the cutting.

Thank all of you in advance. You will really get me out of a jam..

I don't have any of those at the moment; however, I found one listing on Etsy from CoCoMo Mosaics. I have purchased from her before. You could email her to see if she has more in stock; she often has large amounts of tiles.

I've got 2 dessert plates you're welcome to....only problem is I'm not 100% sure they are the same. Pattern looks identical, made by Gibson, but the bottom stamp doesn't give the pattern name. These are it, aren't they??

Quit worrying, my friend. I have three dinner plates, 5 salad plates and 2 saucers that I'm sure are the same. I'll trade you for the grout you sent me. I'll nip them across once or twice and put them in a box to you this week. You don't need to buy any at all if this'd be enough.

You guys are such wonderful friends. Thank you Daisyme and Pat...I am going to be set to finish. I finished the first pot by the skin of my nippers, ready for grout when the thinset dries. I will look forward to my boxes and put the other on the back burner for a week.
Grouted today, pics tomorrow...Thank you so very much...
