Braised stews and pot roasts make us want to break out the sensible stoneware plates and soup bowls, good durable stuff that looks right with a hunk of meat sitting in it. P.O.S.H. Chicago is a perfect place to shop for this kind of dinnerware - restaurant china and place settings built for long, practical use in diners and trattorias. This basic 5-piece place setting is $22. We also like these Bouillon Cups.
P.O.S.H.'s unique approach has them stocking this vintage and contemporary restaurantware at very reasonable prices, but then mixing it up with vintage pieces. It's like an online flea market with only the best hand-picked pieces for sale. See some of our favorite one-of-a-kind items below...
We adore this vintage 35-piece Tea Service with a teal and black design. At $400 it's a little out of our price range, but it's fun to look. We also like this Spice Market Scale, and these Linen Tea Towels.
They also have a great selection of hotel silver and silverplated serving utensils, as well as an extremely charming selection of children's dinnerware.
