The deadline to enter my 150 follower giveaway is 10pm Central tonight.  If you haven't entered yet, click here to do so!

I picked up this enamelware platter which measures 12.25 inches across yesterday.  It is in beautiful condition, and I love the graphic.  There is no marking on the back, but I believe that it is Cathrineholm in the Lotus pattern.  Can anybody confirm this?  Also, can anybody tell me what this color is called?  It's a mix between mustard yellow and avocado green, at least to my eyes.  Finally, does anybody know an approximate value for this piece?  I can do pretty well with values of Pyrex, but this is out of my area.  Thanks for the help!  Oh, and my purchase price? 99 cents.

Have a great Friday!


  1. Yes, looks like you found a Cathrineholm Lotus platter. They are not usually marked, other than the iconic design. I recently sold a Lotus fondue set for $125, so they are worth quite a bit- yours is probably in the $50-$75 range.

  2. Wow! I would've picked that up anyway since I love the color and design, but now I'll REALLY be on the lookout. I'd heard of Catherineholm before but didn't realize it was so valuable. Congrats on a beautiful find!

  3. Yes it definitely is. Catherineholm pieces had a paper sticker rather than a marking.
