See that? That is a thorn in my side. If you recall I've shown you things in this collection before. (See here, here and here if your memory needs jogging). This is from the "Taste Setter Collection". A company who apparently did not care much about branding because some of these items have their name on them and some are completely devoid of any information at all.

Prepare yourself, from this point on this post is going to be a rant/whining.

If you were to show this tray to ten different people they would describe it ten different ways. Which is where my problem begins. How do you search for an item that has no name on it, no maker's mark and you have no idea what the collection encompasses? Try searching for that on ebay or etsy. It could be "winking face tray" to one person and "graphic tray" to another or "sun plate" to someone else.

There could be bowls, creamers, salad plates, ash trays...I have no idea. It's so unbelievably frustrating and to top it off I am completely obsessed with it. I've considered it as a tattoo. I've scoured the internet for items into the wee hours only to find my own blog posts on it. Earlier this week I checked a well known website that specializes in replacement china and they were using MY pictures for it. More than a little frustrating.

It is the Kirk to my Khan; It tasks me, It tasks me, and I shall have it! I'll chase it round the Moons of Nibia, and round the Antares Maelstrom, and round perdition's flames before I give it up!

So I ask again, if you ever see it, buy it. I'll reimburse you and give you a finder's fee. You'd be making this cranky lady very, very happy.
