I just added a new board to Pinterest.com called Retro Tulips . Tulips and Dutch related symbols such as wind mills, wooden shoes, boys and girls in traditional dress etc. were popular additions to the kitchenwares and textiles of the colorful eras, especially in the 1940s.For more information on this topic be sure to see "Dutch Treat" in my book "Hot Kitchen and Home Collectibles of the 30s, 40s, 50s".
