Description

  • Pattern: Pink Rose
  • Made in Japan 
  • Vintage: 1950's- 1960
  • Details:  This lovely dish is in the shape of a leaf with gold accents around the rim.  It features a Pink Rose in the center with dark green leaves, a couple of unopened buds and tiny blue flowers all around.  It could be used as a trinket dish by the front door to collect keys, change, etc.  Or in the bathroom as a soap dish.  However, the most interesting part of this piece is not the beauty of the design or the shape of the dish, it is the fact that it's a collectible vintage advertisement piece!!  Badcock Furniture used different household items to advertise its stores from sewing kits, to a small bronze delivery car, kitchenware, and more.  This dish has the logo that was used until 1960.  In 1960 the logo was changed to: "Badcock Home Furnishing Centers" and that logo was used until 1999 when it changed again, to "Badcock & More".  This trinket dish is stamped on the back as follows:  "Badcock, Furniture Appliances, Styled Right, Built Right, Priced Right, Your Credit is Good.  Badcock will Treat you Right".  Great piece of memorabilia.

The W. S. Badcock Corp. was founded by Henry Stanhope Badcock in Mulberry, Florida in 1904.  In 1920 Henry's son Wogan Stanhope Badcock, Jr bought the store.  They struggled during the great depression but they pressed on through consignment at various stores in the area, route salesmen, and offering credit to customers that could not afford to pay in full.  These sales tactics helped them survive the depression.  In 1966 they were able to expand outside of Florida to Georgia, later to South Carolina, North Carolina, Mississippi, and Tennessee.  In 1999 they updated their corporate image, added "and more" and the logo and stores took on a whole new look and design.  Today, they are in 8 states:  Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Virginia and continue to offer credit to their clients.
