Friday's Finds!

The photos just don't do this dinnerware justice! 
It's a beautiful creamy yellow color with blue monograms.
At first, I thought it was a simple art deco design but looking at it closer, I noticed it's initials.
It's marked Cavitt-Shaw with a product number and nothing else.  I can't find it anywhere or any information on the timeline of marks.  My thoughts are it's from the 1950's.
I was able to pick up four plates, four bowls, a gravy boat, oval platter, veggie bowl and that strange looking thing that might be a candleholder?  Is it possible they put out cigarettes in something like this?
Monogram:  ARB
I don't think it was for commercial use, it's way too delicate for that.  I'd like to think it was for some special socialite from the area!
Depression glass ashtray.  Has a place for a book of matches and extra cigaretters.
These are oh so retro!  Made of plastic by Homco.
They are both dated from the late 1970's.
Another wall plaque.
Remember orange Formica cabinet tops and dark brown cabinets?
These things are nicely made with some weight to them!
