The scope of the entire set:
A butter dish? with area underneath for ice:
Three salt shakers (because no should ever have to pass the salt):
Close up of the detail on the borders:
My goddaughter's mother's grandmother (follow that one) needed a home for a gigantic set of china and glassware from 1910 and yesterday I drove eight hours round trip to Lake Placid to pick it up.
Fortunately it was beautiful fall weather, her grandmother is a delightful person and also the china is unbelievable.
Unpacking it last night it just seemed to keep coming in a never ending flood of gold embossed rims.
Yes, it's all mine! It just seems to belong in my house, looking so at home on top of the gigantic Stickley table. *dances* Next time dinner at my place will be so fancy!
