Thought I'd show you another surprise we came across while cleaning out this old house.
We knew my MIL had this set. She had brought them back from Italy while they had been stationed there in the military. My husband came many, many, many years after that little trip. He was a late, late, late in life surprise!
They are kinda delicate so we don't use them. They have these little delicate "flowers" on them, if you wanna call them that. They remind me of those dandelions that you pick up and make a wish and blow and all the little white fuzzies float away (then mom comes out fussin' to stop cause it makes them spread and grow more! oops). They have a gold trim and there's one plate that has a little chip on the edge but still all in pretty good shape.
It has a gravy boat too...I've never seen one attached to a saucer but this one is....At first I thought it was just stuck but um, it's not
Here's the stamp on the back...it reads...
I thought i'd add these to some of my dishes I found at an estate sale
I don't know anything about my plates other than I got 4 of them for $15 at an estate sale and my girlfriend thought I was CRAZY! She just don't understand but i'm sure some of you do :) They have Made in Italy stamped on the back but no other markings.
Here's one of my snowmen and tree that I got after Christmas a couple of years ago from Walmart. I think he's very handsome! My son want's to know why he doesn't have a carrot nose or black eyes....I told him
he was a fancy snowman....he seemed to accept that excuse! Whew!
I had to let the baby deer come join us for this setting. He has a momma and daddy that are Christmas decorations. The glasses I got from World Market (during their closeout sale...BOO!) I loved that place.
