Memories: family dinnerware

When Grandma Carter moved into a nursing home, I took custody of her dinnerware.

I didn’t even unpack this china until I had Aunt Esther’s china cabinet, so in four years, I think I’ve used it once.


Two weeks ago I took custody of my mother’s dinnerware.  We rarely used this, but I’m determined to put it on the table for certain occasions.

Mom’s collection includes service for nine: dinner plates, salad plates, dessert plates, coupe bowls, three serving dishes and a large serving plate, cream and sugar dishes, and cups & saucers.  Also in the box were four painted china demitasse cups and saucers, and some random serving dishes. And six salt cellars.
