To think that my maternal grandmother used this tea set approximately 100 years ago when she had family dinners or entertained in their home in Minneapolis Minnesota or Des Moines Iowa or Winchester Massachusetts. The tea set was saved and came down to one of her daughters, my Aunt Alice, and is now with my cousin Susan, a granddaughter. Susan has in turn contacted the widow of one of her brothers and this family member would like to have the tea set. I am glad that the tea set will have a new home with a family member. Tastes change with the generations and what is cherished by one generation is often discarded by the next. But this lovely tea set will live on.

This is a heartwarming story!
That’s nice. My wife has her grandmother’s china, and we still use it for special occasions.
They look great.
