I am sharing one of my Grandmother's wedding sets - 1930 as I enjoy the beautiful items recently posted by aimathena. Please excuse my crappy photos. Wanted to show you the different items - 7.5" sandwich or dessert plate, cone shape ice cream sundae glass, champagne and wine glass. They were given to me in 1986 and I packed all very carefully in a 1950's suitcase carry-on size when I moved to FL to live w/my sweetheart Tony. I didn't want them sent ahead like all the rest of my precious stuff..... The TSA woman at the security to Miami asked "is this your wedding present?" I said yes from my grandmother Marian.
The rest of the story....as Paul Harvey would say: Since 1986 I used these for everyday - for parties and I've broke a lot of them - cried but enjoyed. My grandmother was not a CW person. She didn't collect much - she enjoyed what she had but never added to it. She didn't like jewelry or clothes or furniture. I don't know where I got my junking gene from...
