For a modest blue collar family, there were not a lot of luxuries. Grandma's crystal and china, some fine Irish linens, and her silverware. The use of "everyday" silverware suggested that there was another set for special occasions. Indeed there was. Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter were likely the only times you would see this set. (Don't even think dishwasher !!! Each piece was washed individually, rinsed, and hand dried after the meal! Those were the days..Really? ! ?
