being so old they look so 'current' there is a motto here, if you see something you really want just buy it! As my Dad so often said 'folks it is only money'
This is the side story to go along with the dishes...on the back of each plate, cup and saucer is a blob of flesh colored finger nail polish....during the war with Japan, Aunt Esther was embarrassed about the 'made in Japan' on the bottom of her dishes so she covered the name up! Not that any one in her tiny little town would of ever turned her dishes over! Oh we all laughed about this every time we used them at their house!
Cheers to Happy !!
