After my mother passed away , my Sister and I went through the things she and my father had collected over the years , kept what we each wanted for remembrance sake and sold the rest. One thing I always knew I wanted was this chocolate set. My mother got it from a family friend who was my grandmothers best friend . My grandmother died when my mother was only six , so this lady was like a Godmother to my mom .
She let my mother choose some things she wanted from her many antiques , she said she wanted my mother to have them before she ( The Godmother ) died.
This was the first thing my mother chose. When I asked her why she chose it , she said she just always thought it was pretty, she didn't know how old it was or if it was worth anything , she just loved it.
I've always loved it because she did.
I always thought it was transfer ware but I'm not sure because there are some subtle differences in the pieces with the same scene on them.
Anyway I decided to show y'all and maybe you could give me your input on them.
The four cups have two different scenes , if you look close you can see the subtle differences.
Aren't the shades of green beautiful ?
The cups and saucers have the same marks on them.
But the chocolate pot and tray are both different.
