More Family Heirlooms

This is another post for family. I've unpacked another box. What an assortment! I took everything out of the box and put the pieces on a bookshelf for photos. Everything will look much nicer when clean. Speak up and let me know what you want.

Shelf 1
Ceramic vases - made by Granny I think. Taller than they appear in the photo. Kelly wants the vases!
3 glasses on the right - very heavy
2 small bowls - they'd hold one scoop of ice cream
large bowl - quite pretty. Fruit designs.


Shelf 2
Set of plates - what are these? They have a small spot to put something like an egg or an oyster. The plates are really nice and in great condition. I stood one up in the background hoping to capture the detail. I also took a closeup (see below).
green bowl on the right - Kelly wants the green bowl!
set of small bowls - they'd hold one scoop of ice cream. Really detailed & ornate.


Here's a closeup of one of the odd plates.


Shelf 3
afghan - fairly small. Throw-size.
6 cups - the handle has a bumpy pattern that's pretty. These must have been part of a punch bowl set.
