Here is my Show & Tell. I have had this condiment set for a long time.

I think we lived in Va. Bch. VA at the time.. I probably purchased it in Gloucester, VA or perhaps the Richmond, VA area. It is NORITAKE, MADE IN JAPAN, and has the green wreath mark with the M in the middle. It is made before 1941... I can't really find out anything about them. On eBay I espied a creamer with the pattern for $28.00 and a sugar bowl with the pattern for $35.00. I assure you that I paid under $15.00 for this set... that is my limit on salt & pepper sets :-) I think that this set probably had a tray that they nestled in. I just love the pattern

Note to thy self: Stay away from eBay.. you ain't got no more places to put those purty thangs!


  1. These are very pretty! Do you use them?

  2. Thank you, Tammy. I don't use them. I just look at them. They sit in my Amish made curio cabinet... which is almost overflowing with things I like to collect.

  3. Very pretty! Thanks for sharing them with us!

  5. What a charming collection? Are those parakeets? I used to have these birds - they were quite the sweet! Thanks for sharing:)

  6. Thank you, Linda and Grammy. I'm so new it this blogging... hopefully I will get the hang of it.

    Thank you, Janet. Yest, parakeets. I used to have them too and love the little birds.

  7. I love the birds separate, and then cuddling! Sweet! (I agree with the Ebay note to self!!)

  8. Hi there,
    I am new to all this too, but I am having soooooo much fun!

  9. Thank you, Carla. LOL.. my husband spends enough on eBay without me getting into the act :-)

    Thank you, Susie Homemaker. It is fun.
