A Gift from the Heart
My mom gave me a wonderful heirloom for Christmas.
She has treasured this sugar bowl and creamer for as long as I can remember. They originally belonged to my mother's father's parents, my great-grandparents.
She included their history. Click on the letter above, and you can read it, too.
The sugar bowl has beautiful lines.
The marking on the bottom. OAEG ROYAL Austria.
One side of the creamer has the same pattern as the sugar bowl.
The other side of the creamer has a different picture.
The bottom of the creamer shows the original price paid for the pair...$2.50!, from Greer's Bazaar in Alexandria, Indiana.
Thanks, Mom, for my new treasure. I have it displayed where I can see it all day, but keep it safe. It is such a special gift that I am going to share it on several parties over the next few days.
