My deceased husband and I were engaged and he was serving our country with the army in Japan. I was living at home and working. One day when I came home from work I could hardly get in the door as there were two big heavy crates blocking the door. On closer inspection the crates were addressed to me from my future husband. A twelve place setting of this china. They are beautiful but I don't have them anymore. A few years ago I divided them into two sets of six so each daughter has a smaller set to remember their Dad by and enough to use if they so desire. We have never seen another set like these and could add to each set if we ever run across this particular set of beautiful china.
