I posted a couple months ago about altering vintage dishes and a dilemma I had. I’d purchased new dishes for the store without looking at the maker’s mark on the back because they were so pretty. When I checked the mark once I came home, I noticed they were 121 years old and I had almost the entire set of dishes.
So I didn’t alter it right away. I unpacked them and put them in my cabinet and I’ve left them there while I figure out what to do with them. Keeping them was my first choice but most of my friends didn’t want to touch them out of fear of breaking something and I have a thing against keeping dishes I don’t actually use.
I briefly thought about putting them piecemeal on ebay, but that didn’t seem right either.
I ended up contacting the Warrensburg Historical Society and someone came over to look at the dishes. My dishes will now be a donation to the historical society and they will be on display for a while. The Historical Society may sell them at a later date which is totally okay with me. I’m happy with whatever they decide to do with the dishes.
