Today, I want to show you another treasure that my mother left me. There are no markings on the back of this plate. I remember that Mama used it to serve cookies for company.
When I was about five years old, my mother placed some cookies on this plate, and allowed me to take it into the living room where some special ladies were visiting. She was going to follow with coffee.
I was so proud that she entrusted me with this task that I shook a bit. The plate tipped, and all the cookies began to slide off! I did exactly as I had been taught. Mama stepped around the corner of the room to see her daughter carefully picking up the cookies one by one and blowing off first the tops and then--because this was Special Company--the bottoms, before I placed each one back on the plate!
I keep this plate in my china cabinet on display. I don't think I've ever used it. And it seems that as time passes, I'm less reluctant to put it to any functional use; I prefer its aesthetic purpose.
