My Mother's China

This is my mother's china.  She was very proud of this set. 
They are Noritake Floral Rose Ridgewood # 5201 made in Japan, 1951 - 1961.
My mother collected these dishes one at a time at a local grocery store

She used them for special holiday family dinners.

Several pieces have been chipped and cracked over the years and can no longer be used, 
but I still have a complete service for eight.   

Every time I walk by my new Campbellsville Handmade Cherry corner hutch,
I think of my mother and her pride of her Campbellsville cherry dining room furniture and this pretty china. 
She would have been very pleased to see them displayed in my dining room.
