294|365 Adorable Bluebell (10/25/11)

Last week my brother-in-law gave us some pieces of a Noritake Bluebell pattern 5558 that he said were family heirlooms. My mother-in-law’s brother sent this to her as a wedding gift in 1954 from Guam, where he was stationed.  Originally the set included a large bowl with a lid like a casserole dish and many, many pieces but over the years and moves only the equivalent of a tea set remains.  According to a website where you can purchase replacements, the pattern was made from 1954-1971.

The teapot is quite adorable so I displayed it on our kitchen counter.  Both my son and daughter noticed it immediately when they came over and commented on how cute it is.

This evening, I decided to use the teapot, cups and saucer.  My daugther poured the coffee then we settled down with our coffee & cookie dough to watch Dexter.
