A Very Special Episode Of Mr. Modtomic. Need Some Fine China? Status: Come-N-Get-It!
Mother Modtomic gifted this very pretty set of Sone China (Japan 1964) to me a few years ago I think because A. She knew I'd like bamboo motif, and B. They didn't really fit the style of items she sells in her antique mall spaces. Unfortunately I never warmed to the platinum or chrome edge. Too stuffy for my taste, so in the same spirit that the set came into my possession I will be pass these onto one lucky reader!
So here's the deal...you got a nice china cabinet but lack that special set of fine china to display
and only bring out on Thanksgiving and the like? The first person Who Has Purchased From
Me In The Past to leave a comment below Gets This WHOLE Set For Free! The lucky winner
must pick these up here within 3 weeks, I ain't shippin' or holding them for you forever.
It's a very nearly complete set for Eight. It's missing all but one of the saucers and it needs one
more salad plate. The sugar bowl lid is cracked and repaired. There are plenty of serving
pieces and other than the sugar bowl lid, it's in very very nice condition. All of these missing
pieces can be found on eBay or Replacements.com of course.
It's the shiny finish I think that puts me off. It's just too formal for my devil may care style! But
it sure would look sweet in somebody's china cabinet needing a nice matched set of dining and
It's just been collecting dust out in the Garage in a cardboard box and it's just to beautiful to
suffer a fate like that. I could sell it, sure. It'd be free money! But I think I want to reward
someone who not only has relieved me of some other item but is also a loyal reader of the
blog...and is quick! Leave a comment below and we'll work out the details via e-mail later,
hopefully this weekend.
