In the early 1900's, there were two sisters by the name of Sandwich who lived in Corsicana, Texas. They were well-known for their beautiful hand-painted china. During World War One, soldiers passing through Corsicana on the train would buy the lovely china that was so expertly painted and then ship it back home to their mothers or sweethearts. I am fortunate to be able to own some of these wonderful pieces of china. The blue forget-me-not large cake plate and smaller dessert plates along with the blue candlesticks covered in pink roses are the pieces I own that were painted by these sisters. I actually have six of the dessert plates. I really love these pieces because I know they were lovingly painted and then owned and loved by someone before me. They have a history with others and this makes them even more special to me. I also wanted to show you one of my favorite pin cushions and a prized dresser set. The dresser set consists of a tray, hair receiver, ring box, and perfume bottle. These sit on my vanity, and they are some of my favorite hand-painted china pieces. Thank you so much for taking the time to come by today. I am always happy to be able to share some of my favorite things with you. I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving and are looking forward to Christmas as we celebrate the birth of Jesus. Have a wonderful weekend, dear friends.
