Here's another view of the table, which includes candlesticks made by a family friend and a footed bowl of decorative balls as the centerpiece.
As you can see, it's difficult to photograph this etched pattern -- I've read that amber glassware is the most difficult to photograph. Next time I'm in Little Rock I'll try to stage it to show the pattern better, as well as more of the different pieces. For this family supper, we used only dinner plates and iced tea glasses, plus Mama's everyday stainless flatware and casual table linens.
In addition to the dinner service for eight, Mama has platters and vegetable bowls, several types of glasses -- parfait, low sherbet, iced tea, water, two types of tumblers -- as well as a footed cream and sugar, footed covered candy dish, two sets of salt and peppers, and a compote.
Here's one more view, after we changed the centerpiece to these stunning daffodils. (These photos were taken in March.)
