Selkie, love your dishes they are so attractive. I'd be glad to serve food from them.

Try Replacements, Ltd in NC. They have a lot of patterns in stock and available, new and used. If you get on their list with your pattern, they will send you a list when they get what you want.

That's where my mom (and I) have gotten our extra pieces. The store is a really cool place to visit if you are in the Raleigh area. It is a dog-friendly store.

I have a set of dishes that was my great grandmother's. Another grandchild got the silver. It has been used twice! The first time, DH cooked Thanksgiving dinner because I was working night shift at the hospital. He served it on the good dishes for just the 2 of us. Then I used it again when the whole family came to my house for the baptism of my first born (1984). It's packed away right now but I hope to get it out one day and display it in the hutch from my grandmother's house.

I use all my dishes, no reason not to. If I was afraid of breaking it, I wouldn't have bought breakable dishes.

I got two juice glasses from my Grandmother's things, I broke the second one last week...they are gone now, but I used them everyday that I had them.

"One day some people came to the master and asked 'How can you be happy in a world of such impermanence, where you cannot protect your loved ones from harm, illness and death?' The master held up a glass and said 'Someone gave me this glass, and I really like this glass. It holds my water admirably and it glistens in the sunlight. I touch it and it rings! One day the wind may blow it off the shelf, or my elbow may knock it from the table. I know this glass is already broken, so I enjoy it incredibly.'"
~~Achaan Chah Subato, Thai meditation master

Thank you for that Bea! I've been searching for years on how to describe life...and death.
