The soup bowl is from the 19th century aesthetic period manufactured by W. H. Grindley and Co., England. I have several pieces of this pattern with its charming birds and asymmetrical Oriental banding. The 'manly' soup spoon and butter knife are from my great-grandmother's monogrammed silver. The bread plate at this setting is 19th Century, 'Stag' pattern from C.S. & Sons, England.
For an under plate, I have used a pair of 20th century brown transferware plates in the Tonquin pattern by Alfred Meakin, England.
The glassware is Fostoria, and the bread plate in the foreground is 19th century, in the 'Perak' pattern.
The two larger candle holders were made by Bob's grandfather from apple wood from his backyard. The smaller holder was made by my father from one of the original walnut trees planted by pioneers in the small town we grew up in.
