I have managed to keep my 6 piece teaset with teapot, milk jug and sugar bowl, which was a wedding present in 1972. not used much these days. I also have 2 ancient pyrex casserole bowls with lids and an even more ancient meat plate circa 1950, I think it must have been part of a set given to my parents for their wedding.

FP you've reminded me, I have a set of small (coffee sized?) silver Apostle spoons, complete with ancient box.
They appeared from nowhere after my mum passed away, I'd never seen them before  :wacko:
They could do with a good polish now, though ::)

I'm not good, I'm not bad - I'm just me, and sometimes I have to apologise for that ;)

One of these..............
SPONG !

Only replied so i could use the word Spong !
One of my favourite words !
Spong
Spong
Spong .

Spong mincers are hard work ! :)

Yup, It's one of those, 8! Spong, from Basildon in Essex!

Mrs Growster used it just today for a Shepherd's Pie!

We lost two of the discs years ago, so it's either fine mince or nothing now...

Hmmm...

Before Mrs Growster and I were married, I lived in a degenerate flat off the Fulham Road, with some fabulous Aussies and just one Emglish friend, who worked for Watneys as an area manager on Schooner Inns.

On occasions these places needed closing down, opening up etc, and when we did all that ( I went with him for endless tinctures on the company), there were so many perks, we wondered what life was like without them!

So, when the flat eventually closed down, because the owner wanted it back, we shared out all sorts of stuff, and I finished up with a great spin-dryer, some plates, a saucepan and forty teaspoons...

Still use the spoons daily, so they're well over forty-eight years old! Great for boiled eggs!

Our kids used to hate going round the "living museums" like Beamish and Ironbridge as we spent the whole time saying "we're still using one like that"

For our babies we used the cradle that was bought for my mum who was born in 1927 - and it's still in the loft in case they want it for our (as yet unborn!) grandchildren....

Ooooh cripes! yes I have a set too and in the ancient box! They were a baptismal gift for my father (1930) I have always known about them. I wonder where I have put them?
