I have just spent the evening cleaning Mum's display cabinet where she proudly shows her Wedding China.
12 each cups, saucers and teaplates, and 2 sugar and creams.
Miraculously they have survived 61 years and no breakages despite coming out every Xmas for the first 30 years. at least. Their survival intact is not what amazes me, however.
What amazes me that for 1 dozen cups we have 2 sugar bowls, each large enough to hold 2 cupfuls of sugar and at Xmas I can remember 12 adults all but emptying both of them putting sugar in tea, I drink mine with just milk and cannot imagine what it must have tasted like.
