Description

A wonderful childs table set.  This is the Tumbelina pattern by Westmoreland Company, made in the late 1800's. This set is clear glass.  Childrens sets were made to teach the young ladies skills in playing hostess, and as a homemaker.  The set consists of a sugar dish, creamer, and spooner.  I must admit when I found these pieces, I was not sure what the third piece was.  I have since discovered, it is a spooner.  Spoons were not always set at each place, there may have not been enough to go around.  So spoons were kept in a "spooner" and placed within reach.  This practice was stopped around the turn of the twentieth century. This set also came with a butter dish, I do not have that to include.

These items are in very good condition. There are a lot of lines in the glass.  There are several at the spout of the creamer, one of these I believe is a crack, just 1/8 of an inch long.  On the sugar dish, one point is slightly chipped off.  For their age, and being used by children, they are doing very well!
