Now I would like to share with you the history of this item. My American Mother and Father lived a charmed life in Shanghai prior to the bombing. My Dad was a prominent doctor there with an office on the Bund.
They both loved the Chinese people and the culture. Then the Japanese threw them into concentration camps.
Their absolutely wonderful fairytale existence in Shanghai came to an abrupt end. Before that, however, my parents were socialites, entertaining international celebrities.And, of course all their friends in the Shanghai's international settlement. Had many sets of china, but Royal Copenhagen Blue Fluted Lace was her favorite. Loved giving elegant formal sit-down dinner parties. After my father died, my mother married a American diplomat and traveled all over the. These Royal Copenhagen soup bowls went with her to all of the international.
Destinations where my adoptive father was stationed. The two of them were known for. Their elegant dinners surrounded by fascinating people.
It's fair to say this Royal Copenhagen china has traveled the world. Myself, I wish this beautiful china could talk because what great stories it would tell us. My mother bequeathed her special china collection to me.
