My grandmother Marjory told me she didnít like peaches. I was amazed, and on further inquiry, learned that she had only eaten canned peaches. I bought some fresh ones, peeled and sliced them, and served them in the faceted star dishes with a sprinkling of sugar and cream on the side. She and my grandfather loved the peaches; they were a revelation, as you can imagine, canned peaches being nothing like fresh. We had them the rest of the summer, always in those dishes. Holding that bowl, the memories came flooding back. I hope the others are in another box!
