The Wedding Gift – 1947. Painting – oil and gold leaf on canvas board 12" x 16".

Bavarian hand painted china with Cambridge Candlelight crystal stemware and a brocade tablecloth with white Glads were some of my mother's favorite things. Despite sharing the household with 7 kids, seven of eight water goblets survived for 67 years. They were used every Thanksgiving and at Christmas dinner for 30 years.
