My china pattern

This china was given to my mom from a neighbor that she took dinner to every night, and spent many hours sitting and keeping Eileen company, she'd clean some for her too. Before Eileen died many years ago she TOLD mom to take that china out of her house, she wanted mom to have it and not any of her family! (and quite honestly my mom did more for Eileen than any of her family put together)
This is what we ate many holiday meals on and mom gave it to me when they downsized. I was so afraid we might get in a car accident driving it nearly 6 hrs. back to our home, I hauled it back in 2 trips. *I* didn't want anybody to help pack it but myself, and I am thrilled to report nothing was broken! We've moved it 2 additional times and *I* always pack it myself. Nothing broken and the set remains complete.
This is my 12 piece place setting, also included is a medium plate but I wasn't sure how to display it.
This is with the light on above the table.
Up close shot, I love this china pattern.

Without the light on.

Who wants to come for dinner?
