#172 Ivory & Gold Set
Acquired 1997From Applecreek Creations, a mail order catalog, every piece in this 12-piece set is individually hand cast from a sculpted mold and features exquisitely elaborate detail hand painted in ivory and gold. I purchased this set by mail for $49.95 in October 1997. With grandchildren, this is one of the sets that I caught little Jordan picking up piece by piece and throwing it on the floor (she was 25 months old at this time!) and I ran as fast as I could to pick up the remaining scrapes, I was sure to find. With many thanks for blessings untold, only one small tip of a tail was broken - which I could easily glue back!
