#285 Jericho - Jordan Antique Set

Acquired 2001

We found this handmade set in an antique shop near Cannery Row in Monterey, CA, while visiting for our 40th wedding anniversary, November 2001. We wish we could know how old it really is! We do know the markings on the bottom of each piece are yellowed and very informative. The World Young Women's Christian Association Center in Israel, specifically the Jericho - Jordan border area, sponsors this ten-piece set. We have been in this area and can picture in our minds where this set was made. It was from the Quqbat Jaber Refugee Camp. Our purchase price was an amazing $30!
