My oldest daughter, who lives with me, loves to celebrate birthdays. This is what I found on my kitchen table on Tuesday morning.
I collect items from an old Cincinnati dairy, French-Bauer – I remember watching their horse-drawn milk wagons when I was a child. At one time, they also had a restaurant in downtown Cincinnati. This is a tiny 4-1/2 inch ice-cream spoon from that restaurant and the name engraved on the back, “French Bros.-Bauer Co.” dates it to the mid-1920s before the name change. This is a nice addition to the china pieces I already have. My daughter definitely knows what I like.
