Shopping Information: You can add Fancy to your BLTs with this Fostoria Chintz mayonnaise set. Mayonnaise sets were essential to a well run home in the 1930s and glass companies continued to sell them even into the 1950s. I've often wondered how much mayonnaise families ate back then. True they had more kids and sometimes grandparents than our small families today but still. Dave and I go through maybe one small jar of mayonnaise type dressing a year - and a set like this would easily hold most of a jar. Families used these for more than just mayo. Mustard, chutney, relish, even cranberry sauce would be pretty. This mayo set is Fostoria Chintz etched crystal. There are two pieces, the small bowl and a liner plate. Fostoria made a ladle too, it was not etched. This would be a fancy piece in my home. What about yours? Come join us each Thursday evening for the Fancy Friday blog party.
