No thrill

The girl doesn't look too thrilled about the greens, though.

Pouty

That expression tells me she does not like her veggies! Looks like me when I was that age (the pout and dislike of veggies that is).

Beans

The look on the little girls face almost seems to say that even dessert is not worth eating all the yucky beans.

Incentive

With that many desserts in close proximity, I'd have eaten my vitamins too.

Period table setting

We collected Depression Glass over the years, and there is quite a bit of it here - grill plates (divided), serving platters (divided as well), footed sherbet or dessert bowls. These came in numerous colors and patterns, often as premiums for buying laundry soap. There is also a service of yellow-Bakelite handled flatware. Dishware is all gone now, but we are still using the flatware.
