Title: Dessert dishes
Description: Dessert dishes, four pieces. Orchid pink and white with pink band around rim. Depicts The Mother's Grave design: a man and a woman in front of a gravestone, with a small girl holding the woman's hand. 986 is the only mark on the china.
Description: Historical Note: Pease china donated by the great-grandchildren of Governor and Mrs. Elisha Marshall Pease. Marshall Pease Graham recounts that it made the children sad to eat out of the dishes in the Pease home because of the bereaved depicted on the bowls. They hoped they would be broken, but four survived.
