Addy's Ironstone Compote Set ABAC $54
This set is darling! It includes two sets of each of these: ironstone compotes, lavender tumblers, spoons, forks, linen napkins, and napkin rings. It also comes with a copper pitcher and three crocheted doilies. These are very realistic looking and nothing is plastic. I rate these an A+.
This set is amazing! I was blown away by the quality. Each piece is made from glass, heavy metal or ceramic. The bowls have gold leaf on them and a nice crackle finish. The flatware is the same as Kirsten's, but still cute and now my girls have three forks to share between the 6 of them. I can't say enough about how high quality this set is. It doesn't look like it comes with a lot, but each piece is exceptional and they were all marked Pleasant Company on the bottom. THIS is the Pleasant Company I know and love! Get this set while you can, mine arrived in a burgundy box and at AGP they only had them in the older boxes as well. Grade: A+++

These are so much better than I thought they'd be. I love, love, love the cracked finish on the ice cream bowls, the Pleasant Company stamped copper pitcher, the numbers etched into the napkin rings, the tumblers, everything! Such an impressive item.
Seems fitting to do a quick little review of this retired set on Addy's birthday. It is really one of the loveliest of the birthday celebratory sets that AG made. So many charming details on the compote, the copper pitcher, doilies -- it's all adorable and so perfect for Addy's story.
Like all the dish sets, this one requires care when played with and it was not meant for careless little hands.
