Treasure Chest Thursday: Wolfe Family China

Not too long ago, I was contacted by a third cousin (and now DNA match) Lynae, who sent me the picture above.  She wrote:  "My grandmother was Annie Carol Wolfe Lichtenstein.  I thought you might like to see some china that I have:

The Wolfes [Abram Cecil Wolfe, my great-great uncle, his wife Ada Edwards Wolfe, and daughters Annie and Irma] had four cups & saucers left. The were given to my daughter, Maura, by Irma May Wolfe Nolte (sister of Annie), because she was the only grandchild with a last name starting with "W". 😉 The mug next to them was Annie's mug. She told us that each member of the family had their own mug to use for eating & drinking."

Thank you, cousin Lynae, for sharing these!

  1. Very heart-warming to see that these china items are still treasured by the family. When do you think they were originally made, approximately?

    1. Marian, I have not heard back on this from Lynae, but I am guessing around 1910. Ada and Abram were married by then - perhaps it is wedding china?
