There are some things we buy in our life time that last forever. We don't plan this at the time, we just know we need it now. I wonder did Granny know when she put this punch bowl in layaway that generation after generation would use it. She bought it for $29.95 at Jones Hardware Store in The Heights, she put it in layaway and paid a few dollars a week until she had it paid off. It has been used by three generations for weddings, showers and anniversaries. $29.95....Priceless. The platter weights 10 pounds, the punch bowl weights 10 pounds and it comes with 10 glasses.
