Candlewick was my nana's china, and my mom remembers using it on special occasions. Now I collect it, and use it as my everyday tableware; I find it to be pretty, but not too fussy. It mixes well with my thirft store finds and other pieces I've acquired, while I work on building a collection of my own. And I love the history. It's fun to know that my family ate their special meals on similar plates.
How about you? Do you collect tableware to add to a collection you've inherited?
