Ice Cream in the 1930's

My last trip to India, my mom gave me these gorgeous ice cream cups. They have been in my family since the 1930's. They originally belonged to my mom's grandfather. I absolutely adore them and like displaying them in my China cabinet. The cups are pretty and look as good as new even today. Maybe I should have a dinner party soon ........
Well, that might take a while.....so for now I shall just enjoy some yummy coffee ice cream with chocolate sauce in it :-)

I am joining Cindy's Show and Tell Friday at the lovely blog My Romantic Home

and

Stephanie at Strut- your-stuff Thursday at the fabulous Somewhat Simple

and the Reluctant Entertainer and Mosaic Monday at the Little Red House.

Hi Anu,

I say bring those ice cream cups out and enjoy them every time you have a scoop! I try to keep my favorite things close at hand and put them to good use.

Those are pretty fancy icecream cups. It would have to be premium icecream for sure. Valerie
