Uppermost in the prospective bride's mind is the choice of China, silver and crystal, which . will probably set her family's , table from Wedding Day on through many years. The couple should combine efforts to select these important items, but traditionally the bride takes the initiative. Perhaps the most noticed, most used of all the finer wedding gifts will be the China. It will set the color key for every important ;• dinner'event. ., Silver and crystal will frame the '.lovely scone so. if neither of the 'three have been previously chosen, the first step is to select the , China. The term "China" refers mainly to American vitrified ware, a development from porcelain wares , ns produced in Europe. Both arc vitrified, which, means they are fired many times ''t«_a«liievc no'n- porosity. China combines white- 'jjoss'translticoncy and durability. Porcelain is similar in .type to China, but 'lacks China's tensile 'strength. It takes on the hue of glass with brittJcnRss. The firing . jHu'thod is the reverse of American -Chir.a and is produced chiefly in :Kuropo and is imported. Kent China is produced in Eng, land aimost exclusively. Its nnme is derived from the • use of bone ash as an added flux in the clay mix: Belleek is an Irish porcelain, very light and thin with a. luster glaze and mother-of-pearl effect. '.It is extremely fragile. To SK-iei'.l good China, hold the place to the light and see if the light comes through. It should. It Is a point of distinction. Hold a China dinner plate on your fingertips, then tap it with a 'pencil. It should ring like crystal with a high, clear echoing tone. The gl.iste should havo> no pits, bubbles or thickened, area."?. Whatever thi; colors in the decoration, they should be cvi-n, r.i-'vrr streaky or mottled, Next iifi the cup by its handle and be sure it 'eels comfortable and well balanced. Imagine the handle in a man's grip, and assure yourself that a man will find it easy and pleasant to hold. Which ever pattern suits you, see a full place .setting and several serving pieces, including contemplated silver and crystal and imagine it in your home. The pattern that seems most "at home" in your eyes, is likely the pattern you will most enjoy. General trends in this nrca toward the standard shaped plate. r SAVE | UP TO | $1,000.00 OX A NEW 1956 DODGE instead of the coupe type. Th« coupe is a contemporary design, a smooth arc or curve from edge to edge. • The plainer' 1 China, 'pattern's seem to be more popular. They include the soft pastels in the plate decorations that will lend to more varied table setting*. The popular choice in crystal ii in the heavier types that include the plain platinum rims or the cut glass types. Crystal and silver should carry out the China de-sign theme, being careful not to mix such extremes as a wheat type design with a floral pattern. ; It .is considered in better taste to ;have one rather plain choice of pattern in one of the three, if the other two are very ornate. But, all three should be selected by the individual for their appeal to the user, with timeless good taste as the objective.
