Sugar, creamer and cookie plate were painted by my grandmother, Anna Roney, in 1915, at about age 21. She grew up on a farm in Knox, Indiana, and worked as a secretary. At that time, painting china was a popular hobby for young women, which she apparently pursued for about a year.
Recipe: Half a gallon of tea. Two sticks of cinnamon, broken. A teaspoon of whole cloves. Six ounces of frozen orange juice concentrate.
