Spaulding Melamine Set - 49 Pieces
Here it is - the Spaulding dinnerware set. It's not complete - it's 49 pieces out of 55 - but most of it has never been used and it's still in its original box. The price tag says $66.40. That was 1960 or before. With inflation, today that's a $489 melamine dinnerware set. Lawdy.
For the record, it's missing everything on the right side of the inventory list except that it still has the one large server platter. The rest are crazy 8s - dinner plates, soup/cereal bowls, dessert bowls, bread and butter plates, cups, and saucers.
Made in the USA - "Chicago 18, Illinois"
