Here are this week's "Items of the Week" from the A.T. Stewart Exchange in Garden City: The table is set for a casual dinner with good friends and great food! The dinner plates are from Spode - there are 26 pieces for $75, and the beverage glasses are $18 for the set of six. The accent pieces are a mixture of whites and blues with a touch of Waterford crystal. The salt and pepper shakers are Waterford at $21 for the pair. The white, bisque doves from Goebel are $30 for the pair. At each end of the table are blue accents - a small, English tureen for $15 and the Blue Willow jug for $24. The candlesticks are pressed-glass and $6 per pair, and the white china, floral centerpieces at $60 for the pair serve as a backdrop to the "Three Graces" figurine at $54. The table is complete, and all items are available at the time of posting.
