Fire King

My husband is a collector. I am a trasher. He gathers; I throw away. He stores; I get rid of. Get the picture?

He does have this fabulous collection of Fire King dishes. When he was a young boy his mother had a breakfast set of Fire King. They weren’t that old when she had them. She has since passed away and he ended up with her old Fire King milk pitcher. That one piece led to another which led to another. Soon he had a sizable collection of Fire King pieces. This is a small sampling of his collection.

Our daughter on the east coast found a gorgeous little divided plate to add to his collection. She wrapped it carefully and shipped to us via UPS. When it arrived the little dish was broken. My husband was so upset. He had been so excited.

Now the work on trying to collect the insurance money from UPS begins. Last time this happened it took over a year before we had a check in hand.
