This display box is for a luncheon set of Anchor Hocking Fire King / Suburbia Golden Shell. The box originally held a 16 piece set. There are 16 pieces though four pieces are not from the original set. Currently one dinner plate is missing ( a salad plate is there instead) and one coffee cup has been substituted with a similar style Fire King cup.

The TOTAL OF 16 PIECES include: (3) Dinner Plates, (1) Salad Plate, (4) Fruit / Dessert Bowls, (4) Saucers, (4) Cups.

____________________________________________________________________

From the original GOLDEN SHELL set that are in MINT CONDITION and appear to be totally unused, there are:

(2) Dinner Plates, (4) Fruit / Dessert Bowls, (4) Saucers, (2) Coffee Cups

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also included in the set in Very Good to Excellent Condition:

(1) Matching Dinner Plate (Marked Fire King and in Very Good Condition), (1) Matching Salad Plate (Mint), (2) Coffee Cups* (1 matching cup in Very Good Condition and one very similar but actually from Fire King's Rachael Pattern--see the star shaped base.

**You may wish to see the Golden Shell Creamer & Sugar also available in this shop and shown in the last photo. The Creamer & Sugar are listed separately.
Hopefully this description is not too confusing. If you have questions please email. The set is in very good to mint condition. This is heavy glassware and the shipping weight will reflect that weight. All of the pieces have the 22K Gold Trim that is in Excellent Condition.

A History Note: Often confused with their Swirl pattern, Anchor Hocking's Shell Pattern carries many similarities. The creamer, sugar, and the coffee cups in this the Shell Pattern carry a more decorative handle (see the little "bump" near the top and bottom of each handle). The 22K gold trim around the milk white pieces led them to be labeled as "Golden Shell". Ironically the Swirl Line also carries milk white dishes with a very similar 22K Gold trim known as the Anniversary line. The easiest way to distinguish the plates and bowls apart is to remember that the Golden Shell carries a finer trim (a thinner gold line) and their edges are scalloped.
