Mother's Day is coming. What do you remember from your mother's or your grandmother's kitchen? Figurines from the "Mother in the Kitchen" series by Enesco are popular collectible items that may look familiar.
The "Mother in the Kitchen" figurines are also known as "Prayer Ladies" because of the prayers and sayings that are printed on their aprons. The figurines are useful kitchen items such as salt and pepper shakers, napkin holders, toothpick holders, spoon rests, tea sets, flower pots and cookie jars. They were made from 1956 until the 1960s.
The little lady pictured here wears an apron that reads "A Mother's Work is Never Done" and carries a scouring pad holder. It sells for $34 in an online shop.
Happy Mother's Day
