In addition to the auction, the ACO runs a tag sale in the next room, and when this Czechoslovakian china went down to half off, the deal was too good to pass up:
20 pieces for $15.00!!!
Helpful hint:Since they must have sat unused for several years, the Czechoslovakian pieces had a slightly musty smell. I just soaked them overnight in a sink of water with a cup of white vinegar and a few tablespoons of baking soda. Now they're as good as new!!
