Yes, Acme, the Wedgwood is beautiful, in a very Edwardian way. It's a bright green with a molded pattern of grape leaves and fruit -- très, très art nouveau. Here's a link to the relevant page on Green Glaze by Wedgwood

The set comprises a wide, low-sided serving bowl (designated "11-inch salad serving bowl" for $179 on Replacements), an 8-ounce jug, a 24-ounce jug, and ten "6 3/8-inch coupe cereal" bowls. I'll bet there were originally a dozen bowls, but two fell victim to time and circumstance.

Because the decoration is raised, they aren't practical for frequent use; the pattern is not uncommon, and pieces turn up at junque shops with chips and glaze-worn-off white spots. I imagine that my mother-in-law thought the same; hence, they're still with us.
