Provenance The dish set is about 85 years old in 1999, suggesting that it is circa 1914. Harold Borden Breen (age 95, in Sept. 1999) told museum staff that he remembered his mother purchased this setting of 12 from a store in downtown Owen Sound. A 1926 telephone directory listed the Wm. Breen residence at 547 3rd Ave. East, Owen Sound, Grey County.
Last belonged to his niece, Mildred I. Duncan of Owen Sound.
