The Abbot Circle 1925 Qntiques As the curtain slowly rose we saw before us Mrs. Lydia Sprowls and Amelie Boyden busily engaged in the difficult task of Htidyin' up the parlor" after their mother's funeral. Funerals do so upset a house you know! Amelie took advantage of this opportunity to inform her sister that she had decided to live in the village where she was the schoolteacher. In spite of tearful entreaties and reproachful remonstrances, she stood firm in her decision. During their cleaning they came across an old teapot which had served as the family bank for as long as they could remember. Suddenly Lydia had a brilliant inspiration. Claire Van Ness, a collector of antiques who was staying in the village, was expected to call for some fresh eggs. Perhaps she might give a lot of money for the teapot. Amelie said that she would never sell anything that recalled such tender remembrances of her mother to a person who would have no sentiment whatsoever for it, but Lydia insisted that the teapot was hers to do what she pleased with. A furious honking of an automobile horn was heard in the yard and their argument was interrupted. Soon Miss Van Ness entered. Lydia eagerly brought forth the teapot and almost quivering with excitement showed it to her. She examined it carefully and then replied that it was imitation, probably made in Connecticut a few years ago. Lydia was heart-broken, and left the room. While she was gone, Miss Van Ness notices a bit of old tapestry that Amelie is holding. Amelie tells her that it has been in the family for a long time. Miss Van Ness became very much excited and offered unbelievable sums, but Amelie would not part with it on account of the precious associations it had. Miss Van Ness said she must hurry, so Lydia went to get the eggs. Smiling patronizingly at Amelie, shesaid she would give her sister five dollars for the old teapot because she had been so disappointed to find it worthless. Amelie went for some paper to wrap it up in. Miss Van Ness advanced to the front of the stage and holding the teapot before her, and gazing at it with a triumphant glint in her eyes, murmured, "Genuine Holland Delft. Two hundred years old! Mmm, it's a good bargain!" 65
