Hope to get rid of these dishes

This is the set of dishes laid out
I made a 2 tiered serving dish out of the plates. The bowl could be set on top or used separately. The cup and saucer on a metal rod is an outside bird feeder.

This was a new set of dishes that were never used. They were my grandparents and I've been trying to sell them since 2001 at various sales. I decided to repurpose them and now maybe I can sell them. The bowl could sit on top of the 2 plate server but I thought it would be harder to store in a cabinet and harder to wash in the sink if it was too tall. So now someone will have a choice how to use them.  I used candle holders and glued them onto the dishes. The birdfeeder has the little thingy glued on the bottom and a threaded rod was screwed on.

Great repurpose!
