This is the last week of Silver Sunday for awhile. You can find the details over at Gypsy Fish….and lots of other interesting silver pieces.. Thanks for hosting, Beth!
This is a heavy silver (stainless steel) bowl from the Hotel Astor in Times Square, NY. Long gone!
It was used to place on the table with chipped ice, filled with celery, carrots, etc. what we call crudite today.
I remember when I was a child it was always placed on the table at restaurants….

The next is the kitchen silverware we used growing up..engraved with a C. My mother saved Betty Crocker coupons and sent away for it. It is Wm Rodgers…Memory pattern. The baby spoon was used by all her grandchildren and great grandchildren. I guess they are over 50 yrs old..
I also use it in this little bowl with grated cheese..
The small ladle in the middle is made in Norway, by TH Marthinsen. I think it was my mom’s too…
This is a sterling silver bud vase from a DZ sorority ball from college. It is engraved..and has a little dent…it has survived many years! :)
Finally, these little “silver” hearts that I use in my tablescapes. I got them in a closeout store that is no longer! They were 3 for 1.00..They are still shiny after 10 years. I have lots of them…Many uses!
Here, have a few..Belgian Truffles…
I would love to hear what your favorite silver polish is! I will tally the results…please mention it in your comment.
Don’t forget Laurie’s Party this week..details on the sidebar…
