Unique Silver - Silver Sunday

Lately I have come across some super fun blogs and Gypsy Fish Journal has a great way to spend some time on Sundays with Silver Sunday!

I had thought the 'dish' in the following photo was a candy dish, but after seeing one of the Silver posters, Confessions of a Plate Addict,   I think it might be a calling card tray!

In any case, it was not taken care of very well.  It looks like something very heavy was laid on top of it, crushing the center part of the bowl around the stem.  For a yard sale find the imperfection did not bother me!



The 'silver' in the next photo looks to be a pair of scissors, but after much research, appears to be a grape cutter or grape scissor!  I found it in the Florida Keys at a darling gift shop in the Marathon Airport about 15 years ago.  It is not sterling, I don't even think it is silver, as it is unmarked and does not seem to tarnish.  I do love the intricate detail on it!


Have a Happy Sunday!

  5. Hi Blanche, thank you so much for visiting my blog and for the kind words about my new kitty! :) What cool finds, very interesting to find out that there is such thing as grape scissors! :) And I love the thought of having a calling card holder, makes me think of an elegant lady from the 1800s :) ~Lauren
