Treasure hunt weekend roundup

There were several very good estate sales this weekend. Here are some of my new treasures...
including an aluminum bamboo motif serving tray, silverplate bread basket and a silent butler...
Some small silver dessert plates with a K monogram on them. A beautifully detailed silverplate trivet with a B monogram.

A couple of mini iron cauldrons.
And this might be my favorite. It is a Bavarian Wedding Cup. The lady turned upside down reveals a cup, and the small bucket she is holding swivels, to form a smaller cup. The bride and groom are supposed to drink from both cups at the same time. It is a German tradition that dates back to the 1400's.
