Thrifty Thursday Finds - Serving Pieces

I'm participating in Thrifty Thursday with Tales from Bloggeritaville - for the first time! I enjoy sharing the things I've found at estate sales and thrift stores and love seeing what everyone else found!

I stopped by a rare mid-week estate sale this week, and came away with a few things.
I found three beautiful serving pieces, all silverplate.
Here they are when I brought them home. It's hard to tell in this picture, but they were very tarnished (the flash gives them a false shine!)
And here they are after a polish. They are all different patterns and makers, but all have a similar pretty floral detail. They would look great all used together.
I love researching silver patterns. So far I have only identified the spreader - it is a Master Butter Knife, Arbutus Pattern by WM Rogers, 1908 (far right in above picture). Still searching for the serving fork and ladle!

Don't forget to stop by Tales From Bloggeritaville for other Thrifty Finds!
