GIVEAWAY!!! Vintage Tomato Server

Welcome to my first giveaway! I am offering this Vintage Sheffield England Silverplate Tomato Server.
I love round servers. The Victorians used these round servers in different sizes, for tomatoes, cucumbers, nuts, bonbons, buckwheat, waffles and more! They had a specific utensil for everything.
This one is about 8 1/4" long, and would traditionally be used for tomatoes, but hey, use it for whatever you want!
To enter, just leave a comment. For an extra chance to win, become a follower (or if you are already are a follower).
I will randomly draw the winner on Saturday 2/6/10.

This giveaway is only available to ship within the US - sorry everyone else!!!

  15. I have a bit of weakness for unusual or 'specialty' silverware and utensils. It's nothing formal, but I just happen to love certain little things I use in my kitchen. This would be an awesome addition to my informal collection! :)

  17. Oh, me! Me! Me! Please draw ME!!! I'm a follower too. ;-)

    I did not KNOW they were called tomato servers. That one is just gorgeous!!!!

    May we be "covetous" and ask if the vintage towel is going WITH the server???

    No - - - I thought we shouldn't ask that.

    I'd say this is a pretty fabulous FIRST give away!
