Silver Sunday, Monogrammed Flatware

During my thrifting/antiquing adventures, I pick up monogrammed flatware here and there. I have amassed quite a collection. Above is my favorite antique bird-topped spooner.
The spoons that hang from it are grapefruit/orange spoons with a pretty monogram.
Collection of serving forks - cold meat serving fork, dessert forks, olive or pickle forks.
Some monogrammed with single letter, some have 3 letter monograms.
This is one of my favorite pieces.
A bread saw, with a pretty pattern, and monogrammed LB.
The engraving runs all the way down the blade.

  1. I love all this flatware but what has really caught my attention is the 'spooner' i've never seen anything quite like it.. in fact even the term is foreign too me.. hahaha.. I wonder if it is just me or if we don't use that term in Australia.. well thanks for the new discovery .. i'm off to research it.. Take care . Julie

  4. I love your flatwear. There is something about having a monogram on silver that makes it so very special!! Your spooner is unique. I just learned about spooners recently after another post I read. Interesting! I love how much we learn on blogs.

  13. Ahhh...you have some pretty pieces! I don't collect the monogrammed silver (but I might start :) but I do collect monogrammed hankies and use them as bread basket liners and napkins. Happy belated Silver Sunday.
