Silver Sunday Recent Silver Finds

Silver Sunday again - my favorite! These are silver items I have acquired since last Silver Sunday.
First up is this tiny little box with tiny little tongs. I think it is a pill box, but not sure.
I'm also not sure who this little figure is supposed to be.
There is a slot for the tongs behind the little figure, and a little box with a lid.
I put a quarter in the tongs so you can see how small it is.

This is one of my favorite finds...I love silver that has a gothic feel to it.
This is a shot glass from Reed & Barton.
It has double devil-ish faces as the base.

Little one handled serving dish. In the center is an etched swan scene.

A peacock expandable trivet!
I love finding unexpected and unusual peacock items. I found this at an estate sale.

And last is this beautiful monogrammed ladle. It is Wildwood, 1908, pattern by Reliance Plate. I love this pattern.

  6. Your finds are absolutely delicious! I think the tiny box with tongs may have been used to serve the tiny artificial sweetner tablets that were used before Equal...
