Silver Sunday Monogram Flatware

Silver Sunday again!
It is probably fairly obvious that I love silver serving pieces.
Especially monogrammed silver serving pieces.

I found this set of flatware with an SM monogram at an estate sale.
It happens to be my mom's initials.

Due to some unfortunate circumstances, we have no family silver heirlooms, so this is kind of an instant heirloom.
There are dinner knives,
forks, teaspoons (sitting in buffet flatware caddies).
Large serving spoons, soup spoons, a ladle and a sugar spoon.
I have many mismatched monogram pieces, but this is my first matching set. I love it.

This is another interesting silver piece - it is a glass bowl frog that sits inside the silver piece.

I will be filling it up with garden flowers.

  7. These are gorgeous silver pieces. I love the silver "frog". (guess that is still what you call it even when it is silver).

  8. Wow! Pretty good find I'd say...not to often one can find anything monogrammed that matches folks in the family and to find your mom's monogram, too. How perfect! Also, love the frog. : )

  10. Glad you found this beautiful silver. I like the unusual pattern, and like you, love the old monograms. I'll be eager to see the last piece filled with blooms. The glass/silver frog is not somthing I've seen.
    I hope to have a Silver Sunday post ready for this coming Sunday. I was out of town and miss out, but was happy to see that with the celebration she is extending the opportunity to list a post for this month. Hope to see you. ~ Sarah
