Silver Sunday again! I am a little behind on showing my finds, so here are some silver related recent finds.
Silverplate wire heart shaped bowl. I am using it to hold some vintage lace and ribbon.
Cute little French covered dish.
Closeup of the engraving on the lid. It is a bit hard to read, but I think it says:
Le Manoir aux Alouettes
A handful of silver serving pieces.
Including a fish server knife and fork set, and a German child's spoon.
The child spoon is a mid-century modern version of Jack and Jill.
The fish servers are monogrammed LE.
Closeup of the pretty engraving on the fish set. I found these on a great Etsy Store.
And what might be my favorite find, a pair of Sacramental Service plates, probably used by priests for visiting the sick. They are each monogrammed with IHS (Christogram for the Greek spelling of Jesus).
The backs are marked Sick Call Outfit Special Pat'd April '97 (that would be 1897!)
This was probably part of a set that a priest would carry with him. I love finding interesting religious items like this, but rarely come across them.
