Victorian Spooner and More

 These are a few more of my recent finds.  Above is a Victorian Spooner - combination sugar bowl and spoon rack.  It has a great bird finial handle (available here).

 Fabulous Reed & Barton teaspoons, with an N monogram (available here). 

 Another trophy to add to my collection.  This one is a bud vase.

 For a Post Office Marathon in 1935.  First Prize.

 Some really unusual US Navy demitasse spoons.  They have little tiny anchors engraved on the front, and USN engraved on the back.

And a creamer sugar set - monogrammed with A M. 
Some good estate sales coming up this weekend!!  Fingers crossed I will find more good stuff!

Finds, Fairy Tale Book

 A few of my recent finds...

 Set of Rogers forks and knives, it the original box!  Great graphics on the box.

 A couple of unusual serving pieces - a tomato server, and a butter knife. 

 This is engraved on the butter knife.  I haven't figured out what it means yet. 

 Brass Pelican key holder. 

 And a fairy tale pop-up book from 1933. 

 The outside of the book is in terrible condition, but the inside is amazing!.

 The colors are great, the pop-ups very detailed.  Above is Hansel and Gretel. 

 Puss in Boots.

 Chasing a rat.

And Goldilocks.
