Looking for old pieces like these is one of my favorite lunch time activities. In the past couple of weeks I have really hit the "junkin" jackpot.
I pictured this silver drink server on my last week's post. I found it at a thrift store for $15.00. It was one of those pieces that I just had to have. I love the decorative metal work and the engraved "G" in the center. It sits atop an old beveled, silver edged mirror that I found this week at an antique mall for $4.00. One of my vintage valentines is displayed in a little silver cup that is engraved with a name and a birthdate.
On the other side of the buffet is a silver water pitcher holding red and white roses (the roses are made of wood. I found the bunch "as is" at a thrift store this week for $2.00). Another small silver cup displays another of my valentines. The mirror these pieces are on was purchased at the same antique booth as the other mirror for $3.50.
In the middle of the display is an old "fresherator" jar holding several mismatched pieces of silverware. The ironstone bowl was a thrift store find for $2.50.
The ironstone platters behind the silver were also thrift store finds. I love the contrast between the tarnished silver and the glazed, creamy finish of the ironstone.
Thanks for visiting. I'm posting today to the very popular Silver Sunday party hosted by Beth @ Gypsy Fish. Each week I am continually amazed at all the beautiful silver pieces that are being shared. Please link over to Gypsy Fish and check them out.
Have a wonderful Sunday.
