~Silver Movers and Shakers~

It is week four of Gypsy Fish's Silver Sunday Soiree.
Below is a portion of my collection of
silverplate serving pieces,
 which includes an entree fork,  master butter knife,
 berry spoon and strawberry fork.

Details are most impressive!

Below ~ a selection of
 sterling lid crystal salt shakers and sugar pourer.
The lids generally have beautiful detail.

Often, sterling lids are misshapen from use and their
propensity for malformation due to the softness of sterling.

Closer images show the detail of the lids.
Especially enchanting ~ star shaped perforations.

Another favorite silver detail is seen on these
silverplate baby utensils
~stars on the handles along with endearing "Baby" ~.
