~ Silver Sunday ~

Beth, at  The Gypsy Fish, is hosting
 Silver Sunday.
I've joined the list of silver sharing,
with focus this week on Victoriana.
Below is a timeworn napkin ring.
I am especially enamored with the filigree design.

Next, a sugar spoon adds
silver detail  to an
apothecary jar filled with
pearlized, pastel gifts of nature.
Swirly details amid
 pearly seashells.

Juxtaposition of ornate silver and
 delicate shells piques interest.

Another finery of the Victorian era ~
 silverplate egg cup perched upon wishbone.
 Once glistening silver,
now patinaed with the ravages of time,
 still beautiful in form and function.
A gift from a dear friend.

Best wishes to all for a
 glistening new year.
