More old silver.....

I'm still coming across old silver that belonged to my MIL. I'm not sure about this piece. It was so black when I found it.....and I can't believe I didn't take a pic of that! Anyway, it cleaned up pretty good.....has some scratches and just a couple of "pit" marks.
I have it just sitting in the middle of the dining room table......and it just looks so pretty there.

here you can see a little of the black....and look at the dainty legs on it.

I really do not know if this is sterling or just silver plated. It's a beautiful piece though.

later..........

Lovin it. But you are giving me the heebee jeebbee's here that it's going to scratch you table! ARGHH!!!!

I just had to alugh at this post. I have taken a few yucky looking silver pieces that I didn't think had a chance on earth of coming clean, only to clean them up until they are GORGEOUS, and then realize "why the heck didn't I take a before picture!" SO you are NOT ALONE in doing that my friend.

Just yesterday - I packed up a swap I am in, sealed the box and it's ready to mail, each little treasure inside wrapped individually, only to realize while sitting at dinner last night that I didn't take pictures of ANYTHING. So I had to open the box, unwrap each piece, photograph them all, rewrap each piece and seal up the box once again.

I guess I'm just really having a bad case of CRS of late. Because like my Grandma used to tell me "Karen, you'd forget your head if it wasn't fastened on to ya!" :)

Have a great day! Karen
