I was out Estate Sale-ing
this weekend with Mr. Beaux.
He likes to go with me
sometimes to hang out.
So, we were in this house
where a floral designer
lived and I was upstairs mulling
over some mirrored candle stands
and he texts me from the basement.
He had spotted this silver tea set.
He knew that I had been trying
to find one at a reasonable
price for a long time.
Since Saturday was half off day,
it was quite a bargain.
It's a FB Rogers 1883 Silver-plated
set with all of the markings.
It was probably made sometime after the 1940's.
It's not that the value is that great,
it was the fact that I wanted a silver tea set
for decorative reasons.
I polished it up over the weekend.
I polished while I talked to Mr. Beaux,
I polished while I talked to my middle son,
I polished when my oldest son came to pick up his dog...
I polished while I watched a movie on pay per view.
A lot of polishing to get this shine back!
But look how pretty is is now.
I love all of the detail in the handles
and the top of the lids.
Not bad for $42.00!
I like having pretty silver out
knowing that I didn't pay a fortune for it.
All of my silver,
in fact came from Estate Sales,
usually for just a few dollars a piece.
Here is some of my pieces in the laundry room.
More silver in the open shelving.
Silver used as a towel holder
in the guest room bath.
So get out your silver
and find some fun ways to display it!
