The White Elephant Sale, I found my ultimate set of silverware!
I have never seen anything like it!
The knife is very heavy and substantial.
The dinner fork has a crest.
The soup spoon has a crown.
The salad fork has a fleur de lys.
And the teaspoon has a bird over a shell.
The set is comprised of 8 - 5 piece place settings.
It is marked Sheffield, England.
I'm still swooning over this find!!
Have you ever seen anything like this?
I have seen a set of silver plate at Pottery Barn that duplicates a different pattern of hotel silver on each utensil, but this set is just amazing. I can't believe someone just donated it. I wish I knew the story/history.
