Do you own any old antique spoons? Well, I became a proud owner of some old family antique spoons this past weekend. My Mom didn’t realize that they were wrapped in some cloth and at the bottom of the plastic tote that I brought home. I had mentioned them to her when I got home and she said that I could have them as long as I took good care of them. Oh ladies, let me just tell you that I love these spoons! I was thrilled to hear that most of them belonged to my great great grandmother. That makes them over 200 years old. Some of them have her name engraved on them, some of them just have her initials and some of them don’t have anything. I took so much time going through these spoons and let me tell you that I have many favorites! Do people even make fancy silverware like this anymore? Some of the detail on these spoons is amazing and I am here to show you them today. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I did. My favorite has to be the spoon with the stars cut out on it. It is just so pretty!! So, are you ready to take a look?
This middle spoon is another favorite of mine. Do you see the scallops on the part that goes into your mouth? Very neat – huh?
I took a couple more pictures of them on my spoon rack. I got some close-ups just so you could see some of the wonderful detail. They are beautiful and definitely great to have and display. I so love having things like this. Pretty neat to know that I have something that was once my great great grandmothers. Something that was touched by her hands and something that belonged to her. Thank you Mom for allowing me to take care of these. I love them and will cherish them!! Enjoy the close-ups and the beautiful detail that is clearly shown with each spoon. For a bigger close-up…..just click on the picture!
Until Next Time……….. Blessings, Lisa
