Antique Reed not sure if that is tarnish or just crime/dust. I have it shown in one of the pics with a covered sugar bowl that is likely soldered silver also. You could leave the lid open and use as a charming vase on a nightstand! 4/13scsr
Vintage silverplate sugar bowl. Incised mark on bottom looks like 'Kummelbucherof', or could be 'Kammelbucherof'. The 'u' or 'a' has 2 dots over it. No other markings on it. I believe this item is 'soldiered silver'; it is a very thick and heavy piece. The rim of bowl is slightly irregular which makes it hard to get the lid off and it has some wear/age in and out of bowl. But, that is part of its charm and is likely an antique once used in a hotel, train or ship. It stands 4.25 tall x 5.25 wide not counting handles. I have it shown next to a soldiered silver creamer that it could work well with that even though they are from different makers and the creamer has small band with a pattern on it. 4/13est#
Franklin Mint 12 Days Of Christmas Sterling Spoon Set
This is a sterling silver spoon set manufactured by the Franklin Mint. I believe it was manufactured in 1972. The pattern is called 12 Days of Christmas, and as the name denotes, there are 12 spoons, one for each day of Christmas, as stated in the song of the same name. All but one of the spoons are in excellent, used condition. One of them has a spot in the bowl of the spoon. I made sure to take a picture for you to see. Each spoon contains 29.5 grams of sterling silver, which is 354 grams, total weight. That is equal to 11.42 ounces. If you multiply that by 0.925 (purity of sterling) you get 10.85 ounces of pure silver. At today's prices (S30 per ounce), it is worth $316.80 in just melt value. I am attaching pictures. If you have questions, please e-mail. Thanks. Lurleen
