For this Silver Sunday post, I'm sharing an arched top antique mirror that I no longer have. In a weak moment I sold it, thinking surely I would find another like it eventually.
Well, in the antique mirror business I have learned you almost NEVER find another exact one, and often when the size, beveled cuts, shape, or other distinguishing features are very unique, you may NEVER ever EVER find one again! They are called antiques for a reason, right?!?
But the above one is precisely what I need now to finish up my stairway grouping of mirrors so I will continue to search, and I've kept this picture to pine over in the meantime. I want the arched top, the original metal fleur clips, the scallop bevels, the clarity.......I just want it all!
This gravy / sauce boat is one of the few pieces of hotel silver that I own. I just love its slightly tarnished look. It has definitely been used LOTS thru the years. I usually keep my handled decorative paper punches in it but thought it might photograph better without them in it!
Any fun-lovin' TX gal needs a PINK and BLUE Silver Cowgirl necklace, right?
I'm going to give this sweet sterling heart charm to my granddaughter.
I have never smoked and thank goodness my husband quit about 4 yrs. ago, but I cannot bring myself to part with this vintage silver lighter. Its soft curves and Deco design are so interesting.
My last silver offering today ~ Gotta love the silver rhinestones all around the neck!!
I plan on spending Sunday evening visiting our dear hostess Beth at Gypsy Fish Journal and all the other Silver Sunday participants, too. You will be amazed at all the beautiful things they share each month!!
