After reading Manuela's blog here http://pleasuresofhomemaking.blogspot.com/ on displaying silverware, and as always she is so creative! I decided to do a short post on some of my family silver. These pieces were my grandmother's, I never knew my Grandparent's on my dad's side, they were deceased before I was even thought of. I heard stories from dad who grew up in Hollywood CA in the 1930's and 40"s. His parents were very wealthy and had servants, who partially raised my father. Then the great depression came and they lost just about everything and then his father died while my dad was a teenager, so he and my grandmother did the best they could. I believe that many of the family heirlooms were sold, many for far less than their worth.
My parents currently have a few items, mostly some china and a couple of pieces of leaded glass ware. I recently aquired the few pieces of silverware. I remember as a youngster, pulling out all of these treasures and expecially shining the silverware and seeing the details appear magically. Even now I love to find a piece of silver and bringing it back to it's intended glory.
