Silver still my latest love

I am continuing my search for nice pieces of silver
If you remember the little grapevine jug above started it all

The decanter and goblets are pieces we have had stashed away since our silver wedding anniversary many years ago (25 if I'm honest) yes it's our 50th this year, 6th October and yes I was a child bride.:)

Today we found this beautiful coffee pot,for $25
It matches the jug with the grapevine
We could have purchased heaps more in this shop.
The owner of this cabinet full of goodies we had to choose from is extremely generous with their pricing.
We could have bought the entire cabinet full, ( if we had the money to spare that is)

Isn't it just lovely
Now this is a little dish I pulled out of my cupboard. 
I don't get it out very often
We have a small house and so much stuff :)
I sat it on top of my Grandma's cake stand

It made a nice display for my fruit.
that is until the grandchildren appeared (no pears left)
demolished my display in minutes.:)

Sometimes I hanker for plain china,even though,as you know, I love floral.

This platter is one of three I inherited from my dear mother.
They are Royal Doulton
The teapot also was hers and is Sandler
The creamer and sugar bowl I bought myself
They are Wedgwood Queens.
I love these and they are still available in the shops
I bought them when I was still working though,they are quite expensive.
I so love the shape and plainness of the creamy white.

This teacup trio is so pretty,love the gold patterned edge

I have had this Duchess Tivoli plate for ages,and today found the matching teacup and saucer, Yeh $12

Hope you are having a nice weekend

Love your silver! I love silver too but don't like cleaning it. I guess it is so pretty it makes it worth it though. :)

I love silver finds too. Amazing that you found the coffee to your creamer!

Jeanetteann, that grapevine pattern on the silver is gorgeous. I've never seen any silver like that. I'm still keeping my eye out for silver but trying to only get it if it's really inexpensive. I did manage to get a bunch of silverware at Goodwill for 10 cents each soup spoons and some little forks. I do enjoy seeing your collections. Thanks for stopping by and commenting at Quirky Vistas!

Hi Jeanetteann, your silver is gorgeous.

Shelia said...

Hi Jeanetteann! Oh, you've found some pretty things. Love the silver you've found. I love how you layered your cups in the basket. I've got to do that sometimes.
Thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

My sweet friend.
Such a lovely post! I love the silver pieces. I collect silver sets and have a few very nice tea sets. They make very pretty displays. I never use them. I don't drink coffee or tea.
I adore your gold rimmed china! and the pretty blue floral cream and sugar set in the previous post!
You have the most wonderful collections.
I always enjoy my visits here.
I just spent a few days making over some thrift store finds. I hope you will drop by for a visit. I always enjoy hearing from you!
Will visit again soon.

You and I both share a common love. The Royal Doulton is truly lovely.

Silver is so nice and elegant looking. However, it is a pain to keep polished.

Hi Jeanetteann,
I love your silver! That is something I have never collected. I think it's gorgeous, but I am just not a fancy gal. lol! Your pieces are just so unique. Do you have to polish them very often? Your other dishes are beautiful as well. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

This is a beautiful coffee pot and it does match the pitcher perfectly! Silver is definitely a lovely thing to collect. I am with you on creamy white dishes - they're quite special. I love your heirloom pieces - I know they'll be treasured for a very long time. I appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
