Show & Tell Friday AND Silver Sunday

This is a double event post for Show & Tell Friday with Cindy & Silver Sunday with Beth. I will be gone for my class with Diane Cook but, I didn't want to miss playing with all of you. So, let's start with the photo above. I love the SILVER candlestick lamps. They have beautiful beaded silk shade & they have a wonderful GOLDEN GLOW when the lights are low. In front of them are photos of my MUCH LOVED & often talked about Grandmother. To the left of her photos is one cup & saucer from her "Company Dishes".
A little close up of the SILVER candlestick (& Grandma).
Another fairly new obsession of mine is pretty shakers. I wish you could see the sparkle of the cut crystal a little better in these photos. They are beautiful!!!!!! I bought them for myself while out Christmas shopping one day last month. The SILVER tops are in good shape. Often the tops of the salt shaker has been corroded & the crystal etched by the salt. These are perfect.
Here are a few of the ones I already had in my collection but, the tall beauties in the back were one of my gifts from SANTA this year (thank "honey" I love them). Again their crystal is in wonderful shape & the cut exquisite. But, the SILVER tops do a few tiny dents in them. They are much older than the ones in the photo above. The dealer was guessing early 1900's
And the last item for SILVER Sunday is my silver candy dish. I thought it appropriate to share since Valentines Day is coming up soon. I love the work on this piece.
So, which of my treasures is your favorite today? I'll be a bit late getting around to visit all of you since I'm in class but, I'll get there ASAP. Now you know how to go see the others playing... the buttons are on the sidebar & will take you there in one click. Have a wonderful weekend & THANK YOU for stopping by to visit & for leaving a comment. HUGS!
