A Little Thrifting

Gentle Friends, out and about over the weekend I found a few fun things....

... a super cut glass and sterling overlay tray, an early transferware soup plate and a really nice pice of Limoges....
________________

You know what a sucker I am for cut glass and when there is some sterling involved I really can't resist.  When I first saw this tray in a pile of other plates and trays I knew immediately what it was, I picked it up and saw the price was only $2.00 - I knew it was coming home with me....  here's what it looked like in the store and when I got it home.....

.... the thick applied silver decoration was totally black....

... with a lot of elbow grease and a little silver polish.....

... I ended up with a lovely "new" piece!!

That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again!!

Take care,
edgar

You have such a good eye for beautiful things, even when they are not at their best. You know just what to do to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. I just love seeing your treasures!!! :-)
