I have been collecting old silver plate pieces for years. One of my favorite collections are old children's cups. What is most pleasing to me about old silver plate is the tarnished patina.
Silver looks soft and pretty up against a bright white cabinet or table.
Fine intricate details, such as the floral pattern on the plate above and the ivy on the chalice below, lend an extra special look to a romantic or cottage style decor.
Silver plate pedestals and bowls are the perfect accompaniment to hold a favorite collection and to help add height to a vignette.
This antique Victorian sugar bowl could be used to hold a sweet bouquet of flowers and display on a bedside table. How wonderful to wake up to the scent of fresh picked roses.
Creating beautiful displays is easy by pulling together various textures and collections. All it takes is a sweet bowl, special pieces and a little imagination.
