Got silver

I am getting so fond of vintage silver. Never really had any before I started blogging and seeing all the beauteous silver in pics of other peoples homes and decor. This weekend I was perusing ebay and was the only bidder on a vintage hotel silver finger bowl from The Waldorf Astoria in NYC. There was only 2 minutes left on the auction so I bid the $2.99 minimum and won!!!!!
I just got it and loooooove it!!!

I am so curious as to just whose fingers were in this finger bowl. What were they eating that they had to use a finger bowl, etc. Was it Marilyn Monroe eating peel and eat shrimp? Was it a past president eating sticky buns for breakfast in the presidential suite?
The bottom of the bowl is engraved with The Waldorf Astoria so I know this to be a true piece and am so glad to now own it

  1. You too? I'll have a lot at the Big Flea this weekend! A few months ago, I was at a killer annual sale, and bought 10 silver trays for $2 apiece, as well as some other stuff. I think I just might need to blog about it! It's so weird that sometimes you're into it and just gotta have it!
