Today is my 36th birthday and ML gave me some vintage silver plate flatware that belonged to RJ's Grandma LaVerle. I don't have complete place settings, but do have at least six of everything. These pieces have a wonderfully detailed grape and vine pattern known as "Vintage".
All the knives, dinner forks, salad forks and soup spoons are marked "1847 Rogers Bros". There is also a ladle and plenty of serving spoons.
The salad forks are really decorative.
The butter knife has an interesting "twisted" handle.
The dessert spoons have a pointed tip - not sure why?
Serving fork and ladle.
These spoons have a long skinny handle -perhaps used for ice cream sundaes!
I had to google how to set a proper place setting!
The plates are also vintage from RJ's grandma - I love the crest!

My sister KJ also sent me a birthday package today! A vintage tea towel of the year I was born ~ 1976! As you might of guessed I have a collection of vintage tea towels.
Hope you had a wonderful and thrifty day!
