I was rooting around in the back of the dining room hutch the other day, looking for a trivet, when I came upon a box I'd never seen before. Now you must know that the hutch, and indeed the house, belonged to my parents before we were lucky enough to inherit it. Cleaning out attics and closets and such became something of a treasure hunt for us. But I thought we had discovered all there was to find. Apparently not.
Opening up my mystery box, I found these little forks and spoons. I guess I need to get out the silver polish, but in the meantime, does anybody know what these may be for?
Here is a picture of them next to a dinner fork, so that you can get an idea of scale.
I also found this little silver salver. I swear it was like my very own thrift shop, only better.
Somebody pinch me. Am I dreaming?
