It's barely still Sunday but I wanted to get this post up--I just spent the last hour spending some of my husband's hard-earned money at an on-line estate auction and realized I hadn't done the "Silver Sunday" thang.
I just found these little napkin rings that I had NO idea existed--they were in a bag with some of Mom's sterling silverware. Oddly, there's one with my name in beautiful script and identifying marks RLB (Rogers Lunt Bowlen, which became Lunt Silversmiths in the mid-50's) STERLING 454. It's a bit smaller than the other three, all marked GORHAM STERLING, and one has Mom's initials. They are so pretty!
In googling around to see what the RLB stood for, I discovered that similar napkin rings are selling for between $30 and $40, even with someone's initials or names.
If I start sharing my ginormous silverplate collection, Silver Sunday will be extended way into next year!
