SILVER SUNDAY - COFFEE OR TEA?

I'm joining Gypsy Fish for Silver Sunday!  Take a look at the other silver here 

I'm a little late on Sunday joining in but it has been one of those 'days'.

My Dad had this silver coffee and tea service made for my Mother.  She has since passed it on to me.  It has been packed away for quite awhile now and has tarnished.  I promise I will shine it up but for today here it is
 
As you can see this is not your normal elaborate silver service but this is more Modern lines
 

The sugar bowl lid shows the interesting design
 

This is the teapot, the coffee pot is a little larger
 

This is the creamer and sugar...I hope you have enjoyed seeing my coffee and tea service.  

Always,
Linda

I am CRAZY about the lines on this set! It's different, but that's just what I love about it. :-)

Thank you very much, I'll have coffee with cream from that awesome Silver Serving Set! No sugar for me, but I'd take the sugar server any time. Wonderful Heirloom....especially since it was custom made for your Mama. I bet it's beautiful when all shiny and silver...such simple lines and design. Oh! I'm baaaaack!

That is a beautiful set, leave it tarnished I say!!! Less work for you and gives it an additional vintage charm :-)
