Gathered together with grateful hearts - hand stamped serving spoon, vintage

6 item(s) available

Add a little grace to each and every meal with this hand stamped silver serving spoon. A perfect hostess or housewarming gift - or a lovely treat for your own family table.Hand stamped with the sentiment .. gathered together with grateful hearts, it perfectly expresses the feeling of the family table.

Each spoon will be unique and silver patterns will vary - each is a genuine vintage silverplate item, most dating from the 1940's to the 1960's. As they have seen many celebrations over the years they will show some gentle signs of wear. I've always felt that the history that they show makes them more interesting and beautiful ( much as it does for antique people ). I hand stamp the sentiment, letter by letter in a classically elegant lowercase font and polish them to a gift giving shine to create what will hopefully become an heirloom.

Serving spoons are approximately 8.5 inches long. As they are genuine antique silverware, they will need to be hand washed.

This listing is for one "Gathered together with grateful hearts"spoon.  Coordinating tableware is available in the shop, please stop by and take a peek-- I offer a growing selection of pieces and welcome custom orders

     I was born old .. not in a Benjamin Button sort of a way,  but in a hot tea, old house, wooly sweater sort of a way.   I've always appreciated the craftsmanship and beauty in all things old and loved.   The way old floors creak when you walk on them and old books smell when you open them.  
     Antique silver is of course a favorite.  The thought that these pieces have been here since long before I have.  I wonder at the hands that have held them and the celebrations they have been witness to.  I spend weekends trolling estate sales and antique auctions -- not looking for perfect, just looking for beautiful.   I love them even more when I can find them a bit neglected and take them home to polish them back to beautiful.  It's almost like opening an incredible gift under a simple craft paper wrapping.  
    I have been stamping jewelry for years and only recently thought to stamp silverware.  It is so much more personal and I love that my pieces become quirky valentines, sweet momentos of bigger moments, and family heirlooms.
   It has truly brought my loves of antiquing and crafting to one very happy place for me.... thank you for letting me share it with you !
