So I thought for today I’d pick more items from our Antique Silver Gifts category. I haven’t written a blog on our Antique Silver in a while so I decided it’d be great to talk about them once again because they truly are stunning and classsic. You will not be disappointed! Every piece of our Antique Silver absolutely has it’s own story to tell and comes rich in history and background. An Antique Silver piece not only looks beautiful but you will feel like you’ve got your own piece of history sitting in your house.
Make sure you keep reading for more information on specific Antique Silver pieces that you’ll all love!
First up, I decided to talk to you about a wonderful Silver Brooch we have in. This Antique Solid Silver Alexander Ritchie Celtic Brooch was made in 1910 and is just so beautifully designed and expertly crafted by the renowned Silversmith from Iona, Alexander Ritchie. I really love the pattern and detail on the front of this brooch because I think it adds that little bit extra to an already stunning piece of art.
This Silver Brooch would make a wonderful collectors item or would be great to give to someone on a really special occasion like an anniversary or a birthday. Whoever you may be giving it to would be absolutely thrilled with something so magnificent and authentic looking. If you wish to wear it, you can see the pin in the image above which would secure it onto your garments. Everyone would be asking where you got such a fine-looking and striking Solid Silver Brooch.
Next, I really wanted to present to you this next Silver Christening Spoon. It is a valued tradition to present a newborn whom is about to be Christened with a Christening Spoon to commemorate their big day. So, how about giving them a Christening Spoon that is both Solid Silver AND an Antique?
I chose this Vintage Arts and Crafts Solid Silver Hallmarked Christening Spoon made in Edinburgh 1937. It was handmade by the renowned Edinburgh Artist Silversmith Euphemia Miller. The Christening Spoon has a wonderful hand hammered finish and incredible wire work design handle. The craftsmanship and talent that has gone into this spoon makes it something truly special.
It really is a rare and beautiful Christening spoon and is in excellent condition. It would make an absolutely perfect Christening gift because it has so much meaning and history in it. You may choose to engrave a short, personal message onto the bowl of the spoon to signify a DoB, Christening date and/or name.
The last item I have chosen for today is another Solid Silver Spoon. I have chosen this very fine and Rare George II Silver Dog-Nose Rat-Tail Table Spoon. It has squashed but readable London hallmarks for 1755 and makers mark of Paul Callard. I really like the subtle yet bold detail at the very top of this spoon. I think it adds more interest and uniqueness to the Silver Spoon as a whole.
This Solid Silver Spoon is in superb condition and is a very rare and collectable spoon from a highly sought after maker. So if you’re enthusiastic about collecting Antique Solid Silver Spoons then this would fit into your collection extremely well. Even if you are not a collector then it would still be great to say you own something that is rich in history and is a collectable.
I hope today you have found these Antique Silver Gifts as intriguing as I find them. For me, the fact that you can own something that looks almost new yet you know was made many years ago is just incredible. I’d never take my eyes off them! Guaranteed to last a lifetime, these Antique Silver Gifts are perfect for everyone and anyone.
