Surprise in Victoria Magazine

Do you get excited when something you have shows up in a magazine? I do...kinda fun! When I got my Victoria magazine issue for January/February 2016...

I was surprised to recognize the silver flatware used in a photo shoot on pages 51-54 called The Allure Of Luxurious Linens, as the same as them last remnants of a set of sterling silver we have in in one of our websites, Antiques And Teacups on Etsy...cool!

We had had the entire set from an estate several years ago, but only have a few pieces left...and it is a gorgeous set of 1930s International Silver Company, USA sterling in the Prelude pattern. But how fun to see it in Victoria!

All that's left are 4 dinner knives...one is a slightly different size...4 cocktail forks and an oyster or lobster fork. But I certainly understand why the Victoria stylist chose the pattern because it is beautiful! Very fun!


  1. That's my mother's silver pattern! It is beautiful. She's had it for almost 70 years now.

  2. The silverware is gorgeous Ruth and it would be exciting to know you have some.

  3. It's pretty, but the forks are very pretty. They look like they are for seafood or appetizers. xoxo

  4. I really like the forks! It is a lovely pattern, Ruth!


Thanks for visiting and we love to hear from you! We read every comment. If my husband's health permits, I love to visit andreply. Have a wonderful day and a cuppa tea always at hand! :)
