VINTAGE SILVERWARE

I guess I should say “silver plated flatware,” but you get the idea.

If you’ve been on my blog before and noticed my photography, you might have also noticed the propping, and that I love things with a patina, character, or that just look old.  Scratches, splotches, a little wear and tear – it all points to an item that’s been used, or, “preloved” as some vintage stores now refer to their clothing. Each of these layers adds texture and character to an image, and flatware is a particularly fun space to play around in.  I particularly love vintage deco flatware for its geometric designs and elegant shapes. The best part? You can buy lots of flatware for under a dollar a piece, if you keep your eyes peeled.  ebay.com
