Polishing silverware from Aunt Dede’s estate in preparation for a dinner party here, I discovered this tiny 4-inch long slotted serving piece. Of course, I could google around and discover it’s truth but it would be more fun to ask out there… what is it?
OK, I hear the collective SHE DOES WHAT??? Yes, I polish silver. Makes me feel very Martha. Polishing makes silver finer, deepens and enhances the patina. I’ve only a twice used the dip process that strips tarnish to zero – some pieces I acquired that were a total trainwreck. But after that, I polished them.
Now back to this little sweetie slotted spoony thing, tell me what you THINK is its purpose?
