Another really cool find this week. This time at an auction. A lot of Sheridan Silver Co. hollow ware was up for sale. It included a footed waiter’s tray, a tea pot, sugar bowl with lid and a tall creamer. We got it for a good price. It was very tarnished so today I drug out the silver polish (I use Weiman’s Silver Cream) and began the task of cleaning the silver plate.
This is what I started with (forgot to take the before picture with sugar bowl and creamer, but here are the tea pot and tray):
Here’s a shot with the sugar bowl cleaned compared to the still tarnished tray and tea pot:
This particular pattern seems to be the Sheridan pattern SDN15. The tray is HUGE. It measures 30 inches long (from outside edge of handles) and 17.5 inches deep. It weighs a ton! The tea pot is approximately 10″ tall to the top of the ornate finial. The sugar bowl is about 7″ to the top of the lid and the creamer is also about 7″ tall.
The tray is being sold separate from the 3 piece tea set in the booth. Don’t they look nice in the Vintage With A Twist booth?
