Simple Silver

This post is linked to Silver Sunday, hosted by Beth at Gypsy Fish Journal.

As I am putting together my tablescape for St. Patrick’s Day I’ve chosen simple square green plates, cups and saucers. Beside white linen, I decided on simple silverplate wares.
We begin with two Paul Revere designs: a bowl and a water pitcher

The designs look contemporary, so it’s hard to think that they are of the American Colonial era, designed by silversmith and patriot, Paul Revere.

The tea set is also very simple in design

The only embellishment on each piece is a narrow strip of lines.

The napkin rings are a simple square edged design:

Salt and pepper shakers are a clean egg-like shape:

A three-tier stand is also decorated only with simple curves and swirls:

I made a compote of a bowl with simple Chippendale lines that I affixed to a green candleholder using Dept. 56 Tacky Wax:

This two-part dish can be used for candy, nuts and other small treats

The dish features a graceful twist for a handle:

I usually place a pineapple trivet on the table. This silver one is a traditional design with simple lines.

Please check back on Tuesday March 16 for the complete St. Patrick’s Day Tea setting.

Hi! Found you through Silver Sunday. You have some very nice silver pieces. I really like your tiered server, and those egg-shaped s/p shakers are too cute!

Thanks for sharing. Happy Sunday!

I have a couple of similar dishes, and I think the pattern is actually called Chippendale (etched on the bottom). I also have the Paul Revere bowl, but not the pitcher. It is beautiful in its simplicity. Have a good week. Sally
