Vintage Shopping test # 18



 Hi Everyone
 Happy Monday

Are you ready to test your
 vintage shopping skills again
 here are two domed butter servers
both of the butter dishes above have a silver patina 



 One of these  butter servers
is real hotel silver worth $65 dollars
the other is a reproduction and sells for $16 dollars 

The first butter server has a
 beautiful beaded detail all the way around the plate


 The second butter server is smaller 
and has the most beautiful silver shine
{you can see my reflection} 


As you can see both servers have a small knob
 on the top of the dome 


Both servers also have glass inserts to hold the 
small butter pats


It is always fun to serve butter in a dome dish
 it gives the table such an elegant feel


Do you think you know which domed butter dish
 is the
 real vintage treasure 
and which one is the new reproduction




 If you chose the dome with the filigree knob
congratulations
 you chose
 the real vintage treasure

Did you guess right




romantic saying for today

"With one look at you my heart was forever yours"

  2. I guessed correctly making my choice based on the knob. The detail on the vintage knob just isn't done today or at least not cheaply.

  3. Ugh! I'm a big fat loser. ;) I would take either though because they are both elegant and beautiful. Thanks for the lesson!

  6. Hee hee hee. This was fun! Thanks for the entertainment. Huge vintage fan, mostly 30s-50s (wrote a vintage novel girlinthejitterbugdress.com), but I do tea parties too. I guessed right, but it was close!

  7. Hi Pam, I got it right but I had to think about it. Thanks!

  8. These are both pretty and I did guess the less shiny one because of the beaded detail on it. What a great find especially with the glass dish intact. Have a great day!
