How many times have you heard people talk about the "good" china they never use? Or the crystal that's just for "special" occasions? Well, this set of horn handle salad servers in Irish sterling silver from the 1880s is very special to me, and I use them all the time!
It's actually quite rare to find such an old set in which the horn hasn't begun to peel or crack. You can tell somebody really loved these pieces; in fact, even they probably considered them too good for everyday use. Lucky for me, because I don't need a special occasion to use my best things. These salad servers certainly look formal, but pair them with an antique wooden salad bowl and you have an interesting and unexpected combination. So, what are you waiting for? Order in and break out the silver!
