Can You Tell Me What This Is?

As bad as I have been feeling, I have to admit I got my grandaughter to take me to the Goodwill store yesterday. That is when I spied this item I purchased.

Now my questions to you are, what is it? Should I try to polish the silver tray with silver polish or paint it with a silver paint to freshen it up? What liquers are you supposed serve in the glasses? How much should I try and sell it for?



  1. Nancy, I'm not sure what it is, but I think it would be great to serve little snaks or something like that. I would just clean a small portion of it with a silver cleaner and see how it turns out before you do all of it. Love those glasses also! Looks like you found some great buys. Blessings... Daphne

  2. I am so glad to hear that you were able to go to Goodwill. I love going and may even be a bit addicted to thrifting. I am not sure what it is either,it is very unique.If it were mine,I probably wouldn't polish or paint it unless it is really worn or tarnished. I will be praying that you have a good week ahead of you,one with renewed strength.

  3. I just learned about using ammonia on these things, use small damp, soft brush and see how it turns out. let me know

  4. I love the images on your blog, I am going to get a lot of inspiration and just eye candy going through the archives ( I am new to the blog). A lot of them seem somehow different to what I have seen elsewhere, which is good..

    I really just wanted to say hello. I am very sorry, very sorry to hear of your ill health at the moment. Sending all my best wishes to you.

    That's an interesting piece. Not sure if I can help with the questions much, sorry. I would polish it up and see how it looks before decided about the silver paint.

  5. I am having a hard time finding you and I want to say thank you for all of your kind words and for signing up as a follower. Look forward to hearing from you again.
    love to you and your's,
